“Should I date someone who doesn’t share my faith?” “What about online dating?” “How far can we go?”
These and other frequently asked questions are addressed in this message, along with a key principle for finding the “right person.”
In this message Lance and Suzanne Lefler share biblical principles and practical tips for raising children.
Is it possible? It’s more than possible, it’s part of God’s design!
What is the purpose of marriage? And what keeps a marriage together and flourishing? (Hint: It may not be what you think.)
The problem of evil is typically considered to be the biggest problem for Christianity. When we live in such a messed up world, how can we also believe in a good God? This message will look at three aspects of the problem of evil and how the Bible responds to them, and the confidence it gives us in the gospel of Christ.
We’ve all heard someone say, “The Bible is full of contradictions.” But is it? What is a contradiction and what are some good principles for figuring out whether there are contradictions in the Bible? And why does it even matter?
This message introduces us to the historical evidence for the resurrection of Jesus. We also look at alternative theories to the resurrection proposed by skeptics. Given its centrality to Christianity, if one could disprove the resurrection of Christ, they would show the Bible to be false. In this sense, Christianity is historically falsifiable. Therefore it’s crucial to spend some time looking at the historical grounds for the resurrection.
This final message on the Gospel of John looks at Mary Magdalene’s discovery of the empty tomb, Thomas’ doubts, and Peter’s restoration to ministry after denying Jesus. We sum it all up with a look at John’s purpose statement in 20:30-31, that people may find life in Christ.
This message focuses on the spectacle that crucifixion was. We go into detail about the suffering of Christ on the cross–both physical and spiritual–and then look at the possible implications of his example for us today.
This chapter is built around the three trials (interrogations) of Jesus and the three denials of the Apostle Peter. It is the night before Jesus is crucified. His betrayer Judas has gone off and secured a mob to come and arrest Jesus. They take him to two Jewish high priests and ultimately to Pilate, the local Roman governor. The chapter ends with Jesus’ self-identification as King–but with a twist: his kingdom is not going to be established right now. In this sermon we ask what impact Jesus’ kingly authority should have on our daily lives.
