Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

When Darkness is Called Light, and Light, Darkness, Part 1 of 4 (The Church in Babylon)

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.

Jeremiah 2:13 says that Israel forsook God, the fountain of living waters, and hewed out broken cisterns for themselves which can hold no water. Because of this, God’s judgment fell. Have we in the modern church hewed out broken cisterns?

In the divided kingdom, the northern tribes of Israel had been carried into captivity by the Assyrians. In the south, the prophet Jeremiah told Judah of God’s coming judgment. Despite a clear warning, the people clung to their idols and did not repent. We do the same in America.

After long national disobedience, God judged Israel by having Babylon carry them off into captivity. They became a minority in a pagan land, just as Christians are fast becoming a minority in America. The parallels are crucial to understand.

The power of God was on full display when He raised His Son from the dead. Jesus paid the debt of sin for us and conquered sin’s penalty of death. In this message, Dr. Lutzer challenges us to assess our personal relationship with Christ.

All four gospels tell the story of the death and resurrection of Jesus. In John chapter 20, the risen Christ revealed Himself to the disciples, beginning with Mary Magdalene. In this message we learn that Jesus was raised for us.

The Romans who crucified Jesus were very good at making sure a man was dead. And soldiers guarded the tomb to make sure He stayed dead. Nevertheless, nothing could withstand the power of God as He brought His Son back to life in brilliant glory. 
March 28, 2018
Jesus endured three hours of agony on a Roman cross, giving up his life to atone for the sins of the world. In this message we remember the final moments in the life of Christ, and what that great transaction accomplished for us.
