 Church History - 19th and 20th Centuries by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: In this final session David Guzik deals with different trends and movements that have effected the church in tha past 2 centuries, Revival is characterised by 3 main evidences, the church is awakened, sinners are saved in great number and society is impacted, to the extent that jails have closed due to the lack of crime. Philosophical challenges arose in the enlightenment, which was very man centred, people began to ask how man could improve the world and rationalism became popular and placed mans powers of reason above the Bible. In this time there was also the rise of scientism, secularism and also theological liberalism which is almost now dead in it's original form as it substitutes feelings for truth. There were also great social reforms the abolition of slavery, prohibtion and womens rights, the missionary movement really took off in the 19th century as transportation was revolutionised and this lead to the idea that the 20th century would be known as the 'christain century'.

 Church History - Martin Luther & the Anabaptists by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): 1 Timothy 2:5  
Description: During the reformation Luther revived the doctrine of the priesthood of all believers, and empasised that every man was his own priest and that there is only Jesus Christ between man and God, this inturn lead to the foundations for modern democracy. While Luther was abscent from his church in Wittenberg he was replaced by his co-pastor who was zealous for reform and implimented the ordinances he read about in the Bible, such as communion. When Luther returned he rebuked his co-pastor who was only following in Luthers own steps but a bit to energetically for Luther. The Anabaptists were radical reformers who wanted to reform the quickly they read in the scriptures that the church was a called out peple and thus opposed the movemnts of the time that called for church and state to be united.

 Church History - Martin Luther & the German Reformation by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: Luther expected the pope to agree with what he wrote in his 95 Theses and did not expect in the least to break from the church of Rome. But the Church came and challenged Luther and his beliefs but the more the pushed against him and his theology the more Luther resisted and became convinced of it's truth. Because of this coubts crept into Luthers mmind, not about what he found in the scriptures but about the pope and the doctrine that were coming out of the church. In 1521 a council was assembled called 'The Diet of Worms' it was presided over by Emperor Charles V and gave Luther the opertunity to recant what he had written, he didn't. Luther was released but the Emperor decreed that anyone who helped Luther from then on would be excomunicated, when he returned to Germany he translated the Bible into German, a version which is still used today, a german KJV if you will. In 1530 Luther was given one last chance to recant he didn't and the division between Catholocism and Lutherism was finalized.

 Church History - Martin Luther & the Problem of Indulgences by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): Psalm 31:1, Romans 1:17  
Description: Martin Luther was born in Germany to a poor mining family, Luther though excelled at school and studied law at university, he was set to be one of the top legal minds in Europe. However due to a vow to Saint Barbara, patron saint of miners, he became a monk and applied his legal mind to theology, he saw the Lord as righteous Judge of the whole creation and thus was zealous to live a holy life. In 1510 he went to Rome, as he was disillusioned with the way the church was in Germany, there he became even more concerned and left declaring that the city was built over Hell itself! He returned to Germany where he became a Bible teacher it was here in preparing for a lesson one day that he read Psalm 31:1 and later Romans 1:17 and realised by faith man can not only be deemed 'not guilty' but actually be seen as righteous before a perfect God.

 Church History - Orthodox Churches; Calvinism After Calvin by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: The Orthodox church is mainly found in eastern Europe, unlike Protestant and Roman Catholic denminations the Orthodox church is divided along national boundaries; the Russian Orthodox church the Greek Orthodox church etc.., this church movement is very similar the the church of Rome and is bound by the doctrine and tradtions of men. Jakob Hermann was the succesor of Calvin, he was asked to debate the issue of predestination in defence of Calvins views, he accepted yet as he was researching the subject in preperation for the debate he began to side with his opponents views and thus developped a theology opposed to calvinsim, Hermann is better know as Jacob Arminius and thus we get the Calvinist-Arminian debate. Arminianism put out a five point statement of faith called the Remonstrants and the famous five points a calvinsim are a response to the remonstrants. The division between Calvinism and Arminianism was very bitter and nearly lead to war in Holland.

