Welcome class!

Here’s your course material for session #5

  1. Today we’re going to continue tactic #1 and working our way through the gospels and how the life, ministry and teachings of Jesus relate to the groups we are discussing.

You can continue the listen/watch route or continue the book route as they are arranged differently.

2. We’re also going to continue on tactic #3 today. This time we’re going to deal with how to communicate grace to somebody from a religious mindset when it comes to rewards, inheritance, crowns and ruling and reigning with Christ. How do we differentiate between these biblical teachings and the concept of multiple levels of heaven and progressing to godhood?

You can listen, watch or read this section.

Specifically, we’re going to look at: a) Stunted Grace podcast link (p. 191-197) b) That Nobody Can Boast podcast link (p. 198-199)

3. Lastly, we’re going to begin covering tactic #4 which deals with the question “Why Should I Trust the Bible?” Most of these groups make a claim that the Bible cannot be trusted either because it has been corrupted in the past, or because God has given modern day revelation that has changed true doctrine, making the Bible obsolete.

You can listen, watch or read this section. However, I would recommend watching the section on Mr. and Mrs. Flat because the concepts will be easier to grasp that way.
