What Is a Disciple-Making Movement?

A Little Lesson

Read the transcript of this video below.

We know that Jesus wants us to make disciples. He told His disciples, “Go make disciples. Teach them to obey all that I’ve commanded you.” Therefore, one of the things that Jesus’ disciples taught their disciples was to go make disciples, teaching them to obey all that Jesus commanded. It’s a generational discipleship commandment. Every Christian should be involved in the making of disciples, which of course starts with sharing the gospel and leading people to Christ and then helping them grow in Christ.

If you’re a regular viewer of Little Lessons, you may be thinking that you’ve already seen this particular episode. That’s because I did record a Little Lesson with a similar title not long ago.

What About the Rapture? Are There Two Comings of Jesus?

A Little Lesson

Read the transcript of this video below.

Over the last couple of lessons we talked about near-death experiences. And perhaps related to that is a question that has been posed by another one of our beloved viewers about the rapture. Specifically, he’s questioning whether or not the common understanding of the rapture within the American church is biblically accurate. I would have to say that, in my understanding, there is a lot of misunderstanding about the coming of Jesus Christ and the rapture of the church.

A Little Lesson

Read the transcript of this video below.

If you’re a regular reader you know that in past Little Lessons, every once in a while, I have addressed what is known as the marriage permanence doctrine.

Marriage permanence

And this is a doctrine that focuses on a few verses in the New Testament that have lead some to believe and to promote the idea that if you’re married, but you’ve been previously married at any time in the past in your life, you’re in an immoral, adulterous relationship and you should divorce your current spouse. Regardless of how long you’ve been married, regardless of how many children you might have by that spouse.