 Church History - The Apostolic Church (33-100) by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): Luke 1:1-4, Ephesians 2:20  
Description: Christianity is more a religion based on factual eventsrather than philosophical supposition. The death and ressurection of the Lord Jesus, the centre point of christianity, were factual events and these are the basis for our faith. An ancient secular roman historian called Talus confirms the darkness that covered the earth following the death of the Lord Jesus, because he was alive at the time. F.F. Bruce said that 'Anyone who propagates the idea that Jesus was a myth is neither a historian nor unbiased.' The distice features of the apostolic church were 1: the prescence of the foundational apostles 2:The unprecidented problems and victories of the church 3:The speed with which the Gospel spread 4:The transition of christianity from a branch of judaism to a seperate religion.

 Church History - The Christian Empire Part 1 (312-1500) by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: Between the years of 250 and 300ADThere was severe persecution of the church under Diocletian, and yet in 311AD the edict of toleration was put forth that stated that christians now had a right to practice their religion like all other faiths. Just before he became emperor of Rome Constantine became a christian, it is told that he saw a cross in the sky and heard a voice saying 'in this sign conquer' he adopted the symobol and won the battle he was facing, whether he was born again or not is still disputed. He granted religious freedom to all faiths and became personally involved in church controversiessuch as the Arian controversy, which states that Jesus is not equal to God. Because of Constantines influence christianity became a privileged religion and thus people became 'christian' for social and political gain, this lead to a great problem in the church.

 Church History - The Christian Empire Part 2 (312-1500) by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: After Constantine became emperor of Rome in 313AD, christianity went from being persecuted to prefered among the roman people, this led to the church being diluted as there were now social and political advantages to being a 'christian'. This influx on non-christians into christian circles led to 'true' christians seeking seperation from the church which led to the beginning of monasticism, but this in turn led to a false sense of spirituality, however there were some monastic movements that were very evangelistic. Another 'movement' that arose in the church at this time was the Roman Catholic church, this denomination came about when the bishop of Rome (which was the most powerful and influential city at the time) was declared by the emperor to have more spiritual authority than all other bishops. Later in 590AD Pope Gregory I was not only the spiritual leader of Rome but also the political leader this came about when the Roman empire fell the pope stepped into the vacuum left. This was when the church of Rome began to gain more and more power.

 Church History - The Christian Empire Part 3 (312-1500) by David Guzik

Topic:
Description: This session deals with some of the hersies that arose in the church before 500AD, in the early 4th century Arius, a respected theologian, taught that Jesus was actually the highest created being and not equal to God, this lead to the council of Nicaea in 325AD, which involved 300 bishops from around the known world gathering to discuss the ideas of Arius. The concil voted 298 - 2 against Arius and Nicene creed was established, declaring Jesus to be God. In 450AD the council of Chalcedon was held to discuss the human nature of Jesus, this council determined correcvctly that Jesus was both fully God and fully man. Islam arose in the 7th century and within 100 years of Muhammad's death Islam streched across much of what was the roman empire, the christian empire had been split in 2 by this time with 2 centre, Rome and Constantinople, eventually Constantinople fell to Islam. In 1095 Pope Urban II launched the first crusade to retake the holy land from islamic turks.

 Church History - The Early Church Part 1 (100-312) by David Guzik

Topic:
Scripture(s): Titus 1:5  
Description: In this period of church history there were no church buildings as we know them, the early christians met in houses, not because it was more spiritual, but becuase of necessity, interestingly the reason they met in the catacombs of Rome was most likely to remember those who were martyred. Their meetings were presided over by an elder or pastor who in turn was presided over by a local 'bishop', literally overseer, who would preside over all the church gatherings an example of a bishop would have been Titus who was told by Paul to appoint elders. Again in this age of the church there was rapid church growth and the gosepl went as far as India Ethiopia and England. But these were times where the church was under great pressure as persecution was rife and suspicion and fear everywhere.
