In the beginning, God created humanity "very good." What does that mean? And why does it matter to hold fast to this belief in the face of modern myths and ancient errors which say human nature was flawed from the start? Tonight, we'll consider all these questions and how they connect to Christ.
We conclude our study of Ecclesiastes with why God gives biblical books of wisdom. As our Shepherd, he imparts the "words of the wise" to guide and goad his sheep on secure paths. Tonight, the Spirit beckons you to beware worldly philosophy. Instead, he urges you to learn the art of living at Christ’s faithful feet.
