September 15, 2020

Pine Knoll Community,

Thinking of our Pine Knoll family and sending love and prayers.

Although in this covid emergency regular meetings in person are not possible, the work has continued, and we have good news.

The long awaited book, Graham Maxwell’s Conversations About God, arrives tomorrow from the press via an 18- wheeler truck with 19 pallets of good news.  The hardcover, 496-page book format of Graham Maxwell and Lou Venden’s 1984 audio series in the University Church, includes the Bible reference sheets and is printed in full color with nature scenes in each of the 20 chapters.  Jon Paulien has outdone even his own highly respected skills as editor, bringing the audio to book format.  We think you will be as thrilled as we are!
If you live locally, call and come by to pick up your gift copy;or if you live at a distance, send us your address and phone number for a mailed copy.

Jon Paulien’s new audio series, The God of the Bible, continues, recently having finished recording a background biblical study related to chapter 4 of the Conversations About God book.  This new audio series will be ongoing, and through class # 7 in the series is already available on pineknoll.org

Alan, pineknoll.org webmaster, has uploaded the new fourth quarter Sabbath School series on Education. Here’s the direct link:  http://pkp.cc/20204

Wishing each of you a beautiful September and coming Autumn.  May your days be safe and well, and God’s arms around you, with His own kinds of joy and guidance infusing these unusual times.
 
Cherie and your Pine Knoll team

What We Believe Print
Written by Graham Maxwell

Graham MaxwellWhat We Believe -- A message from Graham Maxwell

I believe that the most important of all Christian beliefs is the one that brings joy and assurance to God's friends everywhere -- the truth about our Heavenly Father that was confirmed at such cost by the life and death of His Son.


God is not the kind of person His enemies have made Him out to be -- arbitrary, unforgiving and severe. Jesus said, "If you have seen Me, you have seen the Father." God is just as loving and trustworthy as His Son, just as willing to forgive and heal. Though infinite in majesty and power, our Creator is an equally gracious Person who values nothing higher than the freedom, dignity, and individuality of His intelligent creatures -- that their love, their faith, their willingness to listen and obey may be freely given. He even prefers to regard us not as servants but as friends.

This is the truth revealed through all the books of Scripture. This is the everlasting Good News that wins the trust and admiration of God's loyal children throughout the universe.


Like Abraham and Moses -- the ones God spoke of as His trusted friends -- God's friends today want to speak well and truly of our Heavenly Father. We covet as the highest of all commendations the words of God about Job: "He has said of Me what is right."

How God Won His Case (Perceptions of a "Juror") Print
Written by Graham Maxwell

God may you "win your case when you go into court!"

Goodspeed's dramatic translation of Romans 3:4 matches Paul's use of David's prayer in Psalm 51:4. The apostle has raised the question, does the lack of faith among God's privileged people mean that God Himself cannot be trusted? "By no means! God must prove true, though every man be false; as the Scripture says, ‘That you may be shown to be right in what you say, and win your case when you go into court.'"

If God had not been accused, there would have been no need for Him to defend Himself. And just as the charges had been heard throughout the universe, so the answers must be publicly made known. When Daniel described a convening of the heavenly court, he emphasized the open presentation of the evidence. A hundred million watched as "the court sat in judgement, and the books were opened" (Daniel 7:10, RSV).
