Not the Way It's Supposed to Be

A Biblical Study on Sin

Easter 2018: The Answer

1 Corinthians 15 • April 1, 2018 • Brian Watts

As we conclude our series this week for Easter, we reflect on and lament how we all sense the world is not the way it's supposed to be. However, the good news we look at this week in 1 Corinthians 15 is that the resurrection of Jesus Christ marks the beginning of the world returning to the way it's supposed to be.

The True Barometer

Mark 14:32-42 • March 25, 2018 • Brian Watts

Sometimes it's easy to minimize our sin and make it seem like it is not that bad. We continue our series this week and begin Passion Week by looking at the anguish Christ went through in Mark 14 and how we need to use that as our barometer of our sin.

The Response to Sin

Psalm 51:1-19 • March 18, 2018 • Brian Watts

We've spent quite a bit of time discussing sin over the past few weeks. But what do you do when you are confronted with that sin? We continue our series by examining Psalm 51 this week and looking at David's response before God when he was confronted with a great sin.

The Broken Compass

Judges 19-21 • March 4, 2018 • Brian Watts

There is no greater creed in our culture than follow your heart. The problem is, it assumes that you and I have a good heart. We continue our series by examining the end of Judges and looking at what we typically use as our moral compass versus what should be our guide.

The Motivation Behind Sin

Luke 22:14-30 • February 25, 2018 • Brian Watts

We are radically self-centered creatures! As we continue our series this week, we consider the danger of our self-centeredness and how it is the motivation behind our sin.

The Most Overlooked Sins

James 4:13-17 • February 18, 2018 • Brian Watts

In week 6 of our series, we examine the most overlooked sins. We are usually aware of the things that we do that we shouldn't do. But we often overlook the things we should do but don't. In this message, we examine our sins of omission which are subtle but incredibly destructive.

Idol Making Factories

Ezekiel 14:1-11 • February 11, 2018 • Brian Watts

As we continue our series this week, we look at how sin has caused our hearts to worship many things other than God. Ezekiel 14 shows us not only what this idolatry is and why it is bad, but also how to get out of it.

Life at a Costume Party

Hebrews 3:13 • February 4, 2018 • Brian Watts

In week 4 of our series, we study Hebrews 3:13 and look at how sin is so deceiving because it constantly dresses itself up as something it's not.

Mankind's Universal Problem

Romans 3:9-26 • January 28, 2018 • Brian Watts

Sin is the one problem that none of mankind can escape. This week, we looked at how Paul defines this problem in Romans 3 and also how it can be overcome.

The Great Predator

Genesis 4:1-16 • January 21, 2018 • Brian Watts

We continue our series on sin by looking at how sin is the great predator through one of the first examples of this in Genesis 4.

Shalom Vandalized

Genesis 3 • January 14, 2018 • Brian Watts

We begin this new series by looking at and defining sin through the lens of the first sin in Genesis 3.
