    Why should Christians remember Lot’s wife? Just like Sodom and Gomorrah, before Christ’s return, the world will be saturated with evil. Christians are warned to come out of the world and not be a part of it.

    Opening illustration: If a person sees a house on fire and does everything he can to rescue the occupants, he is heralded as a hero. And that’s the way it should be. Why is it, then, that a Christian who accepts what God says in the Bible about hell and tries to warn people is ridiculed as an ...read more

    Three men each making a statement regarding his commitment or lack of commitment to following Christ. Each wanted to follow Christ; none wanted to stop looking back. Their commitment can be described as limited, delayed, and insincere.

    This message is the fifth in a series that deals with some of the difficult sayings of Jesus. This message looks at Jesus' warning in regard to looking back.

    At first glance Jesus sounds very harsh as He addresses someone that sincerely wanted to follow Him. What’s wrong with wanting to tell His family goodbye?
