  • To the World, Folly and a Stumbling Block Media Resource by

    While the church today struggles in the face of anti-Christian opposition, this is not something new. Working out of 1 Corinthians 1:23, Dr. Steven Lawson will remind us in this session that we face the same kinds of struggles today that the church at Corinth faced two thousand years ago. Like them, we face objections to two fundamental truths of our message: the reality of sin and the notion that Jesus alone can save. Dr. Lawson will insist, as Paul did, that we cannot negotiate either truth. View Resource

  • The Moment of Truth Media Resource by

    One of the defining features of our post-Christian culture is the embrace of what we might call “philosophical relativism.” The prevailing view today is that there are no absolute truths. There is only “my truth” and “your truth,” but there are no “true truths,” to borrow Francis Schaeffer’s language. In this session, Dr. Steven Lawson exposes the absurdity and self-defeating nature of denying absolute truth, and also point us toward the One who is the Way, the Truth, and the Life. View Resource

  • The Foreknowledge of God Media Resource by

    Romans 8:29

  • The Truthfulness of God Media Resource by

    John 14:6

    In an age when truth is often seen as entirely subjective, the Bible’s presentation of a God whose truthfulness is absolute and objective stands in stark contrast. Moreover, the claim that this God has spoken truth in sacred Scripture stands the wisdom of this world on its head. In this lesson, Dr. Lawson examines several aspects of the truthfulness of God, showing why it is such a radical and countercultural view to hold in today’s world. View Resource

In this message, Dr. Lawson looks at the nature and necessity of God’s wrath, and the many different ways that it is shown in Scripture. View Resource
