This past Tuesday (Sept 27) we learned about the three ways (3) we can learn things about God. Use the chart at the right to help your student review. Ask them to tell you about natural knowledge (2 sources) & revealed knowledge (another way; complete knowledge). The Passages below were used as proof passages in our lesson.
Noah was our "Roman Soldier." Alex & Cameron played the role of prisoners Paul & Silas to help the Roman soldier find out about salvation (Acts 16).
Psalm 19:1 - The heavens declare the glory of God; the skies proclaim the work of his hands. (This is an example of Natural Knowledge from the created world)
Romans 1:20 - For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that people are without excuse.
Romans 2:14,15 - (Indeed, when Gentiles, who do not have the law, do by nature things required by the law, they are a law for themselves, even though they do not have the law. 15 They show that the require-ments of the law are written on their hearts, their consciences also bearing witness, and their thoughts sometimes accusing them and at other times even defending them (This is a second example of Natural Knowledge from the conscience)
Romans 1:32 - Although they know God’s righteous decree that those who do such things deserve death, they not only continue to do these very things but also approve of those who practice them.
Acts 16:25-30 - 25 About midnight Paul and Silas were praying and singing hymns to God, and the other prisoners were listening to them. 26 Suddenly there was such a violent earthquake that the foundations of the prison were shaken. At once all the prison doors flew open, and everyone’s chains came loose. 27 The jailer woke up, and when he saw the prison doors open, he drew his sword and was about to kill himself because he thought the prisoners had escaped. 28 But Paul shouted, “Don’t harm yourself! We are all here!” 29 The jailer called for lights, rushed in and fell trembling before Paul and Silas. 30 He then brought them out and asked, “Sirs, what must I do to be saved?”
2 Timothy 3:15 - 15 and how from infancy you have known the Holy Scriptures, which are able to make you wise for salvation through faith in Christ Jesus." (Revealed Knowledge tells us everything we need to know about our salvation).
