• Lesson two: what stood out was some of the terminology which I had never encountered regarding the Father Almighty. The professor discusses perspectives on the Trinity in terms of ontological trinity, the essence of God, and economic trinity, the relationship between the Father, Son and Holy Spirit as distinct personalities. Ontologically, the…[Read more]

  • Lesson one was jam packed with very information. I thought it was interesting that many people believed the legend that the Apostles each wrote one part of the creed…Peter “I believe in God the Father Almighty”, then each apostle down the line. I was unaware that there was the Old Roman Creed which was a precursor to the Apostles Creed. It…[Read more]

Our faith in God will carry us through. One of the underlying…[Read more]

They don’t realize it is all false prophecy and that they are dealing with the evil one. I like what he says at the end of the lesson: we need courage tempered by humility to…[Read more]

  • I was glad to reread the parables and hear explanations of them, particularly the parable of the tares or weeds. I wasn’t quite sure what it meant but now it makes total sense that the weeds and wheat must grow together, knowing that the weeds are the sons of the evil one and the good seeds are sons of the kingdom. Only at the end of the age we…[Read more]

  • It is great to know that when we submit ourselves to God, we can enjoy the Kingdom of God now, receiving spiritual blessings, peace, joy, and that we will be part of the Kingdom of God forever in the future.
