May Sermon Series: Say What!?
Christianity makes some bold claims. Not everyone agrees. So, how can we say what we say and believe what we believe? Is there a rational foundation that makes it reasonable to believe or do we just check our brains at the door? And if it is reasonable to believe, what is our relationship with those who draw a different conclusion? For the next few weeks we will seek to give answers to some really basic questions.
Pastor Ben McEachern
April 27-28 Is it reasonable to believe God exists?
The Bible doesn’t really ever set out to prove God exists. It just assumes he does and that he is speaking to us. Is it reasonable to believe that? Today we test that notion.
May 4-5 Is it reasonable to believe the Bible is reliable?
2 Timothy 3:16-17
We Christians put a lot of weight on our Bible. It forms our understanding of God and informs how we live. Does it deserve that trust? Today we test the reliability of the Bible.
May 11-12 Is it reasonable to Follow Jesus?
So, if God exists and the Bible is reliable, what will we do with Jesus? Are his claims valid? First, let’s be clear on what he has claimed about himself. Then we can weigh whether or not it’s reasonable to fully follow him.
May 18-19 Is it reasonable to believe God is good when there is so much evil in the world?
A Rabbi once said, “The believer in God must explain one thing, the existence of suffering. The non-believer must explain the existence of everything else.” So today, let’s talk about suffering.
May 25-26 Is it reasonable love those we believe are wrong?
1 Peter 3:15-16; 4:14-16
Wow, it’s a divided world out there. Mistrust, anger and hatred abound. Those who disagree are automatically considered stupid, hateful and even dangerous. But is it possible to disagree without becoming enemies? Is there a place for Love? For the Christian, we are nothing without it. Today, we learn how to do it.
