This Week at JMPC 9.15.19

I am a big fan of Audible books. I have been listening to a book series by Alexander Kane called “Andrea Vernon and the Corporation for Ultrahuman Protection” (CUP). CUP employs superheroes and contracts with communities to provide crime protection. The superheroes are an eclectic bunch with strange and quirky superpowers. One of the superheroes is called “Inspector Well Actually”. His superpower is that he knows just about everything. But he can only provide his vast information in response to someone’s misstatement of facts. If someone misstates a fact, the inspector responds, “Well actually …” and then corrects the misstatement with the genuine facts. One might call his superpower “mansplaining” but he does this to men and women alike. This superpower is helpful but because Inspector Well Actually can’t stop himself, he can be incredibly annoying and often must be banished from casual conversation. Inspector Well Actually is my favorite character.  He comes to mind as I think about our “The Bible Doesn’t Say That” series. It sounds like I am responding to those who say the Bible says something it doesn’t with “Well actually … it doesn’t.” This week we address the common belief that the Bible says, “God hates sinners”. Well actually … it doesn’t. In fact, the Bible says something entirely different. What does it say? Come and hear when Pastor Jeff preaches, “God Hates Sinners? Really?” based on Mark 2: 13-17. If you are a sinner (and who isn’t?) come and get some comfort at 8:30 and 11 at John McMillan Presbyterian Church. We will look forward to seeing you.
