Christian History Series #6: The Continental Divide (Part 2)

Why is the church so fractured? Christianity today is known by its various denominations and groups, but that hasn’t always been the case. In this lecture, Lenny explains how both political division within Christian hierarchy and the rise of Islam and the Crusaders helped cleave the Christian world in two. He also examines the dangers that exist when faith becomes more focused on formality than function.

Christian History Series #5: He Came In through the Bathroom Window (Part 6)

Most Christians have heard about the twelve ragtag followers Jesus picked out to be his disciples. But many don’t know about those he saved in the subsequent centuries. In this fifth installment of our class, Lenny looks at two key figures who both had a tremendous impact in shaping Christian thought. Athanasius was a staunch defender of the Trinity, even though he faced decades of resistance and persecution. Augustine went from a carnal pagan to a cultist to one of the most influential thinkers in all Christendom—one whose arguments even shut down the New Atheists today.

Christian History Series #4: The Most Interesting Man in the World (Part 6)

What beliefs define a true Christian? That was a key question after Constantine barred Christian persecution, lifting them from prisons to palaces. In the fourth and fifth centuries, the key questions of the faith centered around the divinity and humanity of Jesus. Was he God like God the Father or a created man? How did that work out specifically? In this part of our lecture series, we will explore how the early church affirmed Jesus’s full humanity as well as his full divinity and why these things are crucial even for us today.

Christian History Series #3: The Canon Heard Round the World (Part 6)

Today, we hear a lot about the so-called “lost books” of the Bible. The charge is made that somehow the church hand-selected only those documents that would keep them in power and other equally valid texts were ignored. Is this true? In our third lecture series, Lenny looks at how the Bible canon developed, why there are good reasons to leave others out, and just how we know these 66 books are truly the word of God.

Christian History Series #2: Are We Living in the Matrix? (Part 6)

As Christianity gained more and more adherents in the second and third centuries, another threat rose against it. This time, instead of persecuting from without, new cults sprang up threatening to corrupt it from within. The most prevalent of these were the various forms of Gnosticism, each of which denied the reality of the physical world and held up the spiritual as a higher level of being. In this session, Lenny will discuss the tenets of Gnosticism and show why the early church held that God is God of the material world—including our bodies and our biology—as well as the spiritual!
