Questions?

The church has a clear and concise message of truth for a culture that is struggling to find our way in the darkness. We will focus on giving Biblical answers to some of the most pressing questions of our culture in this summer sermon series. I’ve been troubled by recent answers religious leaders have given to these questions in the media.

  1. Loved the comment about “sbestos”. :) I guess I’m a nerd, too. What song is that? It ‘s a tad bit hard to hear.

    One practical question: As I’m interacting with people, how do I move the conversation in a spiritual direction? “Are you saved?” doesn’t really work very well anymore, as a starter question. I imagine that, “Are you going to hell when you die?” might be a bit tough, too. What works for you?

      The song is “The only fire” by the Primitives. You can find it on youtube. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aFVVFsU8lvU
      This question can begin a spiritual dialogue, “What do you think will happen to you when you die?” Once they give their answer, then ask, “Did you know the Bible has a lot to say about that? Would you be interested in discussing it?”

  2. We once did a bible study of Chuck Colson’s book, “How now shall we live” which is very good reading. His approach is based on a persons world view, and from that perspective he then tries to break down false world views. One of his favorite quotes from the bible comes from Acts 17:23 where Paul speaks to the Athenians about their unknown god. He could have quoted Old Testament Ten Commandments to them, and given them the riot act so to speak. He also could have used the approach that God commanded Jonah to preach to the people of Nineveh to repent as well, but chose to speak to them in terms that they could understand, based on their world view. Its a good approach, because everybody does not respond the same way to the same approach when it comes to spiritual direction. I highly recommend reading this book.
