Sometimes what we believe about the Christian life comes a single but prominent point of view—an older Christian we look up to, a preacher, or a parent. But is there only one way of living the life of a Jesus follower?
The Christian life—even one centered on grace—can still feel like a long list of dos and don’ts. But what if there’s more (and less) to our faith than we typically believe? In this series based on his book A Contrarian's Guide to Knowing God, pastor Larry Osborne tackles ten popular assumptions about Christian living that create stress and failure rather growth and joy.
A thought provoking video Bible study on culture and how it has shaped the message of Christianity.
