Lie #3: Jesus Became The Christ, Part 1 of 2 (Slandering Jesus)

June 12, 2020

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.

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.

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.

The sad story of Judas reminds us that “Satan walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour…” Some say Christians cannot be demon-possessed. But others say they still can be demonically influenced. In any case, a non-believer is fair game for Satan to use, as he did Judas. In this message we learn what really happened during the Last Supper so long ago.

A few years ago an ancient “Gospel of Judas” document surfaced. Its purpose: to tell us about the “real Jesus.” In this document, Judas is a hero, and Jesus is a fanciful being taking on many forms as the need arises. Written by Gnostics, the reappearance of the gospel of Judas is just another attempt to undermine the Christian faith.

The return of Jesus to this earth will be the event of all time. When He comes, He will take control. And those who have loved and served him will be raised from the dead to greet him. Let’s hear the climactic conclusion to our series on “What We Believe.”

The Bible gives tantalizing details about a heavenly kingdom beyond all description, a New Jerusalem with streets of gold. In this message we begin a final chapter in “What We Believe,” and a peek through the mists of time into the timelessness of eternity.

One day Jesus will be united with His church at a great marriage supper of the Lamb in heaven. What that will be like is our focus in this message, as Pastor Lutzer wraps up his study of the church in our series “What We Believe.”

In Greek, the word is ekklesia, the “called-out ones.” In English, the word is “church,” and if you believe in Jesus, you’re “called out” to be separate from the values of our culture. That’s hard to do, but with the support of a local assembly, it becomes a lot easier.

It’s clear the devil is having a field day. Evil is running rampant. But a day is coming when a long- delayed sentence of doom will be carried out. In this message we’ll hear about Satan’s present activity, and then his ultimate end.
June 1, 2020
If the devil tempted us in a red suit with a pitchfork, we might laugh. But the real devil is clothed as an angel of light. Satan wants you to think he doesn’t exist. But the Bible says that he walks about like a roaring lion, seeking whom he may devour.
