    Bait of Satan: Living Free from the Deadly Trap of Offense
    by John Bevere (available on Amazon & Christianbooks.com)

Group Mission: develop and defend a Christ-centric point of view, in response to the thoughts and activities of our lives. Our goal will be toward shifting our thoughts and perspectives around to the perspective of our Lord.

Tie to KPC Mission: if we can honestly process personal offense in response to the Lord Jesus, we can be free to walk more honestly and intimately with Him. Being closer to Him, we will love more the things He loves. This will provoke responses that the KPC Mission articulates for us.

In our bible study we will aim to follow this structure:

1: Introduce topic

2. facilitate a Christ-Centric conversation, focusing on the issue(s) introduced by the topic - exploring spiritual and relational consequences and growth opportunities leading individuals and our group towards maturity in Christ.

3. conclude with asking probing questions that beg for thoughtful Christ-centric responses. Answers will not be required of anyone, but encouraged. We hope for heartfelt genuine answers and feel that requires personal meditation.
