Lutherville, MD (PRWEB) March 10, 2006
Restyn, LLC, a religious communications company located in Lutherville, MD has released a new Bible study tool, Small Canon Search™, based on the Second Advent Christian™ view of sacred scripture. The search tool is available online at http://www.smallcanonsearch.com as the first biblical search engine indexing only the texts considered canonical by the Second Advent Christian™ movement.
Stephen Simons, the founder of the Second Advent Christian™ movement and a principal at Restyn, explains, “The commonly accepted canon of the Word of God was set by men, not by God. Small Canon Search™ is provided for believers who want to focus their study on God’s revelation without distraction.” The Second Advent Christian™ canon of scripture includes books from the Old and New Testaments and books from the works of Emanuel Swedenborg.
Based on public domain English language versions of the included books, Small Canon Search™ provides basic and advanced search functionality for users and emphasizes reading scripture as a spiritual discipline.
“We are trying to raise an awareness of the difference between the traditions of men and the Words of God,” Simons says, “We believe that all religious texts have value to the study and understanding of history and theology. Redrawing the line between revelation and inspiration is just one of the many ways that Jesus gives us the opportunity to reexamine our traditions and theology in order to discover His eternal message for our lives.”
The Second Advent Christian™ movement was started by Simons in 2005 with the hope of uniting the body of the church through sharing the gospel of Christ’s Second Coming. For more information, visit http://www.restyn.com.
