Series: Living in a Messed Up World

Pete Briscoe

No one likes being told what to think. So we shouldn't be surprised when quarrels erupt over issues like environmentalism, immigration, or health care reform. It's easy to find yourself in a heated discussion that only leads to strained and broken relationships. In Matthew 10:16, we're told to be "shrewd as snakes and as innocent as doves" as we interact with the world. But what does that look like in practical terms?

In this message, Pete presents a model for thinking through issues like these so you can decide what decisions to make—or what positions to take—concerning today's hot topics.

Scripture: 2 Timothy 2:23 - 2:26 , Matthew 10:16 - 10:20
