What Would Jesus Say to …? Overview

This five-part series will explore what Jesus would say about the issues that dominate social media, the news, and conversations at work. Rather than avoid these topics, as the church is sometimes tempted to do, our goal is to provide you with a biblical framework so you can have an informed conversation with your kids, neighbors, or coworkers.

April 2-3: Caitlyn Jenner (transgender) — Ken Hensley

There is much gender confusion in our culture. The lines between men and women, gay and straight, are becoming blurred. Does it matter? Are we free to do with our own bodies whatever we choose to do? Or, do we believe that we were created by God and he has a design and plan for our life?

April 9-10: The Next President (responsibilities of governing) — Ken Hensley

If Jesus were invited to the Oval Office, what would he say? What challenge would he give our next President? Micah 6:6-8: “He has shown you, O mortal, what is good. And what does the Lord require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.” Jesus is neither Democrat or Republican; he is God.

April 16-17: Planned Parenthood (abortion) — Ken Hensley

Does our culture have a high regard for the sanctity of life? Do Christians have a high regard for the sanctity of life? When does life begin? As people of faith, we believe that every person is created in the image of God — including the unborn.

April 23-24: Miley Cyrus (modesty and sensuality) — Rebecca Goodenow

We live in a highly sexualized culture and perhaps no one defines that better than the former Hannah Montana. Unfortunately, many men treat women simply as objects and too many women buy into the myth that they are only as valuable as their looks. This message will address a healthy, biblical perspective on modesty and sexuality.

April 30-May 1: Bill Gates and Warren Buffet (responsibilities of wealth) — Ken Hensley

While none of us are as wealthy as Bill Gates or Warren Buffett, we are still wealthy by most standards. Scripture is clear about the unique responsibilities (and opportunities) given to people of financial means. While avoiding the dangers of greed and selfishness, we should encourage people of means to use their wealth to bless others.
