It's time to derive your worldview from the Bible

Rather than reading the Bible through the eyes of modern secularism, this provocative six-part course teaches you to read the Bible through its own eyes—as a record of God’s dealing with the human race. When you read it at this level, you will discover reasons to worship God in areas of life you probably never before associated with “religion.”

Examining our presuppositions. The biblical map of reality compared to the pagan map. All of paganism follows the same basic trends and model. Sin should not be thought of in terms of social consequences. All sin is against God alone! What is your ultimate reality? What is man? Anchoring yourself in the major events of Scripture. What do you evaluate as the final value of our life? How do you view salvation? Questions and answers.

Why study systematic theology? You can’t separate the history of God’s revelation from biblical doctrine. Demonstrating that most of the New Testament is not new. The writers of the New Testament assumed their readers knew the Old Testament. God disrupts sin patterns in our lives because He cares for us. The Bible is coherent because God thinks coherently. God is big enough to be sovereign and still allow personal responsibility. If you have a view of your life or past that is not a consequence of your choices, you will never change your life for the better. Man’s fall.
