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!
