Is It Time to Take a Hard Look at Ourselves?

Confusion, bewilderment, even anger are words that describe many Christians today. So much has changed in recent years to rock our way of looking at the world. While the 1960s was the actual beginning of the changes we see taking place today, no one at that time would have ever imagined the social movements we see today gaining ever increasing popularity. What people took for granted concerning gender, sexuality, marriage, and family have been set aside for radically different visions of how life ought to be. 

We Christians, however, must ask ourselves the hard question, “Why have things changed so drastically when the Christian concepts of gender, sexuality, marriage, and family were held by the vast majority of Americans since the founding of our country?” Could it be that some or even many of us have not been convincing examples that God’s way is best? Have we deviated from his ideal, even crossing over into the thinking that we can define our own rules in these matters?

If Christians are going to be a part of God changing peoples’ hearts and minds, our hearts and minds must be totally committed to him and his principles for living. There are few issues today which are as controversial as sexuality, marriage, and family. There are few issues more important than these. As God’s representatives in this world, we need to be equipped and committed to not only presenting what he teaches on these subjects, but to living out those principles. Join us for one of our weekend services. Be a part of the change! 

Weekend worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm – Sunday: 10:00 am
