Podcast 224:  The Gift of Hating Sin

Podcast 224: The Gift of Hating Sin

When we read in Genesis 3:15 about God’s curse on Satan we sometimes fail to see the incredible gift in that curse given to us.

“And I will put enmity
Between you and the woman,
And between your seed and her Seed;
He shall bruise your head,
And you shall bruise His heel.”

“And what gift is that?” you ask.
It is the gift of hating sin.
Want to hear more about it?  Then keep listening.

The following is a study of John 12:12-41.

Podcast 223:  Are You Wasting Your Life?

Podcast 223: Are You Wasting Your Life?

One of the greatest Christmas passages in all of Scripture is found in 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.  It reads:

Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own.  For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s.

“What does this have to do with Christmas?” you ask.

Simply this: Are you wasting your life running after trinkets and toys or have you given your life back to the One who gave it to you in the first place?  And, by the way, your answer to this one question will change everything!  Just keep listening.

The following is a study of 1 Corinthians 6:19-20.

Podcast 218:  Plugging the Hole in the Evangelism Bucket

Podcast 218: Plugging the Hole in the Evangelism Bucket

There is a huge difference between Biblical evangelism and the stuff we see portrayed today.

Consider the following statement from John Macarthur:

“We need to adjust our presentation of the gospel. We cannot dismiss the fact that God hates sin and punishes sinners with eternal torment. How can we begin a gospel presentation by telling people on their way to hell that God has a wonderful plan for their lives?”

Ouch. Have you ever been more concerned about not offending your lost friend than the fact they are on their way to Hell? And, if so, what did you do about it? What should we do about it?

Keep listening.

The following is a study on Biblical Evangelism.
