Against the Flow – Part One: Dealing With Deception (July 3, 2022)


In his poem This Present Crisis, James Russell Lowell wrote, “Once to every man and nation comes the moment to decide, in the strife of Truth with Falsehood, for the good or evil side.” He lamented that in this strife, truth was “forever on the scaffold,” in danger of imminent execution.

Though we may think so, this is not new. Jesus warned us to “beware of false prophets.” There will always be influential people who will lie to suit their own ends, and many will follow them. Anyone who knows and believes the teaching of the Bible must be prepared to recognize falsehood and courageously champion its truth, even if it means going against the flow of culture.

In this series of messages, Pastor Sheppard outlines some of the foundational truths of the Bible and how they impact our response to the truth claims of the culture around us.

Speaker: Pastor David Sheppard
