Who was he? Who killed him? Why did he die? Prepare for celebrating the resurrection by focusing on the events that led to Easter Sunday morning.
 
Immorality is a killer. It breeds lies, abortion, murder, divorce, and broken hearts. How can we conquer this spirit of lust that can cause even the most godly to go crazy? David’s adulterous affair with Bathsheba gives us answers.
 
Did you wake up singing today? We are going to learn how to shout songs of victory. How to lament the songs of despair. And how to capture the renewed song of forgiveness.
 
Has God spoken clearly to mankind? Can Jesus be grouped with other great religious teachers? What does the Bible have to say to a relativism that claims that all devout followers can relax — whatever “Great Spirit” there might be will gladly reward sincerity? For a society convulsed by false messiah’s from Waco to San Francisco, the message of this First Century document could save your spiritual life!
 
When we open the pages of the best seller of all time, we enter the greatest story ever told. Unlike the Koran, the Scriptures of both Jews and Christians tell a story. Do you know the setting of this story, the main characters, the plot, the climax, and the resolution? Who are the good characters and the bad? Is it a comedy or a tragedy? This series will help you feel comfortable and confident that you know the story that God is telling in His Word, why He is telling it, and how you fit int ...
 
How do you pray? With a book of liturgy, totally extemporaneous, with King James English, or with down-home country talk? God’s Son can answer this question better than anyone else, and this is exactly what He did in His model prayer. You have probably repeated these words hundreds of times, but have you taken some time to understand what they really mean? These messages will challenge you to do exactly that!
 
Our kids--we agree they are treasures, but may not agree on how to raise them. Some are too strict and some are too easy. Who can give us the wisdom and power to get it right? Dave challenges us to help our children experience the love of Jesus.
 
Is there something we can live for that guarantees that our best days are still ahead? It's one of the earliest letters in the New Testament, but right from the start the Apostle Paul reveals how you can be rescued from living for stuff that only turns to dust. He can guarantee that your best days are ahead.
 
Can Christ really make us a new person? These messages enable you to take an inventory of your struggles with the sinful nature even as a “new creation in Jesus”, and then give you hope for a life full of the Fruit of the Spirit!
 
It's the biggest birthday celebration in the world. Macys and Target make or break their entire year in the few weeks leading up to the Holiday and even Hollywood tries to cash in with some major releases. But Charlie Brown and the simple reading of the Scriptural narrative still captures our hearts. Who was this baby wrapped in swaddling clothes as the Father's gift? Where did He come from? How long has he lived? What makes him the most important baby ever born? Matthew and Luke tell us abo ...
 
A new and challenging perspective on our involvement in missions today
 
Christmas carols provide the background music for your shopping. Every retail store judges their year on the sales generated by this holiday, and the air passengers will fill the skies and we pray both the sky and the passengers are friendly. Why all the fuss in the middle of winter? Jesus, the only human being who conquered death, was born of the Virgin in Bethlehem. On your breaks from shopping join Truth Encounter for this series titled—The Birth of a King.
 
What is a marriage? In this series we open God's Handbook for Skillful Living and discuss together what it means to build our marriages and our homes by God's design.
 
Goddess Worship! It brought God's children down in the Old Testament and God sent them into exile. As we begin the 21st Century, we are far more sophisticated. We would never dream of falling into this kind of idolatry, or would we? You've got to listen to these four studies titled "Dethroning the Goddess of Money."
 
Dads—we all want to be good fathers and raise good kids, but was this the goal of the first father? Think the Bible is a book about idealistic morality and goody- goody religion? Its time to get serious about the real truth. If God's purpose was to tell a story of good fathers and good kids, then most of the Old Testament has to be thrown out. It's time to read again and discover what real fathers aim at –fathers like Adam, Noah, Abraham, Jacob, Judah, and David, and most of all God.

What do we do when we lose one of our loved ones in death- we visit the grave and weep or we plow on with life and weep far away from the grave. There is one time in human history when loved ones arrived at the grave to cry and they ended up bursting with joy.
 
