In 2009, a Barna poll revealed that Americans are more interested in faith and spirituality than they are in Christianity.
Barna said that Americans increasingly want to shape their own faith experience, in his words, “concoct[ing] a uniquely personal brand of faith.”
“What they’ve done is they have put together a whole series of beliefs and a series of religious practices and a series of relationships and connections–all of that that makes sense to them and helps them to feel good about themselves,” Barna said.
The result of a faith of our own making and and a God made in our very own image
My question is, will this faith we have created at whim and this god we have imagined be able to save us in the final days?
The answer, of course, is no. God is who He says He is, not who simply want Him to be.
Thinking and living biblically
This Sunday at Harvest, we are beginning a new teaching series.
We have just completed our 35-message series that I called Essentials: What Every Christian Needs to Know. We have looked at God, His attributes, and His character. We have looked at Jesus Christ, His deity, and His humanity. We examined the unseen world of angels, demons, and the devil.
We have looked at heaven, hell, and end times events. We have looked at topics like salvation, faith, the Bible, and much more.
This is the foundation that we build our lives on as Christians.
Now, we come to the follow-up series to Essentials, which I am calling Worldview: Thinking and Living Biblically.
Do you have a Christian worldview?
Not every believer necessarily has a true biblical worldview. Do you?
Find out what a Christian worldview is, and how to have one this Sunday morning at Harvest.
Our services are at 7:45 A.M., 9:45 A.M., and 11:45 A.M. This message will also be webcast live at harvest.org.
This and that
