062: The Word of Faith Is Near You (Romans Series #23: Rom. 10)

The Romans Road method of witnessing typically culminates in Rom. 10:9, 13, with a plea to be saved by confessing the Lord Jesus and calling upon the name of the Lord. However, this is not how “salvation” is used in the book of Romans. Pastor Hollandsworth explains that salvation for national Israel is deliverance from God’s wrath and consequent destruction. For individual children of God – both Jews and Gentiles – it is deliverance from sinning and self-destruction. He also points out the meaning of “the word of faith” and in what sense it is “near you.”


050: Fire and Brimstone

What is the lake of fire, and why is it described as burning with fire and brimstone? Is it literal or metaphorical? Pastor Hollandsworth attempts to answer these questions through the lens of an Old Testament type.


047: What Happens When We Die?

Do believers go to Heaven and unbelievers go to Hell when they die, or do all remain “asleep” until the future resurrection and judgment? Pastor Hollandsworth searches the Scriptures to see if the Intermediate State position, held by most Christians, is biblical.


046: Not the Hell You Might Think

The English word “Hell” should never have been used in English translations of the New Testament, because it conveys the wrong meaning of the Greek words Hades and Gehenna, which should have been transliterated. Pastor Hollandsworth gives the correct meaning of these words and shows what a profound difference it makes in the study of Scripture.


033: Great in the Kingdom

Jesus said that to enter the kingdom one must have righteousness that exceeds that of the scribes and Pharisees. Pastor Hollandsworth defines what it means to enter the kingdom, what characterizes the righteousness of the Pharisees, what is greater than pharisaical righteousness, and how we can fulfill the righteous of the law.
