I Take It From His Hand

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Some time ago, someone handed me a poem which was a great blessing to me personally, and I have shared it in some messages I have preached recently. Since it has been a great encouragement to me and to others, I’m passing it along to you. Read it carefully, reflect on its theology, so that those trials which come our way will be more easily accepted. After all, our trials do pass through the hands of our heavenly Father.

The One Resolution We Should Make—and Keep!

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

As we enter 2017, millions of us will be making New Year’s resolutions that we will probably break before the end of January. Some promise themselves to lose weight, to exercise more, or to break a stubborn habit. Others, weary of broken promises, won’t make any resolutions at all.

But there is one resolution we all should make: that we will not begin a single day in the New Year without giving ourselves to God, meditating on one chapter of God’s Word, and praying “Father, glorify yourself in my life today at my expense.” For years I’ve been praying ...

Our Visit to Utah

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

This fall, Rebecca and I visited Salt Lake City to help promote KUTR, a Christian radio station that is broadcasting the gospel in Utah. We were gratified to learn that among their lineup of programs was Running to Win. We were told that many Mormons listen to the station in privacy, afraid of being accused of apostasy.

While there, we met several men and women who had been converted to Christ out of the Mormon faith, and who shared with us their experience of being a part of this cultic religion. We discovered that polygamy is still practiced more widely ...

Goodbye, Rob Sherman - My Friendship with a Departed Atheist

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

I considered the well-known atheist Rob Sherman a friend. We had lunch together several times, and I invited him to a debate here at The Moody Church in April of 2011, which can be viewed here. Regardless of who “won” the debate, I am more concerned about the eternal destiny of my friend.

On Saturday December 10, I was saddened to learn that Rob had been killed in a single-engine plane accident in Marengo, a distant Chicago suburb. Rob, a passionate pilot, was flying the plane when it crashed.

I enjoyed my friendship with Rob. He was personable and respectful ...

Is the Reformation Over?

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Someone has said that for many Christians, church history began with the first Billy Graham crusade. They think that as long as we derive our beliefs from the Bible, we can ignore the two-thousand year history of God’s people. Church history, they reason, really only benefits scholars and historians. What possible relevance could the past have for the present?

How easy it is to forget that we are heirs of a rich history that began in the New Testament and continues on to this present day. To study church history is to study the ways of God; it is to ...

In Defense of Wheaton College

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

Wheaton College has come under fire for suspending professor Larycia Hawkins for what she wrote on her Facebook page when she explained her decision to wear a hijab to identify with her Muslim neighbors. In her words, “I stand in religious solidarity with Muslims because they, like me, are people of the book…And as Pope Francis stated, we worship the same God.” The College has placed her on administrative leave because her comments “raise significant questions regarding the theological implications of statements made about the relationship of Christianity to Islam.”

As might be expected, critics have shifted into ...

A Commentary on the Paris Attacks

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

ISIS has won another victory in terrorizing the Western world with its particular brand of Islamic extremism. They have claimed responsibility for Friday night’s series of coordinated attacks in Paris which killed 129 people and injured more than 350, over 100 of them critically. As we think of those killed, including nearly 90 people systematically slaughtered while at a concert, we mourn with the rest of the world and join them in condemning this evil act. Our hearts go out to the victims and their families, and to all the people in Paris who are undoubtedly struggling with fear and ...

A Time for Tears

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

The decision of the Supreme Court to legalize same-sex marriage in all fifty states is not only a direct violation of Scripture, but is contrary to natural law. This decision will accelerate the disintegration of the family, the sexual confusion of our children, and our continuing descent into moral bankruptcy.

time for tears

Make no mistake: the battle for freedom of religion will now shift into high gear. Churches that staunchly refuse to marry gay couples will be targeted. Our right for tax exemption will be challenged; the use of our facilities for same-sex weddings will eventually become mandatory.

God was grieved with ...

Response to Indiana's Religious Freedom Bill

By Dr. Erwin W. Lutzer

So, what’s next?

With stunning rapidity, the United States as we once knew it is gone; every day another domino falls to the liberal agenda. The LGBT community has proven that their convictions trump religious freedom and clearly they have veto power over laws they do not favor. They can also block the appointment of any CEO that gives the slightest hint that they believe in traditional marriage (you do remember how CEO Brendan Eich resigned under pressure because eight years earlier he had given $1,000 to proposition #8 in California that opposed same-sex marriage).

If you have been ...
