Here is a brief overview of what we teach in the School of Restoration. The information provided is taken from the Table of Contents of our training literature. Each student is required to complete the work in all 16 chapters to graduate. The course requires approximately 6 months to complete.
Chapter 1 Confusion in the Creation (Understanding how we were created in the image of God) – We study the Spirit, Soul, and Body to learn why there is such a battle wanting to do right and wanting to not do right at the same time. “For the flesh lusteth against the Spirit, and the Spirit against the flesh: and these are contrary the one to the other: so that ye cannot do the things that ye would.” Gal 5:1
Chapter 2 Understanding Biblical Salvation– It is only Jesus that sets free and changes a life not a program.
Chapter 3 For We Wrestle (Spiritual Warfare) – Dealing with our thoughts.
We look at the three lies of Satan:
He will lie to you about who God is:
God is mean
God is hateful
God is not a loving God
God will not forgive you
God does not care about you
And many more…
He will lie to you about who you are:
You are no good
Others are better than you
You are a failure
God would never use you
There are better people than you
You blew it with God
You will never change
And many more..
He will lie to you about who others are:
People don’t care about you
People are talking about you
People are laughing at you
They will make fun of you
No one really cares
You are all alone
And many more…
