06 OriginalsinQuestion

01_1_Original_Sin_Intro
01_1_Original_Sin_Intro Lesson 1 of 6 Many in the religious world accept in one form or another, the idea that sin is transmitted from generation to generation, not just by what a person does, but through the stream of life inherited from their forefathers, beginning with Adam. Is that True? What does the Scriptures say?
02_1_Sin_Guilt_and_Jews
02_Sin_Guilt_and_Jews Lesson 2 of 6 on Original Sin. Some say that because of Adam’s transgression, all men are guilty, under the just “wrath and curse of God,” and are liable to the “pains of hell forever.” Even new born babies open their eyes in this world are guilty and condemned from the moment of their birth. What does the scriptures say?
03_1_Adams_Sin_and_Death
03_Adams_Sin_and_Death Lesson 3 of 6 on Original Sin In Psalm 51:1-4,7 David is repentant, he is pouring out his heart to God. He says he was surrounded by sin from conception. Sin has tainted his whole life. He confessed his own sins, not Adam’s sin. The scriptures point to the fact we are all responsible for our own sin. Rom 5:12-21
04_1_Adams_Sin_and_Infants
04_Adams_Sin_and_Infants Lesson 4 of 6 on Original Sin Infants die, not because they sinned, but because Adam lost access to the tree of life, and away from the Tree of Life in the garden all life became subject to death and decay. Physical death is now an everyday reality.
05_1_Adam_Jesus_Compared
05_Adam_Jesus_Compared Lesson 5 of 6 on Original Sin Romans 5:12-21; Through Adams disobedience, his sin separated him from God and if we disobey like him
we will suffer the same fate of separation. Jesus showed by His obedience that it does not have to be like that, If we become obedient to the will of God as Jesus did
And accept God’s grace on His terms then we too can be made righteous through Jesus blood.
06_1_Law_Sin_Grace
06_Law_Sin_Grace Lesson 6 of 6 on Original Sin The law exposed and revealed SIN
This means that through the coming of the Law, more and more sin became evident. Rom 5:20 “Sin Abounded” But, Paul says, that where SIN increased, GRACE "OVER-ABOUNDED. “The grace of our Lord was exceedingly abundant, with faith and love which are in Christ Jesus.” (1Tim 1:14)

09 The Wayof Salvation

06c_00_Things_that_Save_Us
06c_01_Things_that_Save_us What does the N.T. Says about our salvation by the Grace of God through the blood of Jesus? Is it all of God or do we have to respond to His message.
Acts_02_38a_Time_line
06c_01_Acts_Time_line We need to be aware of the context? Jesus Death Burial and Resurrection is the fulcrum point Acts 2 is where Peter explains for the first time that salvation through the blood of Christ is available to mankind
06d_01_Way_of_Salvation
06d_01_Way_of_Salvation Lesson 1 of 3 Why Jesus Came / The need for the death of Jesus From the announcement of His conception, the mission of Jesus was linked to our spiritual recovery. Jesus said that He had come:- "to seek and to save what was lost" and "to give His life as a ransom for many.” (Luke 19:10;)
06d_85_Way_of_Salvation
06d_85_Way_of_Salvation Lesson 2 of 3 Having established our need of God’s grace by admitting we are sinners. Having seen God’s grace demonstrated in the death burial and resurrection of Jesus. We need to ask ourselves the question, How do we respond to God’s grace?
06d_143_Way_of_Salvation
06d_143_Way_of_Salvation Lesson 3 of 3 Having a Christian attitude and disposition does not make a person a Christian. We need to accept the grace of God through the blood of Jesus on God’s terms, not ours. Through His grace He offers us the pardon or forgiveness of our sins. And that gift of forgiveness cannot be earned by anything we do.
06e_00_What_is_Faith
06e_01_What_is_Faith? It is “primarily, firm persuasion, a conviction based upon hearing. The New Testament often uses faith as a synonym of trust. “And if Christ be not risen, then is our preaching vain, and your faith is also vain.” The word “faith” is also used in reference to what one believes, the content of one’s faith. That is especially true of Paul’s letters.
06f_01_Faith_Alone_and_Eis
06f_01_Faith_Alone_and_Eis Lesson 1 of 3 I was challenged by someone who objected to me saying that it was in baptism we identified with the death burial and resurrection of Christ and at that point have our sins forgiven because of the blood of Jesus. Also the use of Eis (for or because of) in Acts 2:38 This study was undertaken in response to that challenge and the ensuing discussions.

06g_01_What_is_Repentance
06g_01_What_is_Repentance One of the most neglected subjects in preaching is repentance. The command that seems to cause more PEOPLE stumble over than any other is that of "repentance." Jesus said: "unless you repent, you will all likewise perish." (Luke 13:3)
06h_01_What_is_Confession
06h_01_What_is_Confession There is a lot of preaching done about the things that save us yet in many of these areas there is often a lot of confusion generated by misunderstanding some of these and the part that they play in our salvation. Confession is one of these.
06i_01_What_is_Baptism
06i_01_What_is_Baptism Lesson 1 of 2 We need to agree that the Scriptures are the FINAL court of appeal on the subject. Baptism is a New Covenant subject, the evidence we need to examine must be consistent with the teaching in the New Testament Scriptures.

06j_00_Conversions_in_Acts
06j_01_Conversions_in_Acts The purpose of this lesson is to help us understand further the message of God’s grace and how the early Christians responded to the message of His love. If you plant an acorn seed an oak should grow. If we understand the same gospel as proclaimed by the apostles and respond in the same way, we ought
to become Christians in the same way.
06k_01_Conversions_Chart_study
06k_01_Conversions_Chart_Study This is an interactive study through the conversions to Christ in the book of Acts seeing what the text says about those who responded to the message of God’s grace through the obedience of faith.
06bb01_Finding_God
06bb01_Finding_God. Is there a God. Can we find Him, Then we find that He is searching for us. When we were utterly helpless with no way of escape, Christ came at just the right time and died for us sinners who had no use for him. God proves his love for us in that while we still were sinners Christ died for us. 

10 Newness OfLife

07a_00_Newness_of_life
07a_00_Newness_of_life Many people would like to be followers of Jesus But do not want the responsibility and accountability that the privileged relationship brings. Following Jesus is not about rules it is about relationship. Following Jesus challenges us to be like Him.

07b_00_Cost_of_Discipleship

08a_00_God_and_His_Kingdom
08a_01_God_and_His_Kingdom Lesson 1 of 2 We need to recognize that the word Kingdom like many words in the Bible can have a wide application and a specific application. In its wider application it means more than just referring to the called out by Christ. The term "kingdom" in the Bible characteristically means the reign, rule or the exercise of sovereignty.
08a_00_God_and_His_Kingdom
