Guest: Matthew Fletcher, Senior Pastor, First Baptist Church, Weymouth, MA
It’s not an overstatement to say that one’s understanding of the attributes of God (His nature and character) determines everything … from the way we approach Him, to our view of the world around us, to how we live our lives.
Just this week, USA Today ran a story about a survey performed by two sociologists from Baylor University regarding Americans’ view of God. The results show that people see God one of four ways: authoritative, benevolent, critical, or distant.
Are any of these four views biblically correct? And what about the love of God — does His love trump all His other attributes like His wrath or justice?
Matthew Fletcher, senior pastor of First Baptist Church in Weymouth, Massachusetts, attended the conference and will join us this weekend on The Christian Worldview to explain why a biblical view of God’s attributes is so important and how we can develop a better understanding of the King of the Universe.
Congratulations to the following five winners who will each receive free registration ($100+ value) to the Expositors’ Conference:
Joshua Morgan, Louisville, KY
Jeff Keeney, Chesapeake, VA
Kirby Myers, Indianapolis, IN
John Anderson, Klamath Falls, OR
Scott Poling, Oswego, IL
The Christian Worldview is giving away five FREE registration tickets to the Expositors’ Conference featuring Dr. R.C. Sproul and Dr. Steven Lawson September 27-28, 2010 in Mobile, AL.
Theme: The highest aim in expository preaching is soli deo gloria—the glory of God alone. No pulpit can rise higher than its lofty view of God. As the proclamation of God goes, so goes the pulpit—and as the pulpit goes, so goes the church. Everything in ministry hinges on a towering view of God.
We will announce the five winners on Saturday, August 21st on the radio program and this website. We will also email the winners directly. Each winner will receive FREE registration for themselves and their spouse to the conference ($150 value).
To submit your name for the raffle:
Email your first and last name, mailing address, and phone number to feedback@TheChristianWorldview.com

Guest: Dr. R.C. Sproul, founder and theologian, Ligonier Ministries
“Holy, holy, holy.” It’s the only description of God that is repeated three times for emphasis. Above all, God is holy, perfectly holy. Yet the holiness of God – and the believer’s responsibility to be holy – is a neglected topic in the church today when it is actually the launching point for understanding God and man’s need for salvation and sanctification.
The holiness of God is the theme of this year’s Ligonier National Conference in Orlando, March 19-21. Dr. R.C. Sproul, founder and theologian of Ligonier Ministries, will join me this Saturday to discuss this topic and his upcoming book, The Prayer of the Lord.
