Guilty As Charged

Did you know that there is one prosecuting attorney who infallibly proves his case? He is the Holy Spirit, whom Jesus sent to convict the world of sin, righteousness, and judgment. This old world system in which we live constantly protests its innocence, but there is no way to get around the verdict.

But now you must ask yourself, "Do I know how the world is guilty?" Many professing followers of Christ seem quite unaware of how the world is guilty, and so they have difficulty discerning worldliness even when it is staring them in the face. In order to perceive the world's guilt, join us this Lord's Day.
