Dr. Paige Patterson headlines Sanders Lecture Series
Three-day event at LC
Louisiana College made a change in its schedule this week.
The three-day Sanders Lectures series happened Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday at 11 a.m. in Guinn Auditorium and featured a daily Bible study with Dr. Paige Patterson, the president of Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, TX.
The lecture series is named for Perry Sanders, the long-time senior pastor at First Baptist Church of Lafayette. Its purpose is to bring to the college a Biblical scholar to lead the campus through a study of important passages of the Bible.
Patterson is the eighth president of Southwestern. He is well-known in the Southern Baptist Convention as being one of the principal men who fought for a resurgence of conservative theology in the SBC.
"Every Southern Baptist who loves the Holy Scriptures is deeply indebted to this man for the battle for the Bible in our convention," said LC professor Dr. Chuck Quarles. "We were heading in a very dangerous direction."
Here is a summary of Dr. Patterson's messages.
Dr. Patterson spent the bulk of his message in the first three books of Genesis.
He called Genesis 1:1, "the most important verse in the Bible."
From there, Dr. Patterson spoke on how God is the moral judge of the universe, the relationship between men and women as given in the first three chapters, and the futility of human beings who try to cover their spiritual nakedness caused by our first parents' sin.
Dr. Patterson spoke from Ezekiel 37.
"When you look at what's going on in the world today and you listen to the press... you'll be discouraged and disheartened," Dr. Patterson said. "But, I don't want you to be anymore. You live in the most exciting time in history because you are alive when this promise to Ezekiel has begun to unfold."
Dr. Patterson spoke from Revelation 10.
In his view, Dr. Patterson broke down an explanation of Revelation in four parts: The Church Age, the Rapture, the Great Tribulation and Christ's return for the Millennium.
"There is nothing more important you will do in your life than to share your testimony of your faith in Jesus Christ," Patterson told students in wrapping up his lecture series.
