1 John – Review and Resources
BY MAX FERNANDEZ
Theory, Critical Theory, Standpoint Theory, Expressive Individualism, and Cancel Culture are all phrases that we continue to hear through news outlets and pop culture media. These terms are also being used within church congregations.
Last year at Grace Baptist Church, we completed the epistle of 1 John; and there were several applications made from 1 John regarding these phrases and philosophies. Below you will find the links to videos and transcripts from the messages.
In addition, here are a couple of resources that may help you in your learning:
