Passage: Romans 1:26-27
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 2 secs
God brings three increasingly harsh judgments on idolatrous cultures. The second and third relate to sex role confusion: same sex perversion and gender role confusion and distortion. This fits within the pattern of sin and judgment since the Fall. This lesson explores the causes and circumstances.
Colossians (2011)
Sun, Jun 19, 2011

Passage: Colossians 1:18
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 56 mins 19 secs
Jesus is sufficient and necessary. He provides all we need, and He alone can provide all we need. The first line of evidence is that He is the Creator with all that implies. The second line of evidence is that He is the head of the church, the authority over the church. Authority is a crucial concept involved in headship. What does it mean that Jesus is head over the church? What does it mean that Christ is the head of man, and man the head of woman? These are just some of the questions answered in this lesson.
Colossians (2011)

Passage: Colossians 1:20-21 & Ephesians 2:11-17
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 50 mins 48 secs
As human beings under condemnation, we really do not want to think about reality, but God's Word forces us to. We have all been tainted by sin and exhibit hostility toward God. True peace was broken when Adam sinned, and his fall had both spiritual and physical consequences. Full reconciliation is necessary. As we continue our study in Colossians 1:20-21, we look at the correlation to what Paul is teaching in Ephesians 2:11-17. With reconciliation, we see how God transformed hostility to peace, making it possible to have fellowship with a Righteous God by the legal, forensic action accomplished once and for all by Jesus Christ on the cross. What was the distinction between how salvation was taught in the Old Testament compared to the New Testament? Where do atonement and reconciliation fit in?

And how does reconciliation relate to illegal immigrants? The difference between how the Jews had the Messianic hope, but the Gentiles were aliens to the commonwealth of Israel had to be addressed. This lesson reveals how Christ removed the barrier of hostility between Jews and Gentiles that had existed since the Mosaic Law.

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: Acts 14:12-28
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 59 mins 30 secs
Paul and Barnabas Bear Witness to God’s Grace

Fleeing Iconium one step ahead of a murderous plot against them, Paul and Barnabas arrive in Lystra. There they heal a crippled man. The pagan crowds see this and go wild, wanting to worship them as gods with parades and sacrifices. Paul seizes the opportunity to tell them the gospel. Since the people have no Jewish background, Paul must start at ground zero with their innate understanding of God through creation. This lesson answers many questions relevant to our lives today. What does Paul mean when he says this man was crippled from his mother's womb? Is he implying that life begins at conception? Why isn't everyone healed? How should the gospel be presented to those who have no background in reference to the true God? How can creation be used as a tool when we are talking about God to multi-cultural, multi-religious people like the ones we encounter in our daily lives?

Acts (2010)

Passage: Acts 14:12-28
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 8 mins 16 secs
The Apostle Paul's first missionary journey ends with an exhibition of sheer spiritual courage. He and Barnabas endure the wild swings of the pagan crowd in Lystra as they first yell out their adoration of them as gods and then erupt in a wild rage. After stoning Paul, they drag him out of town, but rather than lying low and hiding out, he and Barnabas continue on to Derbe before retracing their steps to teach and encourage the new converts. Explore the role of repentance in salvation, how God blesses all through common grace, and how to witness to those who have suppressed the truth.
Proverbs (2013)

Passage: Proverbs 3:19-35
Series: Proverbs (2013)
Duration: 49 mins 37 secs
Doomsday scenarios can strike terror in hearts in the middle of the night. Stock market crashes. Attacks on our country. Personal problems. Proverbs teaches us that when we focus on the Word of God we can sleep without fear. Just as God used His infinite wisdom to create the world, He offers wisdom to those who make learning and applying His Word a priority. He promises protection and the security that our steps are ordered by Him. Listen to this lesson to learn how creation is the foundation to everything else in the Bible. See how we are to treat those who ask for help with generosity and why we shouldn't envy the wicked when they prosper.
Romans (2010)

Passage: Romans 9:3-5 & John 1:1-5
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 56 mins 57 secs

If you were asked why you believe in the deity of Jesus Christ, how would you answer? Listen to this lesson to understand that when the Apostle John calls Christ the "Logos", he was emphasizing that Christ pre-existed eternally in personal fellowship with God the Father. See how Christ is the Creator of all things and then became flesh as the God-Man, fully human and fully God. Learn how Isaiah in the Old Testament saw all three Members of the Trinity hundreds of years before Jesus Christ was born in Bethlehem.

Also includes Isaiah 7:14, 9:6; Micah 5:2; Colossians 1:15-17; Hebrews 1:3
