KR04: Multiple=8/23/08

Multiple Personalities Religion is where our Christianity is just tacked on as one in a long list of “personalities” that describe who we are. Sure we’re Christians but we are also a lot of other great things. What gets our primary attention is determined by what we see as most interesting or urgent at the moment.

“Who are you? Most people would answer by listing the many things that they do. I’m a rancher/business owner, family person, I play golf, I do artwork, I’m a Christian, I go to church, I go to work…

But if we are to have a Christian world view, then, when we describe ourselves, we would simply say, “I’m a Christian-A follower of Jesus Christ.” We are first and foremost a Christian and the other things that we do are under that main heading. “Because I’m a Christian I have a job that fits into my values as a Christian.” “Because I’m a Christian I spend time with my family to bring them to Jesus.”

KR03: Grayed Out Religion

KR03 Grayed Out Religion8/9/08

Grayed-out Religion is the idea that there are no absolutes; no black and white, right and wrong. Whatever seems good in a person’s own eyes is good.

Grayed-out Religion contradicts itself. You see the statement that there is no absolute truth is, itself, an absolute statement.

Abraham Lincoln once asked, “How many legs would a sheep have if you called its tail a leg?” “Five!” came the answer. The president then said, “No, it would only have four legs. Calling a tail a leg doesn’t make it one.”

This sermon addresses the important questions relating to postmodernism such as: Is there really a such thing as right and wrong? What is the definition of right and wrong and good and evil? Is sin still a sin if I don’t know it’s a sin? Is sin still a sin if something good comes out of it? Are you too proud to admit that you have sin?
