Why is there so much chaos and suffering around us? How did God’s perfectly created world come to be so broken down? Like Adam and Eve, we turn our backs on God whenever we exchange His truth for the devil’s lies. Yet while God has given the unrepentant over to their idols, He has also provided an escape from judgment through Christ. Alistair Begg urges that instead of becoming calloused to sin, Christians are to imitate Jesus, shining the light of the Gospel into a dark, bewildering world. Scripture: Romans 1:24-25 Preached: November 20, 2022

 

The apostle Paul taught that a society’s moral collapse is evidence of God’s wrath. Walking us through Paul’s teaching on immorality in the opening chapter of Romans, Alistair Begg points out that the same issues that faced the early church—including sexual sin—still abound today. Rather than adapting to the world’s standards, however, the church is called to uphold the Bible’s authority with kindness and compassion, because all of us are sinners in need of God’s saving grace. Preach Date: 12/4/22 Scripture: Romans 1:26-27

 

The beautiful world that God created is broken by sin that legislation and education can’t fix. In his letter to the Romans, the apostle Paul taught that when people refuse to acknowledge the Lord’s reign, He gives them over to their own debased minds. Standards disappear, society crumbles, and moral chaos and wickedness ensue. Cautioning against the inclination to judge and admonish others, Alistair Begg encourages us instead to confess our self-righteousness, recall what we were like apart from Christ, and lovingly proclaim the news of God’s salvation. Preach Date: 12/11/22 Scripture: Romans 1:28-32
