Reliable: Why the Original Text is Attainable by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will continue examining the original text of the Bible. Not only is the original text important, but it is also available to us through study and an understanding of textual criticism. Many people would have us believe that the original text is lost because we do not have the original documents. However, we will learn this weekend how to recover the original text and its impact on our understanding of the Bible. The title of this weekend’s message is “RELIABLE PART 2.”

Reliable: Why the Original Text is Important by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, as we approach the conference, we will begin a short series examining the Bible itself. There are those that say the original text of Scripture is lost to us. Through translation over the years, we have moved away from the original Greek text. Not only is this false, but it is a harmful understanding of God’s Word. The title of this weekend’s message is “RELIABLE: PART 1.”

Progression by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will continue talking about what we need in order to grow in our faith. Studying the Bible together is crucial for spiritual growth and fellowship. Our Wednesday night Bible studies are a great way to get plugged in at Clearview and to grow closer to God and others. The title of this weekend’s message is “PROGRESSION.”

Leviathan by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we are taking a look at a topic not often brought up in churches. We will be learning about dinosaurs. Where do they fit into the biblical account? How far off is the timeline that secular scientists offer? What impact do fossils have on our understanding of the book of Genesis? The title of this weekend’s message is “LEVIATHAN.”

Traces by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will be examining the after effects of the flood. We can see evidence of the worldwide flood in the world around us, if we use the lens of Scripture. Even the rock layers of different geological formations. The title of this weekend’s message is “TRACES.”

Legends by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, as we continue to learn about Noah and the flood, we will compare the biblical account to ancient myths and mythologies from cultures around the world. The presence of other flood narratives might seem strange, but when we look closer we will find proof of the authority of God’s Word in these “LEGENDS”.

Secure by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will continue our study of the account of Noah. While the storms and floodwaters raged outside, Noah and his family were safe within the ark. This not only shows God’s provision for Noah, but reminds us how He protects all of His people. The title of this weekend’s message is “SECURE.”

Reckoning by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we are focusing on God’s character specifically in the events leading up to the Flood. People have sometimes pointed out the apparent differences in God’s character from the Old Testament to the New Testament. Why does God appear wrathful in some places and merciful in others? In this message, we will learn that there is no inconsistency in God’s character or His judgment. The title of this weekend’s message is “RECKONING.”

Domain by Abidan Shah, PhD

If you have been following this series, you know that we have been in the book of Genesis for quite some time. There is simply so much to answer from the text and so many questions people have related to God, creation, and the first chapter of human history. This weekend, we will examine an age-old incident from the history of the world and determine what this passage means for us and our understanding of Scripture. This weekend’s message is titled “DOMAIN.”

Great Nation by Abidan Shah, PhD

In fact, recent events should show us that God is still very much guiding and guarding America. It is time for believers to set the example of returning to the truth of God’s Word. This is the bedrock upon which our country was founded and it is the guiding light that will lead us into the future. This weekend, we will be reminded that we do in fact live in a great nation.

Company by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we are examining a very curious account in Scripture: Enoch. The Bible doesn’t give very many details about his life other than that he walked with God and then was no more. However, there is much we can learn from Enoch’s brief account and apply to our own lives! The title of this weekend’s message is “COMPANY.”

Wanderer by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will continue our study of Cain, looking at the events of his life after he murdered Abel. There are many questions and speculations about the nature of Cain’s punishment and how he spent the rest of his days. In this message, we will uncover the truth not only about Cain’s life but also about God, both His justice and mercy. This weekend’s message is titled “WANDERER.”

Rivalry by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we will be looking at the account of Cain and Abel. This tragic first pair of siblings has raised many questions in people’s minds over the years. There are details from the account that are flagged as examples of the Bible containing errors. Through this message, we will not only learn more about Cain and Abel, but will be able to defend the authenticity of the Bible. This weekend’s message is titled “RIVALRY.”

Contend: Season Two by Abidan Shah, PhD

This weekend, we are revisiting the issue of the evidence we have for our faith and the truth of the Bible. We don’t have to operate on blind faith or be worried about scientific discoveries disproving the Bible. We can trust that God’s Word is true and that we have evidence to back it up.

All-Sufficient by Dr. Abidan Shah

ALL-SUFFICIENT by Dr. Shah, Clearview Church, Henderson, NC Introduction: Sometime back in our series titled “Contend,” we played a portion of the sound recording of the crew of Apollo 8 reading from Genesis 1 on Christmas Eve, 1968. The following year, July 20th, 1969, when Apollo 11 landed on the moon and Neil Armstrong stepped... Continue Reading →

First Gospel: The Cure by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are taking a look at the events that have unfolded after the Fall. We know that God promised a Savior in Genesis and that He would crush the head of the Enemy. How did Christ’s birth fulfill all of this? How did the cross destroy the work of the Enemy? This weekend’s message is titled “THE CURE.”

First Gospel: The Damage

This weekend, we are moving forward in our study of Genesis and what went wrong. The consequences of Adam and Eve’s disobedience have been felt for thousands of years. It is into this damaged world that God sent Jesus to fix what had been broken. The title of this weekend’s message is “FIRST GOSPEL: THE DAMAGE.”

Operation Restore by Dr. Abidan Shah

This weekend, we are beginning a very special two-part miniseries on marriage. We see in Genesis that God created marriage to be a beautiful union between a husband and wife, but very quickly things begin to fall apart. In this series, we will examine what went wrong and how we can work to get back to God’s original design for marriage. The title of this weekend’s message is “OPERATION RESTORE PART ONE.”
