-Have you ever tried to go somewhere with only half a map?
-Have you ever tried to navigate a new neighbourhood with an out-of-date G.P.S. in your car?
-Have you ever tried to assemble a BBQ with basic picture prompts but instructions that were in a different language?
-Have you ever tried to study for a test with a text book that is 6 editions out of date?
Some information can be helpful—but it can also be hurtful if we think it’s the whole picture (when it’s not). In life this happens all the time. We hear things like “God accepts you just the way you are” or “Nice people go to heaven when they die” or “This is the Christian thing to do” and then make a whole series of assumptions about those statements that leave us with half-truths that actually misinform, and therefore, hurt us.
On July 15, 22, and 29 our pastor will lead us through a 3-part series called “Oops! – Half-truths we believe, how they hurt us, and how biblical truth can get us back on track.” In it, he’ll expose three 3 half-truths, identify how they hurt us, and take us into our Bibles to get us back on track for more faithful, fruitful and fulfilling lives.
Oh, and he’s asking you to B.Y.O.B. — bring your own Bibles! We’re going to look up some passages together, and give you the opportunity to make some notes.
Have you ever tried to do a puzzle with half of the pieces missing? If so, you’ll know that a part of the picture isn’t the same as the whole picture—and it’s also way less fulfilling.
So join in. And let’s grow together.
