One of the paradoxes of Christianity is that the grand and glorious Cross is both a place of life and of death, a place of victory and of suffering. It is this Cross that all history hangs upon—the epicenter of history. In this message, Eric Ludy examines this epicenter and declares that it is Christ and Him crucified that must remain at the center of our lives. The secret to Christianity, to understanding the Scriptures, and to living a victorious Christian life all comes down to a focus of the simplicity that is in Christ (2 Corinthians 11:3). This sermon is a study in the single most important thing of all time—Jesus Himself.
