Men and Women in Biblical Perspective - Genesis 1-3 - Oct 18, 1992 - 132

I find myself in a peculiar position this morning. No matter what I say, or how carefully I say it, someone is bound to disagree with me. But that doesn’t begin to cover the subject. Not only will some people disagree with me, even the people who agree with me will probably not agree with ever ... More

Equal But Not Identical: Men And Women In The Local Church - Jul 21, 1991

A Time to Disobey - Daniel 3 - Nov 28, 1999 - 154

Is it ever right for a Christian to disobey the law? Or are we always obligated to obey the law under all circumstances? What do you say?

Will Everyone Eventually Be Saved? - II Peter 3:9 - Jul 24, 2005 - 143

Is Jesus the Only Way to Heaven? - John 14:6 - Jul 31, 2005 - 144

In preparing this message, I faced several important challenges:First, many of us already know the answer to this question. We’ve thought it, we’ve discussed it with others, and we know what we believe. Second, we know that most of the world gives a different answer than we give. That po ... More

Praying for the Lost - I Timothy 2:1-6 - May 14, 2000 - 12

"Prayer is the lifeline of New Testament evangelism, the oxygen for its holy fire. The New Testament was born in prayer. It knows no evangelism without prayer, and no prayer which does not lead to evangelism.” Those are the words of Armin Gesswein, a man God used to ignite a prayer movement in ... More

Is Jesus the Only Way? - Mar 26, 2000

The following e-mail arrived a few days ago: There is one fundamental thing I still have such a problem with. That is that Jesus Christ is the only way to God. What about the people who just don’t get it? I can’t seem to reconcile Jesus Christ and God with not giving good people another ch ... More

The Shepherd's Gift - Ephesians 4:11 - Jun 24, 1990 - 576

About the time I graduated from seminary in 1978, a leading Christian magazine published an article entitled, “Things They Didn’t Tell You at Your Seminary Graduation.” It is subtitled, “Some aphorisms for the brand-new pastor.” I cut it out and saved it because at th ... More

God in Three Persons: A Doctrine We Barely Understand - Jan 12, 1997

My problem this morning is simple: to explain a doctrine that all Christians believe but no one really understands. And I have to do it in 30 minutes!So let’s start at the very beginning. All Christians believe the doctrine of the Trinity. If you do not believe this—that is, if you have ... More

Love One Another Deeply - 1 Peter 1:22-25 - Oct 31, 2004 - 590

I have three things on my mind that I want to talk to you about. These are really three different things, and apparently unconnected, but perhaps by the end of the message, you will see there is a common thread running through all of them. ... More

Is Jesus Really the Only Way to Heaven? - John 14:6 - Jun 17, 2010 - 1250

Portrait of a Godly Leader - I Timothy 3; Titus 1 - Mar 17, 1993 - 418

We begin with the words of Robert Cook: “There is no substitute for character. You can buy brains, but you can’t buy character.” When it comes to selecting leaders, nothing is more important than godly character. You can buy talent … or brains … or knowledge &helli ... More
