“Problems with the Flabby Parts”
The church is a messy
movement with a laser focused message and a global mission.
~ Andy Stanley
Without the right keys many mysterious
remain locked to a new generation.
A world needs standards that universal
and timeless, without this kind of foundation the rich and wicked will rule
our world. Two keys give us the standard.
Jesus is our message and within Him are universal
standards to govern every society. They are Grace and Truth.
1st Key Truth- In a world where we need fact checkers and a culture
that believes you get ahead through lying this is a tough challenge.
In the last 10 years the definitions of Truth, Family,
Marriage, and Good Values have all changed.
If there is no absolute truth then there is no
absolute Being (God) and life is only what can be experienced in the here and
No absolute truth = No God, and mankind
gets to determine what is right
and wrong. We hold these truths to be self-evident… Our founders
believed in truth.
The church has been part of the problem
of flabby truth.
The 2nd Key Grace- When a world gives cheap grace for every standard the
consequences for breaking a standard is always changing.
Churches have been extra flabby when it
comes to Grace or they been anorexics.
