SUNDAY SNAPSHOT (TWISTED - 3)

main image

The most Dangerous Lies are the ones we Never Notice! Common but Deadly Deceptions are impacting our lives every day! They can “TWIST” our thinking in ways we’d never expect and leave us with a life we’ve never imagined! Our ability to recognize them can spell the difference between Happiness and/or the Loss of ALL we hold dear! So the Greater Question is… DO YOU SEE THEM? Do whatever you can to join us at COC the remaining TWO WEEKS as we continue taking a closer look in our Current Series at how God’s Truth often gets… TWISTED!

 

 

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk3) FACING FORWARD

 

The TWIST known as PAIN and SUFFERING!

 

"God WHISPERS to us in our PLEASURES... SPEAKS in our CONSCIENCE… but SHOUTS in our PAINS! It’s His Megaphone to rouse a Deaf World!" (CS Lewis)

 

The THREE BIG DOTS to making sense of PAIN and SUFFERING...

1) In The Beginning…

2) In The Meantime…

3) In The End…

 

IN THE BEGINNING… Sin Entered The World!

IN THE MEANTIME… God’s Right There With You and Still In Control!

IN THE END… He Knows We Win! (We ALL Win!)

 

 

See You Sunday Celebrators… (Unified Service - 9A)

Sunday Snapshot… (Wk2) SAYS WHO?

 

We ALL tend to evaluate AUTHORITYRULE BY RULE… and if we DON’T AGREE with it we just DISREGARD it! (Here's the TWIST...) If we DISAGREE with the “WHAT” then we're going to DISREGARD it altogether!

 

The TWIST says that when it comes to AUTHORITY and RULES… it’s all about “WHAT?” (But God Says...) "It's NOT about the WHAT... it's about the WHO!"

 

Romans 13:1… Everyone must Submit Himself to the Governing Authorities… for there is no AUTHORITY except that which God has established. The Authorities that exist have been established by God.

 

GOD ALWAYS WORKS THROUGH HUMAN AUTHORITY. (Period.)

 

Your ATTITUDE and RESPONSE toward your HUMAN AUTHORITIES… is a REFLECTION of your ATTITUDE and RESPONSE toward your FATHER in HEAVEN!

 

Romans 13:5… Therefore, it is necessary to SUBMIT to the AUTHORITIES not only because of possible punishment BUT also because of CONSCIENCE! (In other words… IT'S JUST THE RIGHT THING TO DO!)

 

It’s NOT about the WHAT… it’s about the WHO!
