- Marriage, Divorce & Remarriage
- Dan Schoepf
After last week's powerful testimony of Dr. Yuan and speaking on Holy Sexuality, this week's topic is appropriate. In Genesis 2, Adam was created and God new that it was not good for Adam to be alone, so He created woman, Eve, out of one of Adam's ribs. Now Adam had a helpmate. It is for this reason that a man shall leave his father and mother and be united to his wife. And they become one flesh. 1 Corinthians 7 reminds us of God’s will for marriage “… each man should have sexual relations with his own wife, and each woman with her own husband. The husband should fulfill his marital duty to his wife, and likewise the wife to her husband. ...”. For responsibilities of the Christian in marriage, read the rest of 1 Corinthians 7.

Ephesians 2:11-22 provides the key to reconciling the differences within and between the various population groups of the world. That key is Jesus Christ. The differences between these groups is many times a barrier between them but Jesus had as His purpose to create in His body of believers “One Humanity”, all believers, regardless of Race has the same access to God and as a result, we are no longer strangers nor foreigners but FELLOW citizens of His family, built on the foundation of the Apostles and Prophets where Christ Jesus Himself is the cornerstone.

- The Gospel in a Selfie generation
- Aaron Thomson (Guest Speaker)
In this day and age, it appears that young people are self absorbed as shown by their obsession with “Selfies”, photos of oneself and we are in danger of losing the ability to communicate person to person, and this is a problem for Christians. In Matthew 9 we are told “Go out and train everyone you meet, far and near, in this way of life, marking them by baptism in the threefold name: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. Then instruct them in the practice of all I have commanded you. I’ll be with you as you do this, day after day after day, right up to the end of the age” (The Message). This is not something that can occur by social media alone.
