Overall Rating of All Courses
Lots of interesting and compelling evidences.
Excellent refutation of Calvinism
It was very benefiting to listen to the good explanations of why the common calvinistic “prooftexts” does not support their case. It was a very interesting course and I will continue to study the subject, since I have started to write a book in Swedish against Calvinism.
Loved his style of teaching
I found all of his analogies to be very helpful as the lessons progressed.
Please continue this ministry
Loving God's Orchestra
I really enjoyed the course, it really truly helped to deepen my love and appreciation for how He (God) in His understanding and wisdom has designed things to be… And yes I heartily agree with brother Finny, I believe God has a special place in His eternal kingdom for all our fear Sisters who are willing to obey and take their part in taking their place in His beautiful orchestra of order…
The Old Testament, a Treasure Trove.
I have always enjoyed Chuck’s teachings from the Old Testament, I have come to realize that the Whole Bible has been given for us to mine for its hidden treasures…
Being Filled With The Holy Spirit
Refreshing study on the most important subject of the Holy Spirit, our Comforter-Teacher, the power to live the overcoming life. The Spirit of Adoption – the mark or seal of our adoption as true sons of God without which we do not have this precious relationship with the Heavenly Father and would have no right to call Him Abba, Father. Prayer, call God ‘Heavenly Father’ would not have it’s true meaning and reality.
Love the study of the 7-fold Spirit.
Excellent course for really understanding Calvinism
Finny Kuruvilla does an excellent job of laying out what the Calvinists believe by using their own words to explain their beliefs. He then examines their proof-texts using textual honesty and paying attention to the context. His explanations of the same texts are very consistent with the rest of Scripture, logically make great sense, and most importantly, are honest to a literal understanding of ALL the details. This course helped me to understand how Calvinists think and what they believe. I was also challenged to read honestly, let the text speak, and approach Scripture with the desire to understand what the passage really means, not to merely find support for my own conclusions.
This just shows me how little of the church and education systems can be trusted to not have an agenda. I am so grateful to have stumbled onto this ministry.
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.
