Ask ten average Christians in ten average churches to explain the doctrine of the Trinity, and you’ll probably get ten different explanations. Most Christians “accept” the Trinity as orthodox Christian doctrine. But they would be at a loss to explain why the doctrine matters, or how it affects their Christian lives.

Most of us go to great lengths to look good in the eyes of others. We want them to think well of us, to look up to us, even to admire us. Think about it: When we know someone we respect is watching, don’t we make every effort to be on our best behavior?

The Trinity: Just a Doctrine?

Predestination: Does God Choose Your Fate?

“I am wondering about predestination. Are some people predestined to be saved and the rest predestined not to be saved?”

The doctrine of predestination is sometimes referred to as “election,” in the sense that God chooses people for his own purposes. For example, Abraham was chosen, or elected, by God, as were his son and grandson, Isaac and Jacob. Other chosen ones included Moses, Joshua, David, the prophets, and the Israelites were the “chosen people.”

Getting a Grip on Repentance

"A horrible dread." That was how the young man described his deep fear that God had rejected him because of his repeated sins. "I thought I had repented, but I did it again," he explained. "I don’t even know if I really have faith, because I’m afraid God might not forgive me again. No matter how sincere I think my repentance is, it never seems to be enough."

Let’s talk about what the gospel means by repentance toward God.

The Gospel Really Is Good News

When people gather in churches after a disaster, they come to hear words of comfort, encouragement and hope. Yet, try as they might to bring hope to a grieving people, some Christian leaders unwittingly proclaim a message that amounts to despair, hopelessness and fear for people whose loved ones died without having first professed faith in Jesus Christ.

Free in the Divine Freedom

"OK, I see that I can rest assured in my salvation in Christ. And I can't tell you how great it is to trust God's word and stop worrying that I'm not good enough for him to save me. Now I am wondering about predestination. What does it mean in Romans 8:29 that `those whom he foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son'? Does that mean that I will be saved no matter what because God predestined me to be saved? Are some people predestined to be saved and the rest predestined not to be saved?"

I'm glad you asked.

Theology: What Difference Does It Make?

“Don’t talk to me about theology. Just teach me the Bible.”

To the average Christian, theology might sound like something hopelessly complicated, frustratingly confusing and thoroughly irrelevant. Anybody can read the Bible (although people often come to very different conclusions). So why do we need head-in-the-clouds theologians with their long sentences and fancy terms?

In Dr. Kruger's first interview, he and Mike Feazell discuss Jesus' role as the center of all things, and God's plan for our adoption before the foundation of the world.

In his second interview, they discuss how Jesus has united himself with us, that the starting place of the gospel is that we are already included, and it is our choice whether to acknowledge and live in that relationship.

We also have three interviews with William Paul Young, author of The Shack.

Let God Be God

Photo of Mike FeazellMay I ask you a couple of personal questions? 

You don't have to respond out loud; silent answers will do. The answers are for you, not for me.

Here's the first question: Has your child ever gotten a bit rebellious, uncooperative or disrespectful?

And here's the second: Did you punish him or her? Remember, just a silent answer. No need to raise your hand.
