Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

We Are Called to Belong Part 1

January 4, 2014

We who run life’s race face an adversary. He is called the prince of darkness, and the devil. But we don’t have to let him block the track. His weapons are lying and deception. What’s our defense? Today, we begin a probing look at Satan, the serpent of paradise.

One Minute After You Die
Many people spend more time planning for a vacation than preparing for eternity. Perhaps it doesn't seem real that we will still exist—fully conscious and alive—beyond the grave. But it's true, and it calls for careful consideration. In this updated edition of One Minute After You Die, bestselling author Erwin Lutzer urges readers to study what the Bible says. Can near-death experiences teach us anything about life after death? How can we prepare for our own final moment? With 700,000 copies in print, this bestselling work makes an encouraging gift for believers and a tasteful word of caution for the undecided.

The enemies of the heterosexual family invariably deny the fundamental differences between the genders. This makes it easier for “Heather” to have “two mommies.” Yet the Bible teaches that kids need both moms and dads.

The foundation of any society is the family, because families produce the next generation. Making marriage work lies at the bedrock, and this requires understanding the roles and responsibilities of husband and wife.

The Psalmist cried out, “If the foundations are destroyed, what can the righteous do?”  (11:3). The family is under attack by the devil and his political cohorts, all determined to destroy marriage, your kids, and the moral values taught in the Scriptures.

Jesus said, “If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” Politics won’t change men’s hearts, even for those who pushed through recent court decisions undermining marriage.  Following Jesus by living a Cross-centered life is the key.

It’s unthinkable that two plus two could ever equal five. But more unthinkable are recent Supreme Court decisions in America, The Defense of Marriage Act?  Unconstitutional.  California’s Proposition 8 prohibiting gay marriage?  Again, unconstitutional.  Powerful politics from small sectors of society are determining our nation’s future.
December 30, 2013
Every major policy shift from government leaves a trail of implications, some for good, but sadly, many for evil. The US Supreme court has bowed to interest groups and found gay marriage as valid as heterosexual marriage.  The damage this will do to the youth of America is a story yet untold.

The U.S. Supreme Court chambers are adorned with a large display of the Ten Commandments. Recent decisions of the Supreme Court contradict the standards listed in those commands. The long road to American ruin is not only here, we are nearing its end.

The days before Christmas are busy with those last dashes to the mall. For merchants, it is another frenzy of selling. But there were no malls in Bethlehem; no lights, no friends.  Indeed, Christmas had a humble beginning.
December 25, 2013
December 25th was not Jesus’ actual birthday, but it is the date set aside long ago for us to honor that birth. For Mary His mother, that birth began a long period of pain and sorrow, a personal toll we seldom consider during this time of year. 
December 24, 2013
In a few days we will celebrate the central event in human history, the coming of Jesus to live among us. But while Christians now enjoy the benefits of Jesus’ birth, life, death and resurrection, there was one person who felt great pain when He came.
