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.

Entertainment has sunk to new lows. To a large degree, movies, popular music, and TV have become a wasteland. How can a Christian discern what to watch or listen to? Is it time now to toss out the large-screen TV?

Where is the power of God most evident? In a healed tumor, or in a life changed from the inside out? Those with discernment know that the power of the Gospel far outweighs the power seen in miracles, signs, and wonders.

Miracles seem to happen often, and almost everybody wants one. Whose heart isn’t moved by seeing someone in a wheelchair desperate to walk again? Yet is it possible that these so-called miracles could really be a form of demonic deception?
September 11, 2019
Modern-day false prophets promise blessing without repentance, and prosperity for all who send a gift. Some TV preachers lead many astray. But how can we tell when teaching is off the mark?

Television and the internet sell what people want to buy. Some ministers use it to sell false doctrines and millions eat it up. How can believers discern and separate truth from error when listening to religious teaching on screen?
September 9, 2019
There is no room for error or mere opinion when your soul is at stake. What you and I need is the truth, and nothing but the truth. Let’s consider the core components of the Gospel, and why any teaching that omits them or distorts them is heresy.
September 6, 2019
If you watch much religious TV, you are likely to be confused about which doctrines are true and which are false. We simply must return to the standard against which all teaching can be measured. Doctrines impact our eternal destiny, so we must be students of the Word of God, distinguishing truth from error.

Jesus taught us to not judge a small splinter in someone else’s eye without first removing the large wood beam from our own eye. That principle from Matthew 7 is our focus in this message. Have you checked your own eye lately?
September 4, 2019
In our day, error is often mixed with truth, so wise believers sift what they see, think, and hear through a filter of discernment. This message is a foundational study in Matthew 7 to help us know when, and how, to judge what we see.
September 3, 2019
We’re called to run life’s race on the high ground of God’s Word. We must discern right from wrong and truth from error. Where else can we go? We need the Bible. Otherwise, we’ll have little impact on a world in dire need of Jesus.
