Are You Prepared for Battle?

Make no mistake: If you are a serious, committed Christian, you are in a war! The eternal souls of millions is at stake and this battle allows for no neutral parties or oblivious bystanders. You are either actively engaged in this spiritual effort or you give aid and comfort to the enemy by standing on the side in silence and not intervening.

The weapons of our warfare are not those of the world. Yet the weapons we wield are powerful to overcome the darkness and lead people to the light of Jesus Christ. But weapons can be ineffective or even useless unless we are well equipped, trained to handle them skillfully.

Carl shares the importance of critical thinking, reason, and using logic along with the truth of Scripture to back up the evidence for God and creation. Too many people today will argue against God and the Bible having very little to back up their claims and worldview. It is important that we know how to respond to them and point them to Christ.

The Narrow Path and Gate

The way is broad that leads to destruction, and there are many who enter through it. – Jesus in Matthew 7

The life of a believer should be markedly different from people of the world. We are called to higher standard of morality, and we are called to be above reproach with not even a hint of immorality that could lead others to stumble into sin. Not an easy assignment, but one we are called to by our savior.

Dave Wager joins us this morning to discuss the narrow path, the narrow gate, and the narrow life of a true believer.
