1 & 2 Peter
Summer Sessions 2017 • June 25, 2017 • Allen Jackson
The objective of Peter’s letter is to help the scattered disciples, the “resident aliens” understand who they are in Christ and how to live in a culture that ranges from apathetic to hostile in they way it receives a person who is passionately becoming more like Jesus.
Distinctively Different Discipleship
Summer Institute • June 4, 2017 • Allen Jackson
Holiness is not an add-on, an accessory. It is a way of thinking, acting, feeling and believing. In a time of persecution, holiness becomes more difficult and more critical. Authentic Christians should expect pushback and even rejection for their faith. Discipleship is distinctively different as a lifestyle and the value system of Jesus contrasts greatly with that of the world. Holiness is the response to such persecution.
