#NOTFAKENEWS Part 5 - You Are Truly Indispensable

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 5 - You Are Truly Indispensable

September 17, 2017 - Pastor Barry Clair - #NOTFAKENEWS Part 5 - You Are Truly Indispensable
Today I conclude the series #NOTFAKENEWS. I want to conclude today by showing you one last way that FAKE NEWS has deceived us and caused us to live way below God's standard and purpose for our lives.
As I've said throughout this series, FAKE NEWS is not a phenomenon of the 2016 Presidential election campaign, FAKE NEWS has been going on WAY back, even in biblical days.
I want to conclude today by talking about FAKE NEWS that we tell ourselves. And let's face it, we tell ourselves a lot of FAKE NEWS! What we blab to ourselves, we believe about ourselves. And what we believe about ourselves, we eventually become. When it comes to the dangers of FAKE NEWS, we are usually our own worst enemy. That's what I want to talk about today.

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 4 - His Coming Is True

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 4 - His Coming Is True

September 10, 2017 - Pastor Barry Clair - #NOTFAKENEWS Pt.4 - His Coming Is True
I'm in the middle of a series of messages called #NOTFAKENEWS.  We've been looking at the fact that the Gospel is not bad news, it's not fake news; it's still the Good News.
Today, we turn our focus again at the Scripture to see yet another example of how FAKE NEWS can warp our understanding of God and His purposes in the world.

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 3 - Stories from Victims

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 3 - Stories from Victims

September 3, 2017 - Pastor Barry Clair - #NOTFAKENEWS Pt.3 - Stories from Victims
It's a holiday weekend, and since holidays offer a break from "business as usual" I want to look at this topic a little bit differently than I have in this series.  So, let me begin by asking you a question, "Have you ever been the victim of FAKE NEWS?"  Think about it.
I think most of us in this room have been.  Has someone ever said or spread a lie or half-truth about you?  Has someone taken something you said or did the wrong way and assigned or assumed a wrong thing about you?
Have you been judged and condemned for something you didn't do or say?  If so, you have been the victim of FAKE NEWS.

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 2 -

#NOTFAKENEWS Part 2 - "Who Do People Say I Am?"

August 27, 2017 - Pastor Barry Clair - #NOTFAKENEWS Pt.2 "Who Do People Say I Am?"
I want to begin the series today by asking a question. This question is the basis of the whole message today. "What do you believe about Jesus?" Another way to put the question is, "What do you know for SURE about Jesus?" This naturally leads to a follow-up question, "How reliable, how authentic are the sources of your information about Jesus?"
Have you established your faith in Jesus on the Fake News of our culture; the skeptical and agnostic intelligentsia pseudo-scientific rationale? Or on the Good News of the Gospel as found in the Holy Scriptures?
That's my Socratic Thesis statement for today.
