In particular, verses 2632 explain how God gave mankind up to dishonorable passionsnotably homosexuality. Obviously, homosexuality is a huge cultural topic and matter of debate.

This Sunday we conclude our Malachi series with one of the great promises of the Old Testament.

Dear CrossPointe, While Brad is visiting our brothers and sisters in India, we're taking a break from Romans to look at texts from the Gospels. This Sunday Robert Ward is preaching through John 11, in which Jesus demonstrates his love for a family and raises their brother from the dead. It's appropriate that we'll also be coming around the Lord's Table this week, so prepa...Keep Reading
