Shattering Sentimentalism, Shattering Secularism
Topic: secularism Verse: Ecclesiastes 1:1–1:2, Ecclesiastes 12:8–12:13
Pastor Art Azurdia begins a new series titled, "In Search Of Meaning" preaching through the Old Testament book of Ecclesiastes.
It has been said that the book of Ecclesiastes is the most contemporary book in all the Bible. It is the burden of this book to show where real meaning is found in a fallen world. This reveals sentimental Christianity for what it is, a half-truth, and an illusion. This book also seeks to shatter secularism as an option, because every rabid pursuit apart from God at the center will always lead to the same place, it will end in despair. We will see that fearing God is the context in which all of life finds real meaning.
