God In The Garden
March 28, 2021
Before Jesus was betrayed, He went to a garden called Gethsemane to pray. Even though He was fully God, His humanity was on full display. Jesus asked for the company of His closest friends as He prayed. The time had come for Christ to take upon Himself the sins of this world and the wrath of the Father. He accepted this cup from the hands of the Father so that we could be restored to God.
Responding Courageously to Our Culture’s Assault on Christianity
Each day, we watch America turn further from Christian values and the core principles of liberty. It’s frustrating to feel we can’t assert biblical truth without facing condemnation, and it’s fearful to witness outrage and victimhood replace respect and reason. Amidst this dissent, how can we not only stay rooted in our own faith, but continue to publicly testify for Jesus?
In We Will Not Be Silenced, Pastor Erwin Lutzer prepares you to live out your convictions against a growing tide of hostility. Through this book you will gain a better understanding of nonbelievers’ legitimate hurts and concerns regarding issues like racism, sexism, and poverty—and identify the toxic responses secular culture disguises as solutions. In the process, you’ll see how you can show compassion and gentleness to those outside of the faith without affirming their beliefs.
We Will Not Be Silenced will ready you to move beyond fear and boldly accept the challenge of representing Christ to a watching world that needs Him now more than ever before.
