Course:NCCA P8P2 - Counseling the Codependent, A Christian Perspective Utilizing Temperament
This is an in-depth course dealing with the over all topic of codependency; the so-call disease of the 'lost self'.It covers the origin of the problem, description of codependency, types of codependency, differential diagnosis of codependency, and methods of employing temperament therapy to each type.
Course Instructor:Dr. Tommy Snow
Course: BI-MQ 101 -Flora of the Holy Land
This 5 week course looks at the fascinating role played by plants in the Bible, at the environmental wisdom of the ancient texts and at the contribution that plants of the area have made to human settlement and civilization.
Ancient peoples – Jews and Christians alike – depended on the soil of the Holy Land to survive. They had a deep knowledge about the plants around them. The Bible capitalizes on this knowledge by using more than 100 plants, often as metaphors that employ botanical characteristics to convey messages in a language common people would have understood.
This is a certificate course in partnership with the Jerusalem Botanical Gardens, Israel.
Course Instructor: Dr. Ed Bez, President of the Biblical Botanical Garden Society and
Quest Bible Institute & Seminary, Oxford, Georgia USA

Below is a list the core doctrinal beliefs of TCAC:
1The Bible is the written, infallible, authoritative and inspired Word of God.
2There is One true God who revealed Himself as Father in Creation, through His Son in redemption, and as Holy Spirit through empowerment.
3Salvation is by grace through faith in Jesus Christ and the shed blood on the cross of Calvary.
4Pardon and forgiveness of sins are obtained by genuine repentance - a confession and forsaking of sins.
5In obedience to the Word of God we baptize by immersion in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ.
6The Holy Spirit, which is available to the believer today, is a gift of God to empower us to be a witness and to live an overcoming life.
7The Gifts of the Spirit are in operation in the Church today.
8Jesus Christ is preparing a church as a bride adorned for her husband and is coming back for His bride, to reign eternally with Him.
The Knowledge of Good and Evil!
Genesis 2:16 - 17 (NKJV)
16And the LORD God commanded the man, saying, “Of every tree of the garden you may freely eat; 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it you shall surely die.”
For the purpose of this week’s meditation and devotion, I want us to consider the damage that the first act of disobedience did to man’s relationship with God. I believe that this bit of knowledge could be one of the most important that a person could add to their life. A study of the story of creation shows that man was tempted to eat of this tree because it would make one wise. He was promised by Satan that to eat from this tree would make him like God in the respect of discerning good and evil.
Sounds great, right? The problem, though, is that with this knowledge man gained an understanding of his own nakedness and sinful condition while at the same time he became aware of the complete purity of God. This started mankind down a course of running and hiding from God that we still fight today.
It is so important that we allow the word of God to begin to define our standing with God. Scriptures like Romans 5:1 declare that we have peace with God through Jesus Christ. Ephesians 2:8-9 declares that we are saved by grace through faith, not of ourselves, not of works, but rather because of the gift of God.
This week I want you to meditate and consider the basis of your relationship with God. What is the justification that you use to say that you a child of God? If you are struggling with your relationship with God, I want you to consider the damage that the knowledge of good and evil did to mankind and I want you to purpose to begin to allow the Word of God to set the conditions of your standing with God.
Romans 5:1-11; 8:1-17
