Last night we started our new fall series “The Biggest Lies We’ve Been Told.” We broke out into small groups and we heard first from our students – what have been the biggest lies you’ve been told.
Here’s what I thought would be some of the answers:
Everybody is doing it.
You’re too young to make a difference.
Just a little won’t hurt you.
No one will ever know.
Here’s what was actually said:
God doesn’t exist – he’s a crutch for the intellectually weak.
God could never forgive ALL of our sin.
We would never get a divorce.
I’m really sorry I hurt you. (I didn’t mean to hurt you.)
It’s not that big of a deal.
What a powerful night it turned into just because our students risked in our smaller group. When we got back, we talked about the fallout of broken trust, how we react when it’s broken. Then we walked through Genesis 3 – the scene of the biggest lie ever.
“You can’t trust God.”
You could really see some light bulbs coming on.
I’ll keep you posted as we go but what a great night.
