WWUTT: He Became Sin Who Knew No Sin?

Dr. John MacArthur recently taught: “The greatest Gospel verse in the Bible, 2 Corinthians 5:21, For our sake, He made Him to be sin who knew no sin so that in Him we might become the righteousness of God. Let me unpack those 15 Greek words…He – God – made Jesus sin. What do you mean He made Jesus sin?Only in one sense – God treated Jesus as if He had committed every sin ever committed by every person who would ever believe though, in fact, He committed none of them. Hanging on the cro … [Read more...]

WWUTT: The Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil?

When God created Adam and Eve, He put them in the Garden of Eden and told them they could eat from any tree they wanted, except from the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. The day they ate of it, they would die. “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat of it, you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:16-17) And you know how the story went…Eve was tempted by the serpent, ate the fruit, gave … [Read more...]

WWUTT: While We Were Messed Up?

A youth leader stood before a group of teens and quoted Romans 5:8, “but God shows His love for you in that while you were messed up Christ died for you!” Now you’re going to read in the bible “That while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Why change the wording. The youth pastor would say, “Well Sin is such an archaic word. Who knows what it means anyway? Let’s just put it in words the students can understand. Or the word is too offensive and I don’t want to offend anyone. So messed up … [Read more...]

Jesus in HD 135: Demystifying Church Discipline

[display_podcast] In this week’s PODCAST, as we continue in our chronological study of the life and ministry of Jesus, we come to Matthew 18:15-17 -- one of the most important passages in all of the New Testament, the so-called “Church Discipline” passage. Church Discipline, a teaching in many local churches that really rose into prominence in the late 1970’s and became quite the trend. I can remember attending church leadership conferences back then and hearing pastors -- I’ll use word “boast … [Read more...]

The Remi Adeleke Ministries Podcast 1: Like A Lion

[display_podcast] 1 Peter 5:8 tells us:Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour. This passage is the foundation for this week’s message. But, before we go on, I want to hone in on the word “like”, when Peter writes “…like a roaring lion…” Too many times, when people read or teach this passage, they glaze over the word “like” too quickly. By doing so, it can leave a false impression in the minds of new believe … [Read more...]

My Armor 28: Suffering Is For All Of Us, But It Doesn’t Last Long

[display_podcast] Some weeks are better than others. My divorce is going to be finalized very soon. Getting over something like this isn’t easy. And we all go through things like this – maybe not a divorce, but other types of loss. I took my sons to Target recently. While there, we ran into a woman who was all decked out in the “Target Garb”: khaki pants, red t-shirt, red vest with her name tag on it… the whole uniform. So, I asked her if she could help me find what we were looking for and she … [Read more...]
