Sermons in “Hell On Earth”

Who Do You Think You Are?

Who am I Lord, that you should call me? So often we feel inadequate and that feeling keeps us from responding to God’s call on us. Yet the truth is, that feeling is a lie; we are adequate because God makes us so. To resist God’s call because of fear is to live in Hell on Earth.

More is Less

Debt isn’t the only problem we have with money, it’s just a symptom of the larger problem that we are addicted to money. When we are addicted we use our money in ways that dehumanize ourselves, others and separate us from God.

Changing Our Focus

Our culture has become obsessed with sex with the overarching message that if you’re not having regular, exciting, and fulfilling sex then you’re missing out and there may be something wrong with you. While Scripture affirms sex as a good, it is a lesser good and is not the end all and be all of human existence. This is why we are called — in whatever status we are in — to practice chastity as a part of our worship to God.

It’s Closer Than You Think

For many of us when we hear the word ‘hell’ we conjure up images of deep cavernous pits full of fire, brimstone, suffering souls and devils. On the other hand when we hear the word ‘heaven’ we think of spacious skies filled with happy people and angels. Without denying that the Bible speaks of heaven and hell, we recognize that these ways of thinking about those destinations sometimes blind us to the fact that heaven and hell are ways we choose to live today; life with or without God and life lived in a way that is humanizing or dehumanizing. In short, all kinds of people — both Christian and non —choose to live out a hell on earth. This series is meant to help us see the classical areas when we might be choosing life apart from God and invite us into the life of the resurrection (heaven).
