Pastor Greg Laurie points out that idols are anything or anyone that takes our focus off of God. And we'll see the Lord recognizes the danger and mentions it in His 10 Commandments.

My Statement on the Attempted Assassination of Former President Trump

On Saturday night, July 13, the unthinkable occurred. An assassination attempt was made on the 45th President of the United States as he spoke at a rally in Pennsylvania. Thankfully, the assailant was stopped, but not before he had discharged several rounds from his vantage point on a nearby roof, claiming one life and critically injuring two others. One of the bullets grazed the ear of Donald Trump, and it was nothing short of miraculous that he survived as the bullet passed mere millimeters from a fatal impact. The Secret Service swiftly secured the stage, and as President Trump was escorted to his car, he pumped a fist in the air, exclaiming “Fight!”—a gesture to reassure America of his well-being.

Living Like First Century Believers

First Century Church as Our Example As this world gets darker, we must ask ourselves the question, “Which side am I on?” If I’m on the Lord’s side, it’s time to stop “playing Church” and time to get serious! The Church of the first century “turned their world upside down” for Christ. As we read about the work of the Holy Spirit through the Apostles in the Book of Acts, it seems that wherever Paul and the others went, something happened—either a conversion or a riot. It was said of Paul and Silas (and not as a compliment): “These who have turned the world upside down. . .”
