"If then you have been raised with Christ, seek the things that are above, where Christ is, seated at the right hand of God. Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth. For you have died, and your life is hidden with Christ in God. When Christ who is your life appears, then you also will appear with him in glory." - Colossians 3:1-4 

 

Cynicism

Feb 19, 2017

Acts 9:1-19
Now as he went on his way, he approached Damascus, and suddenly a light from heaven shone around him.

We will working with this definition over the weekend: Cynicism is "an embittered disposition of distrust born out of disillusionment." We all grow up idealistic about all kinds of things, love, romance, marriage, service, parenting, church, and even God. What happens over time is that reality creeps in and we have a moment of disillusionment, where we come to grips that all we thought about a given thing, comes unraveled. The romance didn't work. The job didn't deliver what it promised. The cause exposed an underbelly that intolerable. The church was so hypocritical and unkind. These are moments of disillusionment and they spark the idealistic person to come to grips with reality. This is the birth of cynicism and the death of Christian hope. Paul, after being knocked off his horse, was resilient to cynicism, how? Join us as we expose cynicism for the sickness that it is.
