"Study to shew thyself approved unto God,
a workman that needeth not to be ashamed,
rightly dividing the word of truth."
2 Timothy 2:15 KJV
The lesson on August 13, 2017 was part 25 of "The U, V and W of Right Division". Wayne reviewed what was taught last week when we learned of Calvinism and their TULIP principles but he continued in this lesson to look at quotes from famous Calvinists and refutes their points by looking at what the scripture says. In particular, we studied the term "Election" and looked how the Calvinist define it and what scripture says about it. We also looked at Matthew 22 and learned how this passage helps in combating them scripturally. The scripture reading was from Matthew 22:1-14 KJV
This study is a follow up to the ABC's of Right Division. The lessons in this study will take a deeper look into the basis or right division and why it is important to understand how it helps you understand scripture. It will compare other beliefs like Preterism, and those based in covenant theology and look at some critiques of what opponents of right division object to this fundamental methodology of handling scripture accurately.
Every month I promise myself that I will just write about good things, try not to be controversial and be positive like the popular preachers are. Something always jars me back to reality and the seriousness of God’s calling. Five years ago doctors diagnosed me with a rapid growing lung cancer and gave me a year to live. God Almighty changed that, gave me additional duties and this year the doctors announced me cancer free. Seven times each week God lets me stand before different classes and tell them about His Son. I get to serve as a jail chaplain and a police/fire chaplain.
