May 18, 2023

How much media and entertainment should we let into our homes? We might try to deny our overconsumption or be unsure of what to do. In this message, we follow three tests for the media we allow into our hearts. We must be intentional, or entertainment will become detrimental to our spiritual growth.

When You’ve Been Wronged
Conflict in relationships is inevitable, but healing and reconciliation often is not. Time and again we've tried every option and failed, and all we are left with is a load of guilt and pain. Pastor Erwin Lutzer shows how the blessing the Lord gives to those who suffer unjustly is worth the pain involved. He also illustrates the need to leave our broken relationships in the hands of God and move forward in our lives toward freedom.

Where is the power of God most evident? Those with discernment know that the power of the Gospel far outweighs the power seen in miracles, signs, and wonders.

Miracles seem to happen often, and almost everybody wants one. Yet is it possible that these so-called miracles could really be a form of demonic deception?

Modern-day false prophets promise blessings without repentance, and prosperity for all who send a gift. Beware of false prophets, who are outwardly like lambs but inwardly they are wolves.

In the marketplace of religious ideas, packaging and marketing often carry more weight than biblical truth. Sadly, sound doctrine is in short supply.

People who attempt to stay in the realm of neutrality oftentimes have the strongest opinions and judgments.

Many Christians choose the same movies, music, or versions of “the good life” as the world does. How can we be a distinct witness in a time when everyone has their own intuitions and perceptions?

Everyone acts and believes as they please, with hedonism and mysticism thriving. More than ever, the church must love our neighbors and be united.