The Romans crucified thousands during the high point of their 400 year rule, but there is one cross that will never be forgotten. It is Easter –the time when even the calendar calls us to Calvary.
 
From a religious standpoint and a political standpoint, the religious and political leaders who tried Jesus might not have believed that He was important, but time and history have proven them wrong.
 
New Testament scholars have spilled pages of ink blaming Jesus death on Romans and exonerating the 1st Century Sanhedrin. Before we blame either side, let’s take another hard look at the evidence.
 
Jesus had a lot more than ten reasons not to go the cross when He prayed in Gethsemane, yet He poured out His emotions, His hesitation in the face of death, and finally His total submission to His Father’s will. Jesus came apart in Gethsemane so that He could be strong in the Trial of Golgotha – a lesson about what real life is and how to make ...…
 
Who killed Jesus? Why did He die? Who is Jesus? Many of our personal and nationwide debates in the big scheme of things mean little. But these questions about a man who lived two thousand years ago stir deep passions and they should. Let’s look at Matthew’s passion narrative and ask him to answer our questions about who did it and why.…
 
What would it have been like to be part of NASA after President Kennedy launched the race to the moon? Talk about purpose! The space mission is now getting cut back, but someone far greater than a U.S. President has enlisted you in a far greater goal than that "giant leap for mankind." To live we need a mission. What's yours? Listen.…
 
NFL coaches need to be masters of motivation and spotting talent. CEOs need to be able to make the hard decisions when the economy starts to slide into the "seven lean" years after the "fat ones," and even presidents have to correct their course and navigate the troubled waters of public support. Where do you go to find successful coaches, busi ...…
 
Sacred space—it’s one of the most powerful forces in the world. We, as human beings, yearn to worship in that special place. Two million Moslems will soon pack out Mecca’s Grand Mosquein to fulfill the Hajj, and Israelis and Palestinian prove every day that the struggle to control sacred space still brings blood in the 21st Century. Does that s ...…
 
I was talking to the director of a mentoring program in our local high school the other day and this is what struck me. "Teens simply don't respect authority. Their idea is that you don't have to respect anyone unless they first earn this respect. The basic idea is that you can treat someone like dirt until they prove that they deserve your att ...…
 
Family First, Focus on the Family, and thousands of pages written on How to be Better Dads and Moms and How to Raise Our Kids to be Godly and Good. Of course Jesus teaches us to put family first, or does He? How did Jesus warn us about the idolatry of family?
 
The nuclear family—a dad and mom with their kids living under one roof is becoming a relic of the past. Conservatives cry for the days of Leave it to Beaver and liberals applaud experimentation with new forms of family living. Who actually created families and what does He reveal about what their purpose should be? Listen as we trace the story ...…
 
Why do so many marriage break apart after a husband or wife reconnects with their high school flame on Face Book? Can plastic surgery really recreate your youth, and what happens when disease and age call for payment? The greatest teacher who ever lived actually warns us against worshipping sexuality, but He also reveals a secret about how we c ...…
 
Guys might not admit it, but they feel the joy when the lovers break through all the obstacles keeping them apart and they finally kiss at the end of the romantic chick flick. Where does this deep joy come from? Could it be that there is a love story that goes a lot deeper than “Sleepless in Seattle?”…
 
Young couples live together and wait until they are in their thirties before going through the formality of a marriage ceremony. An increasing number of wives in midlife are deciding that it's time to stop taking care of a husband and living for kids. It's time to find fulfillment for themselves. What does an almost forgotten, old fashioned wor ...…
 
The battle rages—traditional marriage between a man and a woman or the rights of individuals to define marriage according to their desires. Appeals are made to history, to religion, to present day stories of broken hearts and forbidden dreams. In the midst of the discussion there is one person who is often left out of the discussion—God! It's t ...…
 
From Israelis and Palestinians who need a wall between them, to heated arguments and fights that break out over a proposed Moslem Community Center two blocks from ground zero, to a pastor in Florida who holds the world in suspense as he threatens to burn hundreds of copies of the Quran, we live in a world that seethes with hatred. What does it ...…
 
