Jesus, You and the Essentials of Christianity - 11 What is God Like?
Where does Life’s Compass Point? Jesus, You, and the Essentials of Christianity
Episode 11: What is God Like? Feel God’s Grace and Love through the Story of the Lost Sons
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?
In this episode, Frank unpacks the famous prodigal son passage, in which he reveals that BOTH sons were lost— not just the one who ran off an squandered his inheritance, but also his self-righteous older brother who thought the Father owed him. You’ll see how this often misunderstood parable actually demonstrates the inspiring nature of God’s grace and unconditional love.
