GET BEHIND ME SANTA! - Throwing Spears in the Devil's Territory

The Light of the World

2012.12.23 - Kevin Makins - GET BEHIND ME SANTA!

Throwing Spears in the Devil’s Territory

Matthew 4

Our apocalyptic Christmas ends with Jesus vs. Satan in the wilderness.

As soon as you mention “the devil” you have some clarifying to do. In our world people can often swing to extremes, either seeing satan in every doorknob or denying spirituality all together.

But the New Testament is consistently warning us that there is a spirit of the world at work, and if we are going to truly defeat evil we have to first do battle with the powers behind the scenes.

Along the way we talk about political powers, redemptive violence, Disney movies, the NRA, and throwing spears.

Soma: 1 Corinthians - Corporate Demons


2012.03.18 - Kevin Makins - Soma: 1 Corinthians

Corporate Demons

1 Corinthians 10:14-22, Ephesians 6, Revelation 2

This has quickly become one of the most debated and controversial topics we’ve ever had as a church! 

Paul makes a connection between Corinth’s idols, and demons, which leads us to ask “what are the demons today?” and “how should we engage with the powers?”

There are no simple answers, but it is a conversation we all need to have, and one that will require us to take action! 

Additionally, because of all the conversation this sermon started, we’ve added a B-Sides BonusCast to the end of the episode, with some further reflections.

This should be fun…
