Christ died on the cross so that we could settle our sins before Judgment Day. When we die, our choice is sealed for eternity. God uses seven criteria to judge unbelievers: by His truth, according to His kindness, according to one's accumulated guilt, one's deeds compared to Christ's, without favoritism, divine revelation and one's innermost secrets. Our days of mercy are not...

God 's sovereignty in salvation, justice in condemnation, His grace through Christ, His power through the Holy Spirit and His wisdom in committing such a vital task of preaching the Gospel to people such as us. How do we embrace our responsibility in all of this? Dr. Davis teaches that only those who place their faith in Christ-the Christ of the Bible are saved. Preached...

Topic: Preaching & Teaching
Jesus may come at any moment. We should live with such urgency and purity that we will focus our lives in the light of that truth. Scoffers like Thomas Huxley say that religion restricts our sexual freedom. They believe that because they have not experienced God, He does not exist. However, that reasoning is faulty.

Topic: Return of Christ
I’d like to list a few ways the biblical idea of repentance can indeed be stolen. Unhitch Method One way to hijack something would be to unhitch the word from the meaning the way a hijacker might disconnect the cab of an 18-wheeler from the cargo carrying trailer behind. In this approach, “repentance” gets disconnected from the fruit of repentance. Think Matthew 3:8 ...
