When Paul preached the gospel in the Macedonian port town of Thessalonica, he preached with such power and clarity that the people rioted in opposition to the truth. It is therefore no surprise that 1 and 2 Thessalonians are rich with the same power and clarity of the gospel that Paul had originally preached. In this lecture, Dr. Lawson showcases the truth of God’s grace and power in these letters so that we might recognize the hope of the epistles to the Thessalonians as our own.
Sinclair Ferguson, Steven Lawson, R.C. Sproul and Cal Thomas answer questions on a variety of topics that address the Christian’s role in civil disobedience; teaching our children to defend their faith as they transition to college; the authoritative interpretation of Scripture; the revival of our nation and how we can know that we are saved, to name a few. The questions addressed in this session are: 1. What guidance would you give preachers on speaking about politics from the pulpit?2. Is there a role for civil disobedience?3. Do any of you see signs of revival in our nation?
