If others shape up, my life will work out (Lie #2)

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: slander, speech, words

Why do we wound other people with our words? Could it be we unwittingly buy into the lie that says, ‘when other people shape up, my life will improve’. The lie is as subtle as it is dangerous. James exposes the lie, and Jesus offers a much better way to live and speak with one another.  Text: James 4:11-12; John 13:34-35; Proverbs 19:10

Pleasure will satisfy my longing for happiness (Lie #1)

Speaker: Al Stoltzfus
Topics: conflict, Humility, repentance, words

Why do we fight with those we love? Could it be the problem is deep within us? A lie we have come to believe? Like a skilled surgeon, James diagnosis the source of relational conflict. Once exposed, he offers a simple, Christ-centered cure for conflict.  Text: James 4:1-10
