Lessons from the Revelation churches. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
In Revelation two and three, Jesus gives commendations and warnings to seven historic churches in what is now modern-day Turkey.
No church is praised for its growth, programs, music, societal impact, social justice, or relevance to non-believers.
Instead, what Christ commends is faithfulness to God’s word, intolerance of false teaching, perseverance in suffering, and holiness, while warning against sexual immorality, worldliness, and loss of love for Christ.
The church today would do well to read and heed Christ’s messages to these churches.
What is Jesus’ message to His church today? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
In the opening chapters of Revelation, Jesus gives messages to seven historic churches in Asia Minor.
Two of the seven received commendations for their faithfulness while five were warned to repent of their errant ways or face the consequences.
The church today would do well to heed Christ’s commands to these churches: to cling to sound doctrine, to be full of love and good deeds, to not tolerate false teachers or be lukewarm and worldly. Above all, to repent of sin and rekindle love for Christ.
Worldview divide in the mid-term election. This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
Whether you are hearing this before or after the mid-term election, two realities remain the same. The first is the worldview divide in America is wide. Generally speaking, on one side there is Americanism represented by President Trump and Republicans and on the other is nearly Socialism represented by former President Obama and Democrats.
The other reality is that no matter which side God puts in political power, He has given Christians and the church an even greater power to proclaim the saving gospel of Jesus Christ.
Will you be a fool for Christ’s sake? This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.
No matter how educated or how winsome or how accomplished a Christian is, the non-believing world will still view him or her as a fool. That’s because, as the apostle Paul says, “the word of the cross is foolishness to those who are perishing” (1 Corinthians 1:18).
But then he writes, “God was well-pleased through the foolishness of the message preached to save those who believe.”
So Christian, embrace being a fool for Christ’s sake, as the apostle Paul did, knowing the real fools are those who say in their heart, “There is no God.”
