In today’s discussion, Dr. Nunnally emphasizes the Biblical prescription for faith: “It’s vital for believers to remember God’s covenantal faithfulness — what He’s done in the past; we need to recall “redemptive history.”
In this session we take up the challenge of Christian living. Our culture is no longer unified by by the social consensus that defined the 1950s. Modern society is fractured by many — often competitive — points-of view. In this respect, our world closely resembles the world at the time of the first Christian communities. This explains why Paul’s words to the believers in his day hold special significance to the modern church.
Continuing our exploration of the Romans-Psalms connection, today’s session takes up the fairly curious freedom that believers have to question God. Citing examples from both Old and New Testaments, Dr. Nunnally reminds us that God is “big enough to take on whatever question we pose.” Even Christ, in Matthew 27, questioned the Heavenly Father.
