Welcome class!

Here’s your course material for session #6

2. We’re going to continue 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.

3. Lastly, we’re going to begin tactic #5.

You can listen, watch or read this section.

Tactic #5 deals with: a) “What is the Trinity?” podcast link (p. 218-226, 231-234 in the book). b) Trinity in the Resurrection for JW’s podcast link. (p. 235 in the book). Almost every one of the groups we have been discussing has an issue with the teaching on the Trinity, and almost all of them use it as a means of proving that the Christian view of God is ridiculous. While we have discussed why I don’t believe this issue should be seen as determining one’s salvation, it is a historic and biblical doctrine, and we must be able to defend it. Even more than that. Can we use the Trinity as a means of helping the individual we are talking to understand true biblical teaching and begin to question the teaching of their organization?
