A Question for Jesus - Matthew 11:3 - Dec 19, 2004 - 79

Prophet on the Run - 1 Kings 19:1-9 - Mar 7, 2006 - 190

The Bible doesn’t sugarcoat the truth about its heroes. It gives us the whole story, the good news and the bad news at the same time.

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

I can think of only four ways to answer the question raised in the title of this sermon:1) Everyone will eventually be saved.2) No one will eventually be saved.3) Some will be saved and some will be lost.4) There is no way to know.Let’s consider answer #1, which is becoming increasingly popula ...

From Sodom to Oak Park - Genesis 19 - Jun 2, 1996 - 24

Genesis 19 tells one of the most dramatic stories in all the Bible. Even people who never go to church know that God destroyed Sodom and Gomorrah with a flood of burning sulphur.

“Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the LORD is to be praised” (Proverbs 31:30). “Beauty? Let me tell you something, being thought of as ‘a beautiful woman’ has spared me nothing in life, no heartache, no trouble. Love has been difficult. ... More

Who is Jesus Christ? - Matthew 16:13-16 - Oct 11, 2009 - 1215

Who is Jesus Christ? Before you answer that question, let me set the scene. It’s a few minutes past noon in downtown New York City. You’ve walking with a few friends to a favorite lunch spot when a camera crew stops you for a spontaneous interview. To your surprise, their questions have ... More

Chariots of Fire - 2 Kings 2 - Mar 8, 2006 - 193

The Right Stuff - Matthew 5:5 - Jan 21, 1996 - 53

I clearly remember the first time the Beatitudes caught my attention.

During our visit we spent seve ... More
