1 Kings Sermon Intro Video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LSGZNhiA7E

            “Angels and Demons” is the popular movie sequel from “The DaVinci Code.”  The plot is that the Pope dies and the Catholic Church’s four Cardinals are about to select a new Pope from four prospects.  Not only do the four prospects get kidnapped, but the four Cardinals are expected to be murdered.  Not only is it crazy weird plot line, but it also has nothing to do with angels and demons!  Movies like this are cleverly designed.

            “The DaVinci Code” was designed to make the world doubt the Bible.  “Angels and Demons” was designed to make the world doubt the supernatural.  There are some teens who are too fascinated with the spirit realm, and there are others who are completely unconcerned.  We need to have a biblical balance of truly understanding it.   Continue reading

Quexts: Q&A on Angels and Demons (2 Kings 6)

Quexts are when our students text in their questions from the sermon in our last worship service.  So this video is my humble attempt to answer their questions on Angels and Demons.  Here are the questions I answered:

Is it okay to read books like “Angels and Demons”?

Show me in the bible where angels are given the freedom to dwell in earth among man rather than only being sent explicitly by God.

Do angels or anything else inhabit houses?

Did you trick or treat when you were a kid?

Angels have to be sinless to be in heaven with God right?  But obviously satan wasnt being sinless when he led eve astray.  So what happened  with that?  Were angels made with a free will to sin?

How do you tell the difference between an angel and a demon if the demon is masked as an angel?

Do you have any friends or family members who have thought they came into contact with some kind of angelic creature whether angel or demon?  I remember when one of my friends told me that he couldn’t go to sleep the night before because he sensed the presence of Satan in his room. In the middle of the night, he had to yell for his dad to come into his room because he was so afraid to get out of bed.  He was about 21 years old at the time.  A few years later, I remember hanging out with an unsaved friend of mine on Halloween night.  We were in my room listening to the radio station that was broadcasting priests going into a house of a demon possessed family to exorcize the demons.  I remember thinking about it, and quickly turning off the radio after realizing that he could become possessed since he was unsaved.
