Friends, I tell you, there is no better day to celebrate the birth of the Lord than on the Lord's Day.
I come away from the SBC annual meeting generally encouraged. We have a lot of work to do, but I believe our convention will persevere through the trials that lay ahead. So long as we stand on the inerrancy and sufficient authority of scripture. And as long as we proclaim, with power and confidence, a clear gospel of repentance, redemption, and reconciliation through the atoning work of Jesus Christ’s death, burial, and resurrection.
A Snapshot of SBTC 2020
As I look back at these takeaways, I cannot help but notice two prevailing issues: Sin has real consequences, and the only hope is the gospel.
A Prayer for Unity
Grant us the ability to detach from ourselves in order to see the bigger picture. Give us the boldness to speak against sin and injustice of any kind.
Why Abortion is a Sin
Abortion is a sin because it terminates the life of a person created in the image of God for relationship with God, worship of God, and obedience to God---all for the glory of God.
Sexual Immorality and the Gospel
It is necessary to understand the issue of sexual immorality as an issue of worship.
Why Homosexuality is Incompatible with the Gospel
Where Christ ceases to be the focus, the gospel ceases to exist.
