What does the Bible mean when it says that Christians have died to sin?

How is it possible for a just God to justify the ungodly without becoming unjust Himself?

What is regeneration? What is justification?  Why do all men desperately need to be justified?

If I have died to sin, why am I still affected by it? As a Christian, am I the new man or the old man or both?

What does the Bible mean when it says that Christians have died to the Law?

Are Christians still slaves to sin?

The answers to these and many other questions become clear once we gain a Biblical understanding of justification and regeneration. These two great miracles lie at the very heart of the gospel, yet even among genuine Christians they are surrounded by confusion and ignorance. The aim of this conference is to set forth in clear Biblical light the nature and characteristics of justification and regeneration that God may be glorified and His children brought to know more fully the liberty that is theirs in Christ.

This year's speaker is Charles Leiter. Charles grew up in a nominally Christian home, but was a total stranger to the true gospel until he was nearly 16 years of age. It was then that he heard for the first time that one must be born again in order to enter the kingdom of heaven. That night, through the powerful convicting work of the Holy Spirit, he was given a glimpse of his lost condition and of the surpassing glories of Christ as the divine Savior of lost sinners.

Charles lives in Kirksville, Missouri, with his wife, Mona and their five children. He has served as co-pastor of Lake Road Chapel since 1974, and has written two books (Justification and Regeneration and The Law of Christ). He has been a conference speaker in the United States and overseas.
