How Do We Understand Violence in the Bible?

August 26, 2015

“The Old Testament gives us the story of God’s judgment when sins had reached their fullness.”

Pastor Colin recently joined Jerry Rose on Significant Insights, a TLN program that seeks to answer peoples’ hardest questions about Christianity. In this episode, Pastor Colin addresses these five questions:

  • Why are so many Christians living like non-Christians?
  • What is the biblical view of cremation?
  • What will heaven be like?
