In college, our guest found herself challenged to defend her faith, and the beliefs she knew to be true began to unravel. Today, she shares her journey of discovering the biblical Jesus and the key conversations that led her from the faith of her ancestors to conversion to Christianity. She will help us understand the nuances of the history and evolution of Mormon culture and we will learn to identify the vital differences between the Mormon and biblical plans of salvation. Come with your questions.
Join us for a full hour of learning how to think critically and live biblically. We start by looking at an energized movement working to give rights to animals and why some are buying into the lie. Then, life rarely follows our rules! Events occur---an unforeseen loss, a heartbreaking betrayal, a family member in need, or any of a thousand other possibilities---and suddenly your journey has taken a detour you weren't prepared to endure. What if it's all part of God's plan? Join us as one of the world’s best and most insightful Bible teachers offers scriptural hope and wisdom for those struggling with unexpected situations.
