Theology Thursday

Welcome to Theology Thursday: We present select Bible studies and sermons from Pastor Bob Enyart of Denver Bible Church teaching from Scripture that:
- God is eternally free, inexhaustibly creative, and has existed from everlasting
- His main biblical attributes? He is living, personal, relational, good, and loving
- Proper hermeneutics flow not from Greek and Latin philosophy but from the primary biblical attributes of God
- The Bible explicitly affirms marriage and condemns moral relativism and all immorality including homosexuality
- As God is a person and created us in His likeness He expects us to stand for the personhood of the unborn
- God presents the Gospel of Jesus Christ, based on the death penalty, in Bible's context of criminal justice
- The Bible is not a science text (for they have to be corrected all the time) but instead is scientifically accurate. Enjoy!

It's Not a Miracle

* Don't Say Thus Saith the Lord If the Lord Hasn't Spoken: The crash landing in the Hudson river by US Airways pilot "Sully" Sullenberger was called the "Miracle on the Hudson." Last week, many said it was a miracle that 15-month-old Angel was found alive 10 miles from her Indiana home after a tornado. Sadly, yesterday in the hospital baby Angel died. Bob points out that when Christians wrongly allege that something is a miracle, they lost credibility with unbelievers and therefore undermine the spread of the Gospel of Jesus Christ. It is quite unlike any miracle in the Bible that God would throw a baby across town only to have her die of her injuries. Christians will give on another a lot of slack, but non-Christians will remember our fabrications. When we are so often seen to be obviously wrong, people won't believe us when we defend God's Word on other issues. In his article Miracle Dynamics Bob describes from the Bible the surprising negative effect of miracles on most people, in chapter 10 of The Plot, which is Bob's life's work and an overview of the whole Bible, Bob lists all of the 343 miracles and series of miracles in the Scriptures and what kind of effect all those miracles had on the people who received the miracles, and also on those who witnessed the miracles. This all makes for a stunning Bible study!

The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil

* Is the "Law" the Knowledge of Good and Evil? What is the meaning of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? What was the curse that began at the tree? What is the meaning of “Cursed is he who hangs on a tree” (Gal. 3:13; Deut. 21:23)? Why did Christ hang on a tree? What is the relationship between the Tree and the cross? Why did God nail the law to the cross (Col. 2:14)? What was the fate of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil? And what legacy has that tree left?

We are the Body, Israel is the Bride

Bob Enyart's life's work: The Plot* God Divorced Not the Remnant, but National Israel: And He says it will be a joyous day when, someday, He takes them back again and grafts them back in!

Are we both the Body AND the Bride?

Bob Enyart's life's work: The Plot* Who is the Bride of Christ: Israel or the Body? This important Bible topic influences many other beliefs that Christians hold, almost subconsciously.
