Over the past twenty years, our culture has come to embrace the perspective that all beliefs are valid. The reigning social paradigm is, “People should be able to do whatever they want as long as they are not hurting someone else.” This new ethic was perfectly captured in a student mural that was recently painted on the FSU campus, “Live your own values.”
In our upcoming sermon series, “Jesus Versus,” we are going to pit Jesus’ words up against some of the most influential ideologies and powerful positions of our day. We are going to carefully examine the most influential religious beliefs, sexual ideologies, political positions, and cultural idols, in light of the words of Christ. We are going to talk openly and honestly about some of the issues that are not often discussed by the church, let alone in the church.
In John 14:6, Jesus proclaimed to the crowds, “I am the the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father (God) but through me.” According to Jesus, what we believe and what we give our lives too not only effects who we are today, but it will impact our lives for eternity.
Do all roads lead to heaven? According to Jesus, all roads lead to him. Does love know no wrong? According to Jesus, truth and love go hand and hand.
Join us this Sunday for a controversial, engaging, and challenging look at “Jesus Versus.”
