This one by Francis Chan is longer, and he starts with a really stern warning about the Character of God. He ends with the amazing truth about God’s love for us and how we can get into a right relationship with God-according to what the Bible teaches, not what is popular today!
The Alpha Series is very helpful, and the entire series is online! I am helping to run a small Alpha Group right now, and I love the basics of it:
There are many more in this series. I’ll add them as I go through and watch them. They are easily found on Youtube. I really appreciate so much about the Alpha course, but I have heard about their beliefs on the Holy Spirit-or the beliefs of their church on the Holy Spirit, and I don’t necessarily agree with all of this church’s teaching on the Holy Spirit. As always, this is an excellent series. But we must be reading the Bible and in Prayer ourselves, seeking to know what the truth is. Don’t depend on other people’s work to teach you about God. That’s why I colour in my Bible-so I can look up all the purples: all the things it says about God that I coloured in. All the blues-everything I found that told how I can be saved from my sin.
Use people’s videos-mine very much included-as a jumping off point. I trust the Bible. I measure EVERYTHING with what it says, IN CONTEXT and often by digging in to the original meanings of the words using the Blue Letter Bible site. I like the parts in Alpha that explain why we can trust the Bible today. But not every translation!
