Part 13 of 23Eternal RewardsA while back I was speaking at a church out of state.

But I didn't get […]
Part 15 of 16Bob And ShawnThe Bible is a big book. Actually, it is a library of many books, each with its own purpose. Where should you start reading?
Part 9 of 9PodcastIn the last chapter, I told you about my friend who became an agnostic. I'm glad to report that his agnosticism was short lived. He's stepped back from that position since. His doubts are not all laid to rest, but he's moving toward a lifestyle and a faith that more resembles what […]
Part 8 of 9PodcastI have a close friend who fought a decade long war against doubt. His retrospective honesty sheds a fascinating light on at least one way that a Christian can suffer a defeat to doubt. He grew up in a Christian family and found himself in church every Sunday.

Part 7 of 9PodcastWhen I was in college, I got to know a young lady named Nancy who I liked very much. She was originally from Tegucigalpa Honduras but had moved to the States as a teenager. We spent as many hours together as our schedules would allow, and sometimes even when our schedules did […]
Part 6 of 9PodcastI took a chemistry class at the community college in my town the year after I graduated high school. I quickly learned that 8:00 am classes were nearly impossible to attend.

Part 5 of 9Podcast For my undergraduate degree, I went to Letourneau University, a school nationally known for its engineering and aviation program.

Part 4 of 9PodcastWhen I was a child, I had an experience in which I strongly doubted my dad's judgment. My family and I had returned from a trip. As we were getting settled in for lunch, I noticed that my mother was crying as she stood over the stove. I approached her and asked […]
Part 3 of 9PodcastUnder the hot afternoon sun, we stood, a pack of about twenty third-grade boys. The game was to be soccer, and it was team-picking time. I was late in the draft, very late. They had already picked the tall, the fast, and the tough. But who wanted me, a scrawny kid, who […]
Part 2 of 9PodcastOnce there was a woman who spent years attending Sunday services. In fact, she worked on the secretarial staff at a Bible teaching church. She heard sermons about Christ on a regular basis. She had often edited text for church publications which focused on faith alone in Christ alone. After many years […]
Part 1 of 9PodcastMy father-in-law grew up on a farm in Nebraska. As most who know him can attest, he isn't afraid to get his hands dirty, or his whole body for that matter. When I first married his daughter, I had to get used to his do-it-yourself style. Often he's made outrageous sounding claims […]
Part 14 of 23Eternal RewardsJesus shared a parable that will help us understand something important about rewards.

Part 14 of 16Bob And ShawnLearn about Shawn's love for electric guitars and how it relates to free-will and eternal security.

Part 12 of 23Eternal RewardsI've encountered a number of people who say they are not interested in eternal rewards; they just want to please God. That's really ironic. It's ironic because it's impossible to please God or get close to Him without believing in and seeking the rewards He offers. The writer of Hebrews says […]
Part 13 of 16Bob And ShawnAccording to Free Grace Theology, Jesus died for everyone, including you. However, that does not mean everyone automatically goes to heaven when they die, i.e., that does not mean universalism is true. Why not? Shawn Lazar explains.
