Disclaimer: Today’s sermon comes from my reading in a book by Jeff Myers. The Secret Battle of Ideas about God: Overcoming the Outbreak of Five Fatal Worldviews.  I have organized, condensed and added my own thoughts, but much of the content and framework are Dr. Myers thoughts, Secondly, I am not going to preach exegetically today as is my normal pattern, walking us through a text.  I want to talk more pastorally, topically today, nevertheless I believe this will be fruitful for us as we gather today.  I pray these words are timely.
