Passage: Genesis
Series: 2009 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 59 mins 36 secs
MODERN MAN’S enlightened thinking has failed to provide the answers to life’s great questions: Who are we? Where did we come from? Why are we here? Where are we going? While man has wrestled unsuccessfully with these questions for centuries, the Biblical study of history actually answers them. Sadly, due to the pagan influence of Secular Humanism, history is no longer seen as a witness to Truth but instead has been trivialized into meaningless lists of dates and names without inherent, consistent meaning or purpose. Nothing could be farther from the Truth. A correct understanding of human history inevitably leads to correct Biblical answers to life’s questions. ...

Series: 2011 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference
Duration: 1 hr 7 mins 41 secs
The connection between justification salvation and experiential sanctification cannot be denied. No one can be experientially sanctified apart from first being legally justified before God by faith in Christ. However, the fact of justification does not imply the certainty of experiential sanctification, which is a central tenet of the Reformed view of sanctification. It will be seen that the Reformed model does not adequately handle the details of Scripture, resulting in inconsistencies and vague explanations regarding experiential sanctification. These problems can be solved by abandoning philosophical presuppositions in favor of exegetical analysis of the Scripture. The incorrect connection of inevitable experiential sanctification to the new creature status (justification) demonstrates the Reformed model’s failure to consistently explain the relationship between these two spiritual realities. ...

During this present time of cultural and political division, many, including Christians, wonder if this once great nation can survive. Because most are willfully ignorant of this nation’s historical roots, the bulk of such discussions lack the historical perspective necessary for cogent debate. Regrettably, the greatest knowledge deficit relates to God’s Word, the very area of expertise of our Founding Fathers, who grounded this Republic in the teaching of God’s Word as accurately expounded from many Colonial pulpits. We owe our nation’s very existence to these pastors of different denominational affiliations along the Atlantic coast and the frontier wilderness of the Colonies, men who understood their role in human government and were unafraid to serve publicly as God’s servants and bold communicators of His Truth. Why did these men, in face of great personal danger, choose to teach the biblical principles of governance and civil disobedience and stand firm in those Truths? An understanding of history, human government, and the purpose of God’s gifting to pastors is key to understanding the cause of the original greatness of our country and to regaining the spiritual stability and confidence that sustained our courageous forefathers in their battle for liberty and justice for all. ...
