Being a Christian in a Post-Christian Culture
In his last major address to His disciples before His passion, our Lord said that upon His ascension, the Father would send "another Comforter" in His name (John 14, KJV). This Comforter is not one who offers mere consolation, but is rather the Holy Spirit of God who comes alongside His people with strength to overcome the world.
Because Christ has overcome the world and given us His Spirit, we can face the worst that the world throws at us. Yet sometimes we have difficulty seeing Christ's reign over all things. Moreover, we don't always stand with the boldness that we should have in light of our service to the One who has overcome all of His and our enemies.
An Invitation from R.C. Sproul
On March 13–15, 2014, we will host our annual conference in Orlando, Fla. Our theme is "Overcoming the World: Being a Christian in a Post-Christian Culture," and Voddie Baucham, Sinclair Ferguson, Robert Godfrey, Steven Lawson, Albert Mohler, Stephen Nichols, R.C. Sproul Jr., and Derek Thomas will join me in considering how we can overcome a world that wants to overcome us. Looking to God's Word, we will consider Christ's victory over the world, how the church has stood firm in history against unbelief, what it means to be in the world but not of the world, how we are to engage non-Christian worldviews, the gospel's answer to the "new" sexual ethic, and other topics.
I am excited for this time of study, fellowship, encouragement, and worship as we gather together to learn how to serve Christ in this difficult world. Will you please consider joining us this March?
