Half Truths Worship Series

True or false:

  1. Everything happens for a reason.
  2. God helps those who help themselves.
  3. God won't give you more than you can handle.
  4. God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
  5. Love the sinner, hate the sin.

All true? Not so fast.

They are simple phrases. They sound Christian—like something you might find in the Bible. We’ve all heard these words. Maybe we’ve said them. They capture some element of truth, yet they miss the point in important ways.

Join us along with Adam Hamilton in searching for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés to the message and ministry of Jesus.

Beginning Sunday, January 17, 2021, we will look at these commonly used expressions and explore what may be a more Biblically-inspired substitute for each.

You can also join us for our video Bible study every week beginning January 19. We will meet by Zoom on Tuesdays at 7 pm and Wednesdays at 9:30 am.
