The 4th national retreat of the churches of Christ took place July 9-12. The retreat was held at the dormitory of the Naval Academy near a beach a few minutes' walking distance from downtown Gdynia. "Reliability of the Bible" was our theme and our speaker was Curt Niccum from USA. Curt has dedicated his life to studying the original languages of the Bible and currently teaches New Testament Greek at ACU in Texas.In several lessons presented by him and translated by Robert Nowik from Gdynia, we had an opportunity to get a better understanding of the transmission process of the text of the Bible over the centuries. Among other things we learned what is the difference between canonical and inspired writings, that the Bible is the best documented book, as compared to the great classics of literature, as well as the fact that the church did not create the canon of the Bible, but that the inspired books of the Bible constitute the basis for the church. Altogether 41 people participated in the retreat representing 4 different congregations of the Lord's church.
