The Cross Is Central

Three Crosses in a FieldOn the cross Jesus suffered the worst pain in history. Yet that event will forever remain at the center of our worship and wonder.

The Sentence Against God

ThornsIn If God Is GoodI share a story that John Stott tells in his book The Cross of Christ about billions of people seated on a great plain before God’s throne. Most shrank back, while some crowded to the front, raising angry voices.

“Can God judge us? How can He know about suffering?” snapped one woman.
