What is Cultural Marxism?
Cultural Marxism is one of those phrases that we use a lot; but for those who don't have the leisure to study this material, how do we understand this term? Andrew Sandlin explains the origins, nature, and insidious implications of this worldview that has been in ascendance in the modern West.
Jesus Christ's Finished Work Finishes Off Satan and Sin
Jesus Christ's death was itself an exaltation and victory the Son of Man lifted up to draw the sinful world to him, and victory over the forces of Satan and sin and hell.
God Was in Christ Reconciling
Our Lord's death isn't just a work of the members of the Trinity all working together but also as the person, the single living God, saving us. This article originally appeared at http://docsandlin.com/2018/03/25/god-was-in-christ-reconciling/
The Biblical Gospel is Imperialistic
The gospel is a declaration of what God has done, is doing, and will do in Jesus Christ to take his world back from Satan and sin. It demands our allegiance and our devotion and passion in public no less than in private. Hear the interview inspired by this article here.
The Imperial Gospel
Andrew Sandlin joins us for a podcast interview on the full scope of the gospel. He explains the original context of the word in connection with imperial Greece and Rome, and we talk about some of the reasons Christians have abandoned the task of applying the gospel in public life. Andrew's article that inspired this conversation can be found here.
Two Kinds of Sinners
The goal of Gods grace is a right-living people. It is a grace that transforms a rebel into an obedient child and situates him on the path of righteousness.
Dualism in the Church
The Platonic idea of dualism has been widely discredited, except among some Christians. The ideology that abandons the created world is one that also abandons the Christian cultural task.
Money & Economics
God in His Word has much to say about money and economic issues, and the ways that we produce and use it. There are many perspectives among Christians concerning this issue. What is the biblical way to think about money on a personal and societal level? How should we understand money in light of the kingdom of God? What does a responsible, godly attitude towards wealth look like?
Where does the idea come from that Christianity is a private, personal matter, disconnected from life and culture?
Secularization is not the same as atheism. Rather it is the belief that God and His Word have nothing meaningful to say to society.
Intellect is God's good gift to us. To scorn or abandon intellect is to express deep ingratitude to God.
What is the Gospel?
If the Gospel is rightly described as Good News, we must ask what the news is about. The answer Jesus gives is that it is “the good news of the kingdom of God” (Luke 4:43; Acts 8:12). The good news of the Gospel is that Jesus Christ is King of kings and Lord of lords, and that He is building His kingdom of righteousness among us.
