Text: Acts 17:16-34 – On this National Back to Church Sunday, Pastor Russ reminds us that, contrary to what many people believe, all religions are NOT alike. Christianity sets itself apart from all others because it not about manipulating the spirit world to get what we want. Rather, it is about God’s plan to restore selfish humanity to have an intimate relationship with him – to restore things to the way he originally intended them to be. His plan however, was a “suicide mission” – he sacrificed his Son, Jesus, who died on the cross in our place, to pay for our sin, so that our relationship with the Father could be restored. Now that’s Good News!
