The Truth Project - Theology: Who is God?

It's time for Lesson 4 and it's a big one!
How can one define or describe God? It is like trying to define eternity.
The answer is we can’t completely. The amazing thing is that the omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent, creator of the
universe has chosen to reveal Himself to us.
Having explored the concept of truth itself and examined the biblical view of human nature – two basic issues that had to be settled before we could move on to the present discussion – Theology, or that branch of study and investigation that grapples with the question, “Who is God?” Knowing God ought to be our passion and our highest goal; for until we look upon His face, we cannot rightly know ourselves or begin to grasp the meaning of our existence in the world.

Here is a preview of this weeks lesson:

The Truth Project - Anthropology: Who Is Man?

Lesson 3

The Bible tells us that man was created in God's image but fell from innocence through sin. Modern psychology, on the other hand, asserts that man is inherently good and behaves badly only under the influence of social or institutional pressure. This lesson explores the implications of both views.

Join us this Thursday at 7pm for another night of probing conversation. It's not too late to join in the discussion. Here is the teaser for lesson 3. The full video is available here. Contact me, x-trials@brianborden.com, for the user name and password.

The Truth Project



Our Thursday Bible study at Starbucks is currently going through The Truth Project. We start lesson 2 this week. Check out the X-Trials website for more information!

A recent study revealed that only 9 percent of professing Christians have a biblical worldview.

Because of this, today's believers live very similarly to non-believers. A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy and we begin to wonder what life's ultimate purpose really is. We are, in short, losing our bearings as a people and a nation.

To counter this slide within the body of Christ, Focus on the Family has launched The Truth Project.

This study is the starting point for looking at life from a biblical perspective. Each lesson discusses in great detail the relevance and importance of living the Christian worldview in daily life.

Join us over the next few weeks as we ask and answer questions such as: What is Truth? Who is Man? Who is God? What is True Science? What should we be learning from history? What is the true nature of social systems? Am I Alone? Whose law do we obey? Where is America in God's plan? God cares, Do I?

Have some coffee and some frank discussions each Thursday at 7pm!
