Many people believe that God loves everyone, except for the wicked… you know, the really bad people. But is that true?
Wm. Paul Young’s best selling novel turned movie, “The Shack,” has stirred almost as much controversy in the church as Donald Trump’s election as President. Most Christians either love it or hate it, depending on how “religious” their personal beliefs happen to be.
So which is it? A heretical treatment of the Godhead and fundamental Biblical theology, or a feel-good story of one man’s painful journey toward a meaningful relationship with the Lord?
Christians are always faced with a clear choice. We can either stay safely hidden from the world around us, or move boldly out into the world with a compelling demonstration of God’s presence and love, through His supernatural power released through us.
Enjoy this replay of one of our most popular Strategic Insights programs:
The prophets of doom are back with yet another sensational prediction of global financial collapse, especially focused on the economy of the U.S. It’s all apparently due to the ending of the Jubilee year this month, and something called the “super shemitah.”
One of the oft repeated slogans of the 2016 presidential campaign was “drain the swamp!” Those promoting it were advocating for a complete removal of corruption, influence peddling, etc. in the U.S. Federal Government.
Surprisingly, this concept is as old as the Bible… but when God drains the swamp, what does that look like? What changes are happening in the Church as God begins to deal with inflexible leadership, moribund religious traditions and other irrelevant man-made structures? And most importantly, what will the Church look like when He’s done?
There’s so much talk these days about rigged elections. Many Christians believe that God DOES “rig the elections” because He chooses who will rule over a nation or people. But is that true? As a Christian, does your vote even matter if God is calling all the shots?
The United States Federal Government has ceased to be a government “of the people, by the people, and for the people.” Instead, it has become the equivalent of a State-sponsored religion that imposes its beliefs, values, morals, and laws on us the citizens. To add insult to injury, the very people we elect to represent us, along with the judges they appoint, have now become the hypocritical Pharisees who benefit from this arrangement, and work to enforce it at every turn.
How do we confront this mess? Jesus had some things to say to the Pharisees of His day, and we explore the truth and wisdom He offers for us today.
Join us as we examine a powerful prophetic dream that takes place in a Roman village, where an angel of God was encountered speaking and ministering to people… in a bedroom.
What could this possibly mean for the future of the Church?
What can you do when your gifts or passion are rejected by the very people you thought would support you? For most people, their desire to function in their gifts, anointing or calling is often met with resistance or outright rejection by church leaders.
Let’s talk about how to overcome this kind of situation, so you can experience the freedom that is yours in Christ to serve God and His people fully.
Much of modern Christianity has embraced an unfortunate mixture of Old Covenant teachings upon which a thin shiny coat of New Covenant theology has been applied.
On this episode of Strategic Insights we compare these beliefs with the Person of Jesus Christ, who is, as Bill Johnson notes, “perfect theology.”
