Thanks to Leonardo Da Vinci, and the book named after him, we have some very inaccurate views of the last supper. This DVD shows us what the last supper would have looked like based on historical evidence of the time. In doing so, you get a far clearer understanding of many of the symbols Christ performed during his last meal with his disciples. Don’t let the poor quality fool you, this is a very powerful video.
There are seemingly endless theories as to what the mark of the beast is, the most common in the modern era being the RFID chip. But are we making the same mistake as the Jews of old, by literally applying this symbol. Ray Hobbs takes us through a simple explanation of why the RFID chip isn’t a logical interpretation of this scripture, and shows us a plausible alternative.
For many, the pursuit to happiness is an all consuming goal. We hope to find fulfillment and joy in the fashion of the world, or the various entertainments of the world, but though some fun can be found in those areas, the will never bring true happiness. So how do we get happiness? Do we get the job we have always wanted? Do we get the partner we always wanted? Do we watch the movie we’ve been dying to see? Do we ignore the pain and suffering in the world, by medicating it with drugs or alcohol or any of the many social addictions in the world?
Contrary to popular belief, these things simply don’t have what it takes to produce a long term happiness. In this sermon, Mark shows us what will give us fulfillment and true happiness in this life.
We are often told that we need to overcome sin, but we are rarely told how to do that. In this very practical sermon Mark Turner helps us understand why we get angry, or stressed or depressed, and how a simple shift in perspective can help us on a path to avoiding anger.
The bible has a lot to say about the virtue of working hard and not being lazy but for many of us these days the opposite is actually a bigger issue. Many struggle through life, trying harder and harder to do bigger and better things, but what for? In this interesting sermon, Greg Pratt takes us through the steps that turn a good thing, into an idol… and how to get out of that trap.
People are often incredibly afraid of the concept of judgement, for this reason the investigative judgment starting in 1844 is not a particularly popular doctrine in the SDA church. In this powerful sermon, King Tshuma shows us clearly how judgement is not something to fear, but to crave. This sermon also finishes with a moving testimony about how King was forced to live through the death of his entire tribe, and how he dealt with that.
Often when looking at the extreme of church authority that was the catholic church through the dark ages, we take a view that “therefore we should submit to no one”. What is a correct understanding of this, and how can we avoid taking either extreme of blindly trusting, or blindly despising all church authority. Very good sermon.
