God has given us everything a Christian needs for a godly life. He does this through the knowledge of Him and His Son which we find in the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Everything that we need. And yet today, just as in the early church, we find those who would pervert this Gospel and nullify its message of salvation.
This teaching explores the very real threat faced by the Church from these worldly ideologies, and the importance of staying vigilant against their influence.

Paul’s second letter to the Corinthians is a heartfelt, comforting, and inspiring section of Scripture. It was likely written about 4-6 months after 1 Corinthians. The believers there had gone way off track in many categories of God’s exhortation to them as set forth in Romans, and even though it was painful for him to do, Paul reproved them over and over throughout his first epistle. Given that they took heed to his reproof (the correction of practical/behavioral error), his second letter is filled with heart and love and anticipation of seeing them again and enjoying sweet fellowship with them. It also points them to the glorious HOPE of Christ’s coming back for them and him.

Compassion is an essential part of God's character, and mankind is the object of that compassion. In Isaiah 49:15, God tells us that, even though there exists a remote possibility that a compassionate mother would forget her dear child, God will never forget us. This same compassion was highlight of Jesus's earthy ministry. In this teaching, Jon Touchstone takes an in-depth look at compassion with all of its wonderful aspects that will help you to grow in compassion toward others.
