We THINK We Know What Sin Is, BUT…

So many people, Christians, and non-Christians alike have a misconception about what sin is. I was definitely one of those people myself until I committed to getting to know and understand God’s word (aka, the Bible).  Not to mention, there have been too many incorrect teachings and too many people mistreated because of a lack of understanding of sin, etc. So take a look at this video because it’s NOT what you think and we only know HALF of the truth…

How Do You Know If A Church Is The Right Church?

When I was growing up, the church was seen as a place of refuge by the majority. Unfortunately, it’s not like that today and there are several reasons that contribute to this, but broken trust is the main one.  I myself, stopped going to church on a consistent basis once I got to college but about 17 years later, once I began to desire a more intimate relationship with God, I started going back. However, I was very cautious about choosing the right church. In this video, I talk about that, as well as how you can recognize and find the right church for you.

(*I mentioned in this video that I would include notes/tips at the bottom on how to recognize the right church but I actually say it in the video 🙂 )

 

 

New Age Jesus vs. Christian Jesus

 

If you watched My Testimony, I mentioned that my journey back to a relationship with Jesus was a long, winding, twisted road but I didn’t explain why.  In this video, I explain how I had a very short experience with New Age Spirituality and how through that, I discovered that there are only two sides to this thing we call “Spirituality”: Good and Evil.  This whole movement, however, has found its way into even the Christian church through things that seem quite innocent at the surface.  They lead some to believe that we’re worshipping the same Jesus when in fact, we definitely are not.

Below are some links to testimonies of people who were deep into the New Age movement. They go more into the history and roots of it all and how they came to truly see it for what it is.

Steven Bancarz, a former New Age blogger turned Christian, explains how he discovered that New Age Spirituality at its roots, is a deception, leading people to believe that these practices lead to a closeness to God or a higher level of Christ-consciousness.  Here are two links to videos he’s done:

Why is the New Age Movement Dangerous

1 John 4: 1-3:

“Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world. Hereby know ye the Spirit of God: Every spirit that confesseth that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is of God: And every spirit that confesseth not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh is not of God”-New Age teaches the exact opposite: that Jesus is merely a prophet. If any teaching you follow teaches that Jesus is NOT the Son of God, it is a false spirit.
