Liberal What is it?
  • not literal or strict LOOSE BROAD-MINDED
    especially not bound by authoritarianism,
    orthodoxy, or traditional forms(M-Webster
    Online Dictionary)
  • Liberalism takes a loose construction on law, to
    provide the highest level of freedom.

3
Liberalism Minimizes
  • Absolute TruthJn. 831-32
  • Need For ObedienceMt. 721 Jn. 1514
  • Reality of Sin1 Jn. 34

4
Liberalism Maximizes
  • SelfJudges 2125
  • Feelings1 Kings 1233
  • RationalizationMatt. 197-9

5
Postmodern Truth
  • Truth is relative, not fixed or absolute
    subjective, not objective.
  • Truth is not discovered ? but constructed.
  • One can never know something without question.
  • What is true for one person may not be true for
    another.

6
Postmodern Truth
  • One so-called truth is as valid as another.
  • Individuals and cultures construct truths that
    work for them.
  • In postmodernism spin is everything. Truth is
    not knowable, at least not absolutely knowable.

2 Timothy 42-4
preach the WORD be ready in season and out of
season reprove, rebuke, exhort, with great
patience and instruction. For the time will come
when they will not endure SOUND DOCTRINE but
wanting to have their ears tickled, they will
accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance
to their own desires, and will turn away their
ears from the truth and will turn aside to
myths. 
11
Bible Hermeneutics
1 Pet. 411 If anyone speaks, let him speak as
the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him
do it as with the ability which God supplies,
that in all things God may be glorified through
Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the
dominion forever and ever. Amen.
12
Bible Hermeneutics
1 Cor. 46 Now these things, brethren, I have
figuratively applied to myself and Apollos for
your sakes, so that in us you may learn not to
exceed what is written, so that no one of you
will become arrogant in behalf of one against
the other.
13
Bible Hermeneutics
1 Tim. 63-4 If anyone advocates a different
doctrine and does not agree with sound words,
those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the
doctrine conforming to godliness, he is
conceited and understands nothing.
14
A New Hermeneutic
Is the activity or methodology under
contemplation consistent with the person and
work of Jesus Christ? If we do this, will the
people who see it think we reveal Christ? Will
we be doing what people would expect to see
Christ doing in this situation? (Rubel
Shelly Randall J. Harris, The Second
Incarnation, p. 19)
15
A New Hermeneutic
This principle has broad consequences for
ecclesiology. It says, for example, that the
church need not have either explicit mandate or
permission for everything it wishes to do. The
church may confidently ground its activities of
compassion and service in the character of its
head. (Ibid., p. 29)
16
APOSTOLIC AUTHORITY
  • THE FOUNDATION OF RESTORATION THINKING

1 Pet. 411 If anyone speaks, let him speak as
the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him
do it as with the ability which God supplies,
that in all things God may be glorified through
Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the
dominion forever and ever. Amen.
17
The Apostolic Commission
  • Acts 11-2 The first account I composed,
    Theophilus, about all that Jesus began to do and
    teach, until the day when He was taken up to
    heaven, after He had by the Holy Spirit given
    orders to the apostles whom He had chosen.

18
Apostolic Credentials
  • a?p?st????
  • ap-os-tol-os
  • A delegate specifically an ambassador of the
    Gospel officially a commissioner of Christ
    (apostle), (with miraculous powers) - apostle,
    messenger, he that is sent.

19
The Importance of Pauls Apostolic Credentials
  • 1 Cor. 91 Am I not free? Am I not an apostle?
    Have I not seen Jesus our Lord? Are you not my
    work in the Lord?

20
The Importance of Pauls Apostolic Credentials
2 Cor. 1211-12 I have become a fool in
boasting you have compelled me. For I ought to
have been commended by you for in nothing was I
behind the most eminent apostles, though I am
nothing. Truly the signs of an apostle were
accomplished among you with all perseverance, in
signs and wonders and mighty deeds.
21
The Importance of Pauls Apostolic Credentials
2 Cor. 1113 For such are false apostles,
deceitful workers, transforming themselves into
apostles of Christ.
22
APOSTOLIC AUTHORITY
  • 1. THE APOSTLES HAD THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK FOR GOD

23
The Order of Revelation
  • Eph. 33-5 how that by revelation He made
    known to me the mystery (as I have briefly
    written already, by which, when you read, you may
    understand my knowledge in the mystery of
    Christ), which in other ages was not made known
    to the sons of men, as it has now been revealed
    by the Spirit to His holy apostles and prophets

24
The Order of Revelation
  • Heb. 21-4 Therefore we must give the more
    earnest heed to the things we have heard, lest we
    drift away. For if the word spoken through angels
    proved steadfast, and every transgression and
    disobedience received a just reward, how shall we
    escape if we neglect so great a salvation, which
    at the first began to be spoken by the Lord, and
    was confirmed to us by those who heard Him, God
    also bearing witness both with signs and wonders,
    with various miracles, and gifts of the Holy
    Spirit, according to His own will?

