“Don’t be naive. There are difficult times ahead. As the end approaches, people are going to be self-absorbed, money-hungry, self-promoting, stuck-up, profane, contemptuous of parents, crude, coarse, dog-eat-dog, unbending, slanderers, impulsively wild, savage, cynical, treacherous, ruthless, bloated windbags, addicted to lust, and allergic to God. They’ll make a show of religion, but behind the scenes they’re animals. Stay clear of these people… They get exploited every time and never really learn… But nothing will come of these latest impostors. Everyone will see through them…” – from II Timothy 3:1-9 The Message
One of Jimmy Buffet’s most unusual song titles is, “My Head Hurts, My Feet Stink, and I Really Don’t Love Jesus.” While some of us may be offended by the brutal honesty of such a statement, there are many in our world and in our community who have headaches and heartaches that cannot be healed by superficial religion.
This Sunday morning, with this unusual song title and II Timothy 3:1-9 in mind, we will focus on ways to minister to those who are burned out on church and fed up with religious clichés and slogans, yet they are still searching for that which is of authentic spiritual significance.
On Sunday evening, we will continue our series, “Just Walk Across the Room” as we examine relevant and simple ways to converse with friends and strangers who need to see, hear, taste, touch, and feel the goodness and grace of the Christ.
Invite a friend to join you as we gather for worship and Bible study.
