All of Us Have Been Told Lies

We have all been lied to at one time or another. Lies shake us and leave us suspicious of others. The real damage is the loss of trust. This week I have read several news stories that governments have paid news organizations in the US and Europe to promote or hide a story. That strikes at the holy grail of our free press.

No one lies to us more than the Devil. Seems he is constantly whispering lies into our minds. Starting Sunday, April 10, we will explore 5 lies the Devil uses against us.

Someone said there are no stupid questions only unasked questions. Why is that people fear to ask questions? They are afraid others will look down on them for the question. Questions unlock doors to a process that is equally invigorating as the answer. Our search for answers is encouraged once we learn others have similar questions.

A search for answers leads eventually to a trusted friend. That person will not embarrass us or belittle us for our questions. In my lifetime I have achieved several undergrad degrees, been to seminars, read books and heard speakers. A friend that will sincerely answer my questions is far better. I have learned far more from these friends.

It is assumed that God has all the answers but did you know that Jesus asked questions too, lots of them. According to one author, Martin B. Copenhaven, Jesus asked 307 questions. The next time you read something in the Bible look for the questions.
Here are our questions:
March 29 Can a Loving God Send People to Hell?
April 5 Why Jesus?
April 12 Why Is Religion Responsible for so much Hate?
April 19 Why Should I Believe in God?
April 26 Science Has Disproved the Bible?

Post your questions and let’s get started.

What is Christmas all about? It was a rescue mission. Rescue missions are risky, full of surprise, met by opposition and done in secret. This more accurately describes the birth of Jesus (Savior) than parts of some Christmas celebrations. God sent a Savior to the world. Do you need rescuing? Then Jesus came for you. That is what Christmas is all about. The Bible is full of God’s rescue stories. There is one that fits you and will give you hope.

Revelation Study: Jesus Out in the Open

Revelation is about end times and apocalypse. Questions about the future collide with the desire to know the unknown. Yet, the message of the book is in another direction. Jesus Christ is the central figure and his worship abounds throughout the story.

A dear friend has loaned Journey this picture. The painting is the work of David Huyard, Harrisonburg, Virginia, completed in six working days and inspired by Revelation 19. This five foot by nine foot painting hangs in the worship center of Journey Christian Fellowship.
