Jesus, You and the Essentials of Christianity - 1 What’s Wrong with You and the World?
Where does Life’s Compass Point?
Jesus, You, and the Essentials of Christianity
Imagine that you get lost way out in the forest and your only hope of getting out alive is to follow direction from a magnetic compass. But instead of the compass pointing to magnetic north, the compass always points to you. How helpful would that compass be? Not at all!
Why then do so many of us live as if life’s compass points to us? Do we get to decide what life’s purpose is and how to live it? Or, is there an objective purpose to life and a right way to live it?
Join Dr. Frank Turek as he highlights God’s purposes for our lives and the essentials truths of Christianity. In this 17-part series filmed for TV, you’ll get practical answers to these and other important questions:
- What’s wrong with you and the world?
- What is the Bible all About?
- How do we interpret the Bible?
- What is God like?
- Who is Jesus?
- What is the Trinity?
- Why is the Resurrection so important?
- What is God’s solution to our brokenness?
- What is faith and why does God want it?
- How should we live then?
Episode 1: What’s Wrong with You and the World?
In this first episode, Frank demonstrates that everyone, regardless of their religious beliefs, has a problem— we’ve all violated the self-evident moral standard and routinely make excuses for doing so. This is important to Christianity because if we don’t have a problem, then we don’t need a Savior. You’ll see that:
1.There are no “self-made” people. We are all massively dependent.
2.The world is broken because we are broken.
3.We discover truth; we don’t determine it
4.We often follow a bad compass– usually the one that points to us and is often based on our feelings.
5.We can’t find a solution until we admit these truths.
