What if Jesus did not rise from the dead? Would it matter? Would it make any difference to Christianity? These are the questions addressed in this lesson. The text examined is 1 Cor.15:12-20. As you will see; to reject the resurrection of Christ is to reject the gospel of Christ and thus Christianity.
Is the Genesis account of Noah and a universal flood real? Is the story actual history or fiction and fantasy? Can we dismiss this account while holding to the rest of the Bible, including the New Covenant scriptures?
This lesson demonstrates that to reject the account of Noah is reject the rest of the Bible. There is a "domino effect". Please give it some thought.
There are two basic views concerning the origin of human beings on planet earth. One is evolution, i.e. human beings ascending from lower forms of life (evolving)into what we now see. The second view is one of creation, i.e. the God of the Bible created man as set forth in the Genesis account. This lesson focuses on the evolutionary theory and presents three laws we presently observe that contradicts it.
God's order, roles and responsibilities in the home and church for the male and female genders find their "roots" in the Genesis account. New Testament writers like Paul and Peter confirm this. This lesson establishes these two truths and their implications.
The world we live in is in a "hurry & worry" mode. Cp. Matt.6:25-34. Christians must be careful not to get caught up in this worldly current. It is important that we keep focused on Who we belong to; what we are and where we are going. This lesson shares five things we need to stay focused on this coming year.
