The Bible Explained: So Simple, Even a Child Will Get It
Have you ever felt like the bible was so complex that you could not understand most of it? Part of the problem is leaders view the bible as a rule book more than a rescue book.
Here we explain the main message of the Bible in a way that even a child can get it. Newsflash, the core message is not a guide to behaving better. The bible is about having died spiritually and needing to regain that life.
No amount of human effort and outward performance can give us that life. You can avoid sin, never lie, cheat, or steal, but without life you’re doomed for eternity. We need a rescuer. We need Jesus.
This short video (above) will help you understand the bible in a way like never before. Get ready for an awesome message of rescue. Enjoy 🙂

Mike Cynar was raised in a church setting where he frequently noticed that many attendees would eventually drift away. The church labeled these individuals as ‘back sliders’ or ‘fake Christians’ just looking for ‘fire insurance’. However, Mike realized the issue was rarely with these individuals but instead with the church’s message itself. The teachings heavily emphasized behavior improvement and one’s flaws, with only a fleeting mention of one’s identity in Christ. It felt as though every sermon was tailored to the church of Corinth, who as we know or committing sins that even unbelievers don’t partake in. This trend was noticeable not just in one denomination, but across Baptist, Catholic, Pentecostal, and many other churches. Upon understanding the true essence of the gospel – that our righteousness comes from Jesus’ actions, not our own – Mike was inspired to liberate believers from lifeless sermons and reconnect them with the genuine teachings of Jesus. He believes that one can nurture a vibrant and growing bond with Jesus, unhindered by rigid religious practices. And thus, “Jesus Without Religion” was born.
It turns out that it is grace that leads to repentance. And if our heart is to get others to walk in the Spirit and live a godly life, then the best approach is not a beat down sermon, but rather to remind other that it is only when we understand our true identity in Christ that we will live it out. Yes, it’s true, if you’re convinced that God thinks you’re a dirty sinner, you will ultimately continue a lifestyle that mirrors that view, but if you truly believe that even on your worst day, you are called holy, sanctified, justified, and will be presented blameless in the end, well, it turns out this is the secret to living out on the outside what has been worked in to the inside.