Religion is back in style in America! Everything from burning incense to daily meditation times are the vogue. From Buddhist meditation to charismatic praise to Bible church preaching, the practice of connecting with the deity is scientifically demonstrated to be just plain good for you. If the Apostle Paul were alive today, would he applaud th ...…
 
How has the American society that used to sing that it was the "land of the free" and the "home of the brave" changed its tune? Now the constant sad song has become the cry of the victim—“The drugs made me do it! The alcohol caused the crash. My parents and school teachers did not treat me right when I was growing up, and the final cry of victi ...…
 
The events shock us all--a mother claiming that her two young sons had been kidnapped at gunpoint, ten days of intense hunting throughout the land, tear stained appeals on television, and then the horrible truth, the mother herself knew where her two children were all along--at the bottom of a local lake. The ruthless onslaught of family violen ...…
 
Are you ever scared to pray out loud with a group of friends? Afraid you might not use the right terminology and blow all the protocol with the King of the universe? Listen--the divine King might be getting tired of all the thees and thous, and pious platitudes! If He is omniscient,-knowing all things including exactly what is going on deep ins ...…
 
It ‘s popular to shout Satan down in prayer. "Satan, bite the dust! I bind your forces in Jesus name! Go ahead--bring on your attacks I'm prepared for the fight!" If all this confidence is biblical, then why did Jesus teach us to pray "Lead us not into the time of testing--of temptation?" The sixth petition of the Lord's prayer is our subject t ...…
 
Remember the friends you used to get together with at least once a week, but now you can hardly get out a brief greeting when you run in to them at the post office? What happened to this relationship? Is there one of your adult children who hardly ever calls you on the phone or refuses to let you take care of your grandchildren? Why haven't you ...…
 
"If someone offered you fifty thousand dollars, a contract to be a regular commentator on a popular daily television show, and a platform to motivate millions of young Americans to develop a deep appreciation for higher education and the arts, wouldn't a little innocent deception in cheating on a popular game show be worth the price?" As jaded ...…
 
The tabloids cannot get enough of scandal. I am sure you are tired of hearing the constant gossip. Kings and queens are supposed to be above us all. Princesses are supposed to marry princes and to ride off in the sun set to live happily ever after. All the pomp and circumstance is supposed to applaud these who are bigger than life. No wonder th ...…
 
Little children killing each other in Chicago, terrorist groups bombing, an economic boom that inflates for everyone else except you, a lump in your breast, a miss in your heart beat. Have the public and personal headlines of your life caused you to lose hope? Has life become a boring routine with no more expectancy? Then you have tuned in to T ...…
 
Moms are made with a built in desire to protect their children. When your womb protects the defenseless little person that grows from a microscopic cell into a tiny human being made in the image of God, it is hard not to try and keep a protective womb around your children for their entire life. But moms--if you try to protect and control your a ...…
 
Kingdom. It is a realm or region where someone or something is dominant. Why do we need to pray and ask God to bring His kingdom to earth? How does the "earth" realm differ from the "heavenly" realm when it comes to responding to god's authority? We are presently in the midst of a study of the Lord's paradigm on prayer--showing us exactly the k ...…
 
What do you want to get out of life--health, Love, truth, dependability? What are you doing today to achieve these goals?

"Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be Thy name. Thy kingdom come Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven...." You know the words by heart. With the pledge of allegiance these words are probably repeated more than any others in the American culture. But like a lot of words we repeat by rote, have we thought carefully about what they mea ...…
 
It's a word or sound or combination of sounds by which an individual or class of individuals (as person or things) is regularly known or designated." Leave it to the dictionary to take something that we use every day and make it sound as complicated as Einstein's theory of relativity. What in the world is the dictionary defining? It's something ...…
 
The clock presses on in history. The conflict between good and evil intensifies. One voice after the other calls us to action. But what actions will be productive? What should we devote ourselves to?

