It's hard to fathom the existence of hell, so much so that today's leading denominations want to explain it away. This week, despite its difficulty, Pastor Lutzer discusses the doctrine of hell.
"After this I heard what seemed to be the loud voice of a great multitude in heaven, crying out, 'Hallelujah! Salvation and glory and power belong to our God, for his judgments are true and just.'" - Revelation 19:1–2a
Is there an age of accountability? How does God judge children who die? What does a just God do with babies who pass away? This week, Pastor Lutzer encourages us to trust God's justice even in life's most difficult circumstances.
"The Rock, his work is perfect, for all his ways are justice. A God of faithfulness and without iniquity, just and upright is he." - Deuteronomy 32:4
The minute you begin to add to the Gospel, you are actually subtracting from it.This week, Pastor Lutzer speaks to us about the truth that belongs only to the Father.
"Sanctify them in the truth; your word is truth. As you sent me into the world, so I have sent them into the world. And for their sake I consecrate myself, that they also may be sanctified in truth." - John 17:17–19
Error that is contrary to God's truth may work for a time—but you must ask, "What does it work for, and for how long?" Let's look at the difference between false "truth" and God's truth.
"Of this you have heard before in the word of the truth, the gospel, which has come to you, as indeed in the whole world it is bearing fruit and increasing—as it also does among you, since the day you heard it and understood the grace of God in truth." - Colossians 1:5b-6
