Overall Rating of All Courses
I actually decided to listen to this course because I thought it would be a boring session of bashing Calvinists and twisting Scripture. I was very pleasantly disappointed. This stuff makes sense, and it matters.
Great content. Fully agree. And I first learned about the head covering 3 years ago.
This is wisdom that we Anabaptists all need to learn from.
Great to know!!!
All Christians should learn this history!
This, as a good introduction course should, satiated my taste for more content involving the early Church. Very good and thought provoking arguments by David. To God be the glory forever and ever, let us learn to serve faithfully in a way well pleasing to Christ our savior. Amen.
First time I've heard a message like this
I really didn’t think I would find a course about O.T. prophecy interesting, but was I ever wrong! I learned so much from this course and my attention was kept the whole time.
God foreknew I would say this
I used to hold to Calvinistic views, and I listened to Caedmon’s Call back in the day, BUT when I finally learned that early Christians didn’t teach Calvinism, that sort of put a damper on things. 😭 Also, learning the Gnostics held to this view was disturbing… and that Augustine was the one who made it popular didn’t help much either, since he departed from Christ’s commands (and the apostles’) on non-resistance and more. I still don’t have it all figured out, but when in doubt, stop believing modern day doctrines, and go with the early Christian understanding.
Enjoyed it. Learned lots. Thanks!

A walk through history
Thank you for the walk through history. Enjoyed learning about the different kingdom Christians. God will bless them for their steadfastness and all they suffered.
Very helpful and covers the key areas
Not a complete evaluation of the relevant churches, but it covers the areas on which they base their claims of being the true church. Highly recommend.
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.
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.
