hard things, the hardest thing
9/10/2017 — Dan Nygaard
Our series Hard Things in the Bible wraps up with a look at perhaps the hardest thing.
The Bible challenges us to give away 10% of our money to Kingdom work.
Jesus was unimpressed by the amount of money people gave.
Jesus was impressed only by sacrificial giving,
giving that hurt. ~
hard things, obedience
9/3/2017 — Dan Nygaard
Jesus’ teachings are so counter-cultural that obeying them can be hard.
On the other hand,
people who choose to do as they please usually end up imitating each other. ~
hard things, Bible translations
8/13/2017 — Dan Nygaard
It’s not hard, really.
Still, the multitude of Bible translations available today can be confusing.
Listen as we work to clear up some of the confusion. ~
hard things, the Trinity
7/23/2017 — Dan Nygaard
Perhaps no aspect of Christianity is more difficult to comprehend than
the concept of The Trinity.
Is it three divine Beings as One?
Or is it three divine Natures of One Being?
Or something else? ~
hard things, existence of adam & eve
7/16/2017 — Dan Nygaard
For many people, Adam & Eve are understood as two characters from a myth.
Could they have actually existed?
Even if they did, what difference does it make? ~
hard things, wrath of God
7/09/2017 — Dan Nygaard
For many of us God’s wrath is one of the Bible’s most difficult realities.
How is it moral—never mind loving,
for an all-powerful Creator to punish people trapped by evil?
