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.”

How unbelief handles Jesus Christ (God’s greatest revelation to man). The ancient response to the King. Jesus said that the traditions of His time were obscuring the power of the original Word of God. Jesus Christ claimed to fulfill the whole sweep of Old Testament ideas in Himself and in His work. Jesus’ personal life made people uncomfortable. Jesus Christ was self-authenticating and did not appeal to a standard outside of Him. Questions and answers.

How unbelief handles Jesus Christ (continued). The modern response to the King. How the fallen intellect always distorts and suppresses revelation to avoid accountability to God. Implicit in our hearts, we know our Creator’s voice and don’t require a reason to believe. Unbelief rejects the existence of miracles because miracles violate the certainty of human knowledge, man being the supposed source of that certainty, not God. The agenda of unbelief is to make the world safe for sinners. The Word of God both hardens and softens hearts! The pagan worldview denies there can be any revelation from God. Questions and answers.

Every Christian should know the doctrine of kenosis. Jesus Christ is the model for living the Christian way of life, proving it works. Kenosis disproves that the Christian life was different for Jesus than it is for us. The progressive sanctification of Jesus Christ. The issue of sanctification precedes the issue of sin and suffering. Examples of kenosis as it relates to Christ’s sanctification. Jesus Christ did not cheat, during times of testing, by using His omniscience or omnipotence. Questions and answers.

Passage: Hebrews
Duration: 1 hr 21 mins 43 secs
The implications of kenosis. The cardinal virtue of Christianity is humility before God. Christ, in His kenosis, modeled what this humility ought to look like. Christ is eternally subjected to the Father in role, but not essence. This relationship in no way demeans Him. Questions and answers.

Review of the three major implications of kenosis. Jesus Christ is a pure Judge and an empathetic Priest. It is Jesus Christ Who commends people to hell for all eternity. Jesus is the standard for behavior. If our standards for behavior negatively judge His behavior, then our standards must be wrong! The doctrine of impeccability. Questions and answers.

Having a correct image of Who Christ was and how He acted. Jesus Christ was humble toward God, but, in His life, His will was anything but weak. Being “Christ like” does not conform to modern standards of a “healthy personality.” The implications of Christ’s impeccability. In eternity there will be an infinite number of lessons to learn about God. The doctrine of infallibility. Jesus’ historical and scientific claims. Questions and answers.

The infallibility of Christ. Can a perfect person make technical errors? The testing criteria for evaluating a prophet. The inerrancy of Scripture. Critics of the Scripture’s inerrancy relocate inerrancy to concepts, things, men, or institutions. Questions and answers.

Passage: Romans

Thinking scripturally or not. The battle for the mind of the believer. Heaven and hell is the biblical solution to evil. When God created the universe, there was no evil in it. All evil originated because of creature rebellion against the Creator. Unbelief is fragile and has inherent problems (Romans Chapter 1). Sin effects how we think. Questions and answers.

A quick review of the previous years teaching. The Bible’s two-level view of reality versus the pagan one-level view of reality. Jesus Christ poses this question to every human being: “Who do you say that I am?” The necessity for the virgin birth. The virgin birth offends unbelieving man. What unbelieving man has done with the life of Christ.
