The lesson on April 14, 2019 was part 11 of the "Genesis" study. Wayne summarized the focus on Free Will and God's sovereignty in how He does not cause sin or evil acts but once men choose to do evil, as God He then can further harden their heart until they perform an evil act but God can use it for good. For example we see "eyes have they closed" which was ordained by man! As the evil act gets closer, "eyes are further closed by God". Then when the evil act happens it is ordained by God for use to His purpose. We looked at Romans 5:12 and studied the phrase "for all have sinned" and looked at two issues. Are we guilty of Adam's sin (in one man) or are we guilty only of our own personal sin (because of one man)? We looked at Deuteronomy 24:16 which indicated the latter. We are not held responsible for Adam's sin but we do suffer from it. The calvinist prefer the that we are guilty of Adam's sin. Wayne was using the fact that we are guilty only of our own personal sin could possibly solve the issue of the death of a baby or child. God who is righteous will resurrect the aborted child, baby or adolescent child who die before they commit their own sin. The scripture reading was from Romans 5:12-16 KJV

This study followed the "From the Beginning" study and began to look at the word "foundation". This study explains that the context of this word is different from the foundation spoken of in 1 Corinthians 3:11 KJV "For other foundation can no man lay than that is laid, which is Jesus Christ." This foundation in this verse is the Greek word "themelios" The foundation identified in this study is found in Ephesians 1:4 KJV "4 According as he h
