The resurrection of Jesus is THE event of all history. Believe it, or reject it if you dare. But it affects your NOW and your FUTURE.

What makes Jesus different than any other religious leader? Are all religions equal?

Does the Light work? Does it win? It might just surprise you…

Also, we look at possible meanings of a key word in this verse, how the meaning changes, and why we choose a particular meaning.

Does walking in the light mean that we have the freedom to sin as we please? Not in the least! Sin is a HUGE issue with God, and it is only by Jesus’ ongoing effects of His payment on the cross for us that insure and secure our relationship with God.

Part of walking in the light is having a proper response to SINS – what we do that we shouldn’t do, or what we don’t do that we should. We examine a very often-quoted verse (1 John 1:9) in light of its context, and find out that many have this verse ALL WRONG. The verse does not tell a believer to ask for forgiveness or say that he/she is sorry for his/her sins. It also is not a “get out of sin card” that believers are to be using as the fix-all for personal sins.
