The First Lie

This Sunday we kick off a 6-week sermon series called “Lies We Believe”. While the ways we can be deceived are many we will be focusing on six of them. Adam gets us started with a this topic: “My Feelings Are a Reliable Indicator of the Presence of God”…whether or not God is with us.   And it cuts both ways, sometimes convinced that God is far when He isn’t…and other times convinced that God is more with us than He is at other times.   All because of how we feel. Our Scripture text will be Psalm 74.

Pastor Brian brings the message in the Chapel at 11:00, we’ll consider “The Woman, the Child, and the Dragon”!  While that might sound like a book by C. S. Lewis, it is actually found in Revelation 12.  We will talk about how the Bible’s big picture of reality presents us with a varied spectrum of connected realities – like one great big “layer cake”.  And in our reality, we are living in one of those layers.  We’ll see from a story in Daniel 10 that what is happening in the other reality (the other layer) is influencing and impacting what happens in our reality.  And we’ll note that what happens here can also affect what is happening there.  This venture into territory in which we don’t often tread serves to remind us, on the authority of Scripture, about the spiritual battle in which we are engaged – whether we are aware of it or not!  It is therefore wiser for us to be aware!
