2 Min Read

Dr. Steven Lawson is senior pastor of Christ Fellowship Baptist Church in Mobile, Alabama, board member and teaching fellow for Ligonier Ministries, and visiting professor in the Doctor of Ministry program at Ligonier Academy. A conference speaker and author, he is also the founder of OnePassion Ministries and serves on the board of directors for The Master's College and Seminary. Dr. Lawson's books include, The Gospel Focus of Charles Spurgeon, The Unwavering Resolve of Jonathan Edwards, and Pillars of Grace.

Here's a preview of what he'll be addressing at our 2014 National Conference in March:

To the World, Folly & a Stumbling Block

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 J. 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.

Dr. Lawson has spoken at many Ligonier conferences and you can find his past messages here. Below is his message from last year's National Conference in which he looked at the influence relativism has had on our culture. In this message, he explained the absurd nature of relativism and reminded us of God's call to stand for the unchanging absolute truth of His Word.
