The book of Proverbs, with all its wisdom, observes, “There be three things which are too wonderful for me, yes, four which I know not: The way of an eagle in the air; the way of a serpent on a rock; the way of a ship in the middle of the sea; and the way of a man with a maid (young woman)” (Proverbs 30:18-19).
With the Proverb writer writing, “I do not know” or understand the way of a man with his woman, and the New Testament instruction, “Husbands dwell with your wives with understanding,” and wives being admonished to “love their husband.” it is obvious that understanding our spouses calls for much insight, openness, and effort.
The song of Solomon provides a unique perspective to challenge our view of attraction, marriage, intimacy, and sexuality. The graphic nature of the song of Solomon may be shocking to you. However, when we consider the statement,“For this is the will of God, your sanctification: that you abstain from sexual immorality; that each of you may know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor” (1 Thessalonians 4:3,4) we can comprehend why this is such a critical study. Our sexual gratification and subsequent avoidance of sexual immorality is realized within the marriage relationship. “Marriage is honorable among all, and the bed undefiled” (Hebrews 13:4). The chorus of the music of marriage is the undefiled bed.
Why is there such a diversity of religious doctrines? The Bible tells us we must speak as the oracles of God (I Peter 4:11). This study considers the sufficiency of the Word of God and the dangers of listening to those that tell us what we want to hear.
Perseverance through suffering is one of the most influential tools in leading other to Christ. Suffering means we are undergoing a struggle. Suffering hurts. Suffering is unique to each individual. Christians will and must endure suffering for Christ’ sake. Christians endure grief and suffer wrongfully (I Peter 2: 19). This study examines how we look at suffering.
What does it mean to not be a denomination? This misunderstanding grows out of a misconception of what the Church is. This study looks at what the Church of Christ is and answers the question ‘are any saved outside of Christ?’
Faith, hope and love are what we need to secure our future. However, opportunity often comes from adversity. Our challenge is to do God’s will, no matter what we might face. As an example, David faced great odds when he fought Goliath (I Samuel 17).
When faced with a challenge, we may ask ‘why should we think we can win?’ This study looks at how to handle personal challenges that seem impossible to overcome.
