Not a Fan - Sermon 4 - The comfortable cross
SERMON TOPIC: Not a Fan - Sermon 4 - The comfortable cross
Speaker: Des Burrows
Date: 26 June 2011
Topic Groups: DISCIPLESHIP
Sermon synopsis: There is the danger that we will love COMFORT too much.
And we bring this into our relationship with church and ultimately with God.
Our Buildings are air conditioned. The chairs are padded and have just enough space for us to cross our legs.
There is nothing wrong with this BUT eventually our messages become 'padded' with easy teaching.
Our doctrines that hold up our beliefs become 'lifeless'.
The message of the Messiah becomes nothing more than motivational – almost 'New Age'.
Everything about the church is influenced by our COMFORT.
