The Exceeding Sinfulness of Sin

By R. L. Wilson / December 15, 2020

“Let us mark what kind of Being the Redeemer of mankind must needs be, in order to provide eternal redemption for sinners. If no one less than the Eternal God, the Creator and Preserver of all things, could take away the sin of the world, sin must be a far more abominable thing in the sight of God than most men suppose.”[1]

Fulfilling God’s Message

By R. L. Wilson / November 30, 2020

Many years ago I taught a Bible study entitled “Christ BC” (Christ Before Christ). It was a beautiful study of Jesus found in 12 or 13 people and events in the Old Testament.

Biblical Response to Suffering

By Dr. Dillon Burroughs / October 5, 2020

In our series with Dr. Erwin Lutzer called “Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What Is God Saying to Us?”, program three addresses the Bible’s response to suffering.
