Studying end times theology inevitably raises many questions. What is the Great Tribulation? Who is the Antichrist? When are the last days? And shouldn?t we just ask God to airlift us out when times get tough? A closer look at Revelation chapter 3 reveals that we?re living in those last days now ? in a unique time in history that can be referred to as ?the already, but not yet.?
Children often pass blame and point fingers to avoid punishment. But in the early chapters of Genesis, we find that adults can play the blame game too. The story of Adam and Eve?s fall in the Garden of Eden features the very first lie ever told, the first bad decision ever made and the first breach of man?s contract with his Creator.
Luther once stated that God?s Word will either keep us from sin, or sin will keep us from God?s Word. And, in fact, Satan is counting on that to be true! Our enemy has been planting seeds of doubt into the hearts of believers since the beginning. And while he may no longer come in the form of a serpent, he is still looking for ways to intrude into our lives today.
For centuries, Christians have debated about the best way to approach our fallen world. Should we hide from it or perhaps just ignore it? The reality is that a spiritual war is constantly waging between the powers of good and evil and as believers, there is no hiding or ignoring it?we are called to engage in that war, armed with the truth of God?s Word as our weapon.
In a society obsessed with personal rights and freedoms, it?s counter-cultural to imagine that human beings could possibly be in bondage to anyone or anything. But Scripture tells us that we are just that ? we are, in fact, salves to sin. The good news is that true, spiritual freedom is possible and today, we?ll find out how!
In the book of Ephesians, Paul uses a medical metaphor to describe the truly hopeless state of humanity, apart from God?s grace. Does he describe us as spiritually bedridden or maybe terminally ill? Paul?s diagnosis may be bleak, but today we?ll discover that, because of God?s ultimate plan, our spiritual condition is not hopeless after all.
We often hear the term ?peer pressure? and assume it?s a challenge faced only by teenagers with pushy friends and low self-esteem. The reality, though, is that all of us are faced daily with worldly temptations that fight for our attention and our allegiance. And if we?re not equipped and prepared to resist it, we can be easily blindsided by sin.
Just as we can?t actually hear silence because it is simply the absence of noise, it is difficult to define evil without referencing a standard of goodness. God is that ultimate standard and Adam?s sin was a disruption to God?s good world. Thanks for joining us today as Dr. Goligher walks us through the history and theology of the Genesis story that unfolded in the Garden of Eden.
Some people are particularly interested in tracking their biological history through geologies and family trees. As Christians, we should be interested in understanding the background of our spiritual family. Who is this God we serve and why did he create us? In this broadcast of No Falling Word, Dr. Goligher will break down the details for us in a message entitled, ?The Anatomy of a Fall.?
If all the world?s a stage and life is like a play, then temptation has a major casting role in the story of our lives. In fact, this one influencing force has molded and shaped much of human history ? right from the very beginning. When we properly understand the origin and impact of temptation, we can better face this fallen world, armed with the power to resist the enemy.
