A FIRM FOUNDATION

A FIRM FOUNDATION

MATTHEW 7:24-28

 

EVERY PERSON HAS A SOURCE OF AUTHORITY THAT INFORMS AND SHAPES WHAT IS CALLED A WORLDVIEW.

THIS AUTHORITY INFLUENCES HOW WE THINK, ACT AND LIVE.

 

“THE TRUTH IS THAT A WORLDVIEW IS LIKE COLORED GLASSES; IT COLORS EVERYTHING AT WHICH WE LOOK. IT IS THE GRID THROUGH WHICH ONE VIEWS ALL OF LIFE. AS SUCH IT HELPS FORM OUR THOUGHTS, VALUES AND DECISIONS. THE TRAGEDY IS THAT MOST PEOPLE DO NOT EVEN KNOW WHAT THEIR WORLDVIEW IS, HOW THEY GOT IT, AND HOW IMPORTANT IT IS IN THEIR LIVES.”

NORMAN GEISLER

 

HERE ARE FOUR SOURCES OF AUTHORITY THAT SHAPE AND MOLD OUR DECISION-MAKING:

 

REASON – I THINK

 

EXPERIENCE – I FEEL

 

TRADITION – WE HAVE ALWAYS DONE

 

REVELATION – GOD SAYS IN HIS WORD

 

 

THE COMPARISON

 

  HEARING AND DOING …

 

 

“WISDOM IS THE ABILITY TO SEE LIFE FROM GOD’S PERSPECTIVE AND THEN ACT ACCORDINGLY.” AKIN

 

         A HOUSE CAN REFER TO BUILDING A LIFE,

 

         A HOUSE CAN REFER TO GROWING FAMILIES,

 

         A HOUSE CAN BE LIKENED TO A MINISTRY,

 

         A HOUSE CAN BE LIKENED TO SOCIETY, 

 

 

THE CONTRAST 

 

      WISDOM IS YOUR ABILITY TO APPLY GOD’S TRUTH TO LIFE’S DECISIONS …

Wednesday Night Classes - On Pause for Two Weeks

Since the third Sunday of March 2020, we have done everything at Riverstone that we possibly can, in order to err on the side of caution when it comes to the safety of our people in regard to Covid 19. 

 

Continuing to follow this priority, it is in the best interest of our people, to take at least a two week break from our Wednesday Night Bible Studies.

Because of the close proximity of each other in our classes, this will be best in order to keep everyone safe and healthy.

 

Lord willing, we will pick back up on Wednesday night, February 10.
