Topic: The “Theology of Glory” versus the “Theology of the Cross”?

2023-09-30T00:11:58-05:00Sep 28, 2023|

If millions of people are reading a Christian book or watching a Christian television series, God must be at work, right?

If tens of thousands of people are attending a mega-church with 15 multisite locations, God must be being honored, correct?

If bigger is evidence of God’s favor, Jesus must not have been very favored by God. By the end of His ministry, He had few followers, was falsely convicted, and died a bloody death […]

GUEST: ABRAHAM HAMILTON III, General Counsel and Public Policy Analyst, American Family Association

The establishment of laws and the punishments for breaking them that apply to some but not to others is the bane of a healthy and cohesive society. The United States has prided itself as a country where there is “equal justice under the law” and “liberty and justice for […]

Jesus declared to Peter: “I will build My church; and the gates of Hades will not overpower it” (Matthew 16:18).

That’s a guarantee from the Son of God. In fact, the church is the only institution that Christ promises to build. Not nation-states, not political parties, not para-church Christian ministries—just the church.

The word “church” can be defined a few ways:

  • The building you drive by down the street where people gather to worship
  • […]

Over the last several months, we have heard from guests such as […]

GUEST: MATT MORRELL, pastor, Fourth Baptist Church (Plymouth, MN)

The Bible clearly teaches that Satan was created by God as the preeminent angel before Satan arrogantly desired to be like God (Isaiah 14), rebelling against God and persuading, as some interpreters believe, one third of the angels to join his rebellion.

For this, God cast Satan out of his high position in heaven. Satan […]
