A recent study at the University of California at Berkeley found that between 2000 and 2002, the total information of the world doubled. In many fields, such as life sciences and space technology, knowledge is accumulating at speeds that are impossible to keep up with.”

The prophet Daniel was told that knowledge would be increased during the time of the end (Daniel 12:4 Daniel 12:4But you, O Daniel, shut up the words, and seal the book, even to the time of the end: many shall run to and fro, and knowledge shall be increased.
American King James Version×
). This almost appears as an understatement now. Regrettably, the most important type of knowledge—the knowledge of God—is not doubling and trebling every few years or so. Mankind has a habit of suppressing biblical knowledge. Even in free nations like the United States and Britain, where Bibles are available everywhere, secularism is stunting the spread of true biblical information.

You can swim upstream against these secular currents by enrolling in our free 12-lesson Bible Study Course and requesting or downloading our free booklet How to Understand the Bible.
