Mike takes up the theme of earlier videos concerning hell and why God sends people there in this video from Christianity.com. Today is the day of salvation and that is the message that needs to be proclaimed to a world condemned because of its sin and its deserving of God’s just wrath.
Christianity.com asked Mike about the importance of studying theology for Christians. Mike discusses this by comparing our desire to gain knowledge in our other relationships… or even our iPhones.

Over five hundred years before the time of Christ, Jeremiah prophesied that the days would come when God would “make a new covenant with the house of Israel” (Jer. 31:31). So how is this new covenant fulfilled in Jesus’ life and sacrificial death? How is it different from the old covenant received by Moses on Mount Sinai?

White Horse Inn: Know what you believe and why you believe it.
The Friday edition of the Christianity.com video interview of Mike Horton asks him to respond to Christians who claim to be “spiritual” but not “religious.” Mike responds by saying that Christians shouldn’t be either, but to be gospel-focused looking to the incarnate Christ.
A proper understanding of faith helps resolve the question of “how much do I need to believe in order to be saved?” Dr. Horton discusses this in the next Christianity.com video.
As we continue our trek through Mike’s Christianity.com videos we come to Mike discussing why we can be certain that God exists and that he is the one true God.
