Craig and LaDonna Smith transfer from the many weeks of presenting their Indigenous Faith teaching materials to an important and related subject matter, the matter of biblical obedience. It was Israel's disobedience that cost them many times and in many ways as they faced the judgement of God for their disobedience. In the next few weeks, Craig presents a message he's titled The Anatomy of Failure, which looks at how Israel fell down the slippery slope to compromise and, yes, to syncretize ultimately with the gods of this world. We don't normally fall away from the Lord in a huge, one time crash, but in small, even tiny increments of disobedience that brings us to intimacy with the enemy of our soul and compromised lives. Please turn your heart to God's Word as Craig Smith once again brings us principles to help us live victorious lives in the context of our tribal cultures, traditions, and religions. Living for Jesus is a totally different way of life, and one lived out best by simple obedience to God's Holy Word. See you next week, dear friend, for part two of this important message.
