Dr. Dean about BibleLines
Here is why Dr. Dean decided to be a part of our mission as an advisor and Content Partner:
"The most important thing to me, in this last quarter, of my life on this earth, is to participate in God's plan for humanity (in fact, I am currently writing a book on "God's Master Plan"). God's plan is for more than "saving" humanity from sin, but to make disciples, who will be kings and priests in His kingdom. God wants His human creation to live up to His initial design for fruitfulness and dominion (Genesis 1:28). Clearly Adam and Eve weren't prepared for the job, so God is working to prepare humanity (Adam and Eve's descendants) for the end of His plan: ruling and reigning with Christ for all eternity in the New Jerusalem! In order for humans to be ready for ministering and co-reigning with Christ, there needs to be growth well beyond salvation.
BibleLines is a vital resource for helping to create true disciples of Christ and mature believers for all the exciting things that God has planned for us. It is such an honor to be an Advisor for such an important venture."
