As American citizens, we give our allegiance to the flag and to our country. Some people of faith, however, feel that giving allegiance to anything but God is a sin. There is some legitimate textual evidence behind this. The Torah forbids oath taking in Deut 23:23. In the Christian New Testament, Jesus speaks sternly about pledges and oaths (Matt. 5:33-37). What do you think? Can people give their allegiance to both God and country?
Join us for the conversation, 7pm this Thursday at Shorts Brewing, downtown Bellaire.
Sorry I am late getting this out. Tonight's topic for our unTapped conversation will be the question "What is Faith?" Now this may seem like a very obvious and short answer to you, but others will undoubtedly see faith in a very different way. For instance, some people equate faith with a religion. Others, think of faith in terms of their personal spiritual experiences. Is faith possible outside an organized religious/theological tradition?
What is faith and what does faith mean to you? That is the topic tonight at 7:00pm. Join us at Shorts Brewing in downtown Bellaire!
In order to live man must believe in that for which he lives.unTapped is a conversation about faith and spirituality. There are many people frustrated by being forced to think of faith in the same old patterns, and would prefer to explore spirituality in different ways.
