Misused Terms of the Bible: Salvation, Living by Faith, & Beyond is a LIVE course starting Term 4 Session 1 (7:00–8:15 pm EST) 4/6/2020.

Course Description

There is no time like the present to clear up the confusion once and for all about misused terms of the Bible. Quite a few things are identified as an "abomination" in the Bible; what does that mean? Are you sure you know what the command forbids when you hear, "Thou shalt not kill"? "The just will live by faith" does not mean what you think it means! Are you ready to see that being "saved" does not mean to get right with God and go to heaven? Come explore some misunderstood terms that cripple our comprehension of the Bible!


If you miss it, that's it! MSI LIVE courses will not be available to rewatch or revisit, but all material from each session of these courses will be here in the course page. We encourage you to follow the schedule closely and plan ahead to be with us for these LIVE courses so you can get the most out of lifelong learning with MSI.
