This week’s lesson explains why we shouldn’t raise tax rates or “soak the rich.” It counters the class warfare being waged by the current administration. To start out, go to the Three Reasons section, where I provide three short videos on the following topics:
Taxing the rich discourages investment and will cause tax revenues to fall. Taxing the rich discourages spending. If we taxed the rich at 100%, it would not reduce the deficit.
In this presentation Robin Schumacher explains how there can be only one way to God.
How Can There Be Only One Way To God from Robin Schumacher
In this presentation Robin Schumacher makes the following points:
A look at exclusivity All religions are exclusive Exclusivity is common in relationships in government (democracy versus communism) in economic policy (capitalism versus Marxism) Teachings on life and death Atheism Seek self-fulfillment No life after death Hinduism Seek way of knowledge, devotion, good works Cycles of reincarnation Buddhism Seek four noble truths [...]
Author Lee Strobel explains why Jesus is the only way to God.
Here are the points that Lee Strobel makes:
Jesus did a very unpopular thing revealed in John 14:6 where he said, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.” Anybody can make a claim like that but only Jesus can back it up because he rose from the dead. This gives Jesus special credibility.
Does this make Christians narrow minded? Absolutely not. When a pilot lands [...]
Do all religions only contain part of the truth, not the whole truth? Is Christianity narrow-minded if it claims the whole truth? Dr. Timothy Keller, pastor of Redeemer Church in Manhattan, addresses The Veritas Forum at UC Berkeley.
Dr. Timothy Keller makes the following points in his video:
Some people say, “You can’t say that Jesus is the only way,” because they think that all religions are equally wrong. Each may provide little bits of wisdom, but none see the whole picture. They say that all religions only see [...]
Which religion is better: one in which God approaches us or one in which prophets help us approach God? Dr. Timothy Keller, pastor of Redeemer Church in Manhattan, addresses The Veritas Forum at UC Berkeley.
Are all religions equally right? Is there more than one way to heaven?
The leaders of all the non-Christian religions basically say, “I am a prophet to help you find God.” In contrast, the leader of the Christian religion, Jesus, is the only one who says “I am God come to find you.”
This week’s lesson explains why Jesus is the only way to heaven. To start out, go to the Three Reasons section, where I provide three short videos on the following topics:
Exclusivity is common in life. The Law of Non-Contradiction shows that all religions are not the same. The Bible says that Jesus is the only way.
Our country was founded by Christians. One outstanding example was Elias Boudinot. Learn more about him below.
Elias Boudinot (1740-1821) was a lawyer, colonel in the Continental Army (1777-1778), president of the Continental Congress (1782), elected to Congress (after adoption of the Constitution) from New Jersey (1789-1795), and Director of the US Mint (1795-1805). Boudinot also served as the first president of the American Bible Society (1816) and wrote a scathing rebuttal of Thomas Paine’s The Age of Reason. 1
The American Bible Society was established in 1816 and exists to [...]
Lee Strobel interviews author Randy Alcorn, who explains the reality of being in God’s presence. Watch the following video to learn more…
In the video Randy Alcorn makes the following points:
Revelation 22 speaks about seeing God face to face. We will see Him in all of His greatness. People who say it will be boring in heaven don’t know God. They don’t know how fascinating God is. Everything we love and enjoy is derived from who He is.
3No longer will there be any curse. The throne of [...]
Watch this video about 4-year-old Colton Burpo’s near-death experience and visit to heaven.
As described in the book Heaven is for Real, four-year-old Colton Burpo required emergency surgery in 2003 for a misdiagnosed appendix that had ruptured three days earlier and was spreading infection. As they were taking him away, Colton kept saying, “Daddy don’t let them take me; Daddy don’t let them take me.” His father Todd, pastor of Crossroads Wesleyan Church in Imperial, Nebraska, was angry with God and screamed, “Is this how you treat your pastors?”
We all wonder what lies beyond death’s door. Is there another world, another place? See what Dr. Irwin Lutzer, Senior Pastor of The Moody Church, has to say.
How long is eternity? It’s not comprehensible. “But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: With the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8 NIV).
Some people think that heaven will be one long church service. But, the Bible teaches that heaven is a place of activity. Pastor [...]
