The Lie: "We would have treated Jesus differently." The Truth: Jesus had to suffer for the guilty to go free. How do we live into this truth? Mourn your sin, receive your Savior, and accept your powerlessness.

The Lie: "The University of Alabama is too spiritually dark for Jesus." The Truth: What is impossible for us is easy for God: He is the light, and the darkness cannot overcome His presence. How to live in this truth: Recognize and live by the light in us: The Holy Spirit.
The Lie: "Be or do--which does God care most about?" The Truth: Christianity is about both being and doing. How do we live into this truth? Surrender, receive pruning, and participate in God's kingdom in your normal life.
The Lie: "Jesus' peace is about escaping the world" The Truth: Jesus' peace for your life in this world and the world to come Living in this truth: Bring all your anxieties to Him and receive His blessings
What is the lie and why do we believe it? "Faith in Jesus means faith in ideas." What is the truth and why is it better? Faith in Jesus means faith in a person. How do we live in this truth?
