SERMON INFO
What does the Bible have to say about what the Christian faith actually is? Is Christianity the headlong pursuit of getting people to ask Jesus into their hearts during an altar call? Is Christianity power living? Is it a matter of figuring out the secret of the Spirit-filled or Spirit-led life? Is it being a good-deed doer? Is it immersing oneself in church programs? Is it a matter of losing your personality and becoming timid and compliant beyond all recognition? Is it being a republican? Is it becoming monk-like and denying all worldly pleasures? Is it wearing religious jewelry or putting a fish on the bumper of my car? Must I quit dancing and drinking and laughing and become a teetotaler with no rhythm or sense of humor? If you think the essence, or heart, of the Christian faith is any of this, you need a good dose of remedial Christianity.

“ Great Sermon! Great Teaching ”
Great teaching! I thank God that you provided a PDF for listeners to read. This helps us follow the theme of the Bible as well as understand what the individuals books are about. I love hearing you as well. Thank you. Thank you. Thank you for your kindness and you contribution. This is a good way of routing and grounding us in the faith.

“ A Wonderful teaching Series ... ”
This is Part 1 of a SUPERB 4 part series in which Paul Viggiano shares much-needed teaching concerning: "Remedial Christianity." Some exceptional food for the mind ... and soul! Viggiano is as sharp as a surgeon's scalpel in his dissecting the inherent fallacies of ALL philosopies -- even Science! -- and competing religious systems which oppose the ONLY TRUTH which can NOT be logically shown to be false: Christianity as revealed through God's Holy Word, the Bible. Great stuff! I highly recommend the ENTIRE 4-part Series. Take your MIND to the gym!
