What would you say to someone who has been drawn into the prosperity gospel and sees themselves as a conqueror instead of a sojourner?
If Adam would have obeyed his probationary period, he would have attained to eternal life with an incorruptible, glorified body of the new creation. But how would Adam and Eve have filled the earth with a glorified body. Would they have obtained eternal life after filling the earth?
If Christ is Lord over the whole Christian life but our only duty under the cultural mandate is to preach the gospel: In what way does Christ's lordship affect my job as a lay person?
How should we balance the distinction between imputed righteousness and personal righteousness?
From creation to consummation, the Bible declares the marvelous truth that God is the sovereign ruler of all. In this grand story of God’s providential care over all of his creation, we learn some very important truths about what it means that we were not only created in the image of God, but re-created by Jesus Christ, the Last Adam. This conference will explore this theme of God’s love and provision ultimately found in the Last Adam.
We will answer questions such as: Who is the first Adam and how are we connected to him? Who is the Last Adam and why does it matter? What is the “cultural mandate” that the first Adam received and how does that shape our roles in this world? How does Christ’s role as the royal High Priest in Hebrews help me understand my place in the new creation? How should I as a sojourner view and relate to fellow sons of Adam and daughters of Eve? How does faith in the Last Adam provide hope for today? Join us in January 2020 to find out.
