Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Teachers of Trash, not Truth” based on II Peter 2:1-9:

  • False teachers mix an element of truth with lies to make it palatable.
  • The so-called “prosperity gospel” is garbage, not gospel.
  • The “word of faith” movement is trash, not truth.
  • God NEVER promises that He will make you rich and keep you well.
  • God promises that He will walk through the difficult times with you, not keep you from walking through them at all.

We had a great day yesterday with visitors in both services!  Here are some “sound bites” from the morning sermon, “My Grace Is Sufficient” based on 2 Corinthians 12:7-10

  • America is being fed garbage and being told it is the Gospel.
  • The Gospel nor the Bible NEVER promises for you to be rich or healthy or happy.
  • God does promise that you will have hardships.
  • God promises that He will be with you in those difficult times.
  • The True Gospel is that God loves us so much that He sent Jesus to die on our behalf that if we believe in Him, we’ll have eternal life instead of being separated from Him for eternity.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “God’s Bail-Out Plan” based on Acts 4:8-12:

  • The economy is in crisis.  We got that way by the irresponsible actions of many.
  • The government has tried/is trying multiple “bailout plans” to rescue the economy.
  • Two of the bailout plans seem to have failed.  The third may not do much either.
  • Our spiritual condition is in crisis.  We got that we because we sin.
  • We have tried multiple ways to get ourselves out of this mess, but nothing seems to work.
  • God decided that HE would take charge of the situation and bail us out.
  • God became Flesh and dwelt among us as Jesus Christ.
  • Jesus died for us on the cross, taking our punishment upon Him.
  • If we accept His act on our behalf, we are “bailed out” of our sin debt.
  • If we do not accept Jesus’ act on the cross, we must face the full wrath of God.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday Morning’s sermon, “I Am the Truth” based on John 14:6 and John 3.

  • Truth isn’t dependent upon a situation or circumstance.
  • Truth is truth.  Just because you decide to call a cow’s tail a “leg” doesn’t make it a leg.  It is still a tail.
  • Jesus said that He was “the Truth”.
  • Jesus explained to Nicodemus what He meant when He said, “For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in Him will not perish, but have ever lasting life.”
  • If we understand this truth, it will transform our lives and our eternities!

There is no Sunday evening sermon, as we had a special guest speaker whose presentation we aren’t able to present on the internet due to security concerns.  He spoke about his service with the US Army in Iraq and gave his testimony as to how God is working there among our military and among the Iraqis.  It was a truly inspirational service.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s sermon, “Mean What You Say”, based on Matthew 5:33-37.

  • Oaths and vows became a way for people to lie.
  • If people swore “by God”, then they were answerable to God.
  • If people sower “by heaven” or “by Jerusalem”, they could get away with lying.
  • Jesus said to mean what you say.
  • Jesus said to not swear at all, just simply tell the truth all the time.
  • Let your “yes” be a real “yes”, and your “no” be a real “no.  Don’t make it conditional.

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “Set Free!” based on Romans 8:1-8:

  • Before we accept Christ, we are “condemned captives”.
  • Our condemnation is eternal separation from God in Hell.
  • We are condemned because we have sinned.
  • However, Jesus became in on our behalf that we might be righteous to God.
  • Jesus took the full brunt of the wrath of God.
  • We then are preserved for eternity with God in Heaven.
  • We are rescued & redeemed.
  • There are those who do not know this good news and are going to face the full wrath of God.
  • We must make every effort to share Jesus with them.

Here are some “Sound Bites” from yesterday morning’s sermon, “A Convenient Morality” based on Romans 1:18-32:

  • We alter God’s word to make it convenient for us and to excuse our sins.
  • When people suppress God’s truth, there are consequences.
  • When people quit honoring God and start serving themselves, there are consequences.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to the lust of their hearts.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to degrading passions.
  • The consequences include God giving them over to a depraved mind.
  • The solution is to return to God.
  • Don’t get too judgmental regarding the sin of others. God hates your sin, too.

Here are some “sound bites” from yesterday morning sermon, “Deeds of the Flesh” based on Galatians 5:16-21:

  • We humans try to do good, but often end up falling way short of what we want to do.
  • Instead of doing good, we do awful, despicable, unimaginable evil deeds.
  • These evil deeds are the result of our taking control of our lives and trying to be our own boss.
  • We hurt others when we do these bad things.
  • Unbelievers sometimes do good things; believers sometimes do bad things.
  • The list of the bad things shouldn’t characterize the life/lifestyle of a believer.
  • You can get out of the rut of these sin habits by asking Jesus into your heart.
