The interactions with the students – particularly their questions and comments.
Experience growth in their personal holiness and ability to hear God’s voice for themselves.
My faith is always challenged with the character studies detailed in Genesis. From Noah, Abraham, Jacob, and Joseph, specifically, I find comfort in each their fallibilities, and their courage to recognize their errors and progress in their walk with God. Genesis provides one of the greatest platforms for God’s demonstration of His love and grace for individuals – which is why this book is essential for discipleship and personal holiness.
Being raised in Riverside, CA, I was one of the 100 that attended the original Calvary Chapel – Lonnie Frisbee at All Saints Episcopal Church in 1971 – where I met Jesus. Having a fascination with science, I graduated from San Francisco State University in 1980, in the same class taught by Dean Kenyon – founder of the Discovery Institute and Intelligent Design movement. My wife and I and our four children attended Horizon Christian Fellowship in San Diego– and we moved to Aberdeen Scotland where I received my Ph.D. in biochemistry. After returning to San Diego, I was ordained as a pastor in 1998. I have worked in the biotechnology industry for over 20 years and I am currently a toxicology consultant. With continued interest in the field of genetics and theology, I am currently working on my Masters in Theology at the University of Aberdeen, Scotland (distance learning), while teaching at CCBC and consulting.
What I enjoy most about this class is the way that it deepens my understanding and knowledge of God. While in class learning about the different characteristics of the Lord and the way He works in and through us gives me a greater love for Him. Every time I leave this class God continues to reveal more parts of his nature to me throughout the week until our class meets again.
The way that Lu Wing explains scientific evidence through the creation lens is so interesting. He shows us how science actually proves that creation is true, that it could have only been through Him that all things came to life. This can help me in the future with having a greater knowledge of creation and how to explain what I believe to others with opposing views.
Lu Wing has an amazing gift for teaching. He leads you to understand how to take passages apart to discover deeper and more meaningful symbols that will strengthen your relationship with the Lord. I would one hundred percent recommend taking his classes.
I would describe this class as interesting and quite informing. I love listening to Lu wing expound on different theological claims from Genesis scholars and tie science in truth.
That God established His beautiful plan of redemption through a variety of covenants and they are all fulfilled through Jesus Christ. ( Genesis 3:15 ) In addition, I’ve learned about God’s nature, Origin of Sin etc.
Genesis helps me practically apply a deeper intimacy towards worship. The Lord remains faithful and just throughout the book of Genesis.
If you believe that the Bible is the word of God take it. In all seriousness, Genesis sets the foundation for the Gospel. Paul describes this so well in 1 Corinthians 15:21-22 (ESV) — “For as by a man came death, by a man has come also the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, so also in Christ shall all be made alive. Be encouraged my friend and take the class!”
