IT'S A SALVAGE OPERATION
Several years back I was on the interstate and my car just ceased operation. The red dashboard light that says "HOT" came on, I slowed down, coasted to an exit and lifted the hood to a cloud of smoke. Not a good sign. It was a short walk to a garage that towed my car in, and the problem turned out to be a belt that had come loose. They put the belt back on, did a few other tweaks, and before you know it, my car was salvaged: it was restored to the purpose for which it was intended, i.e., for driving.
That's what salvation is. It's a salvage operation. Through the blood of Jesus Christ, lives are restored to the purpose for which they were made. Some people think salvation is merely a supernatural insurance policy that reserves a place for them in heaven. But when we are saved, we begin to fulfill the purpose for which we were made, right here and now. My car was made to transport me…to get me somewhere. When it ceased to function, it had to be salvaged…saved. It's easy to become bogged down in theological terms like "salvation," and "sanctification" and "propitiation." But Jesus is in the salvaging business, plain and simple. New lives for old. It doesn't get any clearer—or better—than that, does it?
THERE IS SALVATION IN NO ONE ELSE; FOR THERE IS NO OTHER NAME UNDER HEAVEN THAT HAS BEEN GIVEN…BY WHICH WE MUST BE SAVED. ACTS 4:12

“What happened to America?” How did the moral compass of our nation began to drift? It was when the American people began to believe some lies. If we hear a lie often enough and regularly enough from so many different arenas; we begin to believe it. That’s why Dr. Ed Young has taken the major step of preaching a candid 3-message series that lays bare the lies that American society… and even American believers… have come to accept as truth. Lies about morality, the role of the church, the role of government, the sanctity of life, and more.
As Dr. Young shows in this series, there are steps every believer can take to reestablish God’s truth in their home and community—steps we must take to rebuild a moral foundation upon which our nation can stand and flourish!
Contains 3 messages:Can morality be legislated? Is a fetus a baby? Should the church have a say in government?
