GUEST: GREG GILBERT, senior pastor, Third Avenue Baptist Church

Nearly 2000 years ago, the most important three days in history took place when Jesus Christ was crucified on a cross on Friday, buried in a tomb, and then rose from the dead three days later on Sunday, after which he appeared to hundreds of eyewitnesses.

The reason these events are so consequential is that Jesus was prophesied […]

This is a rebroadcast of our December 22, 2018 program:

The most significant event in history was the coming of the Son of God, Jesus Christ, into our world.

From being born of a virgin woman, to living a sinless life, to performing miraculous acts, to offering His life on a cross to pay the penalty for mankind’s sin, to rising from the dead, to ascending into heaven—all in front of a watching world—is beyond […]

And so the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for 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

Three news stories dominated the headlines in 2020:

  1. The spread and response to COVID-19
  2. Social unrest and violence over “systemic racism”
  3. The Presidential election […]

TOPIC: What’s the Good in the Midst of the Bad?

One of the most well-known (and most misused) passages in Scripture is Romans 8:28. “And we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.

In a nutshell, the apostle is saying under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, that God uses everything in life—hard things, good things, and everything in between—for good purposes in the life of the believer.

It’s […]

** this is a rebroadcast of our May 04. 2019 program **

Last time on the program, we played some audio clips of an event featuring Jewish radio host Dennis Prager and Christian pastor Alistair Begg discussing theological issues such as:

  • Is Jesus actually God?
  • Is salvation by works or by faith?
  • Is faith subjective or objective?

Their conversation highlighted that there are really only two religions: the majority that are based […]

“When Jesus saw the crowds, He went up on the mountain; and after He sat down, His disciples came to Him. He opened His mouth and began to teach them, saying…” Matt 5:1-2

One positive result of the coronavirus is that health, family, church, helping others, access to food, and having a job are being re-prioritized as important over the usual trivial pursuits, such as buying things, recreation, and entertainment.

And yet even these important aspects and others—government, political leadership, education, economics—pale in comparison to what took place this weekend about 2000 […]

For it would be better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than having known it, to turn away from the holy commandment handed on to them. 2 Peter 2:21

Last week, we discussed the first American Gospel film that focuses on some of the false teaching and teachers infecting the church, such as:

  • moralistic preaching (“do good, be moral”)
  • works gospel (“faith plus your good works make you right with God”)
  • attractional church (“gear church for non-believers”)
  • health, wealth, and prosperity gospel (“God will heal you and prosper you […]

GUEST: BRANDON KIMBER, film producer, American Gospel: Christ Alone and Christ Crucified

Christians shouldn’t be surprised that professing Christendom in America is full of fakes, frauds, and charlatans huckstering false teaching and non-saving gospels.  In fact, the apostle Peter guaranteed it in his second letter:

“But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies” […]
