The Problem of Pride

The Problem of Pride

by Chris Buri | Authentic Christianity

More than any other sin, the Bible warns against pride – the spiritually lethal carbon monoxide of the church.  It was the underlying problem of division and sin in the church of Corinth (1 Corinthians 4:6-21). More than just talk about the cancer of pride, however, Chris Buri encourages us with the cure administered by God’s Holy Spirit to cure the church and relationships.

Faithful Fathers

Faithful Fathers

by Larry Murray | Authentic Christianity

How do I know if I’m a good father? When success in parenting or ministry becomes the same as success in the world, the servant of God evaluates success like a farmer, businessman, athlete or a politician. You look for increases size and growth, nickels or noses. Whom you are trying to please, however, determines what you will do to please them. Are you evaluating yourself and your ministry from God’s point of view, trying to please people, or with the world’s standard of quantitative analysis?

Success as a servant of God and a good father is summed up in one biblical word: Faithful. Praise God for being a faithful Heavenly Father to us.  Larry Murray continues our series about Authentic Christianity from 1 Corinthians 4:1-5.

The Foolishness of Human Wisdom

by Jeff Edmunds | Authentic Christianity

In 1 Corinthians 3:16-23, Paul writes to the church to humble themselves to respond to the wisdom of God rather than human wisdom of this world. Jeff Edmunds encourages us to find our identity in Christ because we belong to Christ.

All Things New: A New Future

We wrestle with the brokenness of the world we live in and see that in Revelation 21:1-8, God tells us that he plans to make the world new, dwell will his people, and right every wrong in the world. This hope for a future with Him gives us purpose for our present with one another.

All Things New: A New Creation

A New Creation

by Larry Murray | All Things New

The pressures of life, expectations of academic excellence, and the shame from his family led Ravi Zacharias to attempt suicide by swallowing poison at the age of 17. While in the hospital, however, Fred David, a Youth for Christ worker, shared a Bible with his mother and encouraged her to read to him from John 14. His mother read out loud Jesus’ words in John 14:19, “Because I live, you will live, too.” 

Zacharias thought, “This is my only hope: A new way of living. Life as defined by the Author of Life.” Hearing about Christ’s death on the cross in his place, he committed his life to Him. And for next 48 years, he became an ambassador for Christ around the world as an author and a leading apologist. Through his radio program, Let My People Think, he explored issues such as the credibility of the Christian message and the Bible, the weakness of modern intellectual movements, and the uniqueness of Jesus Christ. Ravi Zacharias experienced how God makes all things new through faith in Christ.

“Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, he is a new creation; the old has passed away, and see, the new has come! (2 Corinthians 5:17) This is the biography not only of Ravi Zacharias or the Apostle Paul, but of every believer in Christ! Truly, old things have passed away, and new things have come because God makes all things new.

Resurrection Victory

Resurrection Victory

by John Adair | Authentic Christianity

The Battle of Bunker Hill, or Breed’s Hill, was fought on June 17, 1775, during the Siege of Boston in the early stages of the American Revolutionary War. The battle is named after Bunker Hill in Charlestown, Massachusetts, which was peripherally involved in the battle. It was the original objective of both the colonial and British troops, though the majority of combat took place on the adjacent hill which later became known as Breed’s Hill. The British won the battle from a tactical sense, but it proved to be a somewhat hollow victory, a sobering experience for them, involving many more casualties than the Americans had incurred, including many officers.

Because of the resurrection of Jesus, there are no more hollow victories for our final enemy – Death. John Adair leads a discussion from 1 Corinthians 15:50-58 about our resurrection victory in Christ.

Resurrection Power

Resurrection Power

by Larry Murray | Authentic Christianity

In a Dallas Morning News article last week concerning the collective attempts to slow the COVID-19 virus, Dr. Philip Huang, Dallas County Health Director, said, “This is what we’re all trying to address and keep death down as much as we can.” The significant changes of physical distancing we have made to limit the spread of coronavirus, flatten the curve, have made a difference, and saved lives. But here’s the reality – everyone who survives the coronavirus will eventually die of something else or some other cause. So what you believe about the resurrection really matters. Eventually.

There is no reason to believe that the body and soul will continue to exist at some point in the future, unless there is reason to believe that the power of death has been defeated. That is precisely what the Bible states—death has been conquered by the resurrecting power of Jesus Christ (1 Corinthians 15:20–22). The resurrection of Jesus from the dead reveals the power of God over all life – including your life.
