Welcome to Focus on Truth!
It is very important to focus on the truth! What truth exactly? Well, we need to focus on God and his Word. Focusing on God helps us grow spiritually.

Psalm 119:11 - Your word I have hidden in my heart, That I might not sin against You.(NKJV)
Focus on Truth
Bible Memory | Group
You may join if you would like. However, do not be obliged to do so. There are many other great groups where you can find spiritual encouragement!

1 Thessalonians 5:11 - Therefore comfort each other and edify one another, just as you also are doing.(NKJV)
 

Why should we memorize scripture?

Hebrews 4:12-16 - For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Psalm 119:105 - Your word is a lamp to my feet And a light to my path.

Memorizing scripture is quite important. But at times, we may wonder why? What is the point? Well, the Bible tells us that God's word is like a two-edged sword. If we know scripture then we can use that sword to cut down the lies of sin. The Bible also says that his word is like a lamp to our feet. It can lead us through even the valley of the shadow of death. Imagine that! Encouragement in the darkest of times. So you see, if we memorize scripture, there is so much more we can do. From being encouraged by God's love and steadfastedness, to warning sin off with His words of justice and truth.
Rules

Right, every group needs rules. The rules for this group are quite simple. First, no foul language or putting others down. Theological discussions are permitted if both parties are in clear agreement with no hard feelings. I would ask there to be no advertising as I have personally always felt it to be wrong(I'm not saying it is wrong, that is just part of my personal moral values). If there is anything wrong just ask because I probably won't find it myself! Thanks!

Prayer Requests

James 5:16 - Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much.(NKJV)

If you have any prayer requests feel free to share them and I will pray for you!

Fun Facts About the Bible

The Bible – the best-selling book of all time

(1) The Bible is far and away the best selling book of all time. In fact, it has been on the best seller list for 2,000 years – that’s 100,000 weeks! It is estimated that the Bible has sold over 5 billion copies.

The Bible – the only book to be completely alphabetized

(2) Back in 1890 James Strong, who spent 35 years manually alphabetizing all 750,000-plus words of the Bible, published Strong’s Exhaustive Concordance of the Bible. In addition, the reference and the context of every appearance of that word is given. In Dr. Strong’s original work even words such as: a, an, in, I, etc., are shown, with reference to every occurrence of them. Can you imagine if someone tried to alphabetize every word in Charles Dicken’s masterpiece novel, A Tale of Two Cities? They probably would lock them up in an insane asylum – for what purpose could this ever serve. Only a crazy person would attempt such a foolish project. But the alphabetizing of every word in the Bible has still proven, 130 years after it was first published, to be a fabulous Bible study tool. Once again the Bible has proven itself to be a very unique book with a fascinating history.

The Bible – some statistics

(3) The Bible has a total of 66 books.

39 Books in the Old Testament.

27 Books in the New Testament.

31,173 verses total in the Bible (depending on the translation).

23,214 verses are in the Old Testament.

7,959 verses are in the New Testament.

The whole King James Bible has 788,258 words, 31,102 verses, and 1,189 chapters.



The Bible – no book has been translated into more languages

(4) As of 2019, the entire Bible has been translated into 698 different languages while the New Testament has been translated into 1,548 languages. No other book even comes close.

The Bible – the origin of verse divisions

(5) According to Don Stewart: “The modern Old Testament division into verses was standardized by the Ben Asher family around A.D. 900. However, the practice of dividing the Old Testament books into verses goes back centuries earlier. Modern verse division for the New Testament was the work of Robert Stephanus (Stephens), a French printer. He divided the Greek text into verses for his Greek New Testament published in 1551. The first entire Bible, in which these chapter and verse divisions were used, was Stephens’s edition of the Latin Vulgate (1555). The first English Bible to have both chapter and verse divisions was the Geneva Bible (1560).”
