Well… In this New Series here at Church of Celebration… we’ll examine WHY we can BELIEVE the BIBLE without a shadow of doubt… and WHAT these Other Religions really teach… and most importantly HOW to TALK TO PEOPLE of OTHER FAITHS with CONFIDENCE in THE GOSPEL!

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk5) NEW AGE SPIRITUALISM

The Theme of Galatians... JESUS PLUS NOTHING! (That’s also THE GOSPEL!)

 

-RELIGION says that Salvation is based on what I DO or DON'T DO!

-THE GOSPEL says that Salvation is based on what JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE!

 

NEW AGE SPIRITUALISM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT FOUNDATION!

-The Gospel is all about JESUS!

-New Age Spiritualism is the RELIGION of ME!

 

NEW AGE SPIRITUALISM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT THEOLOGY!

-The Gospel is all about the FACT that JESUS “IS” GOD!

-New Age Spiritualism is all about what YOU WANT or YOU HOPE FOR IT TO BE!

 

NEW AGE SPIRITUALISM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT GOSPEL!

-The Gospel is all about the GOOD NEWS of what JESUS DID on the CROSS for YOU!

-New Age Spiritualism is all about YOU - and that's not any big NEWS at all!

 

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (9A / 10:45A)

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk4) ISLAM

The Theme of Galatians... JESUS PLUS NOTHING! (That’s also THE GOSPEL!)

 

-RELIGION says that Salvation is based on what I DO or DON'T DO!

-THE GOSPEL says that Salvation is based on what JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE!

 

ISLAM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT FOUNDATIONS!

-The Quran vs. The Bible

-We believe The Bible is the "INSPIRED" WORD OF GOD! (2 Timothy 3:16)

 

ISLAM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT THEOLOGY!

-One is FEAR-DRIVEN and the other is LOVE-DRIVEN!

-One leads to SLAVERY and the other leads to FREEDOM!

 

ISLAM vs. THE GOSPEL… DIFFERENT GOSPEL!

-One is totally based on YOUR WORKS (Then HOPE for the best…) and the other is totally/completely based on the WORK that JESUS HAS ALREADY DONE! (Ephesians 2:8-9)

 

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!

JESUS PLUS NOTHING… FAITH IN CHRIST ALONE!
