The Fatherhood of God

August 1, 2009

Theology_Matters The Fatherhood of God The church was not the first to address God as Father.

Israel was criticized for calling God “my Father” and “my friend...

God of the Nations

November 1, 2010

Theology_Matters God of the Nations The Old Testament books of 1 and 2 Kings complement 1 and 2 Samuel, which recount the rise of Israel’s first two kings, Saul and David. The books of Kings describe how David’s realm split into two and then eventually fell. They are theological commentaries as much as they are history. They trace the failure...

The Wrath of God

September 1, 2012

Theology_Matters The Wrath of God It is rare today to hear a sermon that focuses on the wrath of God. Some may even think that the very idea of anger is incompatible with the gospel’s message of God’s mercy and grace.

The Justice of God

July 1, 2010

It also meant that...

Question and Answer

June 1, 2008

Does God hear the prayer of really bad people? There are some really wicked people in the world, and I can’t imagine that a holy God would ever listen to people like Hitler, Mussolini, or Saddam Hussein. Question and Answer The Bible seems to indicate that God not only listens to wicked people but also responds to right prayers. The Bible...

The Promises of God

October 26, 2014

The Promises of God Promises don’t seem worth much in our culture. Marriage vows are broken. Politicians renege on campaign pledges. Coworkers fail to follow through on their word. How can we trust a promise to provide us with any comfort? Today’s reading describes another source of comfort for us in difficult days: the promises of God. Unlike...

The Lamb of God

December 7, 2019

The Lamb of God For our wedding day, Julia and I chose the music carefully. We wanted the ceremony to be worshipful, focused ultimately on God and not us. For this reason, one of the songs we picked was “Lamb of God” by Twila Paris. It doesn’t mention marriage, but it does celebrate the amazing love of God: “Your gift of love they crucified.

The Altar of God

October 29, 2019

The Altar of God The “stolen goods” lawsuit threatened in yesterday’s illustration was not the first time this has happened. The Talmud tells a story about a similar claim lodged in the court of Alexander the Great.
