A Religion That Makes Sense
Bro. Sam DiLiberto
By the grace of God, we have been given the understanding of truth in the one true gospel. During our 5 classes we will talk about how to be better prepared to discuss the truth to a friend, a neighbor, or a member of our family interested in learning about truth of gospel. We will also talk about being "ready always to give an answer to every man (or woman) that asketh (us) you a reason of the hope that is in you with meekness and fear."
In preparation for these classes we will walk through a practical approach in teaching someone the truth. Are the words of Jesus in Mark 16:15 applicable to us today?..... and if so, are we prepared to talk about things concerning the gospel of the Kingdom of God to anyone that asks us about our faith or asks us what the Christadelphians believe and teach?
If asked by a neighbor or a friend at work about what the Christadelphians believe, where would we begin, where do we start? Lord willing, by the end of the week, you will have a practical outline to use to discuss with someone the plan of the Creator; to one day fill the earth with His glory. As a believer "in Christ", we should be able to talk about our faith, namely the things concerning the name of Jesus Christ and the coming Kingdom upon this earth.
We all should be prepared to talk about the "hope of Israel" and not be "ashamed of the gospel of Christ for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also to the Greek"
The first two classes will center on our belief, our baptism, and our walk in the truth.. the next three classes we will discuss some practical talking points when talking to someone about our life "in Christ".
In the 5 classes we will also take a logical approach in looking at some of the first principles in teaching God's truth. We will show how all the pieces of the truth perfectly fit into place like a puzzle and how all so many of the first principles build upon another first principle truth. We will discuss the Covenants of Promise, Baptism, Resurrection, and the Kingdom of God on the earth....all first principles that separate us from mainstream Christian theology. The goal will be to prepare us in talking about "reason for the hope that is with us"..... and show that we truly believe in a religion that makes sense.
