Resolved 2009

The Resolved Conference

June 12-15, 2009
Palm Springs Convention Center

In a strange and wonderful irony, the greatest problem on Earth is resolved by the greatest reality in Heaven.

Sin - it is the poisonous nature of humanity. The depth and breadth of sin is evident everywhere in our world. It is the fundamental principle in every person and the driving momentum of every society. From our first parents in Eden to infants drawing their first breath this day, every human is infected with sin's rebellion against God and His Word. As the Christmas carol languishes, "long lay the world in sin and error pining."

"But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us" (Romans 5:8). This is the reality from Heaven that resolves sin. The gospel of Jesus Christ is God’s amazing and solitary resolution for sin and sinners. The death of Jesus stands forever as God's most glorious act. And it was for the purpose of defeating sin.

Resolved 2009 will focus on sin. What is sin? How bad is it? Where did it come from? How can I be saved from it and its consequences? Is it possible to stop? Our 5th Resolved Conference will explore these questions and provide biblical answers.

John Owen wrote, "Be killing sin, or it will be killing you."
I cannot wait until the confrence. The last time I went was in 2007, and it was such a wonderful time of learning about our God.
