Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

History of Doctrine (2023)

January 2023 - May 2023

A study of the historical development of selected doctrines, with attention to the development of each theological theme from the Church Fathers to the present day.

This course seeks to define the origins and development of the theology of the church. It will trace the historical development of the major branches of systematic theology, noting specifically the formulation and modification of each branch from the early church to the present day. In addition, an attempt will be made to define the major formulation of doctrine, whether orthodox or heterodox. Finally, an investigation of the contemporary trends in Protestant thought will enable the student to gain perspective on the issues with which the church is grappling.
