Taking Offense

This week's message is Taking Offense. Choose your connection speed to listen: dialup - broadband - transcript

Feel-Good vs. Love

The Bible tells us that God corrects those he loves, just as a father corrects the child in whom he delights. But all too often in the Church today, we are so careful to not offend anyone or hurt anyone's feelings, that we skip calling sin "sin" and keep silent about the more "offensive" parts of Scripture.

Today we talk about the issue of taking offense, and ponder not only what should offend us and what should not, but also whether protecting others' feelings by withholding the truth about sin is really love, or just the enemy's hatred in disguise.

Prayer Requests & Praise Reports

Healing from Lukemia – Ben writes, Please pray for Josh and Michelle, who have made this request: "Our lives were turned upside down yesterday after taking our precious little angel Garrett to the doctor for what we thought was a little infection in his finger and because we thought maybe he had a virus. The doctors told us they wanted to check his blood. I mentioned to them that although he had no other signs, I'd like for them to check him for anemia since he seems to bruise easily. The doctors came back to give us the diagnosis and immediately took Garrett from the room. They informed us that Garrett was very highly anemic and that our sweet sweet baby appeared to have leukemia. All of his counts were very low so they called for a CBC to be taken to the hospital and we'd have the results in an hour. The diagnosis is Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia (ALL)."

Finding a Godly Wife – Lucky writes, kindly pray for me to find a true Christian wife. I have been devorced from my wife for almost six years now (before I gave my life to Christ). I truly need a loving woman. I have prayed and fasted about it and trust that God sent me to this site for a special blessing. I am 52 years old

Pray For Us! Please pray that God will continue to move through this ministry in an even greater measure. Without your prayers, our labor will not have much effect. But when the work of the ministry is backed by prayer, great things will happen!

Visit our prayer center to post requests or pray for those who daily request prayer. If you wish to be a prayer partner and have the requests e-mailed to you, contact us.
