Foundations of the "Like Precious Faith"

(Thread begun by: RandyP )
kjv@2Peter:1:1 @ Simon Peter, a servant and an apostle of Jesus Christ, to them that have obtained like precious faith with us through the righteousness of God and our Saviour Jesus Christ:

Introduction


I have often found it helpful in my own journey and in the searching so of those near to me seeking solid biblical counsel to have a clear starting point directing me back to the uncompromised of where our faith is from, what it is in, how it is applied, why we believe it to be what it is. Of late that grounding point more and more has become kjv@2Peter:1; Peters "like precious faith" discourse.
While no one verse or chapter in the Bible is all inclusive of the details of the overall faith, this I find serves well in the as a top down overview of the essentials of a fruitful productive well disciplined faith. I use it as an inventory of the present and a diagram of how to get back on the right track. Perhaps it will be the same guide for you!
Now maybe you are at a point in you faith where what you currently are believing and or doing just isn't working as it should. kjv@2Peter:1 works so well for us because we can divide it up into three essential building blocks:

  • FoundationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith - (This page) The core foundational beliefs kjv@2Peter:1:1-4
  • ApplicationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith - The means of applying the core foundation to daily living kjv@2Peter:1:5-11
  • JustificationsOfTheLikePreciousFaith - The reasoning we put these foundational elements into constant remembrance and put them forward in our lives kjv@2Peter:1:12-27

  • No matter what your present situations is, the tougher the better, I think that this essential flow sheet chapter and the many links provided will guide you forward into a much more productive place. (Please be sure to listen to the companion podcast of this series linked to below as a good introduction as well!)
    Study hint 1: Click on verse numbers once then once again to get to a parallel rendering of the KJV with Strongs Greek Lexicon mapping and Treasury of Scriptural Knowledge links.
    Study hint 2: Click on the underlined words and phrases to get to the Seeker search page for that word or phrase. There you will find a wealth of resources such as dictionaries and system look ups.
