The End Times Made Simple

March 6-8 2009

Guest Speaker: Samuel E. Waldron

How Could Everybody Be So Wrong About Biblical Prophecy?

Rapture? Pre-Trib? Post-Trib? Millennium? Confused? You should be! In today's Evangelical Christian world, eschatology -- or the study of the "Last Things" -- has been turned into a sort of pseudo-science with a plethora of authors claiming to know exactly the scenario of events that are to take place just prior to the Lord Jesus Christ's return. Piece by piece, Samuel Waldron strips away years of false teaching and faulty exegesis thrust upon the church to reveal what the Bible, in its own simple but profound way, says about what will happen at the end of this present age.

Samuel Waldron is a full-time Pastor/Teacher of Heritage Baptist Church in Owensboro, Kentucky; jointly affiliated with the Southern Baptist Convention and the Association of Reformed Baptist Churches of America. He also serves as Professor of Systematic Theology at the Midwest Center for Theological Studies.

Trusting God: Even When Life Hurts

March 28-29, 2008

Guest Speaker Jerry Bridges

Adversity is hard to endure, and can even be harder to understand. It's easy to trust God when everything's going your way. But what about when things go wrong? Have you ever asked yourself the following questions:

  • If God were really in control, why has God allowed this situation to happen?
  • Why does God allow horrible things to happen to people and nations?
  • Is anyone really in charge?
  • If God is loving, powerful and wise, why am I in this mess?
  • Is God punishing me by allowing these circumstances in my life? What have I done wrong?
  • Can I really trust God with my life and my future?
  • Can God use adversity to accomplish good in my life and in the lives of others?

If you have a desire to understand God's Sovereign hand in this world and to trust Him more in every situation, you will not want to miss this seminar.

The speaker is Jerry Bridges, author of books such as The Pursuit of Holiness, Trusting God, The Practice of Godliness, The Joy of Fearing God, Transforming Grace, and The Discipline of Grace.
