029 - Gospel of Matthew

Matthew 9:9-13

September 11, 2016 • Jon Wood • Changed In a Moment

There are moments in life when things are changed forever. The date of 9/11 is burned into our memories as a moment when everything changed. We cannot go to a ballgame or even the airport now without being reminded of that moment. Security is heightened due to the terror attacks and life as we know it has a "new normal." However, not all moments of change are negative. In the case of Matthew, his life was changed forever, for the good, because of an encounter with Jesus. This type of transformation still happens today.

The Batman Heresy of Liberalism • January 16, 2019 • David Tarkington

Liberalism in this context is not political, but religious. It is not new, but found footing in the late 1700s and early 1800s under the teachings of German pastor and professor Friedrich Schleiermacher. More recently those who adhere to the teachings of the Jesus Seminar from the late 20th century continue to affirm that Jesus may have been fully human, but he certainly isn't God. This is the second session using modern-day mythos to explain the ancient heretical teachings on the identity of Christ that impact Christianity even today. Taught by Pastor David Tarkington with much information from Todd Miles book "Superheroes Can't Save You."

The Superman Heresy of Docetism • January 9, 2019 • David Tarkington

Docetism is not a word often heard in conversations today, but this ancient heresy still finds its way in the church. Docetism ignores the full humanity of Christ, which in addition to his full deity are vital to the gospel. This is the first session using modern-day mythos to explain the ancient heretical teachings on the identity of Christ that impact Christianity even today. Taught by Pastor David Tarkington with much information from Todd Miles book "Superheroes Can't Save You."
