Why would God choose to record an obituary? Maybe it's to remind us that we are never forgotten in God's eyes. Genesis 5 is a long list of people we don't know. But God knows them . . . and that's all that matters.
Cain's fall was similar to the fall of his father, Adam. Both sins involved fruit, both were an act of defiance, and both men thought their way was better than God's. God's way isn't merely the best way . . . It's the only way.
God is interested in family harmony and confession between husband and wife. If your prayers aren't being answered, take a look at your relationship with your spouse!
Divorce runs rampant today. So what's the problem? Believe it or not, it's bad theology. If we would just get our theology straightened out . . . we could get our marriages straightened out as well.
Every human being, no matter how broken or evil is marked by the image of God. This lesson teaches why mankind was and always will be the climax of God's creation.

If Genesis 1 is false, then Jesus, who confirmed the record, the prophets, who declared the record, and the apostles, who taught the record, were all liars. Genesis must be true in order for Christianity to be true.
The Gospel didn't start at the empty tomb or the cross or even the manger. The Gospel started all the way back in Eden. To understand the full story of redemption, start at Genesis 1.
If the blood of the martyrs really is the seed of the Church, no wonder the author of Hebrews saved their stories for last in his account of biblical heroes. Learn from those who were called upon to make the ultimate sacrifice.
Many of the people named in Hebrews 11 don't seem to belong. They failed spiritually as much as they succeeded. In this lesson, you learn why God so graciously included them.

In Proverbs 5:7, Solomon warns us to stop flirting with sexual temptation and start fighting it. And in our culture that is becoming more pornographic by the day, it's imperative we heed this warning now . . . before it's too late.
Although knowledge and wisdom are both by-products of each other, they aren't the same. Knowledge has perceivable limits. When Socrates made that timeless statement, "I know that I do not know," he was implying that no man can know everything about everything. And he was right! But wisdom isn't like that. It can't be measured by an IQ test or graded on some definitive scale. So how can we measure wisdom in our lives? How do we know when we've got it? Stephen tells us in this message.
The story of Cain and Abel provides us with a lot of firsts in history: the first sibling rivalry, the first murder, the first account of true and false religion, and, of course, the first example of a human hero.
In this message Stephen reminds us that there is no true enlightenment apart from the Light of the World. All are lost in darkness. Worse yet . . . all embrace it.
