The Alive Bible Classes Have Ended!
What an awesome journey this has been! During Alive we were able to explore the basic story of scripture and its relevance to our lives. We began with the nature of God before creation and from there the story moved into creation, the rebellion in heaven, the fall of man, and God's plan of healing and redemption for the human race. We explored questions related to suffering, pain, and the presence of evil in our world. We explored Gods remedy to the virus of sin and caught a glimpse of his unending love through the life, death, and resurrection of Jesus. Then, we finished the class by exploring how God forgives our sin, changes our lives, and how in him we find freedom from shame and regret. Those who have embraced this free gift are now a part of his family (the church) and together we work to bring others into his family until Jesus returns. Along the way we explored lots of questions and came to see the beauty of God in a whole new way.
- But its not over yet! This Friday at 7pm we begin a whole new class called God Who? where we will explore questions such as:
- If God is so good why has the church done so many evil things in the past?
- Does organized religion lead to injustice and genocide?
- Is God a cruel monster?
- Who is Satan and why did he rebel against God?
- Why is Christianity divided into so many different groups, ideas, and sub-cultures?
- If God is so loving, why does he burn people in hell forever?
- How can Christians preach peace and love when their history is filled with human right violations such as the Crusades and the Inquisitions?
- Why do Christians say Jesus is coming soon? They have been saying that for centuries and still nothing. Is he really coming back?
- Don't all religions teach a "returning savior"? If so, what makes Christianity different?
These and many other profound questions will be explored primarily through the books of Daniel and Revelation so don't miss out! This class will meet 7pm on the following Fridays: June 3, 24, July 29 and August 5. If you have any questions visit our God Who? page here and feel free to contact us.
