Loving Things, Using People and Using God
Someone once switched the order and coined the phrase, "Using People and Loving Things" to denote the upside-down way some people live. I've added "and Using God" because in Judges 17-18, we have just that - people using God's name to get whatever they want. The story of Micah's idols is strange and hard to understand unless you see in light of the whole Judges narrative - a people living apart from God and yet blind to it."05_UsingGod" from 08_Judges by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2016. Genre: Other.

    Stupid Is as Stupid Does
    The story of Samson is fairly well known - at least the part about his hair and his strength. Have you wondered why it is in the Bible or what it has to teach us today? Samson was stupid; he had no moral character; he had no leadership skills; he flew off the handle and sought revenge on anyone he thought had wronged him; he had no restraint. (Hmmm ... sound familiar?)

    Why Fitting In Is a Sin
    Remember the picture game, "Where's Waldo?" Well, Israel kind of started it; blending in with the Canaanites, not standing out in any way. When we desire to be just like the people of the world, we risk participating in the same sins they do."03_FittingIn" from 08_Judges by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2016. Genre: Other.

    Who’s Your God?
    Paper or plastic? (ok, maybe that's a bit dated) But still, life is FULL of choices. The Book of Judges is set just after the time when Joshua had gathered the nation together and challenged them, "Choose this day whom you will serve!" We are faced with that challenge - will we choose the Almighty God of the Bible or will we choose a god of our own making?"02_WhosYourGod" from 08_Judges by G. Scott Patterson. Released: 2016.

    1 of 6 The final story from the Book of Judges gives us a look at a nation and people who decide to do things according to their own set of rules instead of following God's.
