Colossians Part 1
Posted by Ashley Ellison
"Colossians Part 1" by Ashley Ellison dives into some of the issues that the church of Colosse was dealing with that our culture still deals with today. Eastern philosophy and Jewish legalism, or gnoticism, was threatening the church, and Paul addresses them head-on. We can learn from Paul's teaching that God is very near to us and not a distant God.

    The Dividing Line Part 3
    Posted by Ashley Ellison
    Pastor Ashley Ellison continues talking about biblical lines and wisdom lines. Some dividing lines that we make in our lives are simply based on what is wise (Ephesians 5) and not specific Scripture. He gives us 3 instances where we might feel as if we need to cross our dividing lines in order to "be somebody", but in fact, we do not. Crossing our dividing lines often results in more pain than popularity in the end.

    Everyone draws lines of acceptance and rejection in different places, but what do we base where we draw our lines off of? Pastor Ashley Ellison teaches us to look at what the Lord says about things, and not base our "dividing lines" off of other people.
