It was so empowering just to know power accumulation in those days led to major corruption. The things people were doing in private were now done publicly eg murder, sex and people became greedy. People rejected the way of Christ. Forgiveness was based on contributions people made in church. Salvation is by faith in Christ alone. What a great awakening in the 1730 when the God’s spirit began. Wesley saw the need for methodical process for people to grow in faith. Massive expansion of missinary activities realised in the 19th century.

Sometimes things we look at them lightly yet they have a great analysis. I have learnt a lot on these topics. I liked the comparism of trinity in Old Testament and New Testament. interesting topic when getting into details on the trinity of God and how three works together. This show how God is a God of order so as the church should be. the works of Christ and the Holy Spirit, that was really an eye-opening topic for me, because sometime we read the scripture and want to interpret it on our own forgetting the author and helper in order to interpret it according to the need of the church while still in the rightful assignment of God.
Thank you so much Ministry Axx Global.

The subject of humanity in relation to God has been really been insightful and at the same time challenging at a personal level. In the last session, we looked at the issue of the poor and how we as Christians should respond. I believe we cannot as Christians ignore this issue but in one way another take action because this is the heart of God.

I really thank you for a job well done. I enjoyed studying with ax.global ministry now I have a better understanding of the bible … seeing it as one story. A story with an orientation, complication and resolution. Got to understand the Hebrew structure of scripture Tanak. I got clear revelation of circumcision of the heart as the new covenant. As Christians we are powered by the Holy Spirit and we are led by the Holy Spirit. The relationship of the Father, the son and the Holy Spirit as one person became very clear and knowing that God is changeless in his character.
The communicable and non communicable attributes of Deity were clarified in such a way that I’m no longer confused. Knowing the work of the Holy Spirit in the church was an eye opener to me , even the gifts of the Spirit.
Once again thank you all.
