Survey of the Doctrine
In the Survey of the Doctrine, we breakout the doctrine into its
several sub-subjects and key statements. Your study of each one
will give you a commanding grasp of the whole doctrine. The main,
primary page of the Survey of the Doctrine is
here. The doctrine is broken out into 146 separate parts [usually
a single paragraph or two]. Each part is followed by a
table giving the sub-subject, such as "God vs. Medical Science" or
"Member responsibility" and the key statement matching that topic.
On this page, one can read through the doctrine and each of its
sub-subjects as they come up in the doctrine.
From these sub-subjects, we have made other pages with which you may
study the topics piecemeal. The first is the "sub-subjects
by paragraph." This page simply takes the
primary survey page and removes the doctrine and leaves the key
statements in order, by paragraph number [1-146].

False questions found
at the bottom of the same page. There is also a
printer-friendly version of the questions
The answers come in three different versions:

reference where in the doctrine the question and answer originated.
At the top of the Check-Text page is a table linking the number of the
test question with the numbered paragraph of the doctrine.
This sub-section brings together all the text, audio and video we have
on the subject of Healing. It incorporates links to the Bible
Study and Survey of the Doctrine sub-sections. Three notable pages
