The New Creation and the Christian Life

tgpblogheader_NewCreation

The events leading up to the new creation are the subject of much speculation—and sometimes disagreement—among Christians. With all the questions circumstances, timelines, meanings of the "millennium", it's easy for us to think that what happens in the end doesn’t matter.

The Goal of Chronological Bible Study in Student Ministry

We have all heard it said that we live in an unprecedented time where biblical illiteracy is at an all-time high. Such claims are not exaggerated in the least bit, especially when it comes to the younger generations. And for many, this biblical illiteracy extends far beyond the lack of ability to recognize familiar passages in the Bible. For the majority of students, this biblical illiteracy extends even to not being familiar with the general storyline of the Bible, or with being able to ... [Reading More]

Why Use a Leader Pack When Leading Middle and High School Students?

We have all heard teachers and educators say that there are different styles of learning. Some folks are more bent toward an auditory approach to learning, being able to process information by just listening to a lecture or sermon. Some have a stronger leaning towards a visual approach, being able to better grasp the material if they can just see it displayed in some form or fashion. And yet there are still others who would be more inclined to a kinesthetic (hands on) approach to learning, where ... [Reading More]

Sometimes we are the perpetrators; sometimes we are the victims; we can even be the passive bystanders. But if we believe that every human being is created in the image of God (Gen. 1:27), then there is inherent value in ... [Reading More]