The entire planet will stop to celebrate the birthday of the Bethlehem baby, but do they stop to consider who was born that day and why he has become the pivotal figure of all of history? John 1:18 clearly states that “no one has seen God at any time” yet the Old Testament records several accounts of individuals who spoke face to face with God. ...…
 
Have you ever felt totally stressed, exhausted, at the end of your rope? Of course it's Christmas—the time that's supposed to be filled with cheer that often becomes filled with tears. What's awesome is that God didn't scold us from a safe distance. Instead He entered our messed up world to join us and deliver us.…
 
When asked what they learned in their college class on World Religion, a student replied, "I learned that Jesus was Jewish." If you've been raised on the Christmas story knowing that Jesus was born a little south of Jerusalem in the City of David, you take it for granted that Jesus was Jewish, but why Jesus was rejected by His own people is one ...…
 
You might have missed the words while walking through Macy's in the middle of the night on Black Friday last week, but even by day- listen. "Christ by highest heav'n adored, Christ the ever lasting Lord." Strange words to provide background for shopping, but who is this Messiah that heaven is in love with? To get ready for Jesus' birthday celeb ...…
 
Our Christmas lights are up and shining both inside and out. The party cycle has begun, and yet counselors find that in the midst of all the yuletide cheer many of us wrestle with dark fears and sadness.

When a friend sins, should you confront him or her? How do you get the timing right and what approach should you take? Need help convincing a prodigal it’s time to come home? The Old Testament prophet, Nathan, was used by God to woo the wandering King David back into intimacy with God. This exposure of Nathan’s confrontation with King David wil ...…

Imagine you're on death row in Huntsville, Texas. You're guilty of a capital offense and that night you face the lethal injection. But instead of your last meal, the cell is unlocked. You're handed a governor's pardon. Instead of eating surrounded with guards, you eat free surrounded with your closest friends. Imagine the relief, the joy, the t ...…
 
His head hurt. His bones ached. His spiritual life was cold and dead. He could remember when his worship was hot, when he could burst into dances of praise and thanksgiving. Where did he lose his song of praise and could he ever find it again. Turn to 2 Samuel 11 and 12 and listen to this weeks Truth Encounter—Exposing a Cover Up.…
 
Pastors and church leaders spend hours and hours trying to figure out why folks would rather stay home and read the paper or hit the greens for a good round of golf on Sunday morning than worship. I’m all for figuring out what we can do to attract more folks to come and worship, but I also think we need to face a hard fact. We can research and ...…
 
Have you ever thought Is God even there? Why all this trouble? I thought He was the giver of all blessings? Why do I get manure instead of diamonds? In most of our public prayers we say the flowery things, but in old Israelite worship, they could get honest about the hard questions. Turn to Psalm 44 and then listen to this weeks Truth Encounter ...…

Do you ever feel that it simply doesn't pay to believe in the God of the Bible? He simply can't deliver on what He promises. Nehemiah and Ezra were both slaves in Persia, but God kept His promises to them. He brought Nehemiah home to rebuild Jerusalem and Ezra home to rebuild obedience to the Law. Both men set the stage for the gift of God's Me ...…
 
Hate for the Jew--from Pharoah in Egypt, to Nebuchadnezzar in Babylon, to Xerxes in Persia-- right down to the present desire to blow them out of their land--Anti-Semitism remains a deadly poison in our 21st century. This explains why it is imperative of us to go back to the message of the 5th century BC story or Esther. God may seem absent and ...…
 
The wheels of Nebuchadnezzar’s chariots rolled over Daniel and Ezekiel’s beloved city, but both of these young Jewish prophets in Exile in Babylon saw the Lord prove that He controlled the wheel of history and that in the end a "stone cut out without hands" would destroy not only Babylon but all mankind’s rebel kingdoms against God.…
 
They are called the Twelve Minor Prophets but their message is major. From Amos to Malachi Israel’s prophets thunder divine judgment against God’s people because they have broken the promise they made to God at Sinai. How then do each of these hell-fire and damnation prophets find a tender, sweet song of salvation? Hosea gives the most provocat ...…
