From Under God to Over God
Rusty George | July 31, 2022
In this message we talk about a big drift we all went through over the past few years as we’ve all went through a lot of pandemics. We’ve gone through the COVID pandemic and we might be seeing the light a bit, but we’re still very much in the midst of an economic pandemic, a racial pandemic, a political pandemic. And as a church, we’ve had to make a lot of decisions that have affected many of us in different ways. But as individuals, things got crazy! And if we’re being honest, a lot of Christians didn’t behave so well during these pandemics and still aren’t. We have drifted from what Jesus said toward what we want Jesus to endorse. So in this message, Rusty encourages us to “drop anchor.” He says, “following Jesus may be optional, but how we do so is not.” We go through a few things Jesus said in the Gospels that are non-negotiables so that we can follow Jesus on his terms, not ours.
