Closer Than Skin: The Indwelling Presence of Christ

December 1, 2017

Theology_Matters Closer Than Skin: The Indwelling Presence of Christ Sunday school teachers sometimes speak of iniviting Jesus into our hearts with a picture of a red heart with a door in the middle.

The Disappointment of Christ

October 1, 2013

Male, Female, and the Image of God

March 1, 2017

The Heart of the Bible

August 1, 2013

Attributes of God: Holiness

September 1, 2004

Theology_Matters Attributes of God: Holiness “Suppose for a moment you were allowed to enter heaven without holiness,” the nineteenth-century evangelical leader J. C. Ryle once asked. “What would you do? What possible enjoyment would you feel there? To which of all the saints would you join yourself, and by whose side would you sit down?

Divine Judgment

August 1, 2011

Theology_Matters Divine Judgment The phrase “Day of the Lord” is often used in Scripture to refer to a period of divine judgment.

Words Of Hope

January 1, 2015

Theology_Matters Words Of Hope Few statements in the Gospels are as chilling as Jesus’ cry from the cross recorded in Matthew 27:46 and Mark 15:34: “My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?” These words seem to be a cry of despair. But upon closer examination, the context reveals that they are actually an expression of hope. The fourth...
