What is the most important thing for you to do today? It is to love God with all that you are: body; soul; mind (Mark 12:29–30). But how do you love God with your mind?

So how can BiblicalTraining.org help you train your mind to love God?
Do you study the Bible to gain knowledge, or do you attend Bible studies and have quiet times so you can grow in your knowledge of God and then have that knowledge change how you live?

Without the cycle, all you have are facts and God's condemnation (Matt 7:26).
