Misquoted Bible Passages”  Led by Dr. David Chupp

God gave us His Word to better understand Him and to serve as a guide for how we shall live.  So proper understanding of Scripture is vital. However, some of the most quoted Bible verses used in social media are taken completely out of context and misrepresent God.  This class will look at these passages, discuss the context, and discover a method of deeper study of Scripture.

“I Don’t Have Enough Faith To Be An Athiest” By Norman Geisler & Frank Turek

Led by Rev. Keith Monk. In this study the authors show, first of all, that truth is absolute, exclusive, and knowable.   From there, they proceed to demonstrate that the cardinal Christian doctrines are true beyond reasonable doubt, all convincing for you as a Christian to believe, but requiring a leap of  negative “faith” if an atheist is to disbelieve them.
