Lessons from Paul: The Lordship of Christ

October 12, 2019

Paul is noted as the quintessential New Testament author that exemplifies the notion that salvation is not by works but by grace through face in Jesus Christ. However, a closer examination of Paul's writings reveals the idea of the Lordship of Christ. This seems antithetical to the idea of grace but Paul frames Lordship as the response of every born again believer to grace. Listen as Pastor David examines the Lordship of Christ and how it practically applies to our day to day lives.

In the 1800's southern pastors used Paul's writings to support the practice of slavery. Today we wonder how Paul's writings could be so twisted to endorse slavery! What were the faulty principles of interpretation (hermeneutics) they used arrive as such heinous conclusions? Whether it be women's ordination, head covering, or the silence of women during church it seems that Paul's writings have been at the center of many theological controversies in the last 2,000 years of Christian history. How do we go about the task of interpreting Paul's letters today? Listen as Pastor David shares a simple study on hermeneutics and Paul's writings.
