Grace Community Church (San Antonio, Texas) January 11, 2015 – Tim Conway: Men’s Systematic Theology Study #7 (The Nature Of Biblical Truth)

Using Robert Reymond’s “A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith” as the supplementary textbook after the primary text, the Holy Scriptures.  Please check the GCC Livestream channel for streaming availability of future classes.

Today’s class: Chapter Four.

Christians should be overwhelmed by the magnitude of this simple truth that they take so much for granted – that the eternal God has deigned to share with us some of the truths that are on his mind. He condescends to elevate us poor undeserving sinners by actually sharing with us a portion of what he knows. – Robert L. Reymond (pg. 102 in A New Systematic Theology of the Christian Faith)

Grace Community Church (San Antonio, Texas) Sermon, January 4, 2015 – Tim Conway: Mountain-Moving Prayer

Mark 11:12 On the following day, when they came from Bethany, he was hungry. 13 And seeing in the distance a fig tree in leaf, he went to see if he could find anything on it. When he came to it, he found nothing but leaves, for it was not the season for figs. 14 And he said to it, “May no one ever eat fruit from you again.” And his disciples heard it….20 As they passed by in the morning, they saw the fig tree withered away to its roots. 21 And Peter remembered and said to him, “Rabbi, look! The fig tree that you cursed has withered.” 22 And Jesus answered them, “Have faith in God. 23 Truly, I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, ‘Be taken up and thrown into the sea,’ and does not doubt in his heart, but believes that what he says will come to pass, it will be done for him. 24 Therefore I tell you, whatever you ask in prayer, believe that you have received it, and it will be yours.

John Murray: Regeneration

“It has often been said that we are passive in regeneration. This is a true and proper statement. For it is simply the precipitate of what the Lord has taught us here.[1] We may not like it. We may recoil against it. It may not fit into our way of thinking and it may not accord with the time-worn expressions which are the coin of our evangelism. But if we recoil against it, we do well to remember that this recoil is recoil against Christ. And what shall we answer when we appear before him whose truth we rejected and with whose gospel we tampered? But blessed be God that the gospel of Christ is one of sovereign, efficacious, irresistible regeneration. If it were not the case that in regeneration we are passive, the subjects of such an action of which God alone is the agent, there would be no gospel at all. For unless God by sovereign, operative grace had turned our enmity to love and our disbelief to faith we would never yield the response of faith and love.”[2]

Grace Community Church (San Antonio, Texas) Sermon, December 21, 2014 – Tim Conway: Racism Condemned (1 John 2:15-17)

From I’ll Be Honest: “If you just think about what pride is, that is what racism is rooted in. It’s an attitude of superiority of valuing one race above all others or above another. Racism is a manifestation of the anti-God system that the Bible tells us not to love.”

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

Grace Community Church (San Antonio, Texas) Sermon, December 14, 2014 – Tim Conway: Do Not Love The World (1 John 2:15-17)

From I’ll Be Honest: “When John tells us “do not love the world”, the main thing he has in mind is not the possessions in the world. Rather his emphasis is on not falling in love with the world’s attitudes and and mindsets. To love the world is to love what is opposed to God.

15 Do not love the world or the things in the world. If anyone loves the world, the love of the Father is not in him. 16 For all that is in the world—the desires of the flesh and the desires of the eyes and pride of life—is not from the Father but is from the world. 17 And the world is passing away along with its desires, but whoever does the will of God abides forever.

Grace Community Church (San Antonio, Texas) Bible Study, December 9, 2014 – Randy Pizzino: Divine Work And Human Responsibility (Philippians 2:12-13)

12 Therefore, my beloved, as you have always obeyed, so now, not only as in my presence but much more in my absence, work out your own salvation with fear and trembling, 13 for it is God who works in you, both to will and to work for his good pleasure.

“Whatever Paul means by “work out your own salvation with fear and trembling,” you cannot read that with the idea that Paul is saying “I’m not sure about these Philippians.” That would be out of character with how the apostle is writing about them in chapter one verse six in which he is confident that they will make it to the end.”
