The Word of the Cross

From Series: The Pastor's Study, Volume 6

1 Corinthians 1:18  (ID: 2741)

The cross stands as the definitive point of history, but the Church is in danger of so trivializing the notion of sin that the cross of Christ loses its meaning. Using the example of the Apostle Paul, Alistair Begg explains that pastors must preach Christ and Him crucified at every opportunity. The Gospel, in all of its fullness, provides the only remedy for our greatest need: forgiveness and reconciliation to a holy God.


Christ the Wisdom and Power of God

18For the word of the cross is folly to those who are perishing, but to us who are being saved it is the power of God.
