“April Fool’s” – (Fools and those who follow them) Selected Scriptures

NT0667 Is There Unrighteousness with God? (The Doctrine of Election Rectified) Romans 9:14-24

Romans 9:14-24 speaks to the questions Paul's readers had and still have regarding the fairness questions we all struggle with. Is God fair? Does He have to be, especially speaking to our idea of what is fair and what is not? Paul answers seven questions in this section of Scripture that should lay to rest once and for all the issues the creation might have with their Creator. What shall we say then? At the end of the day we need to let our objections and questions rest in the goodness and impeccable, flawless character of God Himself in the Father, Son and Holy Spirit.

Lesson Four Bibliology – A Question of Integrity

“What Difference Does It Make? The Doctrine of Election Clarified

We’ve all been quoted as having said these words: “What Difference Does it Make?” This is the title for this week’s message in the book of Romans 9:6-13. We embark upon a dangerous and treacherous journey of seeking to understand and comprehend the mind and heart of God when it comes to the subject of salvation. Where heretical teachings have risen is often around the subject of God’s will in choosing some to salvation, we call this the doctrine of Election. Pastor Pete and Family Bible Church’s prayer is that we rightly divide the Word of Truth and do no harm when seeking to preach the whole counsel of God. Just because we can’t seem to wrap our finite minds around these cardinal, doctrinal truths doesn’t mean they are somehow untrue and unnecessary for the right and proper exposition of the Scriptures. We will seek to answer four questions: 1.) What’s the difference? Verse Six, Who Qualifies? 2.) What’s the Use? Verse Seven, What’s Required? 3.) What’s the Matter? Verse Eight, Who’s Chosen? and 4.) What’s the Deal? Verses Nine through Thirteen, Who Chooses? Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!

Lesson Three: Bibliology 2018 – Canon and Integrity

Bibliology, Lesson Two: Inerrancy – Are the Scriptures Reliable?

Lesson Two: Inspiration and Inerrancy - Are the Holy Scriptures Reliable? Pastor Pete leads this class looking at some errant views of inspiration, how the inspiration of the Biblical text take place, arguments for inerrancy, other historical texts in comparison to the Biblical text, the basis for inclusion as Scripture and why the Apocryphal books are rejected in the Protestant Bible. 

Bibliology, Lesson One: Inspiration and Revelation

In this class we discuss how we came to have our Bibles.  Holy men of God were inspired by God's special Revelation of His every word and the very Words of God.

“The Spirit of Intimacy”

What or Who do you love the most? The Scriptures are very clear on this subject. Matthew 22:37-40 tells us we are to love God first and foremost above ourselves or anything else. To ignore this precept is to essentially break all of the ten commandments. Loving God helps us to love others; serving God helps us to serve others. The centrality of our intimacy with God has everything to do with the core and passion of our hearts and lives. In Romans 8:28-39 we see the “SPIRIT OF INTIMACY” – (The Believer Has a New LOVE). This famous passage tells us two essential truths from the heart of God Himself through the pen of the Apostle Paul: 1.) No Accusation Will Ever Stand Against True Believers, (8:31-34) and 2.) No Separation Will Ever Exist Between the Savior and True Believers. (8:35-39) As Pastor Pete concludes this amazing Spirit filled passage in Romans 8: Bring it Home, Take it Home as you Listen for LIFE!

The Psalm of the Cross of Christ

One of the greatest apologetics for the defense of the reliability of the Scriptures is the subject of prophecy. How could have the psalmist written such a precise description of the suffering Savior hundreds of years before the event? There is only one explanation: the prophetic word of God. We can take great comfort in the realization that God’s Word is true from cover to cover and reliable for faith, life and practice. This Psalm, Psalm 22:1-31 speaks to the suffering Servant and specifically His work on the cross of Calvary. What could possibly be more comforting than knowing God knows our needs before we do and has already provided an answer and the strength needed to go through whatever faces us around the corner. We may not see what lies ahead but God does. He’s already been there and His love, support, strength and provision is ready to be poured out in abundance to all who know Him.
