  • Sacrifice isn't what you might think

    Why is “sacrifice” such a common theme in the church? — R.H.

    You astutely point out the importance of sacrifice in our life in Christ. Frequently, when moderns hear the word “sacrifice,” the mind conjures images of blood, guts and inconvenience.
    These outward things have nothing to do with sacrifice. Contrarily, love, truth and mercy are the things that make sacrifice worthy. In truth, “sacrifice” is a synonym for love and is thus necessary for all Christians.

  • Bible Answers: Sports, violence and idolatry in the Bible

    “I heard someone say recently that ‘God likes sports because they teach character.’ Another person countered, ‘God doesn’t like sports because they foster violence and idolatry.’ What would the Bible say to this argument?”—Adrian

    As with many current issues, the Bible doesn’t make a straightforward value statement on “sports.” Most of the New Testament was written just prior to — and during the time of — the great Roman spectacles (the Coliseum was built circa AD 70-80.) The Greek Olympic games had obviously been around much longer, perhaps as early as the 8th Century BC.

  • Bible Answers: Deciphering what forgiveness really means

    “Jesus said to his disciples, ‘If you forgive the sins of any, their sins have been forgiven them …’ What did He mean by that?”— Shannon
    This text (Jn. 20:23), found in the context of Jesus’ first real conversation with his disciples following the resurrection, provides a clue to the kind of ministry he anticipated for these people, as well as all who would follow.
