So yesterday at actionchurch felt like one of those uncomfortable conversations that families have occasionally. Sort of like when your Mom or Dad awkwardly try to talk about Drugs, Sex, or the danger of deep V-neck t-shirts on Guys…it’s uncomfortable…seems to last forever…but later you realize that it was probably as terribly awkward for them as it was for you, and only love would motivate a parent to have that conversation.
Yesterday was “the talk” about the pantheistic, pagan ideas in the Movie Avatar (and so much of our Society). It’s such a confusing and often uncomfortable “line” as Christians to determine how much of environmental concern is just being good managers of Gods Creation…and where it becomes a religious “worship of things created instead of the creator”
It was a Really tough talk to give…probably an even tougher talk to listen to. :-) I do hope that it causes all of us to evaluate the stuff that “everyone knows” and ask if it lines up with what God says about his plan for creation. Push Back. Question. Pray. Ask for wisdom. Do NOT become the people Paul described in Romans 1:21-22
21 Yes, they knew God, but they wouldn’t worship him as God or even give him thanks. And they began to think up foolish ideas of what God was like. As a result, their minds became dark and confused. 22 Claiming to be wise, they instead became utter fools.
Thanks to the Guys from Thru Me for rocking actionchurch Sunday!
If you missed the update Jerry gave what is happening with our venue search…stay tuned this week. Pray that God will continue to give us Favor, direction, and wisdom. I know that the announcements about the Wright Brothers Dealership have been like a roller coaster over the last few weeks. The reports have been good, bad, hopeful, hopeless, encouraging and sometimes very discouraging. Most of all they have been (and will continue to be) real. Please pray with us. Prepare yourself to act as we move to whatever venue God provides for us as a Church…do not miss this opportunity to be part of something that is unmistakably a move of God!
