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.

Passage: Judges 9:1
Series: Judges (2021)
Duration: 1 hr 3 mins 12 secs
What does the Bible teach about government? Listen to this lesson to begin a study comparing the days of the Judges in Israel with what is happening in America today. Follow a history of how the laws governing countries developed in western civilization and the influence they had on our Founding Fathers. See that when the people of a country slide into paganism and abandon godly principles, their country begins to collapse. Hear a four-part definition of paganism.

Books mentioned by Dr. Dean during this class include:

Lex Rex by Samuel Rutherford.

A Match Made in Heaven: American Jews, Christian Zionists, and One Man's Exploration of the Weird and Wonderful Judeo-Evangelical Alliance by Zev Chafets.

Passage: Psalm 35:19-28
Series: Holiday Specials
Duration: 1 hr 22 mins 43 secs

Should we take pride in our country? Listen to this lesson to learn how the Founding Fathers had the wisdom to form a nation based on biblical principles which makes it exceptional. See how Psalm 35 was studied by these men to apply to their relationship with England. Find out that for several hundred years people had been struggling with the concept of whether it was right to resist tyranny of rulers. Hear facts all of us have learned about the Declaration of Independence that were false.

During this Bible class Dr. Dean mentioned several resources (in addition to those mentioned in Part 2) to enhance your understanding of American history and the conditions in America today including:

Online video: Biblical Justice vs. Social Justice by Voddie Baucham

Defending the Declaration: How the Bible and Christianity Influenced the Writing of the Declaration of Independence by Gary Amos

Passage: 1 Corinthians 13:18 & Titus 2:3-5
Series: Colossians (2011)
Duration: 55 mins 21 secs
Some of these passages have been misapplied inside and outside the church to justify sinful behavior. When authority is motivated by love there is no abuse or suppression. Authority without love is tyranny. The relationship of husbands and wives in obedience to these principles is related to their personal response to Jesus Christ, and lived out as a testimony to men and angels. Learn about the roles God has for men and women during the different seasons of life. See the “virtuous” woman in Proverbs and how, in her industriousness and obedience, she puts to shame the feminist concept of the modern woman, preserving her femininity and eliciting trust and praise from her family.

This lesson also includes Proverbs 31:10-31.
