The Holy Spirit and Spirituality
The Book of Job
which deals with the perennial question, was one of the first books of the Bible written.
God gave us, early on, some answers to the most difficult of all issues. Of course, even
after we study Job, even in the context of the rest of the Bible, the perennial question
remains. We are assured, though, of the perennial answer: Jesus Christ, in whom "we
have redemption through Hid blood" (Eph. 1:7, NKJV)--the One through whom all
answer come. Principal Contributor: Clifford R. Goldstein
The Role of the Church in the Community
the whole gospel as more than preaching the truth of salvation by faith, however
foundational that is to all that we do. Jesus shows us that preaching the gospel also means
tangible expression of love and compassion for the poor, hungry, sick, broken hearted,
oppressed, outcast, and imprisoned. It's about biblical justice and undoing what the devil
has done at least to whatever degree we now can as we look forward to Jesus' ultimate triumph over evil at the end of the age. Principal Contributors: Gaspar Colon and May-Ellen Colon.

"Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, Luke surveyed the historical materials, interviewed the witnesses (Luke 1:2), and then, with 'perfect understanding of all things,' written 'an orderly account' that the readers 'may know the certainty' of Jesus and His good news (vss 3, 4, NKJV)."

The Teachings of Jesus
Principal Contributor: Carlos A. Steger
"God created humans as creatures who can love. Love, though, can't exist without freedom, moral freedom, And moral freedom can't exist without law, moral law. Love rests on freedom, and freedom rests on law. Hence, the core of God's government, the foundation of love—has to be His law."--The Law and Love, p. 169

The Christian Life
Truth is not just knowledge of doctrines and texts but something that influences the believer on a personal level. Truth affects the spiritual life and impacts how a person will relate to the challenges of daily living. There is a practical, life-changing aspect of our religion that never should be denied or denigrated. At the same time, the role of experience never should take away from the importance of correct biblical teachings. Reinder Bruinsma, principal contributor.
The Prophetic Gift
What is the role of the prophetic gift? If we claim the Bible as our final authority, what authority (if any) should the Spirit of Prophecy have? How should these writings be interpreted? Though this gift has been a blessing, in what ways has it been misused?
Gerhard Pfandl, principal contributor.
Atonement and the Cross of Christ
The fullness of the benefits of the atonement is enjoyed only by those who, after being touched by the Holy Spirit, accept God's offer of salvation in Christ as the exclusive means of forgiveness and reconciliation. Their hearts are possessed by love and gratitude to God and Christ for this infinite sacrifice.
Dr. Angel M. Rodriguez, principal contributor.
