During times of crisis, many may turn to atheism and renounce any underlying meaning to personal and communal suffering. What do you say in response? How do you reassure your own heart when doubts arise? In Pastor Lutzer's experience this is more often a matter of the heart than the head. Join us today as we take an honest look at these difficult truths together.
In today's episode of "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," we look at two earthquakes described in scripture. One accompanies God's terrifying presence on Mount Sinai and the other, the completion of Christ's atoning work where the separation between God and His children is finally and forever overcome.
When we read passages like Revelation 20 our response should be an overwhelming desire to bring the hope of Christ to the lost. Let us not avoid the unpleasant warnings included in scripture but rather share them unflinchingly, always expounding on the importance of being found in Christ—free from condemnation and risen again to newness of life!
Who could have guessed, around this time last year, all that the future would hold? In much the same way, the events described in Revelation chapter 6 will come on a world unprepared. In this week's episode of "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," Pastor again addresses the question of whether the pandemic is a direct result of God's judgment. We learn that nothing we see today compares to what is coming and the time is short to turn to Christ.
We don't have to look very far to see the terrible effects of sin around us. The natural world can be beautiful one day and wreak havoc and terror the next. Today, Pastor guides us through Romans 8, where we learn why creation groans, longing to be rescued from its sin-cursed state.
In today's episode, Pastor addresses a question he is very frequently asked—"are natural disasters and pandemics a direct judgment from God?" Join us as we consider the vital truths scripture offers regarding our present crisis.
We're continuing our study on "Pandemics, Plagues and Natural Disasters: What is God saying to us?" This week we take a look at two key lessons from scripture that God wants to teach us in a time of crisis.
When we are hit with a crisis it can turn our lives upside down. Suddenly we discover that the things we prioritize under normal circumstances have no real value in the light of eternity. In today's episode of "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," we learn that a crisis can be exactly what it takes for God to get His message across to us.
In our current series on "5 Minutes with Pastor Lutzer," we're discussing the mystery of the will of God in light of the global pandemic—gleaning wisdom from the book of Job. In today's episode, Pastor shares the testimony of a modern-day "Job"—a true story of a Christian couple thrown into unspeakable grief and how they offered up praise to God in the midst of their storm.
When a crisis strikes, whether personal or public, some decide to fall back on the notion that God may not be all-powerful, thereby decreasing his culpability. In today's episode we learn that true comfort is found in the truth that no disaster can befall us without His express permission.
