Grayed-out Religion

16 Mar

Grayed-out Religion

We live in a world that insists that whatever you believe is truth is true for you. It’s called postmodernism. The idea that all truth is relative, and there is no absolute right or wrong. What’s right to you is right for you but not necessarily for me. Instead of black and white truths everything is seen in a grey area based on individual opinion. What does the Bible say about this?

NOTE: For the first half of the video the audio drops out when the slides show. This problem is solved about half way through.

Who Are You?5/10/08

Who are you? Most people would answer that question with their name, some might tell you of their occupation. But while your name and occupation may tell me a lot about what you like to do and how to address you they don’t fully answer the question, “who are you” or should I say, “what are you?”. The nature of mankind may not seem to be something that is of great concern to you, after all, you are human and can’t change that, but a misunderstanding of this topic has lead to many unfortunate problems. Prejudice, atheism (evolution), fear of ghosts, and many people hopelessly going through life not knowing where they’re going or what their point is, all these stem from not knowing “who you are”. So let’s see what our creator says about us.

Sorry the recording is a little messed up but you can still get the main point if you want to listen

Reviving the Third Angel's Message4/26/08

 

Imagine you’re going to visit a friend at their home for the first time. He’s given you a map with detailed instructions and many landmarks to make sure you don’t get lost. Just as you come to the last turn you see that there is a house that looks exactly like he said his does and it’s exactly where he said it would be. You knock on the door at it is indeed his house. Would you be surprised? Of course not! Yet many people are surprised, even scandalized, when they see the fulfillment of prophecy in the proclamation of the third angel’s message. This is not a new message. In fact in 1889 Ellen white, one of the founders of our church wrote,

“Several have written to me, inquiring if the message of justification by faith is the third angel’s message, and I have answered, ‘It is the third angel’s message in verity.’”–Review and Herald, April 1, 1890.


But sometimes when we preach righteousness by faith people say, “It’s a new, liberal message” or “It’s cheap grace”! I say, “It’s good news-the Gospel.” Today, we’ll spend some talking about that all important message.

$5.00 Car!?!

Imagine I have a friend whose name is Bill. He decides I should have a new car so he goes to the Ford dealer and picks out a brand new shiny red Mustang with all the bells and whistles, pays cash for it and drives it to my house. He tosses me the keys and says, “Here, this is my free gift to you.”

That’s pretty cool, huh? Now, imagine that I say,” That’s too great of a gift, here, let me help pay for it.” and I pull out a five dollar bill and give it to him to help pay for the car. Then I drive the car to another friend’s house and say, “Check out the car my friend Bill and I bought together!”

What an insult to Bill and his gift! Yet many people do the same thing with Jesus’ free gift of salvation. Read or listen to this sermon to find out how!
