Questions for Study

According to Scripture, what is eternal life?  Is it a quantity or a quality or…

What is the connection between Jesus Christ & the life…made manifest, I John 1:2.

When do believers first come into possession of eternal life?  See John 5:24.  

How is the eternal life Jesus gives believers not only a possession, but also power?  How, for example, do the Fruit of the Spirit, Galatians 5:22-23, and the gifts of the Spirit, I Corinthians 12, relate to eternal life?

Questions for Study

How does our first core value place us in direct opposition to this world’s values & aims, as well as in direct opposition to our old human nature?

How was Jezebel’s campaign to silence God’s prophets/Word bearers & supplant them with her Baal & Asherah prophets a general practice since Satan first approached Adam & Eve in the Garden of Eden?

How is every moral decision we make ultimately a matter of who we truly confess as lord/Lord, as the Ultimate Authority?

Boil it all down, we have two choices of whom we shall serve. Who are they?

How is the decision to believe & trust the Gospel ultimately a matter of believing who is God; of who is True & final authority?  I John 1:5-10.
