gods at war Study Beginning in January

Join us for a great dive deeper into faith from 6-8 pm Wednesday evenings, January 25 through February 22.  Kyle Idleman will again take us on a journey where we’re compelled to think about our relationship with God.  Through video, discussion and study, we’ll talk about Christians and the church correctly emphasizing the need to identify and eradicate sin. But what if we’re actually missing the point? What if all sin has a common root? Is there a core issue that we failing to address?

In this new series, Idleman challenges our presumptions about sin by suggesting that all sin derives from the same source—idolatry. While we don’t see many “graven images” around today, Kyle argues that there are still countless gods passionately at war for the throne of our hearts. If we put the wrong god on the throne, our lives will be thrown into chaos, and all of the effort we put into fighting sin and overcoming it will be futile.

While there are many gods at war for our hearts, this study focuses on four in particular: the gods of love, money, pleasure, and power. Through stories told by the people who lived them, we’ll get the chance to see a bit of ourselves, and then recognize the true battle that lies at the heart of all of our sin struggles. These stories also point the way to victory, as we see the kind of life-transforming power that Christ is ready to pour out in our lives as well. As a result, seekers, non-Christians and life-long Christians alike will all be moved to grow their relationship with Christ.

On Wednesdays, we’ll enjoy supper together and then launch into the study.  Please join us—no matter how many sessions you can attend.
