(These are my notes for my last Sunday School of the year) Federal Vision – Sacraments and Baptism Ch. 27 – Sacraments I.

Wrong Worship Is Idolatry

“All worshiping, honoring, or service invented by the brain of man in the religion of God, without His own express commandment, is idolatry” (John Knox, Works, Vol. III, pg. 34). “For inasmuch as it was easy for the people to lapse into the imitation of the Gentiles, and to worship their false gods, under whoseContinue reading “Wrong Worship Is Idolatry”

Worship, Violation, Leadership

“Surely the first foundation of righteousness is the worship of God.

Eschatology: Christ Reigns

It is hard to get rid of old ideas that have been ingrained into your mind. Some of the ideas that you might have about, well, anything could have been established a long time ago from your parents or church or whatever.

Male and Female He Created Them

It is always interesting to hear how people or animals were born a certain way. I really mean this! Some people were born with a genetic makeup that makes them look a certain way!
