The Most Important Question Facing Our Culture Today (Branson 2013)
What is the most important question facing our culture today that people have been asking over 2,000 years as revealed in Matthew 21:23-32? Why do people fail to acknowledge the authority and Lordship of Jesus Christ? How should you respond to the skeptic when it comes to their questions about evolution vs. creation or their question as to whether the Bible is really God’s Word? What does it mean to yield to God’s authority? Does your testimony reflect one that has submitted to Christ and is guided by the Holy Spirit?
