R2D2 IS NOT THE HERO
R2D2 is loved by all, but we cannot
pretend the Star Wars saga centers on our favorite robot. We did not
write Star Wars,
so neither can we redefine the central plot of the saga. George
Lucas got determine the plot. In similar fashion, perhaps we have
mistaken the central plot and central conflict of the Bible to be the salvation of souls.
The attached 16 minute audio is the first in a three part presentation
given April 24th of 2013 to a large group of disciplemakers.
Be forewarned: these presentations were designed to equip serious students of the Word, not to entice a disinterested crowd. So the pace is fast, and many points are purposely left unconnected in order to entice listeners into personally investigating each topic. The primary passages referenced or quoted include:
- Isaiah 14:12-15
- Ezekiel 28:12-18
- Job 1:6-11 / Job 2:1-6
- Genesis 1:28; 2:15, 20
- Genesis 3:1-15 / Genesis 22:18 / Galatians 3:16
- John 12:23-33 / 1John 3:8-9 / Colossians 2:15
- Luke 10:18b-20 / Col 1:24 / Php 3:10 / Rom 16:20 / Eph 1:23 / Rev 12:11
- Psalm 2
The subsequent presentations should be uploaded here by the end of this week. Thanks for listening, and please...
