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.

For Thine is the Kingdom

Most commentators suggest that these words were not included in the model prayer given by Jesus and recorded in Matthew 6 and Luke 11. Albert Mohler explains, “As a result of studying ancient manuscripts, scholars now believe with some certainty that these words were probably a later addition to the Lord’s Prayer. Since the Lord’s Prayer seems to end rather abruptly, Christians in the early church added a doxology to the end of the prayer so as to give God the final word of praise in corporate worship settings.”[1]

How Can God Be Good If He Allows a Pandemic?

By Dr. Dillon Burroughs | October 28, 2020

Can God really be good if He allows over 200,000 Americans to die to the coronavirus? This is the topic addressed in program 2 of Dr. Ankerberg’s series with Dr. Erwin Lutzer entitled Pandemics, Plagues, and Natural Disasters: What is God Saying to Us? (Part 2).

Lead Us Not into Temptation
