Overview

GOD’S CODE OF CONDUCT IS AS RELEVANT AND INSISTENT TODAY AS IT’S ALWAYS BEEN.

The landscape of contemporary society reveals signs that we neither know nor care much about the Law of God. There is:

·        An absence of a true and realistic understanding of the seriousness of sin.

·        Superficial preaching that appeals to man’s felt needs and affection.

·        A general listlessness and lawlessness in the lives of professing Christians.

·        An absence of the fear of God in public worship and private living.

·         A tendency for churches to rely on strategies borrowed from business and psychology.

·        A growing confidence in ourselves and an accompanying loss of confidence in God and His Word.


Pathway to Freedom
will challenge you to think long and hard about the significance of God’s Law.  It has dynamic implications for how each of us lives every day.

“We have entered into a time of moral crisis  in our culture and in the church as well.   Stories about divorce, adultery, and the individualized picking and choosing of doctrines abound. Pathway to Freedom is forthright and necessary teaching that today’s church cannot afford to ignore. How now shall we live? The beginning of the answer must be in obedient to God’s moral law summarized in the Ten Commandments.”
—CHARLES COLSON, PRISON FELLOWSHIP MINISTRIES, WASHINGTON, D.C.

ALISTAIR BEGG has been the senior pastor at Parkside Church in suburban Cleveland, Ohio since 1983. He is the daily speaker on the national radio program Truth For Life, which is carried on more than 700 radio outlets. He is the author of Made For His Pleasure, Lasting Love, What Angels Wish They Knew, and The Hand of God. He and his wife, Susan, have three grown children.

Read an Excerpt


Surveys in this "new age of faith" reveal that more than three-fourths of all Americans believe that "many religions can lead to eternal life." Staggeringly, nearly half of those who identify themselves as "highly committed" evangelicals agree with this statement. The extent of the confused muddle-headedness is frightful but no surprising. It is hear that the battle rages, and it is here that we must take our stand. Instead of mumbling some mushy religious pluralism, we need to be prepared to take our Bibles in hand and graciously, yet courageously, declare a worldview that begins with the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who in the person of His son Jesus (with whom He and the holy Spirit are co-equal and co-eternal) has stepped out of eternity and into time, demonstrating that He is neither anonymous nor vague.

    Wake up call.

    Just being good isnt getting you anywhere. Alstair show us. How living under the law gets us nowhere to. Being a Christian and living under grace and being indebted to mercy. We have all fallen short.
