Absolute Truth: This Sunday at Harvest

January 30th, 2010 Posted in sermons, worldview

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

    We missed you this Sunday! But it was good to have Don McClure – he reminds me of a modern day Spurgeon.

    We wanna wish Cathe Laurie a very Happy Birthday today!

    It’s so bizzare when you see people who make up their own religion. The pick and chose Bible, what a concept and how convenient like our modern day world. The Bible makes it very clear that following Christ is an all or nothing commitment. The goal is to keep trying to follow every word, not seeing if you can come up with a better version. You’re so right, too many people are trying to make God in their own image. Trying to make a faith that fits comfortably into their life so no change, no challenge is required. I think they believe in God and believe God will take them to heaven based solely on their belief and their proclaiming His name as Holy. Makes me wonder how many have ever read the entire Bible because that is not what God told us.There are sacrifices you have to make for Him, instructions you need to strive to follow that He gave and He told us it’s a narrow path that not many will follow. The Bible also clearly states that your salvation is affected by what you do in this life as is your reward in heaven. Some are working on being the first to be taken home with Him because we want to be spared going through the tribulation He will put those “I’d rather make my own religion” believers through. Read your Bibles and follow what it says if you truly believe it is the word of God how could you do otherwise. I just don’t understand how so many people just don’t get it.
