Got any “dumb” assignments you’re working on? Part of being a healthy Christian, it seems to me, is having topics you want to explore in God’s Word.
I’ve been working my way through the book of Psalms. I also have several workshops to prepare for Emmaus Bible College’s “Iron Sharpens Iron” conference May 21-24, 2015. Here are my topics with brief explanations:
Topic #1- “Hearsay or Heresy? How Do You Tell the Difference?” Christian leaders are commanded to silence false teachers (Titus 1:11). How do we know that we are not simply assassinating the character of fellow believers with whom we disagree on distinctive areas of doctrine?
Topic #2- “The Top Two Areas of Theological Attack: Sharon Baker on Christ’s Atoning Work and Eternal Hell.” A review and discussion of Executing God and Razing Hell.
Topic #3- “Ten Steps the Local Church Should Take to Handle Heretics.” Paul warned the Ephesian elders that out of their own number savage wolves would arise, not sparing the flock (Acts 20). Here’s how proactive leadership can practically pursue truth with and for God’s people.
