To call out to the real God is to call out to Jesus Christ…but next time… “Don’t cut it so close!” Pray… “Jesus, I’m a sinner, who believes You paid the price for me at Calvary.

He frequently interjects these quotes from scripture to begin a series of questioning. This serves to make his point of view more relatable to the audience, an audience that may not have converted to catholicism yet. By asking these questions Augustine awkledges the doubts that happen when someone believes in God, doubts that he had for the time before his conversion to catholicism. Even the fact that he writes these questions and admits to not having answers is

Sunday Night Madness It was an early Sunday morning and everyone in town was at church except for one suspicious man, Allen Fade. Allen was 24 and the only child or family member left. Unfortunately, Allen did not believe in religion and thought it was all wrong. When he was younger, he use to go to church every Sunday until one day he got really sick.

As a Baptist church, they hope every guest will join them in their mission to become more like Jesus Christ, and they will do everything they can to support you along your spiritual journey.

The story is basically about the hospitality of this widow towards the prophet even when she was lacking everything, and how this behavior of hers was rewarded by God through the prophet. Based on this topic, the reverend preached about hospitality and as believer how important it was do this act. The message aspect is quite similar to my regular church, as the messaged are based on certain bible portions.
In the book of Galatians, Paul identifies specific gifts the believer receives from the Holy Spirit when they decide to surrender their life and follow God. Paul describes these gifts as fruit in the life of the believer, refined through a continual walk with God. In order to equip the believer, God provides the believer these gifts. Faithfulness is one of these gifts. A common misconception of faith in God is the belief He fixes what is wrong in our lives.
