In the wake of natural disasters, we all struggle with human suffering. When we try to understand the suffering of God, we find that His suffering brings meaning to our suffering as humans.

Living With Your Passions
In a hyper-sexualized culture, sex is either reduced to pleasure-seeking or conflated with our identity. But God designed us as sexual beings for emotional and spiritual intimacy whose highest calling is to worship Him. In this revised edition, Pastor Erwin Lutzer draws on forty years of ministry experience to present a rationale for sexual purity. He gives an honest answer to the sexual pressures we face like extramarital relationships, self-gratification, same-sex attraction, and more. As desire-driven creatures, we don't have to pursue happiness at the expense of character. With our identity grounded in Christ, we can live victoriously with our passions.

Some theologians hold that God is without passion and cannot personally suffer. Let’s see what the Bible says. We’ll find evidence that God can suffer and has suffered.

Pause to ponder perhaps the deepest mystery of all: how was God affected by the sacrifice of His own Son? Was He passive, or did He weep? The emotions of God really do matter.

Many Christians have lost the sense of God’s righteous justice. As a result, we live as we wish, claiming that Jesus will forgive whatever we do. We need powerful words for those of us who take sin lightly.

God never changes. His love never changes, and His opinion of our sin never changes either. Let’s renounce the lie that God is more tolerant than He used to be.

It often seems like sin goes virtually unpunished. Yes, God is patient. But the truth is that God will still judge sin, and if we begin to believe that God has somehow changed, we have bought into a dangerous lie.

Many believe God has evolved. No longer mean, He is now a gentler, kinder God. But that’s another common lie about the nature of God. Let’s expose and correct this myth. 
July 16, 2018
God can only be approached through the right mediator, and that mediator is Jesus Christ. It is a lie that we can draw near to God however we want. 
July 13, 2018
Pause a moment and consider that what you think about God might be fundamentally wrong. Lay aside your preconceptions and listen to what God says about how to find Him, and the necessity of the right sacrifice.  
July 12, 2018
The Bible thunders that there’s only one way to approach the Almighty. Before we accept the lie that we can simply come to God as we choose, we must hear the statement of Jesus: “No one comes to the Father except through me.” 
July 11, 2018
Sometimes we need to stop long enough to ask, “Are we among those who believe wrongly about God?” This is a serious question, because nothing is more important than what you believe about Him. We must come rightly into God’s presence.
