QUOTE(s) of the WEEK

“As you perhaps know, I haven’t always been a Christian. I didn’t go to religion to make me feel happy. I always knew a bottle of Port would do that. If you want a religion to make you feel really comfortable, I certainly don’t recommend Christianity.” C.S. Lewis

WHY ARE SO MANY CHRISTIANS BIBLICALLY ILLITERATE?

THE SCIENTIFIC DISCOVERY OF GRAVITATIONAL WAVES

“Scientists announce discovery of clear gravitational wave signal, ripples in spacetime first predicted by Albert Einstein.”

As I read the article and considered the size of our universe, I was humbled at the thought of how big God is. “The heavens declare the glory of God, and the sky above proclaims his handiwork; Day to day pours out speech, and night to night reveals knowledge.” (Psalm 19:1-2)

THIS SUNDAY, 2/14

Choir: The Love of God
Preacher: Jim

 

GREAT NEWS FOR THOSE WHO SIN (that would be all of us 🙂 )

“My dear children, I write this to you so that you will not sin. But if anybody does sin, we have an advocate with the Father—Jesus Christ, the Righteous One. He is the atoning sacrifice for our sins, and not only for ours but also for the sins of the whole world.” (1 John 2:1-2)

John MacArthur commenting on this passage: “Perhaps a modern concept of the term ‘advocate’ would be ‘defense attorney’. Although Satan prosecutes believers night and day before the Father due to our sin (Rev. 12:10), Christ’s high priestly ministry guarantees not only sympathy but also acquittal.”

ARE ALL RELIGIONS TRUE?

“Why do we make the catastrophic error of thinking that all religions are right…?”

“All religions are not the same. All religions do not point to [the God of the Bible.] All religions do not say that all religions are the same. At the heart of every religion is an uncompromising commitment to a particular way of defining who God is – or is not – and accordingly, of defining life’s purpose.”

“Anyone who claims that all religions are the same betrays not only an ignorance of all religions but also a caricatured view of even the best-known one. Every religion at its core is exclusive.”

Ravi Zacharias, Jesus Among Other Gods

CONFIDENT FAITH IN CHRISTIANITY

From the article: “The Christian faith and worldview offers the best explanation of ultimate reality, the human condition, and salvation through a cumulative case of evidence. Cosmology, biology, and history are three principle lines of evidence that offer support and build a cumulative case that the Christian faith is well-founded.” Dr. Douglass Groothuis
