Vineyard Institute

This quarter: “Ancient and Contemporary Gnosticism” (Derek Morphew)

This course is designed to equip Christian leaders to effectively pastor Christians who have been influenced or affected by Gnosticism. To do this, what is required is sufficient understanding of Gnosticism to be able to discern it in beliefs and behaviors, to show how the New Testament refutes it, and to pastor individuals through to a healthy form of personal spirituality.

Fridays @ 7:30—9:30pm, Apr 9th-May 28th

$150, Zoom class

Seeking the LORD is not simply one option that may be chosen from a menu of alternatives. God is not in competition with anyone or anything. The absence of good advice is not alternatives – it is no advice at all. God’s instruction lets us know the way of wisdom – the criteria for making good life choices. If we choose to ignore His instructions, our choices will lead to consequences we do not really want. But the more closely we follow His way, the better our consequences will be.
