2020-01-15T15:13:48-06:00Jan 11, 2020|

Guest: Tom Ascol, Pastor and Film Producer of By What Standard?

The Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) is the largest Protestant denomination in the United States, with an average weekly attendance of over five million people at affiliated churches and an overall membership of nearly 15 million.

A rare example of a Christian organization turning from theological liberalism, as it did in the 1970s and 1980s in an era known as the “conservative resurgence” (previously the denomination […]

Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the knowledge of God and of Jesus our Lord; seeing that His 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. 2 Peter 1:2-3

It’s been said that “the most important thing about a person is their view of God.”

If […]

TOPIC: Should Female Preachers “Go Home”?

2019-11-03T20:49:36-06:00Nov 02, 2019|

The popular Christian website GotQuestions.org has answered 588,885 questions related to the Bible.  Of those hundreds of thousands of questions, what do you think the No. 1 most asked question is?

If you said, “What does the Bible say about women pastors?” you are correct.

Think about that for a moment.  Of all the questions, what the Bible says about female pastors is the No. 1 question?

Why […]

TOPIC: Christian — Practice What You Preach

The scribes and the Pharisees have seated themselves in the chair of Moses; therefore all that they tell you, do and observe, but do not do according to their deeds; for they say things and do not do them. —Jesus (Matthew 23:2-3)

During the earthly life of Christ, the Pharisees were a strict religious sect known for their public displays of religious acts, such as wearing showy garments, fastidiously washing hands, and giving alms and […]

TCW Minute: Man’s Work v. Christ’s Work (Week of April 29, 2019)

2019-05-04T14:30:22-05:00Apr 29, 2019|

Only two religions.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Jewish radio host Dennis Prager and Christian pastor Alistair Begg recently took part in an event to discuss theological issues.

Their interchange made clear that all religions, including some Christian ones, are based on man earning favor through doing works.  Only biblical Christianity is based on Christ earning favor for us through His work on the cross.

It’s the difference that makes all the difference.

TCW Minute: Is Jesus Really the Only Way? (Week of March 4, 2019)

2019-03-05T21:37:17-06:00Mar 04, 2019|

Is Jesus really the only way?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Jesus said, “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

Few would dare to make a claim like that, but only Jesus could back it up.

His sinless life and supernatural works, such as turning water into wine, healing the lame, raising the dead, and Himself rising from the grave with […]

TOPIC: Creation Stewardship vs. Environmental Idolatry

This week, U.S. Congresswoman (NY-14) Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, the 29-year-old self-described Democratic Socialist, released the framework for a “Green New Deal” which includes:

  • “meeting 100 percent of the power demand through clean, renewable, and zero-emission energy sources”
  • “upgrading all existing buildings” in the country for energy efficiency
  • “eliminate pollution and greenhouse gas emissions” from farms
  • “overhauling transportation systems” to reduce emissions — including expanding electric car manufacturing, building “charging stations everywhere,” and expanding high-speed rail […]

TOPIC: Why “Life Is Best” and Abortion Is the Most Revered Sacrament of the Left?

2019-03-06T14:17:49-06:00Feb 02, 2019|

Abortion is the intentional killing of a pre-born human being.  Infanticide is the intentional killing of a human being after birth.  Because God has written His law on the human heart, everyone knows, unless they ignore their conscience, that the intentional killing of another human being—except in cases of personal, civil, or national defense—is morally wrong and unjust.

With that in mind, it is difficult to understand how proponents of killing pre-born or post-born babies […]

TOPIC: Biblical Call and Plan for Productivity

2019-01-11T11:24:14-06:00Jan 05, 2019|

His master said to him, ‘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.’  Matthew 25:23

At first glance, productivity can seem a subject more suited for business-people than for Christians.  But God’s Word, specifically Jesus’ parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30 , is clear that God expects His followers to use and […]

TCW Minute: Making and Keeping Resolutions (Week of Dec. 31, 2018)

2019-01-03T20:21:59-06:00Dec 31, 2018|

It’s a new year—so what about making resolutions?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

The Bible is full of imperatives—do this, don’t do that.  So resolving to do something for God’s glory, pursued with His strength, is not only good but commanded.

The Bible says in Philippians 2:12-13: Work out your salvation with fear and trembling; for it is God who is at work in you, both to will and to work for […]
