By October 1, 2012In October of 2012 Randy spent a weekend at The Cove, The Billy Graham Association's conference center in Asheville, NC. Over the weekend Randy was interviewed by Dr. John Akers on the theme "Four Central Truths of A Biblical Worldview." |
When grace and truth are not balanced people can cause deep hurt. John asks Randy how we forgive people who have hurt us. Randy asserts that the key is that we must forgive as we have been forgiven and explains Jesus' parable on this topic. The reality is that what we have done against the infinitely holy God is far worse than what anyone has ever done against us. This doesn't minimize the hurt the person has done against us but it puts it into perspective.

By June 15, 2010I’ve been asked about sinless perfectionism, the belief that once someone becomes a Christian, they are no longer capable of sinning. Because they are clothed in the righteousness of Christ, because they are a new creation in Christ, therefore, just as Christ cannot sin, they cannot sin. |
I struggle with forgiving my parents for the painful home environment I grew up in. Do you know of any books that could help me?
By March 25, 2010I highly recommend David Augsburger’s The Freedom of Forgiveness. Also, Philip Yancy’s What’s So Amazing about Grace?, which shows us how God’s forgiveness of us should result in our forgiveness of others. |
By March 25, 2010Not to make a rash decision based on the needs of others: my boyfriend, my family...or on my scholarship to the university! |
By March 24, 2010The greatest sorrow is not being able to forgive yourself. You say you feel worse now than ever. That is because you are carrying a load you were never intended to carry. |
By March 5, 2010We can know for sure that we have eternal life. We can know for sure that we will go to Heaven when we die. |
