Convention Seminar Reminder

by Theological Commission

Perhaps you’ve heard someone say lately, “I’m just wired that way.” These types of expressions fill our everyday vernacular, but we often don’t think of the troubling implications they may have.

In the last several decades, genetics has become a profound new scientific frontier. This has impacted everything from health care to criminal justice, and yes, even theology.

In Cincinnati, the Theological Commission hopes to help pastors, teachers, and laymen better understand the implications of the genetic revolution. Dr. Ian Hawkins will be giving our annual seminar entitled: “Genes Made Me Do it! The Implications of the Genetic Revolution for Adam and Eve, Original Sin, and Free Will.”

Dr. Hawkins will present this on Monday, July 22 from 2-3:30pm in DECC262. Don’t miss this opportunity to get informed on this crucial and wide-ranging subject.

Discipleship in Biblical, Theological, and Pastoral Perspective

by Theological Commission

At last week’s National Association meeting in Grand Rapids, the Commission for Theological Integrity was pleased to sponsor our annual Convention seminar on the subject of discipleship. The subject was of great interest to many, which was evidenced by the large turnout. Dr. Robert Picirilli and Reverend Michael Locklear both gave substantial presentations which we are now making available to followers of the Commission blog.

You may also purchase a copy of Picirilli’s Discipleship: The Expression of Saving Faith (Randall House, 2013) by clicking here. Next Tuesday, Reverend Locklear’s presentation on the pastoral dimensions of discipleship will be available.
