When it comes to subjects such as race, sexuality, or political direction, the Bible has no shortage of what God has to say about them. But such a collection of difficult topics can raise a lot of questions—which is why Dr. Tony Evans is here to answer as many as he can. Join him in this special Q&A series titled Hot Topics: Culture Wars where he answers your questions on some of the most controversial subjects of the Bible.
#1 – Culture Wars (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): In any given culture, it’s no question that sooner or later you will encounter conflicts between groups of people based on their differing ideologies, experiences, or world views. In this lesson, Tony Evans introduces us to these conflicts he refers to as cultural wars, along with how we can hope to work through them as a society.
#2 – Race (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): The issue of racism can be defined as the exercise of power to discriminate or oppress others. But if we are to overcome such an issue in our country, it’s important to start with our common ground. In this lesson, Tony Evans uses Scripture to discuss the legitimate and illegitimate ways we are to treat one another as he answers your questions on the problematic topic of racism.
#3 – Politics (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): From beginning to end, the Bible is full of politics and how it pertains to how a nation is to be run. But should the church even be involved in politics, or how should a Christian actually vote? Tony Evans answers these questions and many more in this look at God’s standards in politics.
#4 – Sex within Marriage (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): In our society today, it can be quite a challenge to remain pure before marriage. But God doesn’t lay down boundaries on our sexuality to limit us, He does so to protect us. Join Tony Evans in this look at God’s definition of gender identity along with the struggles of sexuality that Christians face and how they should respond to them biblically.
#5 – Sexuality (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): It can be a difficult process to accept something that is different than us, especially when the Bible declares it to be wrong. But Tony Evans wants to remind you of the importance of expressing compassion and love to those who need it, even when it’s difficult. Learn more about the many subjects of sexuality and how believers in Christ are supposed to act when faced with such realities.
#6 – The Problem of Pain (2 Chronicles 15:3-6): Have you ever been asked the question, “If God is so good, then why do we live in such a bad world?” It can be confusing to try to understand the goodness of God in the midst of painful times, but Tony Evans wants to reassure you that our God is indeed a good God. Join him as he discusses his own personal experiences and how faith in God’s truths can see you through any situation.
