Urban Legends #2
[Video, Eerie Sounds] Well, I wanted to give you a little bit of, kind of a little bit of scoop on the now famous haunted house video. If you are new with us, we were promoting our legends, and we were at a house where there is an urban legend, where a little girl was supposed to be murdered, and now, she haunts the house. And the freaky thing is, we found in the video a couple of freaky images. If you want to see it, you can go to Utube.com, type in Urban Legends and it is there on the first page. We have had thousands of people looking at it. We have been bombarded with emails, phone calls. In fact, Sarah, you got this one in this morning. Whatís the email say?
[Sarah] It says, ďSarah, my name is William and I attend the Edmond campus. Can you please get this message to Craig? My friends and I used to go to that house for fun. One night, I swear we felt a presence and heard a female voice asking for help. Most people donít believe us, but we will never go back to that house. Anyway, thanks for your ministry. God is good. William.Ē
[Craig] Yeah, weíve got some parents who are a little freaked out because their kids are scared. Let me be just very clear. I donít believe this house is haunted. I donít think we are seeing a ghost. I do believe in evil spirits. I do believe in demons, but when a little girl dies, they donít turn into an evil spirit, so I wanted to introduce you. This is Mark. He is the guy who shot the video, and he is the one who found this first. Do you want to just talk us through what you think?
[Mark] Well, Iím not really sure, Craig, because you see, the first shot I had out here, itís tilted down from the window there. You know, thereís Ö the sun glares on there, so my guess is, we were shooting you through the window over here. You kind of see it for the first time coming up. Right there. Pretty weird.
[Craig] Show it to us again. What, what could that be? Go ahead and roll it.
[Mark] Well, you know, that could be someone walking outside, a reflection of light or something like that, but what is strange is, the second one Ö Iím kind of going, Iím rolling in the same direction, but the thing is going the other way.
[Craig] Yeah, show it to us one more time. It looks like a person.
[Mark] But, here we go. Here we go. Rolling. Strange.
[Craig] Yeah, so it could be some light reflection, could be camera, so itís nothing to worry about. It is an interesting house. We wonít go back there, but today we will talk about another urban legend.
Well, welcome today to all of our campuses, and all of you watching on video. If you have your Bibles with you, please open them today to II Timothy 4. Thatís where we are going to start, as we continue our study on Urban Legends. Today, I want to talk to you about a spiritual urban legend that I think is one of the most dangerous, and yet, one of the most common spiritual urban legends in the American church today. You will hear people talk about this. You will hear it on TV today with TV preachers. Youíll read books about it, and you will hear it over and over and over again, and it is a message that feels very good. Here is the urban legend. It goes something like this. God wants you happy. God has good things in store for you. God wants you to enjoy your life. God wants
