Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

In Competition With God, Part 2 of 2 (The Ten Commandments)

July 7, 2020

It’s in the nature of man to worship something, even deities made of wood and stone—or money, technology, and power. But God makes it clear that we humans have a Creator who will not tolerate any idols, even when the idol is ourselves. In this message we learn why the first commandment requires that nothing replace God in our allegiance.

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.

Philosophers have long wrestled with the root cause of evil. One major cause is our enemy Satan, who seeks to destroy in any way he can. And yes, people can be influenced by the devil to perpetrate evil deeds.

Those who have a conscience can feel shame: that sense of embarrassment when caught in a sinful act. But there’s also the painful shame that victims of sexual abuse bear, that isn’t their fault. How should we deal with shame?

To understand why people become sexual abusers, we need to understand the “why” of dysfunctional families. First, we look at a Bible family scandalized by abuse and its damage. Then, we’ll see how God can heal the deep scars left behind.

Sexual abuse does terrible damage. Relationships all throughout the victim’s life suffer due to early experiences children should never have. But there’s hope for the abused, and even for the abuser.

The truth of the resurrection of Jesus is so transforming that its enemies will do anything to suppress it. Thus, some clam that the bones of Jesus have been found in an old box.
