Where does a Christian begin when trying to explain the supremacy of Christ? Why Christianity over skepticism, Buddhism, Hinduism, Islam or Secular Humanism? There are four questions that demonstrate that Christianity is the most reasonable worldview. One does not have to be an expert on world religions and philosophies to present an adequate defense of the gospel. If you can answer “YES” to these 4 questions, then Christianity is true and it’s the only view of the world that correctly explains: who we are, where we came from, why we are here, and where are we going.
Aubrey Ballard joins me today to discuss the New Testament's teaching on alcohol. The Bible commands about abstaining from alcohol are pure and simple. That doesn't mean that it is always easy to accept, but when we are willing to consider the Scriptures, the conclusion that we read is simple to understand.
A Bible chain for abstinence from alcohol that we're discussing today includes: 1 Peter 4:3-4; Luke 12:45-46; Ephesians 5:18; 1 Thessalonians 5:7; Acts 24:25; 1 Corinthians 9:25; 1 Peter 5:8; 1 Timothy 5:23.

JoinGeorge Battey and Jonathan Edwards discuss how predictive prophecy was used in the Old Testament to accomplish the will of God. Discover the seven purposed through these three episodes.
1. Predictive Prophecy distinguished the true God from false gods (Isaiah 41:21-24; 42:8-9; 48:3-5).
2. Predictive Prophecy validated true prophets (Numbers 12:6-8, Deuteronomy 18:9-13; 14-22).
3. Predictive Prophecy verified other predictions of the future (Isaiah 8:7-8 + chapters 36-37, etc.).
4. Predictive Prophecy was necessary to explain the exile to later generations (Isaiah 36:18-2-; 27:9-13; Deuteronomy 32:26-27).
5. Predictive Prophecy was necessary because deliverance takes time (Jer. 25:11, Lev. 25:1-7, 2 Ch. 36:20-21).
6. Predictive Prophecy was necessary to show that God is sovereign (Daniel 4:29-37).
7. Predictive Prophecy proved that the word of God is trustworthy (Psalm 22:30-31).
