There are two key teachings in the Bible, and the temptation for Christians is to pick one teaching at the expense of the other. Learning how to fully embrace both teachings is the message of Pastor Mike's new sermon series, "Hard Words, Loving Truths."
Pastor Mike and Amber Albee Swenson give us a preview of this two-part series, and in the process we learn some of the lies Christians still fall into, the difference between confession and repentance, and why Pastor Mike, when officiating weddings, does NOT look at the bride as she walks down the aisle but rather at the groom.
"Hard Words, Loving Truths" kicks off this Sunday, April 16.
Pastor Mike and Amber also discuss this month's new book, "True Crimes of the Bible" by Dr. Bruce Becker. Explore some of Scripture's most shocking tales of corruption, violence, confession, and redemption. You'll investigate cases of horrific sin and extravagant grace as you uncover the truth of God's holiness, justice, mercy, and love. Get this book at timeofgrace.store with your gift to the ministry.
