Scripture Twisting
2 Peter 3:14 -18
 
Adding head knowledge carries the risk of legalism. Legalism is basically adding my own rules to God’s rules. My rules and my ideas are fine for me but I cannot bind them on others or expect others to feel compelled to follow them. Coming to scripture with my agenda can have dangerous consequences. Faithful disciples Examine the Scriptures Daily.

    Treasures in Heaven
    Luke 12:16-21; Luke 18:27-29
     
    Sometimes I think we get the wrong answers because we're asking the wrong questions. Churches spend a lot of time with how people live life. While that's valuable to discuss, it's probably not nearly as valuable as asking why. All of us have the privilege to live life, but few of us will take the time to ask why?

    Always Let Your Conscience Be Your Guide
    Mark 2:23-28
     
    The statement above is wisdom given to the world by Carlo Collodi in the 1880’s. He wrote The Adventures of Pinocchio, the story of a wooden puppet who becomes a real boy. The struggles of life often call for great wisdom and courage. The conscience can be a good guide, if the conscience is morally trained by the knowledge of God…head knowledge and heart knowledge.

    Blameless in Christ
    Colossians 1:15-23
     
    It's seductive to believe that I am a self-made man. I've pulled myself up from my boot straps. It's an American value: We are resilient. We are accomplished. And we have a tendency to believe we did it all ourselves. Unfortunately, we sometimes bring these values into our spiritual life. Scripture is clear: our righteousness is not our doing. It is the work of Christ. To claim otherwise is to commit fraud.

    You Need to Know More Than the Enemy
    Proverbs 1:1-7
     
    Someone once said ours is a battle of the heart and mind. This is a true statement, especially concerning the battle of the mind. Knowledge is Spiritual Power. You will seek out what your heart loves. For those who love God, we seek knowledge from the Scripture which communicates to us the Mind of God.

    Guilty
    Romans 1-6
     
    This one point is driven home: we are guilty. Often, we think that the message of Jesus is good. And it is! But it has a context. It's good news only when we understand and believe our guilt. In fact, the gospel actually starts out as really bad news before it turns good. Tonight, we will explore the unpopular idea that we are guilty.

    The Finding of the Book
    Luke 10:21-24
     
    In 2 Peter 1:5-7, Peter encourages a type of faith that is constantly growing and changing. Once we come to faith, however difficult that process may be, we have only just begun. God puts within us the desire to do good with our lives, but good has to be directed by knowledge that comes from above.

    In Him We Live and Move and Exist
    1 Samuel 20
     
    What happens when things appear to be getting out of hand and out of your control? Sometimes we become desperate and do things in a frantic way. Other times we turn to our faith and make a commitment to do things differently, hopefully bringing about some sort of change. A third option is what we see in Jonathan, son of King Saul. His actions are of a person who knows that in all things, God is in control.
