In Part 2 of 2 of Sin, Salvation, and Sanctification: A Blueprint for the 21st Century Church, we look at The World Changing Church.

We show how churches can affect true and lasting positive social change. This can only be accomplished by making people aware of sin which is the root cause of all of the world's problems.

From there we advocate that churches teach and preach the saving grace of God from sin. Lastly, we propose that...

In Part 1 of 2 of Sin, Salvation, and Sanctification: A Blueprint for the 21st Century Church, we look at The State of the 21st Century Church.

We examine how mainline denominations are continually becoming more like the culture in an effort to reach and change it.

While this approach sounds admirable in theory, it marks a grave departure from the gospel, and brings disastrous results as it fails acknowledge the root causes of the wo...

The world claims that Biblical Christianity and traditional societal values and gender roles keep women from expressing themselves, reaching goals and achieving success.

However, what if women actually like how God has designed them and enjoy living out His will? It is our belief that countless women do, and that they need not be afraid of that. Instead they can enjoy and celebrate it.

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we learn about the importance of keeping sin from beginning in us.

Micah said of the ancient Near East city of Lachish that it was "the beginning of the sin to the daughter of Zion." (Micah 1:13)

Lachish introduced the kingdom of Judah and Jerusalem to idol worship and other sins.

As such, God pronounced judgement on the city, and the Assyrian king Sennacherib captured it in 701 ...

In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review On the Incarnation by St. Athanasius and published by St. Vladimir's Seminary Press.

In this classic work of patristic literature, St. Athanasius expounds a wonderfully simple yet rich apology on Christ's incarnation, death and resurrection.

Though over 1,600 years old, On the Incarnation still stands as the high watermark of Greek Orthodox and Nicene theology.

It is fi...

    In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review The Whole Counsel of God: Why and How to Preach the Entire Bible by Tim Patrick and Andrew Reid, and published by Crossway.

    Sadly, not all churches preach the entire Bible. Often today sermons are topical, short and focus more on the highlights of scripture. However, just because it is easy to approach church programming in this manner does not mean that it is best way to fos...

    In this episode of our podcast series Going through Galatians we look at how Paul teaches us the immense eternal plan inherent in our salvation.

    Our salvation always pleases God, no matter when God has ordained for the day of our salvation to be. This is because it is the outworking of His great plan for all who will be saved.

    Paul shows how God's plan of salvation encompasses four major steps. First, God chooses, then He calls, ...

    In this episode of The Greater Heritage podcast we review Spiritual Depression: Its Causes and Cure by Martyn Lloyd-Jones and published by William B. Eerdmans Publishing Company.

    Jesus said “I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly.” (Jn. 10:10 KJV) Yet many Christians do not enjoy the abundant life that Jesus promised. Rather, many struggle with spiritual depression.

    As we continue our podcast series Going through Galatians we look at how Paul speaks to his testimony as a defense for his faith and authority. Paul shows that God authors our testimonies.

    God’s authorship of our salvation is the reason for our sanctification and an explanation for our zeal.

    Testimonies create captive audiences and they raise questions. Therefore, we must present our testimony to others as something that only God cou...

    This episode continues our series entitled Going through Galatians. The series studies Paul’s monumental defense of the faith in the wake of those who were trying to distort the gospel.

    In today’s lesson Paul once more validates his authority. He teaches that he was not taught the gospel by man, but through revelation by God.

    Salvation is the greatest teacher. The supernatural revelation of the Holy Spirit in people’s lives is the on...

    In this episode of our series Going through Galatians Paul continues to set the stage for his great defense of the faith against those who have added works to the doctrine of salvation.

    Paul “marveled” at the Galatian congregations' quick departure from the truth of the gospel.

    It is a seriously grave matter to leave the gospel. Christians must respond to those who depart from Jesus and the faith in a manner similar to Paul.
