Running To Win

Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

When Beliefs Collide #3 of 3

November 9, 2007
Despite the wide variety of Christian denominations these days, you will find some common elements in them all. Baptism and the Lord's Supper are two sacraments all Christians observe in one way or another. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells us what we share as fellow believers, despite our differences, and gives us a big-picture view of the church from God's perspective.

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.

It is like going to an ice cream shop. If you are looking for what church to attend, there are lots of flavors available. Thousands of denominations and internal sub-denominations reflect often contradictory versions of the Christian faith. Today, Dr. Lutzer helps us sort through the complexity and key in on what really matters when selecting a local assembly of believers to join.

Some critics of Christianity look at its thousands of denominations and splinter groups that call themselves Christian and they wonder "where is the unity that Jesus talked about?" There is no doubt that opinions and Bible interpretations vary widely. So how should a believer handle the fact that the faith is represented in so many different ways? To find out, stay with us.

Persecution of Christians is on the way up in America, giving today's believers a taste of what the early church had to face. The word of God gives clear direction on how Christians should to respond to an antagonistic culture. It also tells us how not to respond. Today, Dr. Lutzer summarizes how to live in a godly way in an increasingly godless society.

There is no doubt: Christians are under attack. The media and current culture combine to belittle those with faith in Jesus. So how should genuine believers react? Nowadays it seems easier to keep a low profile, go quietly to church, and not make a fuss. But this is hardly obeying the Great Commission. Today: another look at the conflicts inherent in being a child of God these days.

Many Americans are up in arms that our soldiers are dying in Iraq. They feel that there is nothing over there worth dying for. There was a time when there were things worth dying for...times like the middle ages, when corrupt religion had to be confronted by true believers who often paid with their lives. Conflict is truly inevitable. As much as we would like to "just get along," there come times when we cannot.

America has been called a melting pot...of cultures and races, for sure, and these days, it is a melting pot for religions. Trouble is, varying religions do not melt together very well. Despite America's Judeo-Christian roots, it is now necessary to censor the Ten Commandments even when they hang over courtroom benches. Today: a story of conflict, and how to handle it.

Think about this: what would happen if, every time we met someone, we treated the encounter as a divine appointment? It might change our whole approach to other people. God uses seemingly chance meetings as points of contact for the gospel. That is what happened in Acts chapter 8, and what can happen in the chapter of God's work we are writing today.

Ever wonder if your coming to faith in Christ was an accident, just coincidence, or maybe just a good choice on your part? Not a chance. "Salvation is of the Lord," the Bible says, and that includes the circumstances of your conversion. In Acts chapter 8 God went to unusual lengths to get the gospel to a needy Ethiopian. And He did the same for you and for me.

These days, people look to their personal digital assistants, or PDAs, to find out what is next on their busy schedules. Keeping appointments is crucial for business success. But God has a heavenly PDA for His people, and sometimes makes sudden changes in His list of things for us to do. Today: how the Holy Spirit sets the agenda for a child of God.

While we focus everyday on the here and now, eternity awaits us. Those who know Christ have a glorious future ahead of them. The doorway to heaven is the death of the believer. When Stephen was martyred, he had a vision of Jesus welcoming him home. For those who fear death, this can be your vision as well.
