    What is heresy, and what do we do about it?

    The Root of Heresy “And ye shall be as gods; knowing good and evil.” Genesis 3:5b The word “heresy” and the related word “heretic” are pejorative terms.

  • Lesson 2 : Truncated History Series

    Contributed by Rolland Bouchard on Dec 10, 2009
     | 3,370 views

    A very truncated look at the history of christianity. This message presupposes that many people believe restoration history bypasses the reformation and catholicism. However, it is unhealthy to not acknowlege our past. Instead we ought to embrace it.

    HISTORY: Very, Very Truncated. “In the past God spoke to our forefathers through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom he made the universe.” Hebrews 1:1 In trying to better ...read more

    based on 16 ratings
     | 15,889 views

    Some call it the Lord’s Supper. Some call it Communion. Some call it the Eucharist. Just as there are different names for the event, there are many different teachings about it. That confusion isn’t a new thing. It was going on even in the first century C

Lesson 5: The Council of Chalcedon So far, in our study of church history we have seen: An overview of the last 2,000 years of church history. The creeds which are found within the ...read more

    Read the Scriptures the way they were meant to be read, and use them to recommit yourself to following the Father.

    First Sunday of Lent 21 Feb 2010 Our family has always thought that buying American products is a sensible thing to do, so when Studebaker folded back in the fifties, my dad began buying GM products.

    Acts 10 is a pivotal chapter in Scripture. From this point on the church exploded in growth. In this story there are 3 groups of people who were "surprised" by what they saw. Why were they surprised, and what difference does that mean to us?

    (Before reading the Scripture I noted that Acts 10 is a pivotal chapter in Scripture. It was after this event at Cornelius’ house that the Church exploded with growth and numerous churches were set up throughout the known world). (After the Scripture reading and prayer, we showed the following ...read more
