Unforgiving: Part 4 Why Does a Person Forgive? Philemon 19-25
Sunday, December 4, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

This Sunday we conclude our sermon series through the New Testament Book of Philemon called, Unforgiving. Christian intellectual C.S. Lewis once said, “We all agree that forgiveness is a beautiful idea until we have to practice it.” In other words, it’s easier said than done. Forgiving can be hard to do. What drives us to forgive? In this sermon we will talk about motivations for forgiveness.

Jesus for President: Part 4 Is America a Christian Nation? John 8:31-32
Sunday, October 9, 2016 :: Brian Lightsey

The late Jerry Falwell once said, “I believe America has reached the pinnacle of greatness unlike any nation in human history because our Founding Fathers established America’s laws and precepts on the principles recorded in the laws of God including the Ten Commandments. God blessed this nation because in its early days she sought to honor God and the Bible, the inerrant Word of the living God.” 

Is this true? Were we founded as a Christian nation?

This Sunday, we continue our sermon series, Jesus for President and talk about whether America is---or ever was---a Christian nation.
