This weekend, we are turning our attention to the Tower of Babel. This is a very blatant example of disobedience to God’s command to fill the earth. Many of us are familiar with the story and with the consequences of the people’s actions. However, there is a much deeper theological truth to be learned from this account. The title of this weekend’s message is “TYRANNY: PART 1.”
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.”
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.”
Genesis by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are turning our attention to the beginning of creation. People can offer many different theories and ideas, but how does science’s account of the beginning of creation line up with what God says in His Word? The book of Genesis offers us a very detailed account of how God made the world around us. In understanding more about creation, we understand more about our Creator and His plan for us. The title of this weekend’s message is “GENESIS”.
Canon by Dr. Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are examining the canon of Scripture and looking at how the Bible compares to the writings of Buddhism. Buddhists ascribe to many different canons, but there is one biblical canon that believers uphold. Why does this matter? How did the canon come to be accepted? The title of this weekend’s message is “CANON”.
Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit Of Happiness by Pastor Abidan Shah
This weekend, we are examining the life of Daniel and his obedience to God over his allegiance to all others. This is such a crucial reminder for us that as believers, the world will always be against us. The stakes are too high for us to remain apathetic and do nothing. You and I have to stand by our convictions and be active in our community and our nation. The title of this weekend’s message is “LIFE, LIBERTY, AND THE PURSUIT OF HAPPINESS.”
Help! I’m Losing My Faith in the Bible.
Lately I’ve heard (more times than I would like to count) about another young man or woman who has turned away from Christianity to atheism or agnosticism. What would cause someone who grew up in church, went to Sunday School, Vacation Bible School,and Youth group to give it all up?
What would cause someone to turn their backs on the faith of their parents and grandparents? What would cause someone to discount that moment when they prayed to receive Christ?
Although the reasons are many, this Sunday we will focus on why some people turn their backs on the Bible. We will look at the incident when Jesus cleansed the temple in Jerusalem. While John mentions it at the start of Jesus’ ministry, Matthew, Mark, and Luke mention it towards the close of His ministry. This has caused some people to claim that the gospel writers made a clear mistake. Is this true?
