This year's study
What are you dealing with?
Homosexuality, religious extremism, the current political climate, substance abuse, family issues, conservative versus liberal. The list of controversial issues that Christians have an opinion about goes on and on, and everyone is different.
The social climate of the world today is one of intense division. Everyone has an opinion, everyone has their mind made. Yet we all struggle as well. Struggle with our own sins, struggle with how to conduct ourselves as Christians in the world, struggle with faith itself. Luckily for us, God has provided us with his Word, the Holy Scriptures, to have examples set and instructions given on how to conduct ourselves as follows of the Christ.
"All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work." 2 Timothy 3.16-17
This year CSF will be gathering weekly to dive into scripture, just as we have done the past two years. The difference is we will be deciding together what to study. At the beginning of the year we will discuss what is going on in the world, what our students are dealing and struggling with, then we will pick the Epistle that best addresses these topics. Mike has been working diligently and tirelessly to read through the Epistles from Romans to Jude, taking notes and writing a personal commentary on them to better understand the Word. Once a letter is picked, we will start in chapter 1 verse 1, and continue through until we're done, discussing the true intentions of the author, and what it means to us a Christians in today's society.
Our single goal is to span the gap between the Word and the World, discussing and discovering who God calls us to be and how to conduct ourselves today.
