Lance Lewis, pastor of Christ Liberation Fellowship in Philadelphia, PA, will address the theme: "The Old Bait & Switch: Did Calvary Offer an Opportunity for Redemption or Did it Redeem? (An African American's Journey into Reformed Christianity".
As Pastor Lewis so aptly put it: "Why must we hold to and promote [Reformed] theology? We must do so because it is the truth. It is the truth about God, his Son, and his salvation. We must do so because it brings glory to God. I am in full agreement with the answer to the first question of the Westminster Shorter Catechism. The question is: 'What is the chief end of man?' The answer: 'Man's chief end is to glorify God and enjoy him forever.' We must do so because black people will find ourselves, our dignity, our purpose, and our destiny only when we confess and agree with the song of the apostle Paul in Romans 11:
'Oh, the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of God! How unsearchable are his judgments and how inscrutable his ways!'..."
Pastor Lance Lewis also contributed a chapter to the book "Glory Road: The Journey of Ten African-Americans into Reformed Christianity" (see http://www.crossway.org/search?q=Glory+Road ).
