The term Babylon is synonymous with a “pagan” culture, or non-Christian territory. Babylon in the O.T. was considered the enemy, the people who defeated the Israelites and made them exiles in a strange and foreign land that was not their home. In the same way, Christian believers who desire to live as children of God are feeling the effects of living in a changing post-Christian, even anti-Christian America.
FAITH OAKVILLE: Have you observed it? People, maybe even people close to you or who used to be closed to you, have changed. Anger, rage, bitterness, fear, anxiety, grief, and a host of other emotional health issues have increased to levels that have people shaking their heads in confusion. And Christians haven’t been immune. What is wrong? What is wrong with us? In this series titled It's Time for a Check-Up, we are taking time to do some evaluation and understand how the good news of the Gospel can break through to bring healing.
FAITH COLUMBIA: One book in the New Testament is credited for turning the soul of Augustine “upside-down.” The same book warmed the heart of John Wesley towards conversion. The very same book also turned a German monk, Martin Luther, from searching for assurance of his salvation to confidently declaring, “When I understood this text, the doors of paradise swung open, and I walked through.” This powerful, life-changing and profound book has been nicknamed “The Gospel According to Paul” but is better known as simply the book of Romans. Together we’re going to dig deep into Romans and mine out this beautiful letter that shows us the power and beauty of the Good News for all people. In this first series of three over the next couple years, we’ll focus on the gravity of sin and the depth of our declared righteousness in Jesus.
This series focuses on relationships, the one area of our lives that provides the most joy or heartache. Whether you’re single or married, relationships can be difficult. In this series, our focus will be on all types of relationships: those within a marriage, in singleness, and in friendships. We’ll also discuss what it means to fight fairly and communicate effectively in relationships. Ephesians 5 serves as a foundational chapter for this series.
