  • Welcome to Further Still Women’s Bible Study
  • Pray for the girls daily.
  • Give 60 seconds for participants to record 5 attributes/characteristics of God.
  • Essential Question #1
  • Paul made certain that man understood the reality of being under God’s wrath before he offered them a way of escape from it. A person cannot understand and appreciate the wonder of God’s grace until he knows about the perfect demands of God’s law and cannot understand the fullness of God’s love for him until he understands the fierceness of God’s anger against his sinful failure to perfectly obey that law. He cannot appreciate God’s forgiveness until he knows about the eternal consequences of the sins that require a penalty and need forgiving. God’s wrath against sin NEVER changes. It is a settled determination. He perfectly hates sin just as He perfectly loves us. Psalm 45:7 Hebrews 1:9 We turn the gospel into mere sentimentality when we fail to preach it in its wholeness. Perfect love of righteousness and perfect hate of evil.
  • Universalism=God is too loving and gracious to send anyone to hell, everyone ultimately will go to heavenLiberalism=Inaccurate accounts of the truth of God usually favoring man’s point of view
  • From www.biblos.com we find meanings from the original Greek. Orge—a settled determination against; not momentary

    5. 5. Who incurs the wrath of God?<br />
    6. 6. 18For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who hold the truth in unrighteousness;<br />
    7. 7. How is it fair for God to pour out His wrath against ungodly, unrighteous men (people) if they have never had a chance to hear the gospel?<br />
    8. 8. 19Because that which may be known of God is manifest in them; for God hath shewed it unto them.<br />
    9. 9. How did God show Himself to ungodly, unrighteous men? <br />What specifically, did He show them?<br />
    10. 10. 20For the invisible things of Him from the creation of the world are clearly seen, being understood by the things that are made, even his eternal power and Godhead; so that they are without excuse: <br />
    11. 11. How do we know that they chose to reject God?<br />
    12. 12. 21Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened.<br />
    13. 13. 22Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, <br />23And changed the glory of the uncorruptible God into an image made like to corruptible man, and to birds, and fourfooted beasts, and creeping things. <br />
    14. 14. What were the results of their<br /> rejection of God?<br />
    15. 15. 24Wherefore God also gave them up to uncleanness through the lusts of their own hearts, to dishonour their own bodies between themselves:<br />
    16. 16. How did this “uncleanness” affect their belief systems?<br />
    17. 17. 25Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen. <br />
