Flashback! Joshua 24:14-26 Jos 24:14 ESV - "Now therefore fear the LORD and serve him in sincerity and in faithfulness. Put away the gods that your fathers served beyond the River and in Egypt, and serve the LORD.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Subjectivism: An Antichrist religion. Premise of the religion: There is no such thing as absolute truth. Oddly enough this religion has a few core tenants of right and wrong. The New Tolerance: Anything goes, unless your religion requires others to believe what you believe. It’s wrong to “judge” It’s right to let everyone believe what they want. It’s wrong to tell someone they are wrong. . . . unless.

PowerPoint Presentation:

If you say someone else is “wrong” you will be told you are “wrong”. Consensus of the masses can make it OK.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rom 1:18 ESV - For the wrath of God is revealed from heaven against all ungodliness and unrighteousness of men, who by their unrighteousness suppress the truth. Rom 1:19 ESV - For what can be known about God is plain to them, because God has shown it to them. Rom 1:20 ESV - For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rom 1:21 ESV - For although they knew God, they did not honor him as God or give thanks to him, but they became futile in their thinking, and their foolish hearts were darkened. Rom 1:22 ESV - Claiming to be wise, they became fools, Rom 1:23 ESV - and exchanged the glory of the immortal God for images resembling mortal man and birds and animals and creeping things.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Rom 1:24 ESV - Therefore God gave them up in the lusts of their hearts to impurity, to the dishonoring of their bodies among themselves , Sexual Immorality Rom 1:26 ESV - For this reason God gave them up to dishonorable passions. For their women exchanged natural relations for those that are contrary to nature ; Sexual Deviation Rom 1:28 ESV - And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind to do what ought not to be done .

A Righteousness from God! Rom 3:21 ESV - But now the righteousness of God has been manifested apart from the law, although the Law and the Prophets bear witness to it-- Rom 3:22 ESV - the righteousness of God through faith in Jesus Christ for all who believe. For there is no distinction: Rom 3:23 ESV - for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God, Rom 3:24 ESV - and are justified by his grace as a gift, through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus, Rom 3:25 ESV - whom God put forward as a propitiation by his blood, to be received by faith. This was to show God's

PowerPoint Presentation:

1Jo 3:1 ESV - See what kind of love the Father has given to us, that we should be called children of God; and so we are. The reason why the world does not know us is that it did not know him. 1Jo 3:2 ESV - Beloved, we are God's children now, and what we will be has not yet appeared; but we know that when he appears we shall be like him, because we shall see him as he is. 1Jo 3:3 ESV - And everyone who thus hopes in him purifies himself as he is pure.

Eph 3:16 NIV - I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through his Spirit in your inner being, Eph 3:17 NIV - so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, Eph 3:18 NIV - may have power, together with all the Lord's holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, Eph 3:19 NIV - and to know this love that surpasses knowledge--that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Eph 3:20 NIV - Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, Eph 3:21 NIV - to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen.
