PowerPoint for Westminster Chapter VIII

Here’s the PowerPoint that we used in class today as we covered the Westminster Confession of Faith, chapter 8. This chapter deals with the mediation of the Lord Jesus Christ and has far reaching implications in the life of the Christian. Specifically, the mediation that the Lord provides for us before the Father and his…

SUNDAY SCHOOL: FOREORDINATION

Today we continued our study of the Westminster Confession of Faith chapter 3, where we continued to speak to the issue of God’s foreordination of all that comes to pass. This issue seems to create a great deal of tension in the Christian community, which is a shame because in the Scriptures, the doctrine of…

The Uniformity of Nature and Materialism

The Uniformity of Nature      Another major issue that develops when evaluating materialistic worldview falls into the area of how the adherent to this view justifies the Inductive Principle. First, how can the materialist utilize particular experience to formulate generalized conclusions about nature and reality? Second, how can the unbeliever, who believes that at its…

Philippians 2:6-11 PowerPoint

Philippians chapter 2 is one of the bedrocks of orthodox Christology, providing for the reader an amazing summation of the eternal existence, essence/nature and work of the divine Son from eternity past into the present.

Enjoy and here’s the study along with…

(Please note: this is an extremely large file. I forgot my Tablet Sunday and was forced to record the study on my computer, which created a…

Sermon (09/08/13) “Christ Our Wisdom”

This past Sunday I preached on 1 Cor 1:10-31. The theme of the sermon was on Christian unity and perhaps the most important this said in the sermon is something that we all should hear often, Christ is not a proposition. Instead, He is a person, the Son of God and God, the Second member…

SUNDAY SCHOOL (04/14/13): The Attributes of God Part 2

Sunday School today was wonderful. We began our study with a review of last weeks class of Gods attributes. We then quickly went on a rabbit trail and spoke a bit about the Watch Tower Bible and Tract Society (the Jehovah’s Witnesses; which was a fine rabbit trail to me), and then we completed our…
