Based on J. Compton's lessons
Making Time for the Master
First, listen and takes notes on the audio lesson at this link: Origin of Evil
Complete these exercises, then study them with your notes
- Study Jesus statement in Matthew 12:25. Be prepared to explain why it is not possible for God to have created both good and evil.
- Read Genesis chapter one. Count the times it states that God created something and was not pleased with it. Also, count the number of times that God felt good about what He had created.
- Understand the meaning of Numbers 23:19 and Hebrews 6:18
- How can a glass of water be boiling and frozen solid at the same time?
- Goodness means to be dependent on Christ. John 15:5 I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.
- What does Romans 3:10-18 reveal about humans as free moral beings. That means we are free to choose to obey God, or to disobey God. If a camera followed you around recording your thoughts and deeds for 24 hours a day would something similar be recorded?
- Given 2 examples of how the devil's expressed belief in Job 2:4 is evident in the world around you.
- Research what it means for Jesus the Christ to have reconciled humanity with God (this is not how He did it).
