Today I was interviewed on American Family Radio by Tim Wildmon and Jim Stanley about the church in China. They asked me why the church has grown so dramatically in spite of decades of crushing persecution. The numbers are indeed staggering:1949: 700,000 Christians1974: 2,500,000 Christians1980: 10,000,000 Christians2012: 130,000,000 ChristiansHow ...
We’re looking for sermon tapes from Northeast Bible Church, Garland, Texas, from 1983-1988. Those were the years I served as pastor of that congregation.Back then cassette tapes were pretty exciting because no one had heard of the Internet, the iPhone, podcasting, YouTube, and all the other technological marvels that we take for granted. ...
Last Friday John Riley and I interviewed Jim Bob Duggar of the TV show 19 Kids and Counting at the Values Voters Summit in Washington D.C. During the interview Jim Bob told us that during their visit to the Washington the kids were actually doing the camera work for the season-ending episode. At one point a large group of the Duggar children walked...
On the Friday edition of “Today’s Issues,” Tim Wildmon and I interviewed Franklin Graham about his father’s new book Storm Warning, which discusses the Second Coming and current events. Franklin also gave us an update on his father’s health and also talked briefly about the three Samaritan’s Purse workers who w...
We have a new podcast about a question posed by religious leaders who wanted to trick Christ. This topic that matters just as much today as it did 2,000 years ago when Christ was asked about it: Can we believe in life after death?
Recently we redesigned our podcasting page to make it easier to use. When we started podcasting two years, we had only a few podcasts online. Today we have over 100 and the number grows every week as we add sermons, radio interviews, and special Christmas and Easter programming. Here are some of the new features you’ll notice:1. We now list t...
Here’s the radio interview we did with Mosab Hassan Yousef, author of Son of Hamas. He tells the amazing story of his life as of his life as a double agent for Israel and Hamas. You will also hear his similarly remarkable conversion story. What was it about Jesus’ message that first attracted him? His answer may surprise you. &nbs...
This week we are starting a five-part podcast series called “Samson: A Man for the 21st-Century.” In January and February of 1990 I preached these messages at Calvary Memorial Church in Oak Park, Illinois.Probably no sermon series from my early years in Oak Park made such an impact. For years afterward people would say, “I re...
*We’re on the road again, this time to New Jersey. Marlene and I are flying to Philadelphia where our good friend Pastor Paul Barreca will pick us up and drive us to Vineland. I first met Paul several years ago at Word of Life in New York. Then I spoke for him at Faith Bible Church in Vineland. This weekend we’re speaking at Faith for a...
Starting this week we are posting a brand-new podcast series called “The Healing Power of Forgiveness.” These messages became the basis for my book by the same title. I preached this series at Word of Life Campground in New York in July 2003. This week’s podcast is called Healing the Hurt We Never Deserved.In later weeks we’...
In the year since we started podcasting, we have uploaded over 60 different podcasts. Most are sermons preached in various places, a few are radio interviews, and we also have a question and answer session that I did at Cannon Beach Conference Center. You can currently access those podcasts through the Audio section of our website and also through ...
Last September I spoke at the Pentagon Prayer Breakfast in Washington, D.C. We have just posted the podcast of the message I delivered that morning to a group of around 100 military personnel—from enlisted men and women all the way up to a three-star general. When I announced that I was going to speak on “Why you need your enemies and y...
We have just uploaded a new podcast called Life on the Edge. In it I argue that being saved doesn’t mean being safe in the world. Being truly saved means being so safe in God that you are willing to risk everything for the sake of the Kingdom. The message, which was originally given to college students, challenges all of us to stop playing it...
We have just posted our first podcast in two languages. Several weeks ago I spoke for the 100th Anniversary service of the Chinese Bible Church of Oak Park, IL. Just before I spoke, I was introduced by Pastor Timothy Fung, the pastor emeritus and a longtime personal friend. Pastor Fung serves on the Board of Reference for Keep Believing Ministries....
Earlier today we posted a brand-new podcast called Asymmetric Spiritual Warfare. It seems appropriate that this podcast should come on 9/11 because the treacherous attack that occurred seven years ago is the classic modern example of asymmetric warfare. Although the War on Terror didn’t start that day, our understanding of it changed forever ...
12:09 PM While reading William F. Buckley’s literary autobiography Miles Gone By, I came across a wonderful quote that Buckley says he got during his days at Yale University. It comes from “a crusty academic believer” who was asked during the rise of Darwinism in the l800s, How can you still believe in God? He answere ...
17. Two Quick NotesFebruary 5, 2006
1) Kudos to Dave Burchett for a stellar first week as the newest Crosswalk blogger. Dave is an accomplished author, an award winning sports TV director, and an extremely trenchant commentator on the issues of the day. Dave is an old friend, and I’ve always wanted to use the word “trenchant,” and now I’ve done it ...
Last Tuesday I mentioned to the students at Word of Life Bible Institute that on the flight to New York, I had finished reading My Fundamentalist Education by Christine Rosen. The book recounts Rosen’s years as a student at Keswick Christian School, a large evangelical Christian school in St. Petersburg, Florida. Unli ...

10:24 AM A friend just sent me an amazing Anchor for the Lord story:We have a friend, Richard, from our small group Bible study who is a bagger at Publix grocery store. He speaks to everyone he can about Christ and over a period of time became friendly with a 90+ yr. old sea captain from Norway with an atheist orientation. ...
20. Day 3 at WOLBIFebruary 2, 2006
The week is just rushing along. This morning I lectured for three hours on Galatians 3-4. Every year I find the student body is a little bit different. A few years ago we had a really boisterous group that liked to talk and sing and banter with me. This year’s group seems very attentive and studious. They come in to t ...
21. Day 2 at WOLBIFebruary 1, 2006
6:48 AM Yesterday a student asked if I had lived in Oak Park. When I told him yes, he said, “Did you ever eat at Mickey’s?” I laughed and told him many times. Mickey’s is a locally-famous hamburger joint on Harlem Avenue in Oak Park. I didn’t tell him that the boys liked it better than I did. (I was partia ...
Quick notes from Day 1 at Word of Life Bible Institute. . . We’re off to a good start on a busy week. I’m teaching ten classes on Galatians to 325 first-year students. Then I’m speaking four other times, plus we have five other meetings. So there’s not a lot of down time. . . . It’s cold in ups ...
This morning I attended the Eggville Free Will Baptist Church. Let me say right up front that this is a true country church. You can only get there by traveling on several winding country roads. The well-kept buildings testify to the pride and sense of ownership of those who worship there. I arrived just before the service ...
A few years ago, at the request of a group of evangelical leaders, I wrote a book called An Anchor for the Soul. It’s a very simple presentation of the gospel, mainly for people without much Bible knowledge, written in “Wal-Mart English” so it is easy to understand. The book has had wide distribution at Ground Zero in ...
10:24 AM Here’s a testimony to the power of the gospel: 12 years ago I was a Communist and had no clue what God is all about. I was very good if not perfect in China. There is no concept of sin in Chinese culture. But I was not happy in China. 12 years later I am a sinner in America but I am all happy. My soul fi ...
