In this segment I will be talking about Biblical faith. What is it really? I will also be talking about and exploring an aberrant teaching about something called the "force of faith" and why it is dangerous and considered a misunderstanding about Biblical faith. Could this way of believing ruin your image of God and distort the one true God of the Scriptures? I will also be covering a brief overview about Systematic Theology and Biblical Theology and why they play a major role in knowing Scripture rightfully. Tune in this Thursday evening at 8 PM EST. Blessings In Christ! Hosted by Peter Jannetti.
Hebrew 11:1 says, "Now Faith is the substance of things hoped for, the evidence of things not seen. Often times, individuals get faith mixed up with just the act of believing. The reality is, Faith and Prayer work together- as one. God sees your faith through your ability to pray and activate His word in your life. So how is your Faith Time, today? Learn how you can grow your faith through prayer and daily bible study.
The History of Christianity #37
Our Scripture verse today is 1 Corinthians 12:8 which reads: "For to one is given by the Spirit the word of wisdom; to another the word of knowledge by the same Spirit."
Our quote today is from Dr. Darrell L. Bock. He said: "The key point is that Gnosticism was not a singular connected movement but more a way of seeing the world that produced a myriad of viewpoints on the themes tied to its definition."
Today, we are looking at "The Deposit of the Faith" (Part 2) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Gnosticism (Part 1)
Of all the differing interpretations of Christianity, none seemed as dangerous, nor as close to victory, as was Gnosticism. This was not a well-defined organization in competition with the church; rather, it was a vast and amorphous movement that existed both within and outside of Christianity. Within Judaism, partly as a response to the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple in 70 AD, some embraced Gnostic ideas, thus giving birth to a Gnostic Judaism that contradicted much of traditional Jewish teachings - particularly regarding divine creation and the goodness of the created world. Likewise, when Gnosticism incorporated the name of Christ and other items from the Judeo-Christian tradition into its diverse systems, it did so in such terms that other Christians felt that some crucial elements of their faith were being denied.
Over the last couple of years my life has gone through major ups and downs. God has put my feet to the fire and tested me in a varieties of ways. This has led me to hosting a radio show talking about the importance of faith and prayer if you hope to make it through hard times.
Our Scripture verse today is Hebrews 11:16 which reads: "But now they desire a better country, that is, an heavenly: wherefore God is not ashamed to be called their God: for he hath prepared for them a city."
Our quote today is from John Calvin. He said: "A dog barks when his master is attacked. I would be a coward if I saw that God's truth is attacked and yet would remain silent."
Today, we are looking at "The Defense of the Faith" (Part 5) from Dr. Justo L. Gonzalez's fine book, The Story of Christianity (Volume 1).
Today's subject is The Arguments of the Apologists
Justin's use of the doctrine of the Logos provided a basic framework within which Christians could claim whatever they wished from the rich lode of classical culture. But there still remained the need to refute the various objections raised against Christianity. Although it is impossible to list here all such refutations, some examples will give a general idea of the nature of the arguments of the apologists.
When accused of being atheists because they had no visible gods, Christians responded that in that case many of the greatest philosophers and poets were also atheists. To support that statement it sufficed to quote the ancient writers who had affirmed that the gods were human inventions, and that their vices were worse than those of their worshipers. Aristides suggested that such gods had been invented precisely in order to give full rein to human vice. Also, a common argument was that the idols, often made of gold and precious stones, had to be guarded against thieves. How can a god that must be protected provide any protection? How can a god made by human hands be above humans? On these points orthodox Christianity held to the doctrine of monotheism and divine creation that it had learned from its Jewish background...
Our exploration of Daniel continues with a closer look at chapter 9:24-27 and the fulfillment of the prophecy of the coming Messiah.

Is your faith authentic? Boy, that's a loaded question, isn't it? But, it's something you really need to take a hard look at. After all, you don't want to find out your faith isn't authentic when it's too late to do something about it. Tune in on Tuesday at 6pm Eastern, as we look to the epistle of First John and discover 3 tests of authentic Christianity.
Plus, with the Thanksgiving holiday right around the corner, I thought it would be good to look at the top things people are thankful for in 2014. How does 2014's list compare with 2013's list? We'll look at that as well.
