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.

How Should We Then Vote? (2020)

How Should We Then Vote? (2020)

May 2020 - October 2020

There is so much division and hostility today in America. When it comes to voting, there is even more. This is not how it should be. We should and must come to an understanding of what the foundational issues are and learn to have discussions about those issues without throwing bricks or grenades.

In this new series we will look at what the Bible teaches about nations, governing, and governance. Along the way we will also explore what the Founding Fathers of this nation believed and why that is still vital and significant today.

As always, our focus will be on God's Word. God is not an American, an Israeli, Chinese, Russian, or any other ethnic group. He is neither Republican nor Democrat, but He has revealed key principles in His Word for how a nation can be righteous and just, successful and blessed, as well as how a nation can self-destruct.
