ABOUT THE CLASS:
The Church: The Pillar and Foundation of the Truth

Taking up again the biblical call for the church to become what Paul described as “the pillar and foundation of the truth”, especially in the post-pandemic scenario with the ideological and philosophical influence left by social networks in many Christians around the world, who have been exposed more than ever before to many doctrinal currents, conspiracy theories and cultural movements within the range of a single click. The modern Christian church needs to recognize the ideological battle that is taking place on many Christians’ minds after being overly exposed to many Gigabytes of information at the same time, thanks to the confinement induced by the pandemic and the isolation from the close relationships with the local congregation. The Christians ministers need to recognize too the enormous need of a healthy diet of biblical teaching to the congregations, and the key role that the Bible teacher has in strengthening the church, especially in the ICOC fellowship of churches that historically was characterized in a global scale for not taking seriously the need for deep biblical teaching.
