‍“Your ‍Destiny, ‍Your ‍Decision" ‍- ‍ ‍[Deut. ‍30:15-20; ‍Mat. ‍7:13,14] ‍— ‍There ‍are ‍but ‍two ‍ways, ‍two ‍destinies ‍- ‍1) ‍Eternal ‍Life ‍or ‍2) ‍Eternal ‍Death, ‍[seperation ‍from ‍God]. ‍There ‍are ‍but ‍two ‍responses ‍to ‍our ‍options, ‍1) ‍belief ‍& ‍obedience, ‍or ‍2) ‍unbelief ‍and ‍rebellion. ‍Our ‍Decision ‍To ‍Follow ‍God ‍(or ‍Not) ‍Affects ‍EVERY ‍Other ‍Decision ‍We ‍Make. ‍Wise ‍Decision ‍Making ‍Is ‍In ‍Direct ‍Correlation ‍To ‍The ‍Degree ‍In ‍Which ‍We ‍Respect, ‍Love, ‍& ‍Trust ‍God ‍& ‍Understand ‍His ‍Revealed ‍Will.  — ‍MP3 ‍/  PPT ‍/ ‍KEYNOTE ‍/ ‍PDF ‍- ‍12/18/2016

‍“Being ‍United ‍In ‍A ‍Divisive ‍World” ‍-  (James ‍3:14-4:10) ‍- ‍One ‍of ‍Satan’s ‍most ‍effective ‍weapons ‍is ‍DIVISION. ‍Since ‍sin ‍first ‍entered ‍the ‍world, ‍division ‍has ‍existed ‍- ‍and ‍will ‍continue ‍to ‍exist, ‍even ‍in ‍eternity. ‍Many ‍recognize ‍the ‍value ‍of ‍“unity,” ‍and ‍seek ‍to ‍unite ‍humanity ‍by ‍attempting ‍to ‍dismiss ‍absolutes, ‍such ‍as ‍the ‍very ‍existance ‍of ‍God ‍and ‍Satan, ‍the ‍reality ‍of ‍truth ‍and ‍error, ‍sin ‍and ‍righteousness, ‍moral ‍and ‍immoral, ‍etc. ‍In ‍this ‍lesson ‍we ‍will ‍demonstrate ‍the ‍reality ‍of ‍the ‍problem ‍/ ‍why ‍the ‍problem ‍exists ‍/ ‍the ‍necessity ‍of ‍division ‍/ ‍and ‍the ‍ONLY ‍provision ‍& ‍basis ‍upon ‍which ‍unity ‍with ‍God ‍& ‍man ‍can ‍be ‍achieved. ‍- ‍MP3  / ‍PPT ‍/ ‍KEYNOTE ‍/ ‍PDF ‍- ‍04/10/2016
