Temptation isn't new. From the apple in the garden, to the guy with the cute smile, to the slightly illegitimate business deal, we all face temptation. But why can't we just walk away?
In this 4-part series, Andy Stanley takes a closer look at the temptations Jesus faced in the desert to identify the driving forces behind the temptations we face every day. Once we realize what is behind temptation, and what is at stake every time we're tempted, we can find the confidence to respond as Jesus did.
If people are around, we'll meet on any given

We are on:
Ch 2 "How Could a Good God Allow Suffering", and
Ch 3 "Chrisianity is a Straightjacket"
In a recent meeting, Tim Keller had us consider a possibility: Maybe God would never put anyone in a remote place with no option of hearing the gospel; he would only put people there who would never respond. Maybe that's not exactly it, but God has a way of making it fair in his infinite wisdom.
Also, Tim asked non-believers to excuse us, because we believe in this guy Jesus who lived 2000 years ago and he appeared to rise from the dead, and we believe that, and we are convinced he did miracles, and saved the world from sin. So we think he's pretty special, more special than anyone who's ever lived. So please excuse us for thinking he's the only way.

On Saturday, Sep 13, 2014 we started a new study: James Montgomery Boice Bible study on the gospel of John.
Sample: On Sep 13: We learned that in the beginning the "word" was with God, and was God. And word is "logos" in Greek and had special meaning for both the Jews and the Greeks when it was written. For Jews it echoes God's creation in Genesis. For Greeks it goes back to philosopher Heraclitus, who first taught the Greeks that some logos force organized all the world and even our own minds.
