We are in the last days as described in the Bible and people will not and do not like to study the Bible or obey it. Paul said it this way to Timothy: "For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;" (2 Timothy 4:3). On top of this truth is the complication that we are also inundated with virtually thousands of websites, books, videos, magazines and other media teaching false doctrine. 1 Timothy 6:20-21a: "O Timothy, keep that which is committed to thy trust, avoiding profane
Our next study series in Sunday School will be on the Book of Genesis. The world calls this book a myth because they can't verify many of the events and characters in the book (and that's when they are being nice!). But what will we find?

falsely so called: Which some professing have erred concerning the faith." In Ephesians 4:14 we read: "That we

and
cunning craftiness, whereby they lie in wait to deceive;".
So what do we see? Thousands of opinions, false teachings, deception, and generally a serious falling away from the truth as provided to us in the Bible. There are even those who outright reject teachings of Scripture (sound doctrine), claiming it is irrelevant, cruel, and more.
Yet, how can the serious student of the Bible navigate through all the clutter and religious refuse that is prevalent today and find solid godly doctrine? A quick glance at the concordance reveals that the warnings against false doctrines and deception more than double the number of references to seek and learn sound doctrine.
OK, you've decided, I'll do that - How? We at Elkmont Baptist Church are starting a journey through the Scriptures to discover first how to recognize sound doctrine and then some of the more important doctrines of the Bible. One hint: If man has to wrap a Biblical teaching with his own thoughts and opinions and provide an extensive explanation - it simply isn't sound doctrine! These are attempts to sleight of hand, craftiness we are warned about.
Come join us as we study the Scriptures and discover first what sound doctrine is and then many of those teachings of Christ we can fully depend on as sound!

  1. Many Bible "mega themes" are started in Genesis - such as how God created the universe and the earth and in what order - and why. We are introduced to sin and man's disobedience to God as well as God's promise to send a Savior. And many more!
  2. We will be introduced to many important truths that God wants us to understand: our need for modesty and clothing, God's instruction for marriage, the important of family, the concept of covenants, the consequences of sin, and others.
  3. We will learn about the pre-flood world and the post-flood worlds and all of the changes that occurred and how they have affected us.
  4. We will examine a large number of evidences that not only point to proof that the world-wide flood known as Noah's Flood did indeed occur, but evidences that also point to a young earth.
  5. Questions will be answered like:
Genesis means "Beginnings." One of the discoveries we will find very early in the book is that Jesus Christ Himself was deeply involved in the creation, and that the name of God used in Genesis is Elohim, a plural name (three or more in Hebrew) and yet meaning a single entity (can you say Trinity?). We hope you will join us for this adventure!
