Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Conflicts of Conscience, Part 1 of 3 (The Church in Babylon)

May 10, 2018

Christians in America are rapidly becoming like Daniel and his friends in Babylon—out of sync with their pagan environment. How do we reconcile what we believe with what we have to do to live in such a culture? In this message we look for the answers.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

God told His people in the Babylonian captivity to have large families and support the country they lived in. Could this be a blueprint for how American believers should react to increasing hostility? In this message we find important lessons from Jeremiah chapter 29. 
May 9, 2018
Christians were once a dominant force in American culture. That day has passed. So how do we live as a minority in a now-pagan culture? The surprising answers come from Jeremiah chapter 29, where God tells captive Israel how to live in a faraway land.

Should believers living under national judgment circle the wagons and live off the grid, or engage their flawed culture with enthusiasm? The surprising answer comes from God’s instructions to captive Judah living in Babylon. 
May 7, 2018
In the midst of darkness, light is easy to see. Jeremiah’s eyes were full of tears as he prophesied the righteous judgment of God against a sinning, rebellious Jerusalem. Through his sorrow, he recalled a word of hope—a word we need today. 
May 4, 2018
Jesus looked on Jerusalem from the Mount of Olives and wept over the destruction He knew the Romans would soon bring. Many centuries earlier, the prophet Jeremiah wept when the city was destroyed. Do we weep for our nation, soon to feel judgment? 
May 3, 2018
Those who lived in Jerusalem did not realize their destruction was imminent. They never thought God would bring them to account, since this was where His Temple stood. Jeremiah rightly wept as he foresaw the terrible hand of God’s judgment. 
May 2, 2018
When the judgment of God falls, things we hold dear are often laid waste. The city of Jerusalem with its temple was sacked and looted by invading armies whose actions came in the plan and will of God.

What might it be like when God judges America for its personal and national sins? We need to see what God did to Judah in the days of Jeremiah, when both the righteous and the wicked suffered. In this message we learn more lessons from those ancient days. 
April 30, 2018
When Jeremiah proclaimed the coming judgment of God, his fellow Israelites paid him no heed. Life went on with no thought of a day of accounting. The lessons they ultimately learned are lessons we in America must learn, because God is still the same.  
April 27, 2018
When God’s judgment comes, there is no escape. Jeremiah’s warnings to Judah were disregarded, and the people and their king paid a great price. In this message we examine what happened to a sinning nation, and how judgment might look as our nation feels the wrath of God.
