School of Practical Christianity

For the Saints in Moscow and Pullman

How many of you think in terms of the following scriptures, or how many would like to think this way?

“You must aim to be saintly and righteous, filled with faith and love, patient and gentle.” (I Timothy 6:12)

“Don’t let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith, and in purity.” (I Timothy 4:12)

“Not that I have obtained all this or have already been made perfect, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me.” (Philippians 3:12)

“Rejoice in the Lord always, again I say rejoice.” (Philippians 4:4)

“In everything give thanks for this is the will of God for you in Christ Jesus.” (I Thessalonians 5:18)

“Do everything without complaining or arguing.” (Philippians 2:14)

“Love one another deeply.” (I Peter 1:22)

“But just as He who called you is holy, so be holy in all you do; for it is written: ‘Be holy in all you do.’” (2 Timothy 3:16)

We are thinking of re-starting the school of Practical Christianity. If so, it will not be as demanding as before (3 hours / 5 days a week for a semester), but it will be as qualitative. It will be free, not tests, no assignments, no grades, no academic pre-requisites, and of course no credit.

The prerequisite: You want to be like Jesus
The assignment: You believe and obey what you learn.
There will be a commitment to attend.

If you want to think like the scriptures quoted and would like the school, please let me know. It would be one two hour session a week for six weeks.

“Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead.” (I Peter 1:3)
