This week's bulletin is online here. In Matthew 23:13-15 Jesus condemns the scribes and Pharisees for sealing people in their unbelief with their false religion. This is the danger of false religion: it "incoluates" a person to the gospel by giving them enough truth to "feel accepted" by God without actually leading them to genuine repentance and faith. We live in highly religious area that is flooded with just these types of false gospels. What are they, why are they appealing, and what are their flaws? We'll explore the answer to this question as Ryan continues to discuss the implications of Matthew 23:13-15 in a series of messages entitled "The Gospel Vaccine."
In Sunday school we will continue to discuss chapter two of James Sire's The Universe Next Door.
Please remember that we will celebrate the Lord's Table together at the conclusion of our service. Please take a moment before church to reflect on your life in Christ and repent of any known sin before coming to worship on Sunday so that you might be able to take the Table in a worthy manner (cf. 1 Cor. 11:27-32).
The men's breakfast is scheduled for this upcoming Saturday, October 8 from 8:00-9:30 AM. The men will be discussing chapter two of Robert Coleman's The Master Plan of Evangelism. We still have two copies of the book available to purchase ($10) for anyone who would like one.
