November 28th, 2015 – Sermon on “The folly of deceit” by John Crisp

JohJohnCrispn’s sermon on “The folly of deceit” was aimed at exposing the foolishness of turning our backs on God. John used Israel’s attempt to evade the duty paid to the Assyrian king by soliciting the help of Egypt as an example. The scripture he used showed God’s contempt for Egypt and those that turned away from the Living God to them and others for help instead.

Notable quotes were: “Deceit never has a place in our relationship with God” and “It will always be true that deceit is a dead end”

John used the following scriptures: Isaiah 30:1-26, 2 Kings 17:1-6, Romans 2:4, Gal. 6:7, Acts 5:1-11, Ps.  32:2, 101:7, 139:23-24, 1 Pt. 2:22, Matt. 11:28-30

    Your sermon entitled “The Folly of Deceit” presented a reason for us not to participate in any form of deceit. Even if we think we can get away with it, deceit reminds us of our break in our relationship with God. There are many examples of our need to keep that channel open. Enjoyed your reminder of our need to stay close to God and His Spirit. Thanks for sharing your thoughts with us. May God bless you and your family. . .
