What is sin? Is it just doing horrific things like murder? Listen to this lesson to hear God’s definition of sin and why all mankind is born with a sin nature.

As we see what is happening in our country today, help us to understand that God is in control and that we can help by praying for our leaders.

“Born again?” What are you talking about?” Listen to this lesson to hear how Jesus answered a man named Nicodemus, a Pharisee and teacher of the Scriptures, who asked Him this question. First, Jesus explained to Nicodemus his need for new life because he, like all the rest of the human race, had been born spiritually dead. Listen to the details which apply to your own life and understand the simple but profound message of the gospel, which tells us that we are born again when we believe in the saving work of Christ’s death on the Cross.

Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 57 mins 44 secs

Do Christians have to quit sinning before they can live the Christian life? Listen to this lesson to learn that because of our sin nature we will never completely cease to sin, but that God’s grace is available for confession of our sins. See that since we are part of the family of God our behavior should not be habitual sinning. Find out the meaning of "flesh" and see who the beloved are. Listen to Peter’s exhortation that we live a spiritually responsible lifestyle.

During this class Dr. Dean mentioned an article published on AmericanThinker.com entitled "The Death of Evangelicalism."

Passage: Matthew 5:9
Series: Matthew (2013)
Duration: 48 mins 59 secs
"All we're saying is give peace a chance." Sound familiar? Listen to this lesson to learn the many meanings of peace. See how the peace Jesus was referring to in the Sermon on the Mount was peace between God and man. Learn that we cannot have this peace with God by our own efforts but only when we trust Christ's payment for our sins on the cross. Discover three important questions that must be answered to gain peace and that peace at any price is not what is meant. Note that our mission now as believers is to tell others how to have peace with God so we will be peacemakers and called the sons of God.

Passage: Proverbs 3:1-12
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 1 hr 12 mins 33 secs
This passage is organized into a verse with a command followed by a verse with consequences, and ends in two verses regarding correction. There are a number of irresistible consequences for obedience to God’s commands. You would think no one could consider turning away from such a positive, rewarding course resulting in a life with wisdom, guidance from God, lack of fear, direction over our finances and protection leading to abundant living. The reality of disobedience is God’s experience with man, so in the end He encourages us even when correction becomes the exercise of His love for us. God’s correction assures us that abandonment of His own is not a part of God’s nature, and because of that, we are blessed even in His chastening.

Passage: Colossians 3:20-21 & Ephesians 6:1-4
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 51 mins 8 secs
The family is where the next generation is trained. Its health is related to the health of a society. Honoring parents shows humility and respect which is the essential response to authority. A leader must first learn to follow. Observe a child’s response to the parent of the opposite sex as an indicator of the way he will relate to his spouse. In Proverbs, verses concerning how to train children are practical guides of implementation. See the nature of Proverbs as wisdom sayings, not promises. Understand what it means to “train up a child” and when that begins. When is the “rod of correction” appropriate? What is the common starting point of every baby? Is discipline always negative? What is the direction of our culture regarding child rearing? How does discipline relate to God’s love for us? What was God’s ultimate expression of judicial punishment?

Passage: Colossians 3:18-21 & Ephesians 5:25-33
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 1 hr 2 mins 14 secs
The pattern for a husband’s love for his wife is a model of Christ’s love for His church. There is comparison also to Christ’s relationship of love for the Father and the love a husband has for his own body. Apart from cultural, transitory, romantic love, this is a broader, eternal, mental attitude love grounded in the character of the one who loves and his knowledge of God. Like God’s covenant love for Israel, a husband’s love will not be disrupted by circumstances. There is an element of substitution in the comparison of a husband’s love to the sacrifice of Christ for His church. Learn the definition of love and how it functions objectively only when it conforms to God’s intention in scripture.

Passage: Colossians 3:18-21
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 1 hr 12 mins 18 secs
Like relationships within the Godhead, the divine institution of marriage is defined through roles, with equality in person and distinctness in role. Authority and submission are foundational. Without authority we are left on our own, doomed to failure in our relationship with God and every relationship that flows from that pattern. If the idea of submission makes you want to fight for control, look carefully at the submission of our Savior. Successful marriages function through roles God has prescribed. Circumstances, feelings and cultural trends don’t alter Truth. See the effective analogy of dance and marriage; success in marriage is a function of the correct application of authority and submission carried out within marriage’s unique framework of intimacy, love and respect.
