    Q&A – Is It A Sin to Drink Alcohol?
    Question and Answer
     
    Tonight we will tackle two questions at once, asked by different people: Christians who drink say that it is ok because Jesus did, and he even created wine (John 2:1-11). So is drinking ok? What was the alcohol content? I’ve done some study on this and it is really confusing. Plus, commentaries seem to differ from each other. I am not really sure this is a qualifying question for the sermon series. Here it goes. Why is drinking a beer or alcoholic drink considered a sin among church members. I can't find a biblical reason why this is a line of thought in the church.

    Binding Isaac
    Genesis 22:7-13
     
    Abraham offered up his son Isaac and I can hardly wrap my head around it. Now that I have a son, an only son, whom I love. There's a lot more to this story than we catch because we often recoil when we read instead of drinking deeply from the text. As we dig into this story, it will take us to the foot of the cross. May your Memorial Day weekend dwell on the most profound sacrifice ever offered.

    Q&A – Consider Job
    1 Corinthians 10:13
     
    Question and Answer: As an effort to be attentive to our time on Sunday evening, and also do justice to this *very* important question, we will only tackle this one question this evening: 1 Corinthians 10:13 is often used to illustrate that ‘God will not give us more than we can handle.’ But it doesn’t say that. It only addressed our temptation to sin. Will God allow us to encounter circumstances greater than we can bear? (Consider Job). If that’s true, what are we supposed to do, just have hope when we’re crushed in spirit?

    Seven Easy Steps to Great Communication
    Psalm 19
     
    God is the master communicator. He has communicated His will and His love using the creation, the written Word and even His own Son. What makes his communication quality is the belief system that drives it. When we struggle with communication, it is usually not because of technique, but because of what we believe.

    Q&A – Jeremiah & Joshua
    Question and Answer
     
    The two questions we will take time to explore tonight are:
     
    1. Is Jeremiah 29:11 only contextual or can it be singled out to be used as our culture uses it - such as for graduation celebrations and as an encouragement verse? Also, I’ve noticed a difference in some versions. One used the word “prosper” and another “plans for welfare”. Very different ideas.
     
    2. A question about Joshua. He led the people all through these different cities and burned and killed everyone and everything in them basically. And I want to ask why is it okay to kill off all of those people and by God's instruction even?" These are great questions - and very timely, since our kids just finished studying Joshua for LTC!
