There will always be someone that will try to mislead you. The Bible says this in John : He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him.When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies. But the truth is that what most of us don’t realize about the devil is that his primary weapon is deception. Because Satan knows that if he can confuse or twist the truth, he can control our decisions and ultimately the outcome of our lives.

Take a right on Elm St., Turn left on Butter and Egg Road, and keep going until you see a water tower on your right, and after you pass the water tower take the first dirt road to the right and we are the fifth house on the right.
You can’t guilt people into a relationship with Jesus.
And you definitely can’t ridicule someone into a relationship with Jesus.
The only way to effectively help a person who is outside the Christian faith take the next step toward a relationship with Jesus is to meet them where they are and lovingly walk with them through all of their doubts and questions and to show them with your life what a relationship with Jesus looks like. Statistics show that approximately 25% of all baptisms in Southern Baptist Churches occur as a result of Vacation Bible School.
This statistic is used to hype the importance of VBS in local churches.You see, the false information that I gave you would lead you to make poor decisions, that would not get you to your desired destination.Lies can lead us to places that we never intended to go. Decisions that cause us tremendous amounts of embarrassment, guilt, pain, shame, and regret.But what does this statistic say about the weekly ministry environments that our churches create?Does the fact that ¼ of our baptisms come from a one week period of time each summer indicate that there is a problem with our weekly ministry environments? I just want to submit to you that this statistic should greatly disturb those of us who are responsible for the weekly ministry environments in our churches. What can we do to make them irresistible and life-changing?It is possible that I’ve forgotten what it is like to struggle with the issues of life, death, and eternity.
