Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 11: Worldview

By luther | June 13, 2019 | 0 Comments

We need to understand the difference between trying to prove the Bible is true by extra-biblical evidence and showing that the extra-Biblical evidence agrees with or confirms (or at least doesn’t contradict) the teachings of the Bible.  The problem with trying to prove the Bible is true is that the person’s trust now is built […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 10: Evangelism

By luther | June 6, 2019 | 0 Comments

There are differences between St. Peter’s address in Acts 2 and St. Paul’s address in Acts 17.  The speaker proceeds differently because of the knowledge or lack of knowledge of the hearers with regard to the true God and Creator, sin, death, and the promise of the Savior.  Nevertheless, both speeches use the Bible alone […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 9: Acts 2 and Acts 17

By luther | May 30, 2019 | 0 Comments

In this Bible study, we compare and contrast Peter’s address in Acts 2 with St. Paul’s address in Acts 17. The “sermon” in Acts 2 is made to Jews who already knew the Old Testament.  By means of the revealed knowledge of the Holy Scriptures, they knew that the one true God was the Creator […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 8: Two Religions and Man’s Word

By luther | May 21, 2019 | 0 Comments

There are only two religions in the world:  the true religion of Christianity based on the true and inerrant Word of God and every other false religion which is based on man’s sinful and fallible word.  God’s Word presents the Triune God as the Creator of all things and teaches that when man fell into […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 7: The Left-hand Kingdom and the Right-hand Kingdom

By luther | May 13, 2019 | 0 Comments

The Triune God has entrusted the teaching of natural knowledge to the state/government (called the left-hand kingdom) for the protection of body and possessions and to maintain order in this world.  He has entrusted the teaching of revealed knowledge to the church (called the right-hand kingdom) to impart salvation.  In theses VII-VIII, we have already […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt.6: The Purposes of Natural and Revealed Knowledge

By luther | May 9, 2019 | 0 Comments

In order to proceed in a systematic way, we need to distinguish the natural knowledge which comes from the creation and the conscience, from the revealed knowledge of God’s Holy Word.  God writes the law upon the heart of all men as a curb to control gross outbursts of sin (1 Tim 1:8-10, Romans 2:14-15).  […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 5: The Bible’s Purpose

By luther | April 17, 2019 | 0 Comments

The purpose of the Bible is the salvation of man. The law reveals a knowledge of sin and eternal damnation.  The Gospel reveals the person and work of Jesus Christ.  The Word of God not only presents the foundational content, but also creates the faith which trusts in the free salvation earned by Jesus Christ. […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 4: The Important of Creation Doctrine

By luther | April 11, 2019 | 0 Comments

Having established that the Scriptures do teach a young earth, literal six-day creation, this study shows just how important this teaching is by answering two questions. Is adherence to this doctrine required for congregational membership?  And is adherence to this doctrine required for salvation?  Although church fellowship requires complete agreement in doctrine and practice, a […]

Gospel Reset Bible Class, Pt. 3: The Domino Effect

By luther | April 4, 2019 | 0 Comments

Denying the Scriptural doctrine of a Creator and His six-day creation will have a profound effect on the teachings of the rest of the Scripture.  In this class, we see walk through some of the Scriptural doctrines which are overturned when evolution is allowed to infect the Christian faith.
