Pleroma – Part 2. The lesson on May 25, 2003 continues the lesson on the Pleroma but first remembers Memorial Day in America which is the holiday that honors America’s war casualties. A handout was given showing how many Americans have died in each war but emphasis was put on what they died for… preserving the freedoms that were endowed by our creator and embraced in the founding of America. The freedoms we possess of life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness (or property) truly come from God and are celebrated in the founding documents of America. Spiritually, the bible declares you shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free. True freedom is in Christ, who has destroyed the bondage of sin and paved the way for true happiness yet there are those who are still focused on themselves instead of Christ and what He has accomplished with His eternal purpose. The focus that God has in scripture is for the ages. Consequently, studying the Pleroma is an exercise in understanding the big picture and the plan of God for the ages. This study takes the focus off of ourselves and places it on God and his plan for eternity. This lesson refers to a chart by Charles Welch on “The Pleroma” which you can download here. Be sure and review the chart while you listen to compliment your studies.
