Truth Quest Update: Jesus Was Baptized

Jesus came from Galilee to be baptized by John in the Jordan River. Wait a second. John was calling people to a baptism of repentance. Sinners need repentance, but Jesus never sinned. (See Heb. 4:15; 2 Cor. 5:21.) So why did Jesus come to be baptized? Jesus answered John, “Allow it for now, because this is the way for us to fulfill all righteousness” (Matt. 3:1...

Is it Ever Okay to Complain to God?

After Sunday's message on Exodus 16-17, Grace for the Grumbler, one of the repeated questions I heard was related to this idea, "Is it ever okay to complain to God?"

Where do we cross of the l...

Truth Quest Update: Jesus Was Born
