Introduction to The Biblical Narrative has been a great eye opener to me. In the study I discovered when and where the prophets opareted from eg before or during the exile. I also discovered the political reason for the triumphant entry of Jesus into Jerusalem and the people’s expectations. I equally had an eye opener on the fact that everything happening in Christianity is a fufilment of prophecy and Paul going to the gentiles was to fulfill prophecy. For these and so much more I therefore request that all ignorant pastors like me do take the rare opportunity offered by Axx to enrich the stuff they do dish to their flock. Thanks.

Church history part 2

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.

Great takeaway nuggets throughout the course. I gave my heart to the Lord when I stumbled across Christian radio one evening in NZ at 27yrs old and was blessed to be lead by Holy Spirit to an AOG church with a Senior Pastor who was an amazing teacher – so very much of what I heard was throughout the course was a refresher of what I been taught all those years ago.
