How can a Christian scoundrel be saved while an upright atheist is condemned? What would God say in the face of such questions? Isaiah gives us God’s answer, stressing what is truly evil in God’s eyes and how anyone can find forgiveness in his sight.

    According to a survey published in unChristian, one of the most common objections to Christianity is the hypocrisy of Christians who don’t practice what they preach. Why follow Jesus if so many of his followers are self-righteous pretenders? Given the public scandals of so many church leaders, why wouldn’t we all throw organized religion on the trash pile and become independently spiritual? Jesus himself answers such questions in one of his hardest sermons.

    July 14: Are People Inherently Good?

                   

    Dr. D.A. Carson, a prolific Christian author and frequent college campus speaker, has said that the biggest pushback to his presentations is a belief in sin itself. More than ever, people believe they are inherently good and only the environment around them is bad. What people need is therapy and coping mechanisms but repentance and trust in God’s salvation. What would Jesus say to this heart-affirming objection? His words in Matthew 12 give a clear answer, one that drives us back to the gospel for our hope.
