Seminars on contemporary issues
"[God's] divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence . . ." (2 Peter 1:3).
God has not left his people without guidance in every area of life. Although the Bible is not a science textbook, its message speaks to the deep underlying values that can guide decisions about scientific matters. In GBU, Seminars on contemporary issues are designed to help participants develop biblical perspective on issues we face on a daily basis so that our members can develop effective ways to communicate biblical morality to our secular culture.
Too often, Christians have passed off their sociological preferences on contemporary issues instead of doing proper biblical exegesis. Through seminars on contemporary issues we seek to nurture participants into a generation who exercises a prophetic voice seeking to be salt and light (Matt. 5:13-16), not by just matching one Bible verse with a problem, rather by studying the Bible Inductively to carefully discern the commands, principles, and virtues that apply in a particular context.
Seminars on contemporary issues cover a broad range of topics such as: Time management, Biblical view on marriage, Transformative leadership, social media, unit and reconciliation, prosperity gospel, truth about sex, the gospel of grace, Christian in community development, etc.
