Works of God

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

How Big Is God?

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

The Sovereignty of God: Part Seven

'Personal' from John W. Ritenbaugh

One aspect of sovereignty that causes some confusion is predestination. God's sovereignty does not remove a person's free moral agency — we must still choose.

Who Is the 'God of This World'? (Part One)

Sermonette by David C. Grabbe

Translators use a lowercase "g" in "god of this age [or, world]" in II Corinthians 4:4, yet it is the true God who blinds; He alone opens and closes eyes.

Sovereignty, Election, and Grace (Part 7)

The Sacrifices of Leviticus (Part 1)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh
