Course Description

Becoming What God Intended: Applications
The purpose of this course is to show how the foundational truths and the integrational truths of the previous courses work themselves out in specific applications. These applications are extensive: to our walk in this world, to our personal life goal and our goal in the church, and our goal of personal mastery of our inner life.
1. Replication of Christ's Life
This lecture reviews the pattern of Christ's life and shows that the same pattern is expected of our lives.
2. Paul's Goals in Philippians
   a. Paul had a corporate goal for the Christians in Philippi, that is they would serve one another as Christ who is God served them.
   b. Paul had a personal goal in Philippians 3 that he would not be a legalist or rely on his own moral efforts instead he would rely on the life of Christ within him to please God.
3. Paul the Apostle and Addiction
Paul in his letter to the Corinthians addresses the issue of addiction (primarily sexual addiction), and shows how the core values introduced in the Foundations Course apply to this area of life.
4. The Holy Spirit and Addiction
Paul the Apostle in Galatians 5 shows how the ministry of the Holy Spirit in the believer's life addresses the issues of temptation, compulsion, and addiction.
