This study begins our exploration contrasting God's love with our natural human love and how understanding the difference helps us to better understand God's communication to us.
The first half of this study continues the discussion of understanding God“s plan to understand the Bible and discusses the need for an eternally sustainable life style.
The second half answers a number of questions including:
Our entire study tonight answered submitted questions including:
Thus there is no handout.
Most questions were asked from a Catholic perspective but we have attempted to shape the answers to be relevant to all.
This study was devoted to questions:
We will continue the study on Gay Marriage and Human Sexuality next week.
This study continues exploring the plan of salvation to understand the Bible with a focus on exploring the danger of exchanging goodness for holiness.
This study continues examining the role of the Holy Spirit in Christian transformation and how understanding it prevents us from building a Christianity without Christ. We explore how we are transformed from insanity to sanity and conclude with a discussion of God's rest and the Sabbath.
In this study we explore how we follow the lead of the Holy Spirit and how we distinguish between God's voice within us and our own voice.
This study begins a series examining relationships with God that have some form of distortion and seeing how God moves them to a foundation of love. In this study, we begin the life of Elijah.
This study completes our examination of the life of Elijah and his growth from a relationship with God based upon Responsibility and Knowledge to one based upon Love.
In this study, we examine the account of Cornelius the Centurion to see how our human goodness is not a proper foundation for our relationship with God.
We continue our study of the Book of Job to see Job's continued bewilderment at God and the friends' highly defensive and violent reaction when Job challenges their view of God and religion with reality.
We continue our study of the Book of Job and shift our focus from the shortcomings of the friends to the shortcomings of Job and identify the dysfunction in Job's relationship with God. We then start the speech of Elihu and explore how his approach is different from both Job and the friends.
Our study on Job continues with an exploration of the words of Elihu and his taking Job to task for questioning God's justice. God afflicts Job because He loves Job and God blesses Job because He loves him. Every dimension of God's relationship with us is clothed in His love for us.
