Sermon Illustrations

Side note:

All kinds of people claim to have spiritual experiences.

Just because someone claims something – doesn’t make it valid.

Neighbor – I have daily discussions with my dog

About the middle east.

My guess is that you would not grant him the benefit of the doubt.

But if that same neighbor claims to have a spiritual experience

We don’t question it.

All claimed spiritual experiences are not spiritual.

All spiritual experiences are not of God.

Many spiritual experiences will lead you away from God.
