The Law and Freedom's Promise

Benny Phillips continued Redeemer's Galatians series, preaching on Galatians 3:15-25 on Sunday. So far in the letter to the Galatians, Paul has a specific flow of thought: He has established that we are saved, justified and redeemed only by faith in Christ and not through righteousness of our own. Any careful reader (or listener) will inevitably have questions about where the law fits into the Christian life, then. Specifically, Paul answers the question, "Does the law (given to Moses) set aside the promise (given to Abraham)?"...Keep Reading

What Our Identity in Christ Says About Our Suffering

The suffering in our lives keeps us from doing and experiencing many good things, and it often teaches us bad things. Suffering has the tendency to pervert our perception of the world around us. Children who grow up abused often have uniquely distorted views of God, self, and others. Those who suffer traumatic experiences in any stage of life often have difficulty engaging with life after the trauma. Chronic pain or illness can keep us from so much of what we could be doing if only we were well, and we wonder if we're doing well enough under the circumstances or failing to redeem what little time we have. In the end, we often ask, "Is there any value in the years ravaged by another's sin? Is there any value in a life only half-lived due to our own folly, inability, or disability? Is there any good in all the bad, and what about all the bad we see in the good? Do we or our lives amount to anything more than the cumulative effect of sin upon sin and pain upon pain, or are we nothing more than failures who have been failed by others, wounded, broken, and destined to perpetuate the process in others?"...Keep Reading

Why Image-Bearing Isn't Only About Responsibility

In my last article, I described our core identity in terms of being God's image-bearers, but if you survey the New Testament, you'll find its overarching understanding of our identity in Christ is that we are sons, co-heirs, siblings of Christ destined to become like Christ. So, we must ask the question: is the New Testament replacing the Old Testament image-bearer motif with an in-Christ adoption motif, or is something else happening? Of course, the answer is that nothing is being replaced. Rather, something is being fulfilled and filled-out....Keep Reading

||redeemer|| #culturalvalues ||part one||

This #CulturalValues talk is about homosexuality " well, sort of. It’s about the LGBT movement, or the LBQGTITZFOB or whatever they are called now " although,as you’ll see, that’s kind of the point. This talk has two major points. I want to address the present reality (homosexuality) and I want to address the future possibilities, or the future goals of the LGBT movement....Keep Reading

Our identity, he taught, is not defined by our roles. But our God-given roles guide us in how we are to live out our identity in Christ....Keep Reading
