Theology Thursday – The Trinity (part 2)

Last time with Theology Thursday, we began to work through one of the most difficult theological topics in all of Christianity; the doctrine of the Trinity.  We examined the 3 Persons/1 God construction to begin our last portion in mini-series on God’s nature.  Today, we’ll dive into understanding the divinity of each Person, discuss the Comma Johanneum, […]

Theology Thursday – Sovereignty of God

Our mini-series within Theology Thursday on God’s Nature keeps rolling along with this week’s installment focusing on the Sovereignty of God.  Last week we examined God’s Omnipresence.  We’ve also studied God’s Omnipotence, Omniscience, and Eternality. The Sovereignty of God begins, as do all things about God, in Scripture. “”Remember the former things long past, For […]

Theology Thursday – Omnipresence

Two weeks ago on Theology Thursday we examined the omnipotence of God in our ongoing series on the nature of God.  Today, we’ll continue by examining the Omnipresence of God. It is not necessarily illogical to claim that God is not always present.  A creator is not always in the presence of his creation.  For […]

Theology Thursday: God’s Nature – Omnipotence

Behold, You have made the heavens […]

Theology Thursday: God’s Nature – Omniscience

Last week, we began looking at God’s nature by examining his Eternality.  This week we will examine another aspect of God’s Nature; Omniscience. “Little children, let us not love with word or with tongue, but in deed and truth. We will know by this that we are of the truth, and will assure our heart […]

Theology Thursday: God’s Nature – Eternality

The foundation of the Gospel is God.  Without a solid foundation, we’re building a house that will simply fall down.  God isn’t like us so it’s important to draw on Scripture to define what God is and what can and should be attributed to Him These days it is fashionable to define God’s nature as […]

Theology Thursday – Theism (The Evidence of Creation)

Last time we discussed Theism we learned that the Bible makes two arguments for the existence of God.  The first is the evidence of conscience.  The second is creation, which we will examine today. Creation unmistakably demonstrates its creator, so much so that those who observe it are without excuse.

Theology Thursday – Theism (The Evidence of Conscience)

In building the case for Theism, the first claim we find is that the general knowledge we have about God is evident “within” even the wicked, and this is the direct result of God making it evident. For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men who suppress […]
