False teachings, the throne of Satan, a double edge sword, and some interesting historical twists. We continue our “Dear Church” series with the letter written to the church of Pergamum. We’ll be discussing what all this means and if any of it is relevant to the church today.
Today we continue our “Dear Church” series with the letter addressed to the Church of Smyrna. Smyrna is unique in that there is no correction or rebuke as with the other churches who received letters (with one exception). We’ll look into the circumstances surrounding the church and talk about persecution and how it affects us today.
Today we start a new series called “Dear Church”. We’ll be looking at the letters that Jesus wrote (during John’s Revelation) to seven churches in Asia Minor. Today we look at the first letter written to the Church of Ephesus. Jesus commends the church for their hard work and perseverance, but rebukes them for forgetting that the church was their “first love”. We discuss what it means to make the church your first love, and how we as Christians should examine the world through the lens of Christ first, before anything else.
In the series finale of FAQs we discuss the question “How is Christianity different from other religions?” This topic will tie in much of what we talked about throughout our series. Is there really that big of a difference? Don’t all religions just lead eventually to God? We talk about all these things and more.
Out with the old and in with the new, right? What is the point of reading the Old Testament if we have a new one? Is the Old Testament even relevant in our modern lives? As we continue our discussion of frequently asked questions that are encountered in Christianity we turn our attention to the first thirty nine books of the bible and talk about the relevance is has in our lives.
Today we tackle a delicate questions as we continue our FAQs series. There are so many misconceptions and misunderstandings about heaven. Death is never an easy topic to cover, but we have hope in Jesus! Those who believe don’t need to fear death, but a questions that is often pondered is “Will I be able to recognize my loved ones in heaven?” We’ll turn to scripture for answers as we seek our answer.
This week we try our hand at some apologetics. No we’re not saying sorry for anything. Apologetics is the reasoned defense of something. Simply put apologetics is used to make a logical defense of the Christian faith. So today we discuss the frequently asked question “is there any historical evidence of the Resurrection”?
We continue our FAQ’s series by looking at a question that breaks the mold of a “frequently asked question”. That question is “Why is sin such a big deal?” This is one of those questions that don’t often get asked directly, but often is the root question to many deeper conversations of faith. We’ll dive deep into this topic an discuss what sin is all about, what our preconceived notions are, where we struggle and what the solution ultimately is.
Today we’re starting a new series called “FAQ’s”. During our time in ministry we’ve stumbled upon some questions that tend to repeat themselves over the years. And we feel these frequently asked questions should be discussed. Sometimes the Bible can very difficult to understand, which might lead one to ask why God make it that way. Did God intentionally make His word hard to understand or are there other factors in play here?
Today we’re wrapping up our “Stuff Jesus Said” series. Jesus had so many amazing things to say during his ministry on earth. His final words on the cross though might be among the most powerful. With these words the universe was forever changed. Nothing would ever be the same.
