Because of the glorious Lord Jesus Christ, true life now—and eternal life forever—is yours to know and enjoy. What the Scripture reveals about Him is worth more than all knowledge, all riches, and all happiness in this world.
Lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also. Matthew 6:19-21
Some of the sharpest theological divisions among the people of God stem from disagreements in how we understand the continuity and discontinuity in the plan of God. Leaving aside those aberrant groups that assume the dietary laws and other trappings of the Mosaic economy are still in force today, there is much disagreement between various groups of believers who emphasize either continuity or discontinuity.

Where is true strength to be found? Since the Fall, human history has been a battle between the seed of the Serpent and the seed of the woman.

Our Lord has many titles that highlight glorious facets of His character, nature, and ministry.

Over the years, the emphasis on social justice began to outstrip the emphasis on evangelism. This philosophy infiltrated conservative evangelicalism in the early 1990s, and now there is a large debate over what the mission of Christ was, what the mission of the church is, and how social justice relates to both.

The idea that sin defiles the sinner (and sometimes, those with whom he or she interacts) is a fundamental tenet of hamartiology (the study of sin). Indeed, this is the root reason for the imagery and theology of defilement and uncleanness in the OT Law, and that the Law commanded and provided a means to cleansing speaks to the innate need for just that in our relationship to God, other people, and His world.
