Counterfeit Gospels

  • There are many other gospels that masquerade as the true gospel.
  • These counterfeit gospel have an appearance of godliness, but are cheap imitations.
  • Unbeliever AND believers need the gospel.

Session #3

Why would you ever do that?

What motivates you?

  • They are all kinds of reasons to explain why people do the things they do.
  • If you polled 10 people and asked them why they brush their teeth, you may get 10 different answers.  Why do you brush your teeth?
  • Want white teeth.  Don’t want cavities.  Don’t want stinky breath.  Parents make me.  I want to be successful and success people have pretty smiles.  My girlfriend won’t kiss me otherwise.  I like making my dentist happy.  Everyone else does it.  I get $5 allowance if I brush everyday.  Devil made me do it.
  • Everyone has reasons or explanations or justifications for their actions.
    • Even the person who says they have no reason, has a reason, it’s just not a very good one.

    What is important to you?

    • Not everyone thinks the same things are important.
    • Some people put a high value on family—others don’t.
    • Some people value pets—others don’t.
    • Fashion is important to some people.
    • Eating healthy is important for some but not others.
  • Depending on what you believe is important, you’ll give time, energy, money to those things.

    Session #1

    9.11.11

    Why are we doing this?

    • Has it ever occurred to you that all this is kind of ridiculous?
    • Dave Ulrich is 57 years old, and for the past 19 years, he’s been spending his free time with junior highers.
    • Lauren Fisher is 25 years old, and on Sunday nights, she’s likes hanging out with high school girls.
    • Chris Jones is a cop, and he got Facebook so he could keep in touch with teenagers.
  • Is there something wrong with these people?
    • Typically, adults prefer not to spend time with teens.
    • I can tell you that all three of those people have lives outside of Sunday nights; they’re not here because they’re bored.
    • They have all kinds of things going on in their lives; jobs, families, friends, back-packing trips aroundEurope, searches for buried treasure, dates with the president.
    • Nothing is wrong with them.
  • So why do we do this?
    • Why do we get together every Sunday night?
    • Why do we organize weird games or watch YouTube videos?
    • Why do we have lessons like this or break up into small groups afterwards?
    • I’m going to tell you why:
  • We have an important message.
    • We create this environment, commit ourselves, makes sacrifices to be here, teach, have fun, eat SO THAT we can share one message with you.
