TH104 Introducing Bible Doctrine IV: The Church and Last Things

not enough ratings
Why was the Church established after the resurrection of Jesus? What is its future, and the future of all humanity? Drs. Carl Sanders and Ronn Johnson introduce students to the theological discussion of the institution of the Church and the biblical doctrine of eschatology (“end times”). Attention is focused on the nature of the Church, systems of church government, church rites (baptism, Lord’s Supper), the relationship of the Church to social issues, and how doctrinal thinking about the Church affects one’s theology of end times. Various views on prophetic interpretation, a rapture, and millennialism are presented, as well as an extended discussion on how the two major theological approaches (dispensationalism, covenant theology) function and disagree.