25
The Order of Revelation
  • 2 Pet. 31-2 Beloved, I now write to you this
    second epistle (in both of which I stir up your
    pure minds by way of reminder), that you may be
    mindful of the words which were spoken before by
    the holy prophets, and of the commandment of us,
    the apostles of the Lord and Savior.

26
APOSTOLIC AUTHORITY
  • 1. THE APOSTLES HAD THE AUTHORITY TO SPEAK FOR
    GOD
  • 2. THE APOSTOLIC TEACHING WAS FOLLOWED

27
Apostles Bound Gods Will
  • Matt. 1618-19 I also say to you that you are
    Peter, and upon this rock I will build My church
    and the gates of Hades will not overpower it. I
    will give you the keys of the kingdom of heaven
    and whatever you bind on earth shall have been
    bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth
    shall have been loosed in heaven.

Matt. 1818 Truly I say to you, whatever you
bind on earth shall have been bound in heaven
and whatever you loose on earth shall have been
loosed in heaven.
28
Apostles Revealed The Gospel
  • Acts 237-42 Now when they heard this, they
    were cut to the heart, and said to Peter and the
    rest of the apostles, Men and brethren, what
    shall we do? Then Peter said to them, Repent,
    and let every one of you be baptized in the name
    of Jesus Christ for the remission of sins and
    you shall receive the gift of the Holy Spirit.
    Then those who gladly received his word were
    baptized and that day about three thousand souls
    were added to them. And they continued
    steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and
    fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in
    prayers.

30
Apostolic Foundationof the Church
  • Eph. 219-20 Now, therefore, you are no longer
    strangers and foreigners, but fellow citizens
    with the saints and members of the household of
    God, having been built on the foundation of the
    apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ Himself being
    the chief cornerstone.

31
Setting the Churches in Order
  • Tit. 11-3 Paul, a bondservant of God and an
    apostle of Jesus Christ, according to the faith
    of Gods elect and the acknowledgment of the
    truth which accords with godliness, in hope of
    eternal life which God, who cannot lie, promised
    before time began, but has in due time manifested
    His word through preaching, which was committed
    to me according to the commandment of God our
    Savior. For this reason I left you in Crete,
    that you should set in order the things that are
    lacking.

32
Setting the Churches in Order
  • 1 Tim. 314-15 These things I write to you,
    though I hope to come to you shortly but if I am
    delayed, I write so that you may know how you
    ought to conduct yourself in the house of God,
    which is the church of the living God, the pillar
    and ground of the truth.

34
The Continuing Significance of Apostolic Authority
  • 2 Tim. 22 And the things that you have heard
    from me among many witnesses, commit these to
    faithful men who will be able to teach others
    also.

35
The Continuing Significance of Apostolic Authority
  • Jude 117-19 But you, beloved, remember the
    words which were spoken before by the apostles of
    our Lord Jesus Christ how they told you that
    there would be mockers in the last time who would
    walk according to their own ungodly lusts. These
    are sensual persons, who cause divisions, not
    having the Spirit.

36
The Continuing Significance of Apostolic Authority
  • 2 Tim. 113 Hold fast the pattern of sound
    words which you have heard from me, in faith and
    love which are in Christ Jesus.

37
The Continuing Significance of Apostolic Authority
  • 1Tim. 63-4 If anyone advocates a different
    doctrine and does not agree with sound words,
    those of our Lord Jesus Christ, and with the
    doctrine conforming to godliness, he is
    conceited and understands nothing.

I Clement (circa 95 AD)
  • 1Clem 71-2 - These things, dearly beloved, we
    write, not only as admonishing you, but also as
    putting ourselves in remembrance. For we are in
    the same lists, and the same contest awaits us.
    Wherefore let us forsake idle and vain thoughts
    and let us conform to the glorious and venerable
    rule which hath been handed down to us and let
    us see what is good and what is pleasant and what
    is acceptable in the sight of Him that made us.

40
I Clement (circa 95 AD)
  • 1Clem. 421-2 The Apostles received the Gospel
    for us from the Lord Jesus Christ Jesus Christ
    was sent forth from God. So then Christ is from
    God, and the Apostles are from Christ. Both
    therefore came of the will of God in the
    appointed order.
