Gen 4:1-6:8: The Spread of Sin and the Grace of God Print E-mail

We learn from the book of Genesis that sin spreads rapidly.  In fact, after the judgment following the Fall and Adam and Eve being removed from the garden of Eden, sin immediately begins to impact the first family.  We talked last week about the devastation of the Fall and how all of humanity was plunged into sin because of Adam and Eve’s decision, in our passage this week we see the reality of such teaching.  It does not take us long to realize that sin is wreaking havoc in humanity and that rebellion against God is running rampant.

Gen 3: Lessons from the Fall Print E-mail

The greatest need of man goes largely unmentioned.  We talk about hunger and we talk about shelter.  We talk about peace between nations and neighbors.  We talk about love and acceptance.  We talk about better education, better societies, better cultures, better environments.  We talk about all of this and more without really ever mentioning the greatest need of man.  We so often fail to realize that these are just symptoms, great as they are, of a much greater problem.

Gen 1-2 (Part 2): What Does Creation Teach Us About Man? Print E-mail

Have you ever asked the question: who am I? or what is my identity, what makes me, me?  These are questions that for the most part we all ask at some time or another.  When we are growing up and in school we often ask it to try and figure out what group we belong to or what friends we should have.  When going to college and deciding on a career, we often reflect on who we are and what we want to be when we grow up.  When considering marriage, we often try to answer the question of our identity in order to answer the question of ‘our’ identity together.  I am learning that even as an adult we often make decisions based on how we answer the question of who we are.  Thus, ‘who am I’ is an important question for us and one we want to answer correctly.

Gen 1-2 (Part 1): What Does Creation Teach Us About God? Print E-mail

The Bible is a book about God’s revelation of Himself.  God has chosen to make Himself known to His creation.  He has chosen to reveal His purposes and His plans for the universe.  He has made known the truths about the world that are necessary for us to understand reality and existence.  He has revealed all this through the written word.  The Bible teaches us of God and His relation with man and all of creation.  It is a clear record and explanation of the History of Redemption.  It moves through the stages of creation to the Fall to our redemption in Christ to new creation throughout its pages.

Psalm 4: Relating to the Lord and to Others in Our Distress Print E-mail

In difficult times, focusing on ourselves often feeds despair.  We seclude ourselves away from everyone and try to deal with the problem on our own.  At other times, instead of simply hiding away, we decide that it will be helpful to lash out at all those who have come against us, whether it be in the present situation or not.  We seem to distract ourselves from the difficulties we are facing by pointing out everyone else’s problems...

Psalm 3: Entrusting Our Lives to the Lord Print E-mail

As we have been discussing on Sunday nights, the Protestant Reformation was a decisive time in the history of the Church.  We began looking last week and will continue tonight looking at the life and convictions of Martin Luther.  Although we cannot say that Luther was the only person involved in the Reformation, we can say that the Lord used him to be the spark that so many others drew their flames from.  One such person who fought with Luther for reform in the Church was Philip Melancthon.  Melancthon, as with Luther, was laboring for reform on many fronts and on most of them he received great resistance.  On June 27th, 1530, Luther wrote to encourage him.  Listen to one portion of his letter:
