Lessons, Sermons,and Essays: How not to write.

Hi,

On this page you will find lessons I have taught, essays I have written, and sermons I have preached.

Some of them are completed and some are not. Many were written while I was at seminary, and are written
to that standard and requirement. In such cases some things have been left out in order to meet maximum word limits etc.

Torah, or not Torah?

This was a research paper that I did in my last
year of seminary. It only got me a C, but thats a pass right?
🙂 Anyway, its about the Apostle Paul, and whether he sees the
law as done away with (discontinued), or not (continued). The
reason I wanted to write on this was because of some debates I
had been having with some theologians of the dispensational variety,
who claim the Law is discontinuous. I did not get to cover every
little aspect of Paul’s thought, but covered what I thought were
the major points around which the issue hangs.

The breakdown of relationships
in Gen 3,4,6

This was a sermon/lesson I taught at I.C.C. in Highland
Park, New Zealand. It is basically about the breakdown of relationships
and boundaries in the first 11 chapters of Genesis. It focuses
on 3, 4, and 6 though. It was an oppotunity to pick up on one
of the themes I had been teaching on in “the flood”,
“what happened to me”, and “who am I?”.

The Flood

This was a lesson I taught at Church. It is done
in a ‘comment’ style rather than an essay style.

Heaven

This was a lesson I taught at CCC Howick in May 2002

The Law

This is a lesson I taught a CCC Howick May 2002

Matt 7:21-23

This was a lesson I taught at CCC Howick in June 2002Who are the people who cry ‘Lord Lord’ and yet are not known by Christ?

Babel and Revelations

This was a lesson I taught at CCC Howick in June 2002

Is there such thing as a lukewarm Christian?

I argue that there is no such thing.

Effective Prayer

This was a lesson I taught at CCC Howick in 2002, and at ICC
in Jan 2003

Effective Prayer. Why do we pray? Who should we pray to?

These questions answered.

Angels

This was a lesson I taught at Church and at ICC.

Its really just a basic lesson who and what Angels are.
