The Scariest Word in the Bible

  • By Lance M. Bacon
Product Description
In Jesus' view, ""many"" are wrong about being right with God. They anticipate a home in heaven but will receive an eternal eviction. How can we be sure that we are not among the many? This book will help you find that answer. Presented from a pastor's heart, this work combines exegetical analysis, theological acumen, and practical ministerial insight to help you obtain and maintain a saving relationship with God. The Parable of the Sower serves as the roadmap on our journey, as it provides remarkable insight on why ""many"" seeds fail to find good ground or bring forth good fruit. Jesus also reveals how we can tap the unimaginable potential for personal and kingdom growth contained within. The first section breaks up the hard ground to reveal the deep truths of sin and salvation. The second section identifies ways to overcome the stones that prevent spiritual growth--offense, unforgiveness, fear, solitude, and complacency. The third section analyzes the postmodern worldviews, deficient theologies, materialism, and the idolatry of self that suffocates many growing Christians. Only the believer who rightly responds to God can begin to live for God and ultimately live from God. This is God's salvation. Is it yours? ""Get ready You are about to encounter a thought-provoking exploration of the scariest word in the Bible--'many.' Lance Bacon, a seasoned pastor, scholar, and servant leader, presents a relevant and poignant message that 'many might be wrong about being right with God.' The narrative encourages an honest personal inventory determining one's authentic relationship with Christ. I have one word, 'imperative'--an imperative read for every believer "" --Michael L. Baker, President, Pentecostal Theological Seminary ""In The Scariest Word in the Bible, Lance Bacon awakens a sense of urgency in the believer for winning the lost. He approaches evangelism through a detailed exegetical analysis, recalling scriptural illustrations and mandates. I have utmost confidence in Rev. Bacon's disciplined and thorough research and highly recommend this volume."" --Timothy M. Hill, Presiding Bishop/General Overseer, Church of God Lance M. Bacon is Adjunct Professor of Christian History and Theology, Christian Ethics, and Christian Ministry at Regent University. He has served as a senior pastor in the Church of God (Cleveland, Tennessee) since 2003.
