I & II Kings | Randy Beaver & Tim Faust | Sanctuary

The book of Kings is an accurate and interpreted history of two sets of kings over two sets of disobedient people, Israel and Judah. 1 Kings starts with the reign of Solomon over a united kingdom, but this was not to last. Solomon’s indifference to God’s Law and His prophets spread to the people and doomed both nations to eventual judgement and exile. The author of the book was likely a prophet of Israel and as such teaches that God required obedience to His Law from both the king and the people. Unfortunately, the history shows that all of the kings of the northern tribes and most of the kings of the south led their people to sin by not confronting idolatry, but actually sanctioning it.

The author wrote the book of Kings to teach the exiles in Babylon three important truths. First, that the Lord judged Israel and Judah because of their disobedience to His Law and this unfaithfulness of the people demanded God to exercise His righteous wrath against the nations. Second, that the words of the prophets all came to pass proving that the Lord always kept His Word, even those of warning and judgement. Finally, God remembered His promises to David despite the disobedience of his heirs. The line of David was maintained to show His faithfulness and trustworthiness in blessing as well as judgement. These lessons apply at all times and can provide comfort to us even today.

Knowing Sin | Ron Reed & Christian Schwenig | Overflow

“Sin is the worst of Evils, the evil of evils, and indeed, the only evil; nothing is evil but sin.” So wrote the Puritan pastor Ralph Venning 400 years ago. Other than knowing God, our greatest Advocate, nothing else is more important than knowing Sin, our greatest enemy. Perhaps it seems a bit morbid and dismal to study a topic such as this but there may be few topics more needed in the evangelical church today. A proper understanding of grace requires a thorough grasp of sin. A distorted and weak view of sin leads to a disfigured and anemic perception of Christ our Savior. Thomas Watson well said, “The more  bitterness we taste in sin, the more sweetness we shall taste in Christ.”

In this elective we will explore the origin and Biblical definition of sin, discuss the “deadly” and “respectable” sins, and study sin’s drift into backsliding, apostasy, and final destiny. Join us for a practical and discussion-oriented class as we seek to equip ourselves for our life-long battle.
