True greatness is serving!
I was challenged by the course on True Greatness to examine my own heart and my motives for serving God. Am I serving God so others look up to me? I came to the realization that I am not fit for service until I am willing to be an obscure servant others barely notice. Only when I want to see God use others mightily can He really use me the way He wants to.
I found this course to be very educational and I am inspired to put what I’ve learned into practice in my future studies.
Understanding these things sure is good!
A well-presented set of teachings on this subject
I took this course as an Anabaptist from an Anabaptist family. However, I never was given the thorough set of instructions provided by this course. I now feel more grounded in my faith and better able to explain my faith to others.
Lots of interesting nuggets from the early church.
1st and 2nd interesting
Especialy the 1st and 2nd were very interesting.
Church Life: AD 150
Greatly blessed. David Bercot is a good teacher and his knowledge of the beliefs and practices of the early churches and leaders is truly enlightening. Thank you so much.
A paradigm shift
A paradigm shift in how I think and process worldly information that I had never considered before. It was refreshing to learn that the things of this world we Christians have embraced are a mistake that can be proven biblicaly.
Lots of interesting and compelling evidences.
A church is only as strong as its doctrine. Those who aspire to be teachers, whether for a church office, leadership position on a missionary team, small group, or family devotions, accept a weighty responsibility. Like any important skill, the ability to teach effectively and accurately must be developed. This course draws upon the Septuagint and early Christian sources to offer practical advice for Bible fanatics who want to communicate the truths of God's word (and especially Old Testament connections to Christ). In the last three modules of the course, Chuck Pike will demonstrate how he would teach through three challenging Bible passages.
The series focuses on prophecies about the resurrection of Jesus. My hope is that this series of lessons will strengthen the faith of Christians and open their eyes to the importance of the Old Testament. I also hope that these lessons will be useful in helping unbelievers come to faith in Jesus Christ, based on the evidence of the fulfilled prophecies that were written hundreds of years before the birth of Jesus in Bethlehem.
If you have more confusion than clarity concerning the Holy Spirit, you're not alone. Some groups have treated the Spirit as a license for casting off scriptural authority. Others have reacted by minimizing His role. The result is that teaching about the third person of the Trinity often leaves much to be desired. But Jesus did not intend for His followers to linger in confusion; rather, he wanted them to realize the Spirit's power in their lives. We hope that this course will begin to clarify the Holy Spirit for you: what Jesus taught the disciples about it, how the early Christians thought about it, and how the Holy Spirit is alive today.
Join Dean Taylor for this three-part series as he looks at the landscape of Christian involvement in politics. Dean takes a historical approach to see what happens every time Christians get involved in the political arena. By diagnosing pervasive Constantinism found throughout history he will challenge you to rethink how the Church should engage the culture today.
Despite the explosion of Christianity throughout the world during the first few centuries after Christ, few Christians today present and defend the story of Jesus using the tactics of the earliest evangelists. In this 5-part series, Chuck Pike demonstrates the time-tested relevance of scriptural proofs for the gospel.
