 Today's Message: 

I Want To Believe, But I don’t like Christians
by Scott ancarrow

"The greatest single cause of atheism in the world today is Christians who acknowledge Jesus with their lips and walk out the door and deny Him by their lifestyle. That is what an unbelieving world simply finds unbelievable." Brennan Manning. 

“Jesus is ideal and wonderful, but you Christians, you are not like him.” - Bara Dada

"I want to believe, but I don't like Christians." 

Luke 18:35-43

Do my actions point people to or from the way of Christ? (Jesus' follwers) 

Luke 18:39

Do I persistently and confidently call out to Jesus?  (The Blind Man) 

Luke 18:39-41

"Consider His words. Consider His life. Over and above the clanging cymbals, the daunting hypocrisy, Jesus' life remains clear and available for all who earnestly seek Him. Jesus is, as Willard wrote, the brightest spot in the human scene” -Michael Wear

Do I celebrate what God celebrates? (the Crowd) 

Luke 18:43

"Those who assume the mantle of speaking for Jesus often distract others from the way of Jesus."
