    SS-Part 16 - The Coming Apostasy Is Here The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 3-19-06 While all Christians would pray that God would bring a revival in our time, the Bible tells us that before the return of Christ, there will instead be a falling away an apostasy – and that within the professing church.

    01/05/2013 Duração: 52min

    SS-Part 15 - Your Word is Truth The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 3-12-06 As Jesus stood before him, the Roman authority asked What is truth?

    SS-Part 14 - The Wonderful Counselor The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 3-05-06 Over the last couple of weeks, we have been examining Psychology and the various ways that the church of Christ has embraced some of its ideas and practices. Today, we begin to look more directly toward Jesus, The Wonderful Counselor and His word, which cleanses us and counsels us. With all that promises to bring satisfaction, fulfillment and even healing – the fact remains that in Christ we find all that we need. And so, on that thought we continue our study The Wonderful Counselor, part of our current series The Battle For Truth.

    01/05/2013 Duração: 38min

    SS-Part 20 - How Can We Know God Exists - Part 2 The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 1-08-06 While those who deny the existence of God say it is because there is no evidence – the reason for disbelief is oftentimes a much deeper, personal one.

  • SS-013 - Psychology & Self Esteem- The Battle For Truth Series

    30/04/2013 Duração: 41min

    SS-Part 13 - Psychology & Self Esteem The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 2-26-06 One idea that we hear a lot about today is that of Self-Esteem. While developing a positive self-image might seem like a healthy practice, we should consider whether this inward focus will ultimately take our gaze away from the One who’s estimation of us matters most. When it comes to our spiritual, mental, emotional – even physical well-being, is it really healthy to turn our focus inward in order to gird up our supposedly poor self-image? It might surprise you to learn that Jesus didn’t think so. We will discuss this today as Pastor Phil concludes our look at Psychology and Self-Esteem, part of our ongoing series, The Battle for Truth.

  • SS-011 - Psychology-New Truth or Old Lie? Part 1- The Battle For Truth Series

    29/04/2013 Duração: 45min

    SS-Part 11 - Psychology-New Truth or Old Lie? The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 2-12-06 Christians know that Christ is sufficient to meet all of our physical and eternal needs, yet when it comes to our emotional and mental needs, we might tend toward professional help. We hope that our current study on Psychology, part of our series The Battle For Truth, will help you to discover the true source of genuine healing. It seems to make perfect sense that if we go to a medical doctor when we are physically sick, then we would naturally seek out professional, psychological help when it comes to issues regarding the mind – right Well, we hope that our current study will help you to at least consider why this may not, in fact be the way to true and lasting peace of mind.

  • SS-012 - Psychology-New Truth or Old Lie? Part 2- The Battle For Truth Series

    28/04/2013 Duração: 44min

    SS-Part 12 - Psychology-New Truth or Old Lie? Part 2 The Battle For Truth Sermon Series Orig Date: 2-19-06 As we continue our current series, The Battle for Truth, we focus again today on the subject of Psychology in the church. And we hope that as we consider this important topic, that we will come to more fully understand and embrace what it means to be complete in Christ As we continue our study on Psychology in the church, we consider the background of those who are viewed as the fathers of modern psychology in an effort to better understand the ideas that they have put forth, and to test these concepts in the light of God’s Word.

  • SS-009-The Battle For Truth-Part 9-Visualization & Inner Healing

    24/04/2013 Duração: 39min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier Visualization & Inner Healing A lot is said these days about the power of the mind, and having a positive mental attitude. But, what do these terms mean, and do they imply more than just the ability to see the glass as half-full. Behold, all things become new. So said Paul about all who are born again in Christ. So, while our experiences certainly have an impact on our lives, we can rejoice in knowing that through Christ, we can be free from the bondage of our past. We will learn more today as we focus on the subject of Visualization and Inner Healing. Here is Pastor Phil.

  • SS-008-The Battle For Truth-Part 8-Creative Visualization

    24/04/2013 Duração: 42min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier Creative Visualization In the Garden of Eden, Satan's main objective was to deceive the man and woman to believe that they were gods – exercising their own wills, determining their own way. Satan still works to bring people under the power of this delusion by encouraging them toward a number of practices that promise the power to control or even invent our own reality. If this sounds strange, keep listening as Pastor Phil shares on Creative Visualization

  • SS-007-The Battle For Truth-Part 7-Faith and Positive Confession

    24/04/2013 Duração: 44min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier Faith and Positive Confession For some time now we have been engaged in a series entitled The Battle for Truth and have been focusing on a very specific lie that Satan has been trying to introduce into society's consciousness. Well, this lie has also found its expression within the Body of Christ as well. This sad reality provides the theme of this section of our series. When the Bible commends us to walk in faith, pray in faith or simply to have faith, is it suggesting that faith is a force to be manipulated for personal gain What is the source and object of our faith. We need to consider these vitally important questions if we are going to understand our faith as it relates to the sovereignty of God. Thanks for joining us as we continue this message Faith and Positive Confession.

  • SS-010-The Battle For Truth-Part 10-Visualization and Prayer

    23/04/2013 Duração: 46min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier Visualization and Prayer At first thought, prayer seems an easy enough concept to grasp and practice. But its important that we evaluate, and consider some of the practices that are being advanced as new methods of prayer. We sometimes ask people to visualize something when we are trying to help them understand an idea that we are trying to explain. But what happens when we draw this idea into the realm of prayer. Is it a good idea. Is it a valid method for seeking the Lord.

  • SS-006-The Battle For Truth-Part 6-The Christian God-Men

    11/04/2013 Duração: 45min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier The Christian God-Men The idea of judging another persons views can be a pretty offensive idea to many. But, when it comes to doctrine, it becomes very important that we compare all teachings with the Scriptures – to judge according to revealed truth. This is our responsibility, and this is the theme of todays teaching in our ongoing series The Battle for Truth. For all that Jesus taught us about crucifying our flesh, it seems strange that there has come into the church of God teachings that exalt sinful, fallen man, and in the process minimize the eternal, holy God.

  • SS-005-The Battle For Truth-Part 5-An Urgent Call To Battle

    11/04/2013 Duração: 45min

    The Battle For Truth Pastor Phil Ballmaier An Urgent Call To Battle In his Epistle, Jude urged us to contend for the faith which was once for all delivered to the saints. God has not called us to complacency, but to combat – and the eternal destinies of millions lies in the balance. Jesus did call us to unity, to love one another as He loves us. But, did Jesus command unity at any cost. Pastor Phil shares on this sensitive, but important issue as we continue our series, The Battle for Truth.

  • SS-004-The Battle For Truth-Part 4-The Lie Branches Out

    11/04/2013 Duração: 38min

    The Battle For Truth The Lie Branches Out Pastor Phil Ballmaier While Satan seeks to destroy faith in the true God, and will use many forms of deception, there does seem to be one specific lie that he tries hardest to inject into our thinking. If we are going to cling to that which is true, then clearly we must learn to distinguish what is true from what is false.
