The Doctrine of Scripture

Details

Does it feel like the world is changing quickly? That things we assumed to be “true” or “right” are now up for grabs and being defined by the wind of the cultural moment?

We hear popular church leaders are saying we should ditch the Old Testament in order to reach people for Christ, that God saves everyone and the Bible’s sexual ethic isn’t fit for modern times.

In these days when the truth of the Bible is being challenged and redefined from every direction it’s crucial we know the Scriptures, trust the Scriptures and live the Scriptures.

In this Core Life Training Course I want to help you:

  • Sense the importance of being clear in what you believe about Scripture.
  • Understand the key historic elements of the Doctrine of Scripture.
  • Wrestle with and answer some of the most common criticisms of Scripture.
  • Relate the truth about Scripture to the confusing and difficult issues of real life.
  • Love the Scriptures that are God’s words to us.

Topics

  • What We Believe about the Scriptures Matters
  • God Speaks to Us in the Scriptures (Inspiration)
  • God Tells the Truth When He Speaks in the Scriptures (Inerrancy)
  • You Can Understand the Scriptures (Clarity)
  • The Scriptures are All You Need to Know God (Sufficiency)
  • God Rules All Things through the Scriptures (Authority)
  • God Does the Work of God through the Scriptures (Efficacy)

Details

The rules of gender, marriage, singleness and sexual ethics are changing so fast it's hard to keep up. Sadly, many churches are changing just as quickly to match our culture's new normal. 

But God made human beings with gender and sets out his own purpose for marriage, singleness and sex and he means to be glorified in all of it.

In this event we'll help you...

  • Understand with absolute clarity the God's design for gender, marriage, singleness and sex.
  • Identify the key to living powerfully for God's glory in our confused culture.
  • Sense the overwhelming grace of God promised to us in the Gospel for our sins in these areas.
  • Have confidence sharing the hope of the Gospel with our broken culture that needs it so desperately.

Topics

  • Guys & Girls and God's Word
  • God made Guys and Girls for His Glory
  • The Sex You Want & the Glory God Deserves
  • Marriage & the Glory of God (for singles too)
  • Is Singleness a Crummy Consolation Prize (for couples too)
  • Guys & Girls and the Gospel for God's Glory
