The Greatest Evil for the Greatest Good

April 21, 2013

2

Even in the greatest of evils, all things work together for good for those who are in Christ. Whether it is the Boston bombing, 9/11, Sandy Hook, the Jewish holocaust, or the American holocaust (abortion), God works all these things for our good. Romans 8:28 says, And we know that for those who love God all […]

What the Gospel Is, and What It Is Not

January 25, 2013

3

In the following sermon, Voddie Baucham contrasts the modern gospel, which is no gospel at all, to the true Gospel that alone is the power of God unto salvation for all who believe (Romans 1:16). While the modern gospel is about man and what God can do for him, the true Gospel is about God […]

On Image-Bearers of God

January 17, 2013

Comments Off

God created man in His own image (Genesis 1:26-27, 5:1, 9:6). Man defiled the image of God in man in which he was created (Genesis 3; Romans 5). God became man through the eternal Son, who is the image of God, perfectly reflecting the image of God (John 1:14; Philippians 2:7; Colossians 1:15-17; Matthew 5:17-18; […]

The Resolved Lamb of God

July 10, 2012

Closing out the final Resolved Conference a couple of weeks ago, CJ Mahaney delivered one of the most enthralling messages I have ever heard. No other message should captivate our souls and move us to love, worship, and obey the Lord Jesus Christ than the reality of the cross. Yet, not just the cross on […]

Tim Tebow’s Christian Evangelism

December 9, 2011

91

Denver Bronco’s quarterback Tim Tebow has been in the news a whole lot lately.  Since I don’t follow the NFL very much anymore, the only thing I really know about him is what I pick up in various news stories, whether they are condemning Tebow for so actively and publicly sharing his faith, or giving […]

Make Much of Christ!

November 21, 2011

14

These last couple of months God has been working in me a deep desire to make much of Christ in sharing the Gospel with the lost.  While I wholeheartedly agree with the use of the Law to bring conviction of sin and a recognition of the holy wrath of God upon impenitent sinners, it seems […]

God’s Goodness = Man’s Worst Problem

The most terrifying truth of Scripture is that God is good. – Paul Washer My good friend and dear brother Marcus Pittman of Crown Rights Media had the opportunity to interview Paul Washer at the 2011 Sermon Index Conference in Lilburn, Georgia a few weeks ago.  Knowing the interview was a presentation of the Gospel, […]

Why Christians Should NEVER Vote for Obama (or any other pro-choice/pro-abortion candidate)

September 26, 2011

15

Voting for pro-choice candidates, or pro-abortion candidates such as Barack Obama, should never even be an option for the born again believer.  In fact, I believe it is sin to do so.  How great a sin depends upon how informed one is in making the decision to vote for the pro-choice candidate (which will be […]

The Fear of God

September 16, 2011

One only has to take a brief survey of the American church landscape to clearly see how far gone is the visible church.  Whether it’s messages of health, wealth, and prosperity, purpose-driven mania, or man-centered foolishness, or churches saturated with liberalism, postmodernism, or paganism, the church visible is fatally ill.  This country boasts 85% of […]

Justice, Mercy, and Grace

August 19, 2011

2

 Justice is getting what you deserve, mercy is not getting what you deserve, and grace is getting what you don’t deserve. When we are witnessing to the lost, it is oftentimes important to define the terms we are using to communicate the Gospel.  In one conversation last night during our weekly outreach, after one gentleman […]
