Key Takeaways

“They are trying to distract us from the unity we have in Christ.”

“The best way to deal with the feeling of doubt that sparks deconstruction, is to take time to bring them back to the cross.”

“We are seeing the cross, the stories of God, and the Word of God diminished in favor of uplifting cultural views instead of biblical views.”

“It is ok to question God, you can ask why, just don’t get stuck in the why.”

“We need to go back to what made us fall in love with God in the first place, that will draw us back to Christ as our source.”

“This world is not our home, we cannot fix every problem in the world even though we want to and try, ultimately we know that our salvation is found in Christ.”

“Revelations talks about how people overcame by the blood of the lamb and the word of their testimony, we have to keep coming back to that as the source.”

Key Takeaways 

“But The best part is they are having to apply a biblical worldview, not just learn a biblical worldview deal with the hottest issues of the day whatever that piece of legislation may be and think through what does the Bible say about this, what does the constitution say about it what can I learn from history.”

LIFT Principles – Limited Government. Individual Liberties, Free Enterprise, Timeless Truth

“Listen if I’m gonna be a good follower of Christ that I’m supposed to be all his commands, that’s a great commission right is to make disciples that will obey all his commands.”

“If we don’t fall in love with God’s word again,  all the things we are doing to get good people elected and be involved: “politically” none of it’s gonna work. We have to be in God’s word first and then take his word and go truly be soft not just a preservative but also bring out the best flavor in the culture.”

“We have to be in God’s word first, and then take his word and go truly be salt, not just the preservative, but also bring out the best flavor in the culture.”

“America thrives when the Bible is infused into the culture that’s why we became the most powerful, most free, most benevolent nation in history because the Bible was infusing the best principles and the salt was bringing out the best flavors.”

“We don’t have very good flavor in America right now, because we aren’t being the salt.”

“That’s what the course became, a biblical perspective on government, combined with our particular constitutional knowledge that was not taught in schools.”

“We are teaching, through the Church, what the schools should have taught, but in a biblical setting.

The Chosen is a cinematic drama based on Jesus’ life, which American director Dallas Jenkins conceived, directed, and has co-written.
