Sermon Illustrations


A person who is seeking for signs and wonders has turned God into a personal Genie in a Bottle. And because of that, when God fails to come through for them, they often turn away from Him completely.

Ted Turner (the founder of CNN and some other enterprises) has been known to make a few insulting remarks about Christians. But in an interview with the New Yorker magazine in April 2001, he said he had once planned to become a missionary. He said he turned his back on Christianity when his younger sister died of an immune system disease. He said, "I couldn't understand how someone so innocent should be allowed to suffer so."
