What’s so important about teaching the foundations of handing on the faith? Let’s discuss it! Then allow us to briefly explain the basic necessities of knowledge for studying and handing on the faith.
With this good, but incomplete knowledge, we then rely in human methodology to teach others the truth. Human methodolgy is necessary, but inefficient when dealing with Divine Revelation that is not understood and witnessed to in an organic and complete way.

In essence, we hope provide you with a easy to understand teaching on the pedagogy of God.
