Kris and Kathy discuss with school of ministry students the importance of managing your soul, and learning how to get your needs met.
Character matters. Whenever you emphasize grace to the place where you take away personal responsibility, you have a different gospel. There's no question that God gave you the grace to do what you do. The question is, what do you do with the grace God gave you?
Kris discusses core issues such as virtue, righteousness, and integrity, and how making right choices in hard times and learning how to sacrifice is very important for our development. Sometimes doing the right thing doesn't appear to turn out well, but that is only from our limited perspective. God sees and remembers.
In Matthew 5:43-48 Jesus exchanges the Old Covenant for the New, explaining that God "sends rain on the just and unjust." God's mercy is for both the righteous and sinners. The church must remember that we are on the other side of the cross. God did not send His Son to condemn the world, but to save the world through Him.
Kris unpacks the nature, definition, function, and purpose of a New Testament prophet.
Kris discusses root causes of abortion, including cultural mindset shifts in the last century about the value of children, as well as the eschatology the church embraced.
There is a process to receiving the promises of God. Between the promise and the palace, there is the process. There is a fight for the promised land. Being aware of the enemy's tactics equips us to fight effectively.
God said that His Spirit would be poured out on all flesh. What will it look like when this happens? We might be very surprised.
