Half-Truth – Week One

Half-Truth – Week One

Week One: The Way (The Ascension)
Scripture: Mark 16:15-20
Half-Truth Explored:  “It doesn’t matter what you believe because there are many ways to God.”

A half-truth is a statement that includes some element of truth; the statement might be partly true, but in leaving out the rest of the truth, it brings about a deception. The half-truth often leads us to embrace a whole lie.  In this series, we will confront popular misconceptions and errors in thinking that our culture believes. Four of the five weeks of this series deal with basics of our faith: the Ascension, Pentecost, the Trinity and Corpus Christi. We will explore each of these truths of our faith and show the popular misconceptions they refute, including:  there are many ways to God, all religions are the same, you don’t need a Church to connect with God, The Holy Eucharist is just a symbol, and God won’t give you more than you can handle.
