Paul wrote: “The preaching of the cross is to them that perish, foolishness, but to us…it is the power of God.” So how do you effectively take that cross to those who think it is foolish?

These days, polling data is king. In the mainstream media, truth seems to lie with the majority opinion. And so we are analyzing what people believe about the cross of Christ.

The cross is the centerpiece of history and the core of God’s redemptive agenda. We have been exploring God’s view of the cross, but today we will focus on man’s viewpoint. As we will soon see, the contrast is startling.

What happened on the cross of Christ was not just another static moment in time. In the Bible, we find that the cross existed in God’s mind from the beginning, and will exist in the endless future.

The cross of Jesus was in God’s mind from eternity past. Its benefits extend to eternity future. It is history’s great intersection; the place where God expressed His love to fallen mankind most clearly.

It is in the cross that we glory. But our eyes are often drawn to secondary things such as political advantage. That is why we need to have a clear view of how important the cross really is. Today we will learn what God the Father thinks of His Son’s cross.

Believers have a dual allegiance; we must obey both God and country. Sometimes these two mandates collide, leaving us to face some tough decisions. This message shares some guidance on keeping both allegiances in balance.
October 3, 2014
We need to learn one lesson well. Those who mix the cross and any nation’s flag do a disservice to both. For believers, keeping them distinct is the only way to fulfill our prime mission as ambassadors for Christ to a needy world.

We have all heard the call:  “Let’s take America back!”  Some would have us make political salvation our prime religious objective. We must avoid the temptation to put the cross and the flag on the same level.

When it comes to being citizens of both heaven and earth, believers running the race of life need to keep first things first. Stand by for some flying sparks, as Erwin Lutzer takes aim at those who equate Old Glory with the one place of true glory.
