BIBLE QUESTIONS ANSWERED!
SUNDAY MORNINGS IN AUGUST, 11AM
Dr. Lee Brewer, UMC Pastor and previous seminary professor answers some of your most perplexing questions about the Bible & theology. You can hear these recorded sessions by returning to the homepage & clicking on the banner at top of page (click on 2nd button below the banner).
August 5: The Changing God?
Addresses various questions about why there seem to be differing views of God in the Old & New Testaments. Includes discussion about what it means to say all Scripture is “inspired.” If it's all true, how do we explain these seemingly conflicting images of God?
August 12: Sin & Salvation
Questions about what is required for salvation. What about unconfessed sins? Understanding the unique role of Jesus in salvation.
August 19: What We Are & Where We're Going
What is the human soul & spirit - what's the difference?
What happens when we die? Do we go to Heaven or do we sleep until Judgment Day?
August 26: Ethics & The Christian Life
What does the Bible say about slavery? Homosexuality?
How do the Bible's condemnations of certain behaviors fit with the Great Commandments to love God & neighbor, and with Jesus' "Do not judge" teaching.
