How about Church History???

Should followers of Jesus study Church History at all?? Some say all we need is the Bible, the Spirit and our own understanding and we will know what God wants us to know and how to live our lives. I agree we do need God’s Word (both living, Jesus, and written, The Bible) to understand what He wants for our lives. BUT I believe to be the most well rounded follower that one can be, at least a rudimentary understanding of the history of the Church is needed.
Since God works through people and events in history we should attempt to acknowledge this and investigate how those followers responded to their surroundings while simultaneously attempting to stay true to their beliefs.

More later.
