D.L. Moody: A Man for Our Times

Dwight L. Moody most assuredly was a man for his times, but thanks to his legacy, he is a man for our times as well. He ministered in what is known as the Gilded Age, when the industrial revolution fueled economic growth and investors were striving to make their millions. These were the days of Marshall Field, the Rothchilds, and Cyrus McCormick. As for Moody himself, he left his humble home …

The Demise Of Religious Freedom In America

By Erwin W. Lutzer

Before I speak about the ominous trends in America to curtail freedom of speech, let me tell you about Dr. Charles H. McVety, president of Canada Christian College in Toronto, whose television program was removed from the air because he had the temerity to preach against homosexuality. Later, he was allowed back on television, but now he has to submit his program to the Canadian Broadcast Standard Council every Wednesday for review by the censors on Thursday, and then, if approved, can be broadcast on Sunday. As far as I know this panel does not rule on programs that are …

The King Is Coming

By Erwin W. Lutzer

The King is Coming and We’ll be there for His Return!

At this time of year we look back to the manger, to the first appearance of the Son of God as man born of a woman, God in the flesh. But even as we look back, we should also look forward to His bodily return, when He will come a second time to bring us our ultimate salvation.

Please keep in mind that the physical Jesus who was laid in a manger as a baby, and who walked the earth as a man, is the same physical Jesus who …

Legacies

By Erwin W. Lutzer

Someone has well said, “Your reputation is written on your tombstone; your character is your legacy!” So, I must ask, what will our legacy be?

Everyone leaves a legacy. Some leave large (or small) sums of money; others are remembered for their vices or even for evils they have committed. When a Christian man died unexpectedly and later the family found a stash of pornographic magazines in his closet, his daughter was so devastated that she abandoned her Christian faith and lived a worldly life. Others might have had a more positive opinion of her father, but for her …

Marrying Someone Of A Different Faith

By Erwin W. Lutzer

Recently, our church receptionist let me know about a Christian woman who was seeking advice regarding a situation where her grandson was planning to marry a Jehovah’s Witness. I took the time to write a letter to her, and as I was doing so, I thought this could be of help to others facing similar situations. Below are some notes I jotted down for the letter I sent to her.

Point One:

Marrying someone who is of a different faith is a very bad idea. If anyone thinks they can persuade their future spouse to become a Christian, they’re almost …

Totally Yielded To God

By Erwin W. Lutzer

Why You Should Get to Know D.L. Moody …and what he would say to us today

Someone said these words:

He dropped out of school when he was 13, but inspired students at Cambridge University in England, and founded an internationally known school and church.

He once preferred to teach only children, because he was uncomfortable with adults due to his lack of education, but ended up being one of the most persuasive orators of his day.

He was born on a remote farm in rural Massachusetts, but became famous for conquering whole cities for Christ. He was …
