The Truth of the Cross
In a day when many people believe that the gospel is simply a message about how we can have a better life, a clear proclamation of the cross and what it accomplished is among our most pressing needs. The Apostle Paul tells us that he decided to know nothing among the people of God "except Jesus Christ and him crucified" (1 Cor. 2:2). People need a consistent explanation of the cross of Christ and what it accomplished. Christ's atoning work is the centerpiece of the gospel and the only solution for humanity's estrangement from our Creator.
This fall, Ligonier Ministries is hosting a special fall conference in Philadelphia that will look at the meaning and significance of the cross. I'm pleased to have Dr. Steven Lawson and Dr. Stephen Nichols joining me at Tenth Presbyterian Church on October 3rd and 4th, 2014, to reflect on the atoning work of Christ. We will consider topics such as the necessity of the atonement, the reason for the incarnation, the two natures of Christ, and several others. There will also be special question-and-answer sessions that will give attendees the opportunity to ask the speakers questions about these and other topics.
I am excited about this fall event, which promises to be an edifying time of worship, fellowship, and teaching. Will you consider joining us for this conference?
