Part of living an intentional life means diligently filtering what we are being told. Since men are bombarded by lies constantly, we must choose carefully what we are building the foundation of our marriage, our fathering, and our life upon. On a daily basis we hear potentially destructive things like…
- You’re not hurting anyone else by doing that secret sin.
- Everyone cuts corners, it’s how business is done.
- It’s ok to look at women as long as you don’t act on your thoughts.
In this video Francis Chan shares two of the biggest lies we buy into today. You’ll see the effect they have on many of the decisions we make – even how likely we are to accept the other lies that come our way.
What are these two big lies? See if these sound familiar.
- I AM A GOOD PERSON.
- BECAUSE GOD IS A LOVING GOD HE WILL NOT PUNISH ME FOR MY SIN.
In 5 minutes Francis tells us why it is important to look to God’s Word for absolute truth and not to the world’s opinion. While the world may make us feel better it leads to certain destruction.
