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: Ephesians 2:1-3
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 51 mins 10 secs

Did you know everyone is born dead? If that doesn’t make any sense to you, listen to this lesson to learn the Bible teaches we are born spiritually dead, which means we are without a human spirit. How can we be made “alive in Christ”? See the role of the Holy Spirit in convicting us of unbelief. Find out we have to make the decision whether or not to believe in Christ and His work on the Cross. Understand what it means to walk by means of the Spirit and grow to spiritual maturity.

This lesson includes a brief speech by congressional candidate Wesley Hunt.

Passage: Ephesians 1:3-5
Series: Ephesians (2018)
Duration: 1 hr 1 mins 43 secs
Does God choose who will be saved or does He choose blessings for those He knows will accept Christ as their Savior? Listen to this lesson to hear what Scripture says about whether God’s foreknowledge preceded predestination. Find out the influence of Augustine on Calvin. Hear the differences between various views of Calvinism. See that within God’s sovereign plan He allows freedom for humans to choose whether or not they will believe in Christ’s saving work on the Cross.

Passage: 1 Peter 1:20
Series: 1 Peter (2015)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 30 secs
What does it mean when the Bible says that God knew “beforehand”? Listen to this lesson to learn that God knew beforehand those who would believe in Christ. Find out that Calvinism teaches that it means that God selected those who would believe but a word study shows the fallacy of that. Find out a number of scholars who have tried to prove that it means selection but they have no evidence. Learn the difference between foreknowledge and the will of God. See that God’s will and foreknowledge never overrides the free will of man.

Passage: Acts 13:13-39
Series: Acts (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 5 mins 26 secs
As we see Paul focus on the gospel with the Jews in Antioch in Pisidia, we should be aware of some modern evangelistic challenges seen through a comparison of Lordship Salvation and Free Grace. Those in Paul’s audience knew the scriptures, so it was effective for him to string together prophesies pointing to Christ. Review many of these Old Testament promises and see the familiar terms imputation, justification, forgiveness, propitiation, righteousness, and Christ the Servant. How does the resurrection seal the fulfillment of the Messianic prophesies? Do these Jews respond to Paul’s message?

Passage: Romans 3:1-12
Series: Romans (2010)
Duration: 1 hr 4 mins 43 secs
"There is none righteous, no, not one." We have all heard of total depravity, but what does that really mean? Romans 3 is perhaps one of the most debated chapters in the Bible with regard to the beliefs associated with Calvinism. Many arguments come out of what Paul says about faith. In this lesson, we are introduced to how truth, faithfulness, and righteousness are connected, and how closely related faithfulness is to truth. The ten rhetorical questions Paul poses in the first ten verses of this chapter merit a lot of consideration and investigation.
