If you want to do your own original word studies and research, I haven't seen a Bible program that is better than the free Online Bible:

E-sword is an excellent Bible study program, as the program itself is free and has reasonably priced access to many good and more recent commentaries This program enables you to do exhaustive searches of your commentaries as well as the Bible, which is highly valuable. 

The Word Bible study program is also free, has a lot of cool features, and looks promising, but doesn't have much add-on material available yet.

The Gospel

Have you heard Christ died for our sins, and God raised Him from the dead? Did you know God saves you from hell and gives you eternal life through faith in this finished work alone, not your merits (Jn. 3:16; 1 Cor. 15:1-3; Eph. 2:8-10; 2 Thess. 1:8-9)? This is so man cannot boast, and God alone gets the glory (Eph. 2:8-9).


The grand purpose of creation is to bring glory and pleasure to God in Christ (Eph. 1:1-10; Rev. 4:11). The gospel of Christ's death and resurrection for our sins, achieves this goal by magnifying God's grace and mercy towards undeserving sinners. The purpose of faithguard, is to glorify God, by defending and confirming the gospel of Jesus Christ.
