Part of a series of innovative home group Bible studies, the material in this book is aimed at encouraging Bible study within the context of exploring topical issues in a Biblical way. All the studies in the series are based on popular books or films.;The studies are designed to be creative and thought-provoking. Each section has a range of questions or options from which the leader can tailor the study to suit the group. Some of the themes explored in the Matrix study are* Reality and Truth - how do we know what is real? What do you say to someone who thinks life is an illusion? Does finding Jesus mean stopping searching?; Technology - has technology improved your ability to communicate? Is it OK if new technological advance is driven by consumer demand?; Freedom* what does it mean to be a slave to sin? What is true freedom? How realistic is it to work for political, social or personal freedom in a fallen world?; Faith - is it possible to live without faith in anyone or anything? Why does God test our faith? Can people see that you have faith in God?
Christians have been accused of pushing their own interpretations of The Matrix too far. But the symbolism is impossible to ignore. As in the film, believers argue for a world view that takes into account realms beyond that which we see, smell, and touch. But what is real? How so we recognize what is true? Many people in our world wonder what life is about, seeking to find the purpose of and for their existence, and want to experience freedom to do as they desire, and live life free from rules and boundaries. Others wonder how they can know for sure what truth is, and want to know who and what they can trust, to give them the answers they are searching for. These are the issues that Connect: The Matrix deals with. * Innovative, Contemporary Home Group Bible Studies * Includes Leaders Notes * 4 Week Studies *Background reading and online discussion groups at www.connectbiblestudies.com These small group studies link a passion for the Bible to a desire to be relevant to today's society. The material is produced in sets of four studies, each set based on a secular book, film or song, which is attracting a great deal of popular attention. The topical issues raised by these are explored from a Biblical perspective and group members are encouraged to link God's Word to the world.
