enigma - Message 5 - I Never Knew You

enigma - Message 5 - I Never Knew You


August 26, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues in the seres called "Enigma" with the message "I Never Knew You"

In anticipation of this seris, enigma, Pastor Kendra sent me a cartoon and suggested that the subject of it would make a great sermon for this series.  It shows a Christian seated at a coffee table on the left quoting Acts 2:21, "Whoever calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved."  Seated across from him is an Atheist who is also quoting a Bible passage, Matthew 7:21, "Not everyone who calls on the name of the Lord shall be saved", which is part of our text today.

There appears to be a fundamental contradiction here.  The question becomes, which is it?  If you call on the Lord, are you saved?  Or not?  Spoiler Alert: It's all in the CONTEXT.

Can you call yourself a Christ-follower and not be one?  This is an enigma!

We continue today, the second part of a sermon I began last week in the series called enigma.  We are looking at some of the great mysteries of Scripture.  There are both explicit and implicit enigmatic topics and passages in the Bible.  We are attempting to solve these puzzles or at least unravel them a bit to get our spiritual arms around them.

enigma - Message 3 - Christ In You

enigma - Message 3 - Christ In You


August 12, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair continues in the seres called "Enigma" with the message "Christ In You"

In this series, we are examining at passages of Scripture that are baffling, perplexing, and somewhat puzzling.  We're studying sections of the Bible where the authors talk explicitly about a mystery, or something intentionally concealed and kept from understanding.

Today, I'm going to turn to another passage in Colossians chapter 1 where Paul talks about a mystery, something that he says has been kept hidden for ages and generations.

August 8, 2018 - Senior Pastor Barry Clair is in the seres called "Enigma" with the message "The Mirror Marriage Mystery"

According to the dictionary, an enigma is something that is mysterious, puzzling, or difficult to understand.

There are many passages in the Bible that fit that definition.  I call them the enigmatic statements of Scripture.  Over the next several weeks, we're going to take a look at some of these verses, some of these passages that are hard to explain, hard to understand, and we are 'puzzling' over them.  Today, I want to talk about something that most Christians never consider enigmatic.
