Systematic Theology by Wayne Grudem

 

We will be using the widely available Systematic Theology book to guide our study. This is a very good starting point book for us to use for the year and has launched many first-time 'theologians.' There are a variety of places to obtain the book, please purchase the book prior to the first class.  We will discuss Chapter One.

Great Resource for Attributes of God

 

As we restarted our study on 9/7, we decided to discuss the 'high points' of our doctrines.  This mean that we will not take enough time to do a deep dive into many of them, except for the discuss on the "End Times," as decided by the group.  

 

If you want to study more on the topic of the Attributes of God, here is an excellent resource produced by Precept Austin.

We continue to expand and deepen our understanding of the key doctrines of Scripture by defining authority and clarity.

 

January 20, 2016

 

In this class we discussed the definitions of "The Word of God" and Inerrancy.  The belief in the inerrancy of the Bible is fundemental to all beliefs.  From the foundation of our understanding that the Bible is without error be can properly build our further understanding of Scripture.

In this class we will layout the objectives for the year.  We will examaine the pressure from outside the church on basis of the knowledge of our faith - the Bible.  We will also examine the pressure from within the church to release our long-standing stance on what the Bible really is.  Watch the video to the right, click the links below to download the class materials.
