Cross Vision: How the crucifixion of Jesus makes sense of Old Testament violence. • Thursday, Jan. 11 @ 6:30–8:30pm • The Meeting Place, TMH Carlisle
Taught by: Steve Dancause, Venue Pastor & Trevor Spencer, Former Pastor
With so much violence in the world and heartbreaking loss appearing regularly on your newsfeed, how do we explain God commanding violence and disturbing behavior (genocide, etc.) in the Old Testament?  How does the Old Testament make sense when it seems opposite to the character and teachings of Jesus? Together, let's explore the problem and discover how most proposed solutions don't quite satisfy. We will look at a solution based on the cross and unpack the book, The Crucifixion of the Warrior God by Greg Boyd. 

What the Bible REALLY Says About Hell • Monday, Jan. 22 @ 6:30-8pm • Auditorium, TMH Carlisle
Taught by: Josh Crain, Senior Pastor
The Christian concept of Hell is a contentious one: churches and denominations have disagreed about what hell is and how one might end up there since very early on in the Christian tradition. But what does the Bible actually say about hell? How did Jesus think and talk about hell? What did the early church have to say about hell? And how do the answers to these questions impact the way we live out our faith in modern-day America?
