Running To Win

When Loyalties Collide #2 of 3

November 16, 2007
Someone has said that nothing is certain except death and taxes. Throughout all of history, governments have been taking your money. In Jesus' day, tax collectors were despised. After all, they took Jewish cash and gave it to the hated Roman occupiers. The wisdom of Jesus was never more clear than when He answered the question of who owes what to whom. Today: our true loyalties.

Christians, Politics, And The Cross
We are living in a time when we desperately need to engage our culture with the only message that has any hope of transforming it. As Pastor Lutzer explores various approaches to the relationship between the state and the church, he reminds us that spiritual redemption, not political reformation, is at the heart of God’s agenda. Only the church, not a political party, can bear God’s message to a hurting world. Click below to receive this book for a gift of any amount or call Moody Church Media at 1.800.215.5001.

For a long time, Christians could comfortably wave the American flag, since their values were represented in "Old Glory." Now the government is beginning to repress the freedoms Christians once had, favoring the agendas of those desiring same-sex marriage and unrestricted abortion. When the red, white and blue no longer blends with the cross of Christ, what do believers do? To find out, stay with us.

When cars collide, you get tangled wreckage that is soon cleared. But when people collide, the wreckage can be life-long. The story of mankind is a saga of conflict. Wars and oppression mark the centuries, and only a supernatural intervention of God can heal the wounds we inflict on each other. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells how one man resolved a lifetime of hatred within his own family.

Like snowflakes, no two people are alike. Those differences bring great variety, but they can also plant seeds of conflict. Each of us is wired from birth to put self first. Only the Spirit of God can smooth the rough edges and help us extend ourselves in blessing to others. Today, Dr. Lutzer tells the story of a cab driver with a horrid past, a man who needed a friend.

As someone has said, "The church is wonderful. I love the church, it is the people in the church that I cannot stand." Well, we are not in the Garden of Eden anymore. Frictions can occur even between believers, as disagreements and personal agendas rise to the surface. Today, Dr. Lutzer exposes a not-so-secret secret: Christians do not always get along.

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.

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.
