Idolatry ~ Injustice

There are Sunday School answers for questions, and then there are answers the Bible gives for questions. Now, am I taking a cheap shot at Sunday School? No. I say "Sunday School" answers as a way of describing the common answers to questions and issues people have (in relation to the Bible). I also say "Sunday School" because, often, "Sunday School" is associated with children (just as school is). Again, this is not disparaging; rather, it is descriptive. And I say that to say this; we have got to move beyond Sunday School answers as we grow in our faith. Does this mean what a person learns in "Sunday School" is wrong. Not necessarily, no. But it does mean the truth can always be expounded upon...its implications must be allowed to make an impact on the lives of God's people. A case in point; what is the common ("Sunday School") answer for why God's people went into exile? More often than not, the answer is "idolatry." While there is truth to this...there is also more to it. While the title kind of gives it away...it is still worth a listen, reflection, and application.

Snapshots of God...

It seems the ways in which people talk about God is a MAJOR reason why there is so much disagreement about God. Examples of these "ways" range from flat-out distortions of God (e.g., statements or beliefs which are not found in Scripture) to focusing too much on a truth about God which is found in Scripture. So what is one to do? While there are several things that can be done, two with which we need to come to grips are the realities that 1) knowing God is a process - it NEVER ends, and 2) adopting a "snapshot" approach to viewing God can be very helpful. NOTE: toward the end of the sermon, during the lead in to the Lord's Supper, you will notice a shift in the sound of my voice. This is simply due to a technical difficulty which led to re-recording that aspect (or at least something close to what I said Sunday morning) later. In other words, what you will hear was said Sunday morning...just not exactly in that way (but close).

Commitment -

Commitment. While some people may shy away from it, the reality is everyone's commitment increases every day. Since this is true, it raises an important question that needs answered, "To what/whom am I committed?" Sometimes things simply need to be said.

Who is Born "King of the Jews?"

Being removed some 2,000 years from the actual events of what we lump together as "Christmas," we have lost so much. The miracle of the Incarnation shook the world...and it still shakes it today. In light of that, will we reject it, or submit to it? Larry serves as an elder at New Life Christian Church
