"You shall know the truth, and the truth shall set you free." Jn 1: 5 John's Gospel is all about Truth. He mentions the concept 23 times (and 20 more times in his epistles). There's a reason for that: John knew he was writing to a world that was caught in the grip of a lie! And that makes his writings so relevant today, because our generation is still caught in the grip! An Introduction to the Gospel of John. Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA Beginning of his series on the Gospel of John: Truth for a World in the Grip of a Lie

2 Cor 13: 7-14 "Only entropy comes easy," (collapse) one of Chekhov's characters observes. How true! It takes force and fortitude to build things up, and almost nothing at all to tear things down. And, as Christians, you and I are committed to 'building up'. Paul certainly was. Let's learn how to do it this morning. Message by Pastor Rod Schorr. Final in the series on 2 Corinthians: You the Ultimate Survivor

"Let Truth and Falsehood grapple," dear old John Milton once claimed, "the Truth will never be put to the worse." Yes, it is good for Truth to be tested at times; and never is that truer than in the life of the Christian! He is supposed to be 'tested' and 'proven'. In fact, he must 'test' and 'prove' himself!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange CA From his series on 2 Corinthians: You, The Ultimate Survivor

"I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls..." 2 Cor 12: 14 I love Charles Spurgeon's advice to his students on the subject of winning souls: "Do not enter this ministry if you can help it. If any student in this room could be content to be a newspaper editor, or a grocer, or a farmer, or a doctor, or a lawyer or a senator, or a king, in the name of heaven and earth let him go his way, his is not the man God has chosen." Oh yes! The soul-winner! A profession more kingly than kingship itself. And the great news is that you, dear Christian, already qualify! Let's take a look...

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." 2 Cor 12:9 ESV How thoroughly "unDarwinian" is the Christian! His Scriptures teach the "survival of the weakest", not the "fittest"; and that, with every wound, scar or infirmity, God's strength is perfected, God's strength prevails! No one understood this better than Paul. But this morning, let's make sure we learn it too!

"...labors...imprisonments...and countless beatings... stoned... shipwrecked... adrift at sea..." 2 Cor 11: 23-27 There are times in life, when trials are intense, that survival alone is glory! Never has that been truer than with the Christian. He shines like a star when he perseveres, even through the worst of adversities. Paul was the ultimate example of this: the ultimate survivor. You need to be one too!  Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange, CA From his series: 2 Corinthians: You the Ultimate Survivor

"For you put up with fools gladly, since you yourselves are wise." 2 Cor 11: 19 NKJV False teachers and self-appointed "apostles" were taking over the church at Corinth. They came teaching heresies, distorting the Gospel, causing division and slandering the existing leadership. If left unchecked, they would run that church right into the ground. And the Christians at Corinth were just "putting up with it". How sad! Let's learn from this today...

"If someone comes and preaches a Jesus other than the Jesus we preached..." 2 Cor 11: 4 "Oh what a goodly outside falsehood has," one of Shakespeare's characters complains. How surprising to find that observation way back in Shakespeare's day. But Paul observed it even in his day! This is the age-old battle for the Truth, where falsehood comes disguised as 'goodness' and 'light'. Let's take a look.

"When the measure themselves by themselves and compare themselves among themselves, they are not wise." 2 Cor 10:12 It is probably the greatest source of unhappiness today: "comparing". We measure our happiness, we evaluate our lives, we base our self-esteem on comparison with others. Worse yet, we use comparison to make excuses for our sins. Our Scripture this morning labels it bluntly: "unwise"!  Let's take a look... Message by Pastor Rod Schorr, Calvary Chapel Old Towne, Orange From his series: 2 Corinthians: You The Ultimate Survivor
