The Ezra Institute for Contemporary Christianity (EICC) exists for the defense, confirmation and vindication of a biblical cosmology affirming the Lordship of the triune God over all life and thought. The great need of our day for God's church is the recovery of a full-orbed gospel and comprehensive faith that recognizes and applies the salvation-victory and lordship of Jesus Christ to all creation: from the family, to education, evangelism, law, church, state and every other sphere.
Much of our life is spent trying to find something to do with the time that we spend much effort trying to save. We never seem satisfied with the present and are always caught up with experiences from the past or expectations for the future. History is working toward an end. If our time is a gift from a God who is there, then our time has real significance and meaning and time has a new destination: eternity.
This segment tackles the misconception that Christianity is divorced from real life and proposes rather that Scripture exposes and analyzes life with unmatched clarity. It is equally as dangerous for man to know about God without knowing his own sinfulness, as it is for man to know his own sinfulness without knowing of the redeemer who can cure him.
We are to be peace-makers, not peace-keepers. This can only be accomplished through the preaching of the gospel of peace. The greatest battle in our day is the battle for the mind and heart. To compromise truth or to negotiate with falsehood may temporarily keep a superficial truce, but will not make for peace.
We cannot find the true interpretation of reality by ourselves, for we neither create, control, nor sustain ourselves or our environment. But many of us resist God's claim on our lives and avoid the tough questions because we are afraid of meeting God.
What does it mean to live now as a citizen of the City of God, as a child of this kingdom that has come and is still coming? Our faith is a comprehensive faith that applies to every aspect of human life. Our call is to work for the redemption and restoration of every sphere of life through Jesus Christ.
We are all ethicists since we all make moral choices, whether we have given it much thought or not. The Image of God in man is ineradicable and there is an inward law, impressed upon the mind by the Holy Spirit as part of God's common grace to all men and women. Christian ethics are summed up in love.
