How to have peace in a tumultuous 2019? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Stir the following: an opposition party in the US House intent on undermining the president, the homosexual movement bent on enforcing affirmation, and evangelicalism embracing “social justice” and other doctrinal compromises. This year looks to be turbulent.
But there is nothing new under the sun. The Bible says, “Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication with thanksgiving let your requests be made known to God. And the peace of God, which surpasses all comprehension, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:6-7
What does productivity mean for the Christian? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Productivity can seem a subject more suited for business-people than for Christians. But the Bible is clear, especially in Jesus’ parable of the talents in Matthew 25, that God expects His followers to use everything He gives us to advance His kingdom.
In his book, Do More Better, pastor Tim Challies shares a plan for Christians to become more productive, not merely for self-improvement, but rather for God’s glory and the good of others. Who wouldn’t want to hear God say, “Well done, good and faithful slave. You were faithful with a few things, I will put you in charge of many things; enter into the joy of your master.”
Don’t miss the Reason for the season. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
The angel announced to the shepherds: Behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10-11
The coming of the Son of God into the world was the greatest event in history, and yet most everyone missed that first Christmas.
The innkeeper was too busy. The religious leaders too self-righteous. The people of Jerusalem too absorbed in religious rituals.
It’s no different today. Let’s not let shopping, Santa, or secularism distract us from worshipping the Savior, Christ the Lord.
Truths without The Truth. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Psychology professor Jordan Peterson and Orthodox Jew Ben Shapiro have become well-known for their pushback against Cultural Marxism, which seeks to topple biblical Christianity in order to enforce a utopian world of social justice.
Peterson and Shapiro speak some truths, but Christians should be wary of too much influence by their worldview that mixes some biblical truth with flawed human reason.
Let’s be reminded from 2 Peter 1 that, “God’s divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness, through the true knowledge of Him who called us by His own glory and excellence.”
