Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Others Lesson 2 – 10/31/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Forgiving others is not easy.  But it is possible.  If it were not possible, God would not have commanded it of us.  More than that, if it were not possible, He would not have told us that we cannot be forgiven unless we are forgiving.  In this lesson, from Chapter 3 of Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free by Dan Winkler, we take a look at two suggestions that can help us in forgiving others.

Who is Jesus? Son of God, or Good Moral Teacher? – Romans 1:1-4 – 10/28/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
“I am ready to accept that Jesus of Nazareth was a good moral teacher, but I cannot believe that he was the son of God.” How many times have Christians heard such a statement?  So, just who is Jesus?  It’s an important question.  As we study, we find out what the Bible teaches about this very question, and even find that there is a fundamental problem with the idea Jesus being either a good moral teacher or the Son of God.

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Others Lesson 1 – 10/24/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
In this lesson, beginning the third chapter of Bro. Dan Winkler’s book Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free, we make one observation.  Forgiving others is not easy.  It is not natural for us, and it is quite often something we just don’t want to do.  But it is something we must do.  The Bible clearly teaches that if we do not forgive, we will not be forgiven.

Did Jesus Rise From The Dead? – 1 Corinthians 15:1-4 – 10/21/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Why even bother asking as question like this?  Don’t we know that Jesus rose from the dead?  Our faith is based on Christ rising from the dead, and yet, there are some who do not believe that Christ really was resurrected, but simply that the disciples believed it to be so.  In this lesson, we examine some evidence that should shows us that Christ did in fact rise from the dead.

Edification – 10/21/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
One of the main focuses of the church should be the edification, or building up, of its members.  This is done through being of one fellowship, united on the foundation of the word of God.  It’s not just about having fun together, but of sharing in the “joint-participation” of being united in Christ

Forgiven, Forgiving, and Free: Forgiving Myself Part 3 – 10/17/18 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
Understanding that we are forgiven is easy enough, but feeling as though we are forgiven is another matter.  It is important that we learn to see ourselves and our past sins in the same way that God does, so that we can fully enjoy the knowledge of our forgiveness.

Did the New Testament Writers Tell the Truth? – 2 Peter 1:16-18 – 10/14/18 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
Though it is evident that the New Testament documents are early and written by eyewitnesses, there is still skepticism among many about whether or not the New Testament writers actually reported events as they happened.  Some believe that the stories of miracles and of Christ’s resurrection are embellishments, invented as part of a Christian mythology by the early believers.  As we study together in this lesson, we will begin to see a number of reasons why that is not a reasonable belief, but that it is most logical to believe that the New Testament writers were telling the truth.
