Twsited: The Video

No, the video itself isn't twisted - its just the introduction played before each of the Twisted series of sermons.

Twisted: Love and Lust - 1 John 3:16-20

If there is one amazing gift that God has given us, it is love. But, not the idea of love that we have become so accustomed to. God's love is more than just romantic feelings or a strong desire or the devotion of Romeo and Juliet. God's love is sacrifice, it thinks of others before self in many ways it is contrary to what we know as love. Of course God's greatest gift is the adversary's greatest weapon.
  • Love means Sacrifice
    • v16 - This is how we know what love is: Jesus Christ laid down his life for us. And we ought to lay down our lives for our brothers
  • Real Love is Physical
    • v18 - Dear children, let us not love with words or tongue but with actions and in truth.
  • Real Love is not Risky - It Removes Risk
    • v20 - For God is greater than our hearts, and he knows everything
