Galatians 5:16-23 teaches that at any moment we are either walking by the Holy Spirit or according to the sin nature. Walking by the Spirit, enjoying fellowship with God, walking in the light are virtually synonymous. During these times, the Holy Spirit is working in us to illuminate our minds to the truth of Scripture and to challenge us to apply what we learn. But when we sin, we begin to live based on the sin nature. Our works do not count for eternity. The only way to recover is to confess (admit, acknowledge) our sin to God the Father and we are instantly forgiven, cleansed, and recover our spiritual walk (1 John 1:9). Please make sure you are walking by the Spirit before you begin your Bible study, so it will be spiritually profitable.

2017 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference

2017 Chafer Theological Seminary Bible Conference

March 2017

Recent analysis has shown that the vast majority of “conservative” evangelical scholars claim to hold to inerrancy, but in the opinion of one of them, if they were held to the standard of the Chicago Statement on Biblical Inerrancy, perhaps 95% of them would fall short.

Understanding these issues and the facts that support the inerrancy of the Scripture are crucial for any Christian. How one understands the extent of the authority and veracity of the text impacts everything from ­interpretation to application.

At the 2017 Chafer Theological Seminary Pastors’ Conference (March 13–15, 2017) our two keynote speakers each had four-part series that addressed these issues.

Hear the discussions on these issues from our keynote speakers Dr. F. David Farnell, who addressed “Critical Issues in Inerrancy,” and Dr. H. Wayne House who enlightened us on “Problems and Challenges on Interpretation”.

Other speakers and topics included:

Bennett Greenspan: “Are Modern Jews Descended from the Biblical Israelites?”

Mark Musser: “Theological Romanticism, Higher Criticism & Post-Modern Fascism: A German Odyssey”

David Roseland: “Scottish Common Sense Philosophy and Inerrancy”

Andy Woods: “Apocalyptic Genre and Inerrancy”.

One session featured a report and update on Chafer Seminary.

While it is true skepticism toward the Bible as an authentic revelation from God began in England with the meteoric rise of the scientific revolution during the 1600s and 1700s which gave birth to the Enlightenment and the secular religion of Deism that tried to outlaw God’s miraculous intervention into providence and history, it was the German response and reaction to the Age of Reason that led to an all-out assault against the historicity of the Scriptures. English Deism only went so far, but Germany took it to heart, and then even worse, assuming its scientific conclusions were relatively true concerning the biblical record, tried to fix it—but not by returning to the Protestant Reformation. Instead, German scholars of the 1700s and 1800s came up their own semi-secularized natural theology that rivalled and later replaced Deism with what is known today as Theological Liberalism ...
