The Bereans were residents of the Macedonian city of Berea. In Acts 17:10-15, we see certain Jews from the area who were especially open to the message of Paul and Silas, using Scripture alone as their standard of judgement. Following after their example, the purpose of this blog is to judge all of life according to that same standard. But the intent is not only to judge all things, but also to live according to those judgements. This is because one who truly hears and understands the word of God is one who also obeys it. If we do not live according to the theological truths we claim to believe, we are deceiving ourselves and the word is not in us (James 1:22-25). Therefore, the goal is not only to discuss theological truths, but to live them as well. This is what it truly means to be a Berean.
