   How Do We Use Evidence? Part 2
   1 Peter 3:15
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 23, 2014
In Lesson 4, “Defending the Truth, Part 1,” we defined truth as “an observation we make about what is real.” Our observations can be expressed in statements called “propositions,” which can be judged true or false based on whether or not they correspond to reality. We do not make something true. Our task is merely to recognize what is true and what is not.

   How Do We Know What Is True?
   2 Corinthians 4:3-5; 1 Peter 3:15; Acts 22:1
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 9, 2014
In Lesson 3, “Contending for the Truth,” we saw that being faithful to truth is not merely believing truth for ourselves. It is standing for truth, which the apostle Paul compares to laying siege to a city (2 Corinthians 4:3–5). Furthermore, this battle is not won in the flesh, but through the power of God. Yet as we have opportunity to stand for truth, we will find ourselves in contradiction with those who oppose the truth, and we must be ready to “give an answer” for the “reason” of our hope (1 Peter 3:15). This series of lessons is designed to prepare you for that moment.

   Contending for the Truth
   2 Corinthians 10:3-5
Wednesday Evening Service,  July 2, 2014
Faithfulness to truth is not merely personal faithfulness to do what God wants. In order to remain faithful to truth, we must also stand for the truth—we must stand up for the truth: being willing to engage others. The world calls us to “coexist,” but we must be ready to “contradict.”

   Facing Temptation Like Jesus Did
   Matthew 4:1-11
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 11, 2014
Matthew portrays Jesus as the True Israel. Jesus enters Egypt and God calls him out again (Matt 2:15); he passes through water (Matt 3:13–17); and enters the wilderness where he is tempted 40 days (Matt 4:1–11). Our focus is on Jesus’ time of temptation. Just as the serpent tempted Eve in the lush garden of Eden, and just as the nation of Israel was tempted to disobey God in the wilderness, so Satan appears to tempt the Lord Jesus. Only, where Adam and Eve and later Israel gave into the temptation, Jesus resisted and remained sinless. What can we learn from Jesus’ experience in the wilderness that teaches us to face temptation like he did? There are three essential lessons.

   Why We Turn from the Truth to Embrace Falsehood – Part 2
   2 Corinthians 2:11; John 8:44; Genesis 3:1-5; Matthew 4:1-11
Wednesday Evening Service,  June 4, 2014
If we would learn to be faithful to the truth of God’s Word, then we must first learn why we would ever allow ourselves to turn to error in the first place. This lesson will take us into the garden in Eden to examine the first instance of a turn to error. We will then briefly survey the course of human history since the garden, littered with examples of this same turning from truth, repetitions of the Fall. In our journey, we will discover that there are two basic answers to the question, Why do we turn from truth?

   Introduction: Principles of Satan's Attacks
   Genesis 3:1, Paul's Epistles
Wednesday Evening Service,  May 14, 2014
The attack on truth can be summarized in Satan’s challenge to Eve in Gen 3:1, “Did God actually say?” For the first time, Eve was confronted with the question of whether God spoke the truth, or whether he meant something else instead, or whether he had the authority to tell Eve what to do. Furthermore, Eve was introduced to the false idea that there is more than one version of the truth. In this introductory session we survey what this same attack looked like in the first churches and identify some foundational principles of Satan’s attacks.
