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.

David Roseland

Role: Conference/Guest speaker

Before coming to Preston City Bible Church, David Roseland grew up in East Texas, a life-long student of categorical, exegetical Bible teaching. He graduated from the U.S. Military Academy at West Point in 1999 with a BS in electrical engineering and was commissioned as an Armor Officer.
 
He served for five years in the Army's 4th Infantry Division, enjoying an unusually long tenure as a platoon leader, first with tanks and then an Infantry Mortar platoon. In April 2003 David and his mortars deployed with the 4th ID to Ba'Qubah, Iraq where he as a captain finally said goodbye to his platoon. He became a personnel officer and soon found himself paying Iraqi defense personnel their salaries, as well as dealing with local fuel apportioning among the villages and cities of the Diyala Province. David taught the Warhorse Bible Study in Ba'Qubah.
 
Upon returning to the U.S. in April 2004 David began to transition to civilian life as a seminary student. He graduated from Dallas Theological Seminary in May 2007 with a Masters in Theology in Bible Exposition.
 
David and his wife Krista were married at West Point, NY in 2001 and now live in Eastern Connecticut.

The father of modern dispensationalism came on the scene of history at a salutary moment, and he read his Bible with rare devotional abandon just prior to and throughout a lifetime of writing. His vast and challenging written record presents volumes of meticulous theological correspondence, popular tract- and pamphlet-writing, and a body of argumentative discourse that would leave little doubt as to his opinion on theological matters from Greek grammatical structures in the New Testament to the application of biblical principles in 19th Century British political life. From this record one can distill a rigorous and thoroughly detailed system of theology, though the desirable task of cataloging and prioritizing said systematic theology was sadly one accomplishment Darby never undertook. Darby would probably remark that the Bible has its own system, and therefore the closest thing we have to his systematic theology is his Synopsis of the Books of the Bible. This magnum opus, originally published in French, took him the better part of twenty years to complete, and in five volumes it presents a system that must be derived inductively. Darby’s priority of the Bible—illuminated to the believer by the Holy Spirit—over human reasoning was his constant appeal.

A philosophy of pastoral ministry is indispensable to the task of shepherding God’s flock. A pastor’s approach to his sacred task may arise from his own experience, the examples that have preceded him in his theological or ecclesiastical tradition, pressure from the congregation, or any number of perspectives which purport to have the most expedient answers to challenging questions of our time. Today it is not uncommon to hear from the world of commercial trade about how to succeed in leadership for the church. As many different instances of ministry philosophy exist as pastors and leaders in the various local churches that comprise the Body of Christ. In the larger category of ecclesiology, this topic is one of the most varied regarding opinions and perspectives. This paper will argue that the biblical philosophy of pastoral ministry begins with the imitation of Jesus and His apostles. It will be shown that this concept of leadership imitation extends from the general features common to all believers in the growth process of experiential sanctification to the specific tasks that belong to pastors and teachers in the local church.

To the historically-informed theologian steeped in the traditions of his forbears, novelty in theological discourse is generally unwelcome. Systematic ideologies develop in the studies and writings of pastor-scholars, but they tend to assume a fortress-like resilience in the theoretical realm of academe. Proponents of such a system can at times find their schoolhouse to be a fortress under perpetual siege. Any refinements or changes, often proposed as improvements on the traditional system, are met quickly and summarily as though they were the attacks of the Vandal hordes on the bastions of orthodoxy. As the ministry of the Apostle Paul demonstrates, we are indeed responsible to defend the Faith against destructive, false teaching if we would equip others to "hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering. …"
