The Praise Of God

He who is mighty is the one who is able to save, to deliver, to protect, to provide. He is the one who can do all things, who is uniquely mighty. Has done great things for me. I want you to make this personal. He has done great things in history. He has done great things collectively.

How Could A Loving God Send People To Hell?

The question of “how could a loving God send people to hell?” is an important question, and I would venture to say that it is the most important question we have covered so far because it deals with the nature of God, the nature of humanity, and the nature of eternity. These things together drive us into the heart of the Gospel, leading to a choice of placing our trust in Christ. So let’s look at these three points together.

How Could A Loving God Allow So Much Suffering?

There are two types of suffering: the suffering you choose and the suffering that chooses you. The suffering you choose results from things like breaking the law, drinking too much, going to the gym, or buying a cat.

In this message, we look at what they say and how they would instruct us in our thinking, actions, and interactions.

How Can You Take The Bible Literally?

There’s a fundamental misunderstanding that’s often occurring when someone asks how we can take the Bible literally. What’s assumed is that in order to take the Bible truthfully, we have to take every word in it as literally as possible. But to do so is actually to disregard how God is communicating truth! So, hear me, and hear me clearly: there is no Christian who takes the Bible literally, word for word.

Human Life

We are all a traveler in this world, in other words, we live temporarily in this world, life is short. Life is short and some people have a good life, but some people are struggling. Some people are happy and some are sad. Some people are succeeded, and some are failing. Some are rich and some are poor. Some people have a good shelter, but some people don’t have a house to live in. Some people are educated, but some are not. This is happening in this world, and this is human life.
