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 […]

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.

2018-09-21T21:48:13-05:00Sep 21, 2018|

Social justice is a gospel issue?  This is David Wheaton, host of The Christian Worldview.

That statement—“Social justice is a gospel issue”—has become the rallying call of many evangelicals, as in Christians must work to end perceived oppression.  But is that biblically supportable?

Well, what did Jesus say and do?  Did He work to end the structures of racism, sexism, and the myriad of other injustices of His day?  The answer is no.  He preached the […]
