Basics

Each one needs to be in place so strong spiritual lives can be built. These videos are perfect for small groups, personal learning, or used as a tool to help disciple other people.

By Mark Bowen, pastor, Evergreen Church-Lakeville.

Ravi Zacharias on the Christian View of Homosexuality

A quick 11 minute video.

Ravi is one of the great Christian thinkers and communicators of our time. Watch as he responds to this question: “How do you respond to nonbelievers who accuse Christians of being hateful to people who support lifestyles of people that are not according to the precepts of our faith?”

 

The Consequences of Unrighteousness, Part 2 (Romans 1:24-32)

Pastor Mitch Majeski (a dear friend of Brent Knox)offers a brilliant examination of Romans 1:24-32.  This passage is an equal-opportunity offender for the licentious and the legalist. Pastor Mitch answers questions about homosexuality with the truth and compassion of the gospel, which gives hope to how we respond to this issue — for both Christians and those struggling with same-sex attraction.

Compassionate Convictions: Why Love Needs To Know Right from Wrong

Jesus both loved and judged rightly. He forgave the prostitute, yet told her, “Go, and sin no more.” This world needs representatives of Jesus who also have deep convictions, yet display great compassion. How can we stand for what is right, yet have our convictions flow from compassion? This message series touches on the explosive issues like tolerance, government, the definition of marriage, homosexuality, abortion, etc.
