Passage: Ephesians 4:25
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 53 mins 52 secs

Are you aware you’re living in a war zone? A war zone of competing worldviews? Listen to this message to learn about two prominent worldviews that may be influencing you more than you know. The first of these is called Modernism, which stresses that reason and logic are all that were necessary to live a good life. This view was discredited by the devastation of the first World War. The worldview that followed it and is current today is called Postmodernism. Learn how its goal is to bring utopia to this world through social change. In contrast to these false worldviews is the biblical view that man is helpless to save himself, but God’s plan for mankind is to redeem him through Christ’s death on the Cross when we trust in Him. Finish this lesson with a study of who the “one another” in Ephesians refers to and the importance of the body of Christ called the Church.

During this message Dr. Dean referenced the book The Death of Truth by David McCallum.

Passage: Ephesians 4:17-21
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 45 mins 23 secs
After salvation, then what? Listen to this lesson to hear a blueprint for two paths you can take. One is to continue as you did as an unbeliever, living by the dictates of the sin nature. It leads to spiritual death in this life and at the Judgment Seat of Christ you receive no rewards. The best choice is to choose to live by means of the Holy Spirit. This involves reading the Word of God, studying, internalizing, memorizing, and applying it to decisions you make. It includes confession of sin on a regular basis and results in spiritual maturity and rewards. Each day you have this decision to make so choose wisely.

Passage: Ephesians 4:17-21
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 1 hr 58 mins 9 secs
Are you a part of Team Adam or Team Church? Listen to this lesson to learn that when anyone trusts Christ as their Savior they switch from being in Adam to being in the Church, which is the body of Christ. Hear what we were like when we were born and see that the corruption was getting worse. Then when we trusted in Christ, we were born again and are now part of the Church. Everything is new. In order to grow to spiritual maturity we need to have our thinking renewed and that can only happen as we walk by means of the Holy Spirit and learn what the Scriptures reveal about our new life.

Duration: 53 mins 31 secs
What are the phrases “old man” and “new man” referring to? And how are they put off and put on? Listen to this lesson to learn that these are not commands but rather, they occur instantly at the moment anyone trusts in the Lord Jesus Christ as their Savior. See that they refer to leaving our position in Adam and joining with others in the Church, or body of Christ. Rejoice that all believers are in Christ and as such, have the power to obey the many commands given to us that refer to our new spiritual life.
