Predestination: Does God Let You Choose Your Own Fate?
|The Gospel Really Is Good News! The gospel of Jesus Christ is good news. It remains forever, good news, the best news imaginable, for absolutely everybody and everything. It is not merely good news for the few who came to know Christ before they died; it is good news for the whole of creation—even for all those who died before they ever heard of Christ.

|Standing in the Light It is fitting and inspiring that brilliant displays of light and color are so much a part of the Advent-Christmas season. For unbelievers, such displays are little more than another advertising gimmick of modern retailers. But for us who believe the gospel, who know God and Jesus Christ whom he has sent, they can be another reminder of the glory of the One and Only Son of God, who brings the peace and rest for which the whole world aches and pines.

|Take the Leap The gospel, the good news, tells us: You already belong to Christ—receive it. Enjoy it. Trust him with your life. Enjoy his peace. Open your eyes to the beauty, the love, the peace, the joy in the world that can be seen only by those who are at rest in Christ’s love. Because we trust him, we are not afraid to confess our sins and unload them on his shoulders. He is on our side. Click here to read it online.|
|Getting a Grip on Repentance God gave us good news that he has personally paid the heavy price for all our selfish, rebellious, destructive, evil lunacy. When, by the grace of God, you come to see that and believe it, you have repented. To repent is to say: "Yes! I believe it! I trust your word! I'm leaving behind this rat-race life of mine, this pointless struggle to hold together with chewing gum and baling wire this death I thought was life. I'm ready for your rest. Help my unbelief!"

|The Battle Over Hell While most Christians agree that the essence of hell is separation from God, the in-house debate is over the specifics — where hell is, when it is, how hot it is and how long it is. Why? Because the Bible offers little detail. Hell is a doctrine about which there is no clear and dogmatic teaching in Scripture. The interpretation of biblical statements and the imagery they employ is beset with difficulties. Click here to read it online.|
|The Christian Sabbath The law, including the Ten Commandments, was given to Israel, for a specific period of time—the time from their encounter with God on Sinai until the coming of Jesus the Messiah. Once Jesus came, a new law came in—the law of Christ. It was a new covenant relationship, or arrangement, between God and humans, and it was not restricted to the Israelites. It was a covenant with all people. When this “new deal” came in, the “old deal” expired. Click here to read it online. Also available in Spanish.|
