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)

2019-03-05T21:37:17-05:00Mar 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

2019-02-12T17:07:56-05:00Feb 08, 2019|

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?

2019-03-06T14:17:49-05:00Feb 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

2019-01-11T11:24:14-05:00Jan 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)

2019-01-03T20:21:59-05:00Dec 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 […]

Topic: Are You Practicing Discernment?

2018-08-31T10:36:39-05:00Aug 25, 2018|

Beloved, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.  1 John 4:1

Discernment is the ability to distinguish between truth and error.  It’s a sharp biblical worldview that follows Paul’s exhortation to “examine everything carefully; hold fast to that which is good; abstain from every form of evil” (1 Thessalonians 5:21-22).

The mantra in the Evangelical church today […]

TCW Minute: How to Reach the Younger Generation (Week of June 4, 2018)

2018-06-08T15:46:23-05:00Jun 04, 2018|

How to reach the younger generation?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

Research shows that the Millennial generation, those aged 18-40, have a much more secular or religiously pluralistic worldview than previous generations.

Ken Ham president of Answers in Genesis and author of the new book, Gospel Reset, says we need to explain more of the faith, not less, to reach this generation.

Instead of baiting them with trendy music and then slipping in […]

TCW Minute: Freedom from Islam (Week of March 12, 2018)

2018-03-16T22:00:59-05:00Mar 16, 2018|

Freedom from Islam.  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Islam exerts a tight grip on both Muslims and non-Muslims, particularly in Muslim-controlled areas.  Muslims fear ostracism and even the death penalty for leaving the religion, while non-Muslims are given three choices: convert, die, or the dhimma pact, which is subjugation and taxation to keep your head.
This fear-based system is enslaving and breaking free is […]

Topic: How a Young Earth Answers Man’s Oldest Problem (Part 2 of 3)

2018-01-25T23:33:47-05:00Jan 20, 2018|

For in six days the Lord made the heavens and the earth, the sea and all that is in them, and rested on the seventh day. Exodus 20:11

The how and when of the origin of the universe sparks great debate. And for good reason. The ramifications of believing the Biblical account that “In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth” (Genesis 1:1) versus the God-less theory that “In the beginning, nothing exploded […]
