    Isaiah 45:1-7

    We believe that God has ordained the preaching of His Word, prayer, and the sacraments as the means by which He sanctifies people’s lives. There is no substitute for the Scriptures if we want to know and please God, and this is especially true in our worship. Unfortunately, the church today is dethroning God and the power of His Gospel for alternatives and counterfeits. The result of using man-pleasing tactics rather than simply focusing on the preaching, reading, singing, and praying of God’s Word is that the knowledge of God’s glory is diminished, His people become spiritually malnourished, and the … View Resource

    Isaiah 45:4-7

    God warns in Isaiah 5:20, “Woe to those who call evil good, and good evil.” We would expect a good and righteous God to say things like that. But things start to get a little confusing as we read on in the book of Isaiah. In chapter forty-five, verse seven, God seems to be saying something that doesn’t appear to fit into our understanding of His good and holy character. God plainly says, “I make peace, and create evil.” What do we do with a statement like this? How can a good God create evil? Looking at this difficult saying … View Resource

    Isaiah 45:4-7

    You may be surprised to learn that Christianity shares a fundamental view of God with Islam. Although both belief systems are diametrically opposed in many ways, both agree that there is only one God and that He is sovereign over all creation. But how we understand God’s involvement in our lives is a different subject altogether. In this message, Dr. Sproul discusses the integral part God has in every area of life including “Peace and Calamity.” View Resource

    I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God” (Isa. 45:5).

This session considers the uniqueness of God in a world full of false gods. View Resource
