But today, some of those same heresies have reappeared, only using new labels or a different forms.

Heresies and Scripture (Part 4)

Heresies and Scripture (Part 4)
What is a heresy and why are they so important to avoid? During the first 400 years of the Christianity's existence, the church fathers wanted to ensure that the doctrine passed down from Christ and his apostles would remain uncorrupted. Thus, heresies were a significant concern. Here, Lenny will review a few of the significant heresies that the early church answered and why a proper understanding of who Jesus is can make all the difference.

Why Does God Allow Evil in the World? (Part 4)

Why Does God Allow Evil in the World? (Part 4)

In this special podcast, Lenny addresses some of our active service members—those who see evil first hand—and shows why a loving God makes sense even in the light of the evil we see in our world today.
