Yep, I did it.
I said I googled answers to BSF questions IN CLASS this week and I got a “Shush” from the teaching leader, shocked expressions from some, and laughs from the others (who use google too).
Just being honest when asked how I found all my references.
When I first began BSF, I’d ask myself when a challenge question came up, “How do these women know these references? I would NEVER know where to find that in the Bible.”
That’s when I started googling.
Because how else am I going to learn where in the Bible to find a passage about love for instance if I DON’T google?
My Bible background was minimal at the time. I didn’t know the books of the Bible or where anything was. I vaguely knew the New Testament was about Jesus. That’s about it.
Even now, I’ll know generally in what book to find something but I still have to google.
For instance, I needed to know where to find the passage “you make everything work for my good”. So I googled that and came up with Romans 28:8–the exact passage I was seeking but had no idea (besides the New Testament) where to look.
It’s the quickest, easiest way to learn where passages are in the Bible.
And I learn! I read other passages too that come up about a topic and WHAM! I know God better!
I couldn’t ask for more than that.
And, yes, I had help. From Google. An idea that God planted in someone’s mind. An idea we all can learn from.
