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.

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.

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. In this message, our focus is on an ancient tomb in an ancient city, and on the purported evidence that Jesus never rose from the dead.

We hear it frequently: a new archeological find supposedly “disproves” the biblical account. Some have even claimed that the bones of Jesus and His family have been found. However, these “discoveries” turn out to have nothing to do with Jesus, or they are simply lies.

In our day, few people see sin as a big deal. They dismiss sin as simply “mistakes.” Many people will do anything to avoid the horror of the cross of Christ. Only that sacrifice removes the stain of the sins we bear before a holy God. In this message we will look at the redemptive plan of God as brought to focus on that cruel cross.

Conspiracy theorists tout all kinds of wild schemes and fill the internet with their blogs. For some time, the theory has circulated that Jesus did not die on the cross—He merely fainted and woke up in a tomb. This is another lie about Jesus, a lie that tries to nullify the whole reason for His coming: to be a sacrifice for sin.

The Bible is clear: Jesus was born of a virgin and had no earthly father. In terms of salvation, that’s critical. The sinful nature we all share was never passed on to Jesus, so He could then be the perfect sacrifice for sin. Without that perfect sacrifice, none of us has any hope of seeing eternal life with the Father.

People with a troubled past are said to have “skeletons in their closet.” Some say that Jesus has a big one in His. Some who look at the life of Jesus cannot accept any supernatural factors. Thus, the virgin birth of Christ is dismissed as a myth. For these people, Jesus has a dark secret: who was his real father?

Why do people tell lies? Usually, because they have something to hide. And deep down, all of us have sin to hide. People are telling new lies about Jesus these days—lies that hide their need for a Savior. Pastor Lutzer’s current series sheds light on six of these lies, and in this message we’re focusing on the lie that “Jesus became the Christ.”

Some say that the Jesus who changed history was a just a man around whom many legends developed after his death. They say His disciples invented all sorts of stories to turn a simple teacher into the Messiah. In other words, the Jesus of history was given the role of Christ by His followers. In this message we look at a third major lie being propagated by those who reject the real Jesus.

The idea of “only one way to God” seems narrow-minded to many people. It is a common belief that all roads lead to heaven. But God has revealed one and only one way to Himself and that is through the blood of His Son, Jesus Christ. Modern spiritual leaders decry any absolutes, except the right to be happy, healthy, and wealthy. Media stars say “God’s not fussy,” and too many of us believe them.

When blindly following their leader, lemmings walk right off a cliff. Many people today are heading for an eternal cliff. These people place their faith in the teachings of modern prophets and gurus—often popular figures in the media. They are promised health, wealth, and friendly angels to help them. Little is said about sin and righteousness. In this message we expose the lie that Jesus is merely one of many ways to God.
