It appears we will have a carry-over theme since all activities were cancelled on Feb 17.
The Mediator!
I recommend saying that with all the slowness & gusto of one of Arnold Schwarzenegger's characters.
But, this hero was not a created cybernetics humanoid. This hero was not even created, but was before the world ever existed. This hero doesn't save a person or a culture, this person saves all humanity. This human hero isn't just human, but incarnate. Fully God & fully human. Then, this hero went to suffer greatly for the redemption & reclamation of all humans who accept Him & believe in Him.
We study Q&A 16-19 today, working our way towards naming this hero.

The Meeeeeedddiiaaaaa-tor!

Lord's Day #5
Q&A's 12-15
Beginning the section on humanity's deliverance. As we begin this first LD in this section, still we are faced with a desire to fix it ourselves. Can I do it? Okay, if not, can I find someone else to do it? Okay, how about if I find SOMETHING else to do it? Fine! So, what do I need in a deliverer?

Not uncommon thing for we humans. God gave us the ability to reason -- so we 'reason' ourselves to death - literally.
  • Scripture Genesis 3: 8-17
  • Date Sunday, 03 February 2019
Lord's Day #4 in the Heidelberg Catechism. This is the last of the first section, refered to as "Misery" or "Guilt" or "Sin" -depending on to what section names you subscribe. We explore some difficult questions in this Lord's Day.
  • Scripture Genesis 3:1, 6-7, 17-18
  • Date Sunday, 27 January 2019
A year in the Heidelberg Catechism -- for expanding our brains.

Sunday, we are already 4 Sundays into this. We have considered the 'why' of the HC and a little history. We discussed what the HC has to offer us in our modern lives. Then, we jumped in. The Heidelberg is divided into "Lord's Day" pieces. The first Lord's Day introduces the entire theme of the HC. Lord's Day (LD) #2 begins the section on "Guilt" or "Misery" and this Sunday, we are on LD # 3

The discover & acknowledgement that we (as humans) need help is critical. But, wait, so do I as an individual. I need help!

The first step in recovery is to acknowledge one needs help. So, Delivery is not far away.

Jesus said to him, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6
