Something Else is Going On

Something Else is Going On

The violent portraits of God in the Old Testament are a stumbling block for many. In this short clip, Greg introduces the idea that “something else is going on” in these passages, and that we can begin to see this something else when we put our complete trust in the character of God as fully revealed in Christ’s self-sacrificial love displayed on the cross.

This is the first sermon in a series introducing the basic ideas offered in Greg’s forthcoming book Crucifixion of the Warrior God. You can view the full sermon on the Woodland Hills Church website.

How The Imperfections of Scripture Reveal God Perfectly

In my previous blog I discussed one important implication of a cruciform (“cross-centered”) approach to biblical inspiration. On the cross, I noted, God revealed his perfection by identifying with human imperfection. Jesus in some sense became our sin and our curse. In this light, I argued, why should anyone find it surprising, let alone disturbing,…
