Decades after the Civil Rights Movement, America is still grappling with racism. The topic of race fills our news headlines, our city streets, and even our pulpits. Recognizing the centuries-old mistreatment of minority groups, how should Christians respond to racism? Is it possible to respond in sensitive ways that actually make a difference? How should our faith inform and transform the way we think about race? In this study we explore racism from a Biblical perspective and seek to understand how we can, as those affected by this scourge, allow our light to shine, even through the darkness of racism.
Fights. Rumors. Factions. It’s all here in 1 Corinthians. Few other passages of Scripture reveal the humanity of Christians as vividly as this book does. Some other topics include: Dealing with a sex-crazed society. Divorce—when is it justified? When Christians can and cannot sue. Get ready! You’re about to encounter God’s perspective on some hot topics. And in the process you’ll see how the church can impact today’s world.
Some questions loom over all others in our desperation for an answer. How do I know if God is speaking to me? How do I know what I was born to do? Why does God allow people to suffer? How can I deal with depression and discouragement? This course tackles these questions by pondering the answers provided in Scripture.
God can use difficulties to strengthen us. Knowing this can bring hope and reassurance that eternal life is God's ultimate purpose. Read 1 Peter to discover how faith, refined by suffering, can help us see the Lord more clearly. This is valuable advice for holding firm in difficult times.
