Fear and Faith in Times of Economic Crisis

“You believe God will meet all your needs, but you’re not sure he’ll provide all your wants and that’s what really frightens you, doesn’t it?”

I asked this question at a special evangelistic gathering of men in January 2009, right in the middle of the great financial meltdown. None of these men were worried about being homeless or hungry. But, to a man they admitted to periods of fear and sleepless nights, even the Christians present. It was humbling for me to admit to them that I too had been afraid. That set me on a journey to figure out why.

Today, 2020, the whole world is re-living that fear, plus the fear of death.

Why is it that even Christians worry?

What Happens After Death?

Three times in the last few weeks I’ve been asked by good Christians to help them explain to their teenage and college age children what happens after Christians and non-Christians die. I think most of us grew up hearing a Sunday School explanation and many Christians still believe that, but there’s so much more.

To each person, I sent these edited excerpts from the book, One Minute After You Die, by Dr. Erwin Lutzer, the pastor of Moody Church in Chicago. He does a wonderful job of clarifying what the Bible teaches on this important subject.

Getting Spiritually Drunk

A few years ago I was in Paris with four college seniors finishing up ten days of travel, teaching them history and how to think about current social and ethical issues, in light of a biblical worldview. “My guys” were some of the most gifted, leadership young men I’ve ever spent time with and the products of fine Christian families.

One of our discussions was on what it meant to “be filled with the Holy Spirit”. I told them that one of the reasons that concept might feel foreign and theological to them, could be because they’ve never been spiritually drunk.

Beware of Pastors Always Trying to Find a “New Angle”
Posted by Clare

A few months back, I was listening to a podcast of a pastor I very much respect.  He was teaching on The Prodigal Son, Luke 15:11-32.  When he got to the part when the younger brother was living in a “far country” and earned a living feeding pigs, all of a sudden that became the story.  Here was the “new angle.”
