At the heart of Christianity is an event on which everything else depends: the resurrection of Christ from the dead. This extraordinary triumph testifies to God’s eternal power and willingness to share his victory over death, with us, through HIs son. We take up the proofs of resurrection today … on Faithbuilders.
Dr. Nunnally continues our conversation on the differences between cherem (Holy War) and Jihad. There’s a temptation to view the two as roughly equivalent, but they’re not. The Holy Wars declared by Yahweh and Israel are not the same as Islamic jihad. And the difference reveals God’s expectations for His people … today, on Faithbuilders.
Today’s session concludes our three part series on original sin. We are born into sin, an idea that didn’t begin with Christianity or pronouncements from St. Paul. Stretching from ancient times to the writings in the New Testament, the understanding that we came into this world with a proclivity to rebel against God is a trans-epochal observation. Today, we continue with a special focus on the intertestamental period, this week, on Faithbuilders.
