     | 3,069 views

    In this part we will examine the purpose of our creation, satan’s deception and the process of temptation. We can clearly observe that nothing has changed since the beginning. Will we learn from history or relive it?

    Contributed by Chris Appleby on Oct 18, 2000
     | 3,005 views

    To be perfect as God is perfect, paradoxically, requires us to understand our own weaknesses and failures the way God does, and to love ourselves, despite those weaknesses and failures, the way God does.

    It may sound like a contradiction in terms to have a sermon on the temptation to be perfect. After all aren’t temptations about being imperfect. Doesn’t God want us to be perfect just as he’s perfect? But you know, there is such a thing as the temptation to be perfect. All of us are subject to it ...read more
