The Book We Trust, Part 2 of 3 (What We Believe)

May 25, 2018

When it comes to the Bible, at some point your doubts must give way to faith that it is what it says it is—the very word of God. It is the only book that can point the way across the chasm of death into eternity. In this message we find out why we can trust the Bible.

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 question the Bible’s authority. Can we rely on this ancient book? In this message, we begin a new series on the key doctrines that define Christianity, and why it’s rational to believe them. First, we learn why the Bible can be trusted.

Ancient Babylon’s leaders had no idea that their time was up. A festive party ended in the king’s death, and God’s judgment was served. Modern America also has no idea how many minutes are left on its ticking clock. Is there handwriting on the wall for us?

When God says a nation is doomed, that doom is certain. Belshazzar’s feast began with revelry and ended with Belshazzar dead. Babylon died with him, as might America if we don’t heed the warnings of God.

The judgment of God may be long in coming, but it can come with a vengeance. For ancient Babylon, that time came when Daniel foretold the doom of Babylon’s king. We in America should take heed, as his story might well be ours.

When the government tells you whom to worship, believers face an easy choice. The answer is simply “no, we will worship God.” Then we, like Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, have to be willing to face the consequences, whether God delivers us or not.

During persecution, some believers are spared while others go through torture and death. Some wonder why God doesn’t deliver all of His people, since He surely could. In this message we find the answer to a vexing problem we all face as we try to understand God.

Kings can get very mad when disobeyed. Daniel’s friends said “no” to Babylon’s king, and then were thrown into a fiery furnace. God does not always deliver his people from harm, but this time He did. And one king found out who was really in charge.

Every day, government pressure mounts on the Christian faith. How should believers react? We can look to a similar time of hardship long ago for guidance. The place was Babylon, and the minority Jews were facing government oppression.

Daniel’s friends went along with their Babylonian captors, but drew the line when their consciences told them to say “no.” Some life situations force us to make tough choices. In this message we learn how to live by the Bible’s principles when facing hard decisions.

When the government says do one thing, and the Bible tells us to do the opposite, what do we do? The answers are not always clear, since we are called to obey those who rule over us. How four men handled this in ancient Babylon can give us guidance.
