Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The Lie That God Thinks Like We Do #1 of 4

August 22, 2007
Modern man sees himself as the highest intellect on this planet. Why he is so smart, he even invents his own gods. As you run today's race of life, get ready for a paradigm shift: guess what, God does not think like you do. Never has, never will. And this means we need to get on His page, not the other way around. For the details, stay tuned.

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.

Even to those in a fast pace of life, some mysteries should give us pause. The suffering of God is one such mystery. In the wake of the terrible tsunami in Asia, we all struggle with human suffering. Today, we will try to understand the suffering of God, and why that suffering brings meaning to our suffering as humans. Today's broadcast will expand your mind and heart, so stay with us.

Some theologians hold that God is without passion, that He has no feelings and therefore, cannot personally suffer. While these theologians theorize, let us see what the Bible says, finding evidence that God indeed can suffer, and has suffered, and what all of that means to you and me. The implications are profound.

All of us are in a race to go somewhere, or do something. Before you do, spend time to think some deep thoughts about God. Pause to ponder perhaps the deepest mystery of all: how God was affected by the sacrifice of His own Son. Was He passive, or did He weep? Today: why the emotions of God really matter.

Many Christians say they love God, but how many say they fear Him? They have lost the sense of God's righteous justice. As a result, they live as they like, claiming that Jesus will forgive whatever they do. After all, what is grace for? Today: get set for some powerful words to those who take sin lightly.

For too many of us, very little is permanent. Fads come, and fads go. We forget that God never changes. His love never changes, and His justice never changes. His opinion of our sin never changes either. Today: more on the lie that God is more tolerant than He used to be…a lie we must all renounce.

In the Old Testament, sin was judged quickly, and harshly. Nowadays it seems that sin goes virtually unpunished. Why? The answer lies in the distinction between God's character and His administration of creation. Today: why believing that God has changed is tantamount to believing a dangerous lie - one you cannot afford to believe.

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.

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.
