MINE, MINE, MINE Text: Numbers 16:1-35

Ill: Bill Cosby—Joke about kids fighting over a toy---“Mine, Mine, Mine” ---“I don’t care about justice, I Just Want Peace”

Unfortunately, that’s the attitude many churches have today,

They just want peace regardless the cost. (compromise)

Folks, When rebels raise their ugly heads their will be no peace until they are dealt with by God and God’s people.
