Pastor Michael talks about the history of the Word of Faith movement and its contributions to what we now call the “Prosperity Gospel.”
This week Pastor Clint teaches the church’s historic struggle to balance its understanding of free grace and moral expectation. This tension can be seen throughout the scriptures themselves, through the Reformation, and even in our lives today.
In this lecture, Pastor Clint teaches about the early church heresies surrounding the Trinity, including the significant church councils that addressed them, as well as some of the dramatic stories that punctuated them. In addition, he teaches about the “Gnostics” who grew up at around the same time of the church and who caused significant disputes within the Christian community about the identity and meaning of Jesus Christ.
