How Can Christians Overcome the World? (Ep. 159)

March 11, 2024

It doesn’t take much discernment to see that we live in dark days. In Romans 1, the Bible says that God judges people by turning them over to a debased mind and we can see in our nation an in much of world, sodomy and perversion are all around us. God also says clearly that these thing come to pass because men and women do not want to retain God in their knowledge. But, as of 2021, as many as 63% of Americans identify as Christians. How can we be a people who do not retain God in our knowledge when so many of us profess Christianity and even more importantly, what should we do about it?

In Leviticus, when God establishes the Aaronic priesthood, the very first command that he gives to Aaron is a command for the priests to distinguish between the holy and the unholy. And this is not something that changes in the New Testament. All who are Christians are priests, and one of our most serious roles in the world, as we see in Romans 1, is to declare the righteousness and holiness of God. In this episode, we want to deal with the work that God has given each Christian to do, both within the church and out in the greater world. It’s so tempting to think that kindness is accepting all things, and that love is overlooking every form of sin, and while the blood of Christ does wash away sin, he never ignores it or pretends that it does not exist. Jesus Christ came to destroy the works of the devil, and because this is true, the people of God will always care about what is holy and what is unholy. Please join us as we discuss this important topic.
