The message is titled. “The Place That’s the Best.” We focused on how the Christian belief in salvation through Jesus Christ alone is systematically being dismantled in America and the world. The Bible teaches in Acts 4;12 that Jesus is the Messiah and salvation is exclusively through Him, “Salvation is found in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given to men by which we must be saved.”
For many today this is an offensive statement and hate speech because it doesn’t treat other religions and messiah figures with respect.
How can believers in Jesus Christ reach a world that screams in protest at the basic teachings of scripture? We ask the question, who is the spirit in the sky?
The message was titled, Old Man Take a Look at My Life. John the Baptist preached a message calling the children back to the fathers, and the fathers back to the children. There was a gap or division in the first century, much as there is today. A gap between young and old – rich and poor – Gentile and Jew – men and women. John preached Jesus as the gap closer, and He still is.
Today we are as divided as ever, conflicts and divisions abound. When John preached in the 1st century, his mission was to prepare the way for Christ. So, we see that part of getting ready for the return of Christ is to not only have a right heart with God but also be in right relationship with people.
There is a little secret tucked away in an old Neil Young song called Old Man - I can't wait to share it with you. This message will be an insightful look into our interpersonal relationships giving us one simple truth that will help close the gap and heal division and conflict and help us to see people we disagree with in a different light.
