People say things that catch on, even if what they said isn’t true. These are what are called Urban Legends – untruths which are believed by many simply because they haven’t taken the time to check them out.
Christianity has been a frequent target of the Urban Legend movement with stunning success. Caught up in an overload of information which often makes meaningful study obsolete, individuals rely on 30-word tweets and 30 second videos to determine the important truths which govern their lives. Two urban legends regarding Christianity which have taken hold are: faith does not have any fact to support it and most people are Christians because they are afraid of a vicious, vengeful God. Both propositions could not be farther from the truth, however, it does take some serious thought and a little time to understand why.
If you have the uncomfortable feeling that casually dismissing the claims of Christ as an outdated psychological crutch for past generations isn’t a wise decision, join us for one of our worship services this week. You’ll find that going beyond emotional impressions and digging deep for what is actually true is not only refreshing, but also life changing.
Worship service times: Saturday: 6:00 pm, Sunday: 9:00 am & 10:30 am.
