Faces of the Law
Popular culture would have people believe a truth is only true if an individual makes it true. In other words, society wants us to believe we can discard truths based on fickle popular ideas or our personal changing situations. Living in the midst of such a society confuses the Christian. Thus, the message of Ephesians 4:4-6 becomes at best negotiable and at worst abandoned. Unfortunately, many Christians cannot identify worldly philosophy from Christian doctrine.
Through Faces of the Law, participants will understand the stability and authority of truth. Together, these faces give the truth of Christianity substance. Out of these faces flows the true freedom of faith in God. In His great authority, God has established a law, a boundary. He is our loving divine Parent. These laws create boundaries, but that is only the beginning; The law leads to liberty. The law teaches liberty. The law is liberty.
