Randy Alcorn's Blog: jesus

Superheroes, Heresies and the God-man

Crossover with Julia Stager

One of our Eternal Perspective Ministries staff members is Julia Stager. Because of my respect for her as a person and as a biblical thinker, I asked Julia to begin what will be a regular video blog to express her personal, biblical and theological perspectives. 

How do you help non-believers see their need for Jesus?

Cappuccino and conversationThat’s a great question. I think there’s a couple of different strategies. Everything that we do must, at some point, reach the point of dealing with the sin issue—the separation from God. However, I think there’s a way to get to it through the perception that each person has intuitively: there is something more to life that they’re missing out on.

Did Jesus have a sin nature?

Did Jesus have a sin nature? // Jesus is “holy, innocent, unstained, separated from sinners, and exalted above the heavens” (Hebrews 7:26). First, we need to define sin nature. The “nature” of a person or object is commonly thought of as its essential qualities or attributes; that which makes it what it is. Therefore if something has a “sin nature” sin is a defining attribute of that thing.

Hebrews 4:15 tells us Jesus is “without sin.” Since He is without sin, sin cannot be one of His essential qualities or attributes. 

Does being like Jesus mean not talking about Hell?

Christ says the unsaved “will be thrown outside, into the darkness, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Matthew 8:12). These days you’ll often hear people say something like, “Instead of condemning people and threatening them with Hell, we should be like Jesus and love them.”

Sports and the Christian Life

Sports and the Christian: "Do all to the glory of God"1 Corinthians 10:31 tells us, “When you eat or drink, whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.” If you watch or participate in sports, do it for the glory of God.

Is Sincerity Enough?

John 14:6I think sincerity certainly does count for something. But I also believe it counts for less than we think it does. There are sincere people, for instance, who don’t believe that Jesus is the only way to Heaven.

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.

Humility: Recognizing Who We Really Are

ladybugRomans 12:3 says, “Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment.” This is what humility is—it’s recognizing who we really are.

 

Pondering God’s Giving Heart This Christmas

Christmas giftOne of the things I love most about Christmas is that it’s all about giving—with the ultimate gifts being Christ’s incarnation and His atonement. 2 Corinthians 8:9 says, “For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you by his poverty might become rich.”

 

Calvin Miller, author and Christ-lover, with the Lord

Calvin MillerFive days ago a friend and author, poet, artist, speaker and professor Calvin Miller exited this world and entered a better one. The first time I met Calvin, I told him how his classic Singer trilogy had shaped and influenced me and charged my imagination as a teenager, a brand new Christian in the 70’s.
