Colossians (2011)
Sun, Sep 16, 2012
by Robert Dean
Passage: Colossians 3:18-21
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 53 mins 57 secs
Critics discredit this verse as something out of the culture of Paul’s time that has no impact in our culture today. But scripture’s clear idea of gender roles had been revealed since Genesis 1. The world tries to define equality through roles while God defines equality in our very essence. The argument has been extended to the absurd in discussions about the gender of God. We are in the image of God. God is not in the image of man. There are references to God in masculine, feminine and neuter forms. Apart from Jesus in His incarnation, God doesn’t introduce himself as a man or woman, but as the leader, Almighty God. Learn about role distinction, authority and equality within the Godhead and how that has application in the structure of marriage relationships.

Passage: Colossians 3:18-21
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 56 mins 42 secs
See how the creation of a comic book character in the 1940s fed into the distortion of role God has for women and how it was accomplished with allure and humor, building to a fever pitch around the goal of female empowerment as a good thing. In the past, Satan’s subversion of truth required subtlety. Today Truth has been replaced by blatant lies that need no half truths as a disguise for acceptance. Learn how role distinction AND equality in essence preexisted the Fall yet remain God’s modus operandi for us as spiritual beings in a fallen world. In what ways can we use the creation narrative to demonstrate God’s intention regarding roles, authority, submission, accountability and a pattern for human history?

Passage: Colossians 3:18-21
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 1 hr 0 mins 34 secs
Marriage can be a great source of joy, or suffering, depending on whose rules of relationship you apply. See how relationship roles predate creation and how elements of creation communicate and reinforce God’s design in role distinctions. Where is the equality in marriage? Does headship imply greater value? Does submission imply lesser value? See how God’s original purposes for man and woman were directly frustrated because of the Fall. Appreciate how God did not abandon us in the hopelessness of judgment but provided a solution in ultimate redemption through Jesus Christ and spiritual recovery in time through the Holy Spirit and the Word.

Series: 1 Thessalonians (2013)
Duration: 59 mins 31 secs
Time for a gratitude check! Are you near the top of the gratitude gauge or sunk near the zero? If you're too stuck on thinking about yourself to notice what God and others are doing for you, it's hard to be thankful. Listen to this lesson to see how having an entitlement mentality destroys us and our culture. See how the Apostle Paul never failed to express thanksgiving in his epistles. Discover the true meaning of grace and how it impacts our gratitude.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:3
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 59 mins 18 secs
One God. Three Persons. If this sounds confusing, listen to this lesson to come to a greater understanding of the important doctrine of the Trinity and the plurality of the Godhead. See that beginning in the first book of the Bible, God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit are present. Learn who the Angel of the Lord is. Begin to understand the role of God the Father and His relationship to Israel. See how His Son, Jesus Christ as the Son of Man, fulfilled the destiny of the human race. As you come to know more about God, let it lead to a greater appreciation of Him and all He does for us.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:3 & Psalm 2
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 6 mins 31 secs
What difference does it make whether I understand the Trinity? To tell the truth, it gives me a headache just to try to think about it. If this is how you feel at times, listen to this lesson to learn all the rich benefits that come from understanding the Godhead. See that the first person is God the Father and the second person is God the Son, the Lord Jesus Christ. Understand they are identical, co-equal, and co-infinite. Explore passages in the Old Testament where Jesus Christ is called the Angel of the Lord and learn what that means. Find out the significance of names in the Bible. See that the more you know about God, the more you can praise and appreciate Him.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:3
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 56 mins 43 secs
Want a sure cure for discouragement over all the evils in the world? Try centering your attention on the Godhead. Find out that all three persons share the same attributes, including justice, and will someday right the wrongs that are being committed. Learn that the Holy Spirit is shown to be a person, the same as God the Father and God the Son. See how His names and acts reveal Him to be divine. Appreciate that there is no problem you have that is too great for the members of the Godhead.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:3
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 58 mins 52 secs
What do you believe about God and why do you believe it? Every generation must decide this for itself. Listen to this lesson to see that many today are questioning whether the Bible is accurate and without error. Understand that when Jesus was on earth He made many claims that He was God and was equal with God the Father. Hear a number of references to God in the Old Testament that are applied to Jesus in the New Testament. Take time to think about your core beliefs about God and study the Word of God so you can explain what you believe.

Passage: 1 Peter 2:18-23
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 28 secs
Are men and women basically the same aside from their physical differences? And are they equal in every way as many assert today? Listen to this lesson to see that God created men and women differently because they have different roles to fulfill. See why this does not mean that either sex is superior to the other and that both are to humble themselves by subordinating themselves to authority. Hear a brief discussion of metaphysics and Darwinism to help us understand that it is God who gives us our rights.
