Does God Change His Mind?

Today we start a new series in the Old Testament in which we study three of the most important kings of Israel: Saul, David, and Solomon.

Belief And Action

We have been told that we are saved by faith alone, and not by actions. But there sure is a lot of scripture that tells us how and how not to act. So what is the truth? Do we only need to believe? Or is it our actions that save us? Dr. John Akers looks at this question in today's installment of Understanding God's Word.

Committed Disciples

God calls for us to become fully committed to our discipleship. But what does that look like in action? Dr. John Akers talks us through this concept in today's Understanding God's Word.

Parting Words

This week in Understanding God's Word, we look at difficult moment in the life of Paul. As he was writing 2nd Timothy, Paul knew that he was speaking to his closest friend for what was almost certainly the very last time. Dr. John Akers takes us through the final advice of a Godly man.

Laws Of God And Man

We are all subject to the laws of the country in which we live. But we have also chosen to follow the law of God. What do we do when those laws conflict? In today's Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines this question.

Spiritual Goals

Now that we have been saved, what's the next step? Presumably we should be moving forward in our Christian faith, but what does that look like? What are we striving towards? In today's episode of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses these questions.

Leadership In The Church

A good person can do terrible things if they are under the sway of a bad leader. Even a kind but incompetent leader can do some serious damage. This means that our church leadership has to be held to a very high standard, because they are working under the highest stakes imaginable: no less than the future of their congregant's souls. In today's lesson in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers examines the qualifications and instructions left by Paul for Christian leaders.

The Problem Of Hypocrisy

Hypocrisy is one of the sins most discussed in the New Testament, and one of the most abhorrent to Jesus himself. Today in Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers discusses why this issue is so prominently addressed in the Bible, and why it is still a problem today.

The Same Old Tricks

Part of why the bible is so relevant s because Satan used the same tricks on Biblical figures as he does on us today. Today on Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers explores the question of why these tricks are so effective after all this time.

Useful To God

In today's lesson we begin our investigation of the pastoral letters of Paul. These letters were written to instruct new pastors and teachers on how to spread the Gospel and shepherd their flocks.

The Tough Decisions

Sometimes we come to a crossroads in our life, and the only way to move forward is to make a tough decision. In today's episode of Understanding God's Word, Dr. John Akers takes us through a moment in the life of Paul when a Godly man had to face just such a decision.
