A Crumbling Culture: Cause and Consequences
How close is America to a spiritual and moral collapse? Can the church stop the rapid deterioration of our culture? In this study, the Apostle Paul gives a powerful and profound principle that is present in the life of every individual and every culture. This section gives us valuable insights in vaulting our own personal lives as well as the world we live in. But when God’s truth is rejected, there are two inevitable results, to which there are no exceptions.
One emphasis of this series in Acts is on the working of the Holy Spirit in the lives of believers today. Each and every believer is anointed by the Spirit at the moment of regeneration. Part of our being set apart as “believer-priests” is our service for Christ within the Body of Christ. Each has been given an ability to serve effectively as part of our anointing. This includes our reception of spiritual gifts. This study and the three to follow deal with the NT discussion of spiritual gifts.
These sessions are excerpts from the study on the Book of Acts podcasts that deal specifically with spiritual gifts.
