Unraveling Infant Damnation and Original Sin | Nick Shalna

Where do infants and children go when they pass away without having professed faith in Christ? While many theologians have struggled to provide an adequate answer throughout church history, the issue that so many cannot get around is the concept of “original guilt”. If a baby is born with original guilt, how could they possibly avoid punishment for sin? Join us to find out why you can be confident that infants and children go to heaven. 

Letting Go of The Horns of The Altar | Nick Shalna

Why was Joab found desperately holding on to the “horns” of the altar? Is there anything you are holding onto in hopes of finding security such as money, pride, happiness, or even other people? While these are mostly good things, nothing can save us apart from trusting in the sufficiency of Christ and His willingness to die in our place. Are you willing to let go of the “horns of the altar” to take hold of Christ?

Laying Down The Law | Matthew 5:17-20

What does it mean for Jesus to have fulfilled the Law of Moses? Do Christians abide by a strict code or can we do whatever we want without consequence? How does understanding the two parties involved in Matthew 5-7, Jesus and the Pharisees, change the way we understand this passage? Nick Shalna explains the difference between the Law of Moses and the Law of Christ, and how the Christian should live in regard to this!

No Neutrality | Luke 6:6-11 | Nick Shalna

What was Jesus response to the Pharisees rejecting His compassion for a man suffering on the Sabbath Day? In this exposition of Luke 6:6-11, we see that there is no such thing as neutrality. Jesus turns the question on those opposing Him as to whether it is better to do good on the Sabbath or to do evil, but “nothing” is not an option. It is easy as Christians to think we may just take the “middle ground” position on Biblical and cultural issues, but Christ tells us that there is no such thing. Don’t be afraid to be a Christian extremist!
