Where do you go to make sense of the complexities of people’s lives? To understand what makes them (and you) tick? The latest neuroscientific research? Psychological theories? The DSM? Your neighbor? Oprah? Scripture invites us to look deeply into its pages to understand ourselves as God’s redeemed image bearers who wrestle with both suffering and sin. This general session will demonstrate that while Scripture does not give us chapter and verse for every specific situation in life, it does provide a comprehensive, gospel-centered lens to truly understand ourselves and our problems. Knowing that God approaches his people as saints, sufferers, and sinners primes us to expect a relevant word in whatever passage we are hearing, reading, or studying.
