August 24, 2021

One group says the Bible is a book about love, mercy, and kindness. They think of the story of the Good Samaritan and of Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. So how could anyone think the Bible prevents a tolerant society? But for another group, the Bible is far from tolerant. There’s the conquest of Canaan. There’s Elijah killing Baal’s prophets by his own hand. And in the New Testament, Jesus talks often about hell. That’s not tolerant. What then can we say in answer to this question?

Jesus explains that sacrifice for His sake is good because this is right at the heart of his core purpose. Biblical faith must require sacrifice. It costs something to be a real follower of Jesus and put Him first.

We live in an information age with a world of data at our fingertips. We may even think—why do I even need to go to college? You go to college to learn to think. Here we study Daniel who was a young man of learning and promise when he was taken off to be taught in Babylon.

We started this message with the story of the blind man being partially healed. His return to full sight is a metaphor of the real spiritual healing that comes through faith in Christ and the cross, and also by picking up that cross ourselves.

Here we answer the question "Can I know God personally?" Through the story of the healing of the blind man, we are are linking sight to knowing God. What does this miracle have for us today?

As we look at part two of the question "Is the Bible reliable?" we look at secular fake news about the Bible. We need to clear away the confusion and get to our goal of celebrating the Bible's reliability.

What God is saying here is that He desires this mercy, love, and faithfulness in us, and not sacrifice. What this means is that He doesn't want religious ritual. Today we tend to focus on our morality over grace. In reality, it is Christ who saves us and then empowers us to obedience.

There is a lot of religious fake news out there about the Bible. Today we ask "Is the Bible reliable?" We need to have a faith in the Bible that is credible.

Today we look at the question "Is Jesus really God?" Our story reflects a real life mess that the disciples got themselves into. When we feel like we're battling a headwind in life, we need to hear this good news in the person of Jesus.
