"Intimacy with God Through Prayer" (HS) - 06.27.18

High School Message
Once you have a real relationship with God where you know Him and you're known by Him... you need to TALK and LISTEN!  It's the best way to get close to Him like a [good] Daddy!  The Lord's prayer is an example of how to pray more than a script of what to pray.  Talk to Him - be open and honest with Him.  Trust Him.  He will respond!

"Intimacy with God" (HS) - 06.13.18

High School Message
God doesn't desire distant conformity but intimate relationship that leads to obedience and becoming like Him.  Many have a relationship with God that is more like a vending machine or an unwanted lover.  It' important to evaluate how close we really are to God and whether or not we're truly in a loving relationship with Him at all.  Then we can figure out how to knowHim better and love Him more.

"Set Your Mind Above" - 05.16.18

Middle & High School Message
Setting your mind on the things of heaven - on God's reality - and letting go of what one has previously considered "normal" is a lot like learning that the Matrix isn't real and how to live like it's a lie and a trap.  We must see this place for what is it and focus on God's eternal reality instead.

As we continue evaluating the Bible's trustworthiness we examined its textual accuracy with the same scholarly standards applied to other trusted works of antiquity.  While it passes with flying colors. this evidence by itself may not seem to prove it's the the Bible to be the reliable word of God, but as the evidence continues to mount, so can confidence.

"Beyond Reasonable Doubt" part 11 (HS) - 02.21.18

High School Message
As we begin to evaluate the Bible's trustworthiness we start with recognizing its uniqueness from all other literature - especially ancient literature.  It is a startlingly unique book which, by itself, doesn't prove it's the reliable word of God, but this is just the first look at evidence in a cumulative case.
