The Lie That God Is More Tolerant Than He Was 1

August 13, 2007
Since many believe man evolved, so they think God has evolved. No longer mean, He is now a gentler, kinder God. And that is lie number two in our series about God: the lie that God is more tolerant than He used to be. Get set, because today, another myth is going to be debunked.

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.

For some reason, many of us would be more mindful of proper protocol in meeting the President than we would be in meeting God. We are learning that God can only be approached through the right mediator: and that mediator between God and man is Jesus Christ. Today: some final thoughts on the great lie that we can come to God in any way we want.

A lot of people think they can come to God any way they like, little realizing that He can only be approached in one way. Pause in your daily race of life and consider that what you think about God might be fundamentally wrong. Lay aside your preconceptions and listen to what God Himself says about how to find Him. Today: why coming to God only happens through the right sacrifice.

It is popular to think that we can approach God any way we like. "All roads lead to Rome," people say. Yeah, they say that. Trouble is, the Bible does not say that. In fact, it says quite the opposite. Far from offering a spiritual smorgasbord, the Bible thunders that there is only one way to approach the Almighty. Before you buy into "pick your favorite God," listen to today's broadcast.

If you believe a lie long enough, for you it becomes the truth. Many of us harbor falsehoods that can send us to hell. Please stop in your race of life long enough to consider that you may be among those who believe wrongly about God. This is serious stuff: nothing is more important than what you believe about Him.

Some see the gospel like the Augusta Golf Club - too exclusive. They would much rather have a menu of beliefs to choose from. "After all, you have your truth and I have mine," they say. Today, we will see that God only has one way to Himself, and it is a way He has designed. Our obligation: to believe what He has revealed about His Son, and thereby find eternal life.

Not even the most egotistical guru has ever said "I am the way, the truth, and the life." Only Jesus said that. Today: a challenge to those who say that Jesus was just another great teacher - He is either a liar, a madman, or God in the flesh. There are no other alternatives. What do you think of Jesus?

People accept the fact of only one speed of light, and only one moon around the earth. But only one way to God? Say that, and you are ignored at best, hated at worst. The claims of Jesus to be the exclusive path to eternal life forces us to decide: do I go with my instincts, or do I go with Jesus?

It is a force you cannot see, but you can certainly feel. It is everywhere, telling people what is OK for them to believe. That force is political correctness, and when it comes to the Christian faith, it is out in full strength. Today: how to witness in a day when people tolerate everything but the truth.

For two thousand years people have been trying to figure out what to do with Jesus Christ. Like Pilate, many reject Him. But others heed His call to believe in Him as the only One who can save them from the sins that separate them from God. Today: more answers to the crucial question many ask: "God yes, but why Jesus?"

Some people think that since "all roads lead to Rome," all religions must lead to God. This is an enormous mistake. If your life was at stake in a hospital, you would want the truth about your condition. Your life IS at stake, eternally. And finding the truth about your spiritual condition and its remedy has to be "job one." Today: more about why Jesus is the only road that leads to God.
