Does God only use people who fit our expectations for leadership? Listen to this lesson to learn about a time when no one in Israel was willing to lead the people and they sought out a tough guy who was a gang or cartel member and robbed and plundered.

Ephesians (2018)
Sun, Oct 30, 2022
by Robert Dean
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.
