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 series studies the importance of a resurrection to the believer. The Sadducees didn’t believe in a resurrection yet Paul said it best, if we have hope only in this world , we are all most miserable (1 Cor 15:19). This series explains why you should believe in a resurrection. It also studies “when” it happens and “who” is involved.
According to 2 Timothy 2:15, we need to study the Bible to be approved unto God, handling His scripture accurately and applying it in our lives so we can be about His business and grow as Christians. The study of “Dispensations” is just recognizing that the administrations of God change over time.
