BASIC BIBLICAL TEACHINGS FOR THE
GODLY AND MORAL LIFE: 4
Guest writer Monte W. Holland
For some time, my husband, Monte, has been concerned about today’s young generation and the ethical behavior, which they are exposed to in today’s society. He sees the inconsistencies in what they experience in society and what is taught by Biblical Scripture, where lessons on “The Godly, Moral Life,” are presented.
As a step in counteracting society’s UnGodly, Immoral life lessons, he developed a series of six lessons, one for each week in Lent. Each lesson has seven daily sections. His entire work is posted by host site the Open Hands Ministry, a service of the United Methodist Churches in the Ligonier, PA, area. This organization provides layettes for WIC babies in Westmoreland County, and operates second-hand clothing and furnishings stores in Stahlstown and Jeannette.

We find that these leaders were jealous of the rapport Jesus had with (to continue reading this post and/or to see previous posts in this Lenten series, click on: http://www.methodists-care.org/ , then click on ONLINE STUDY).
