What are elders to take heed to? What are preachers told to take heed to? Both are admonished by the apostle Paul to first take heed to themselves. From there, the admonitions are different. Study with us how and why.
Elders and preachers both have scriptural requirements regarding their character, the example that they show and their teaching. In this lesson, we examine the similarities and differences.
A short lesson from Arthur Anderson about God's rainbow and its real meaning
Your resume, your obituary, and your eulogy are some of the most important statements about who you are. In this sermon, we see which is the most important, which you have the most control over, and what is the final word about your life.
Matt Erb offers his insights and application to the truth that "Jesus as Lord" as an instructor of youth and a professional engaged in public life.
Golden Rule is the pinnacle of moral conduct. Jesus pointed out the great generosity of God in preparing us for this highest of all callings. As God has been generous to us, we are called to be to others.
John's audience, like we are today, was being overwhelmed by know-it-alls. These arrogant folks mistreated others and denied basic tenets of the gospel based on godless philosophies and reasons. In this lesson, we see how John reassured the brethren about what they knew that was true and how they knew they should treat one another.
Many religious leaders of Jesus' day gave charity, said prayers and fasted in a way to make sure everybody knew about it and gave them proper credit for it. But doing things to burnish your reputation and show yourself off while during religious duties were not the way of God.
Matthew 7, verses 1-12, can be summed up as living with a generous spirit, just as God does for us. The teaching about this kind of life concludes with the “Golden Rule.” The golden rule can never be followed, can never really be applied to our lives, while we give off a judgmental attitude to those around us. In this lesson, we consider Jesus' saying, "Judge not, that you be not judged."
The most basic truth in the world is the Christ is risen, so is Lord, and that He calls us to salvation and service. We consider what these truths mean for us daily.

Jesus called his followers to true discipleship, following Him closely for our benefit here and hereafter. But sometimes we find a number of internal, selfish things get in the way. We examine those things so that we can do our best to rid ourselves of them.
In this study, we look at the basic gospel teaching that we live by love towards others in all our relationships and that we need to always be giving and receiving the things that flow from it: forebearance, forgiveness, mercy and peace.
The answers that we give to fundamental questions, and the assumptions behind them, shape our whole view of life and purpose. In this study, we examine how Christianity and the secular views answer these questions in very different ways.

Jesus says not to bear false witness and not to make deceptive oaths. As our study of the Sermon on the Mount continues, we see who Jesus tells His disciples just to say "yes" or "no" and be fundamentally honest.
