“The word on the street is that faith is a potent mixture of intellectual and emotional self-control that when properly harnessed can literally change outcomes through positive thinking and clear visualization” (Larry Osborne, Ten Dumb Things Smart Christians Believe). What is faith? And, can it really fix anything? Pastor Andy looks at these questions from a biblical perspective as we continue the series, Lies Christians Swallow.
What does the Bible say about our physical bodies as it relates to Jesus’ return? Is heaven a place where our spirits are forever separated from our bodies? In this message, Ryan Horrisberger, one of our elders, examines 1 Corinthians 15:12-58 where we see that these are questions the early church has wrestled with. The Bible it turns out, is very clear on the subject, and the apostle Paul writes strongly to the believers in Corinth about how they should understand the resurrection of the dead.
Have you ever gotten something mostly right, but a little wrong? Sometimes being close just doesn’t cut it. It’s the same with who we say Jesus is. If we’re mostly right, but a little off, it can have negative consequences on our faith. Pastor Alex continues our series through the Gospel of Mark and challenges us to see the signs and recognize who Jesus is.
