Unanswered: Smoke, Mirrors and God
Is there absolute Truth? If there is, can we know it? The answer to this question is not found in our opinions, nor is it found in religions that contradict one another. Then there is Jesus who says, “I am the way, the truth and the life.”
This study will take you deeper in your faith as it will answer many questions about who you are through the eyes of Jesus, who God is as He defines Himself and what your purpose is in this life. Upon completing “Unanswered”, we expect you to be more informed about Jesus and the Bible, better responders to those who have questions and are in need answers and brighter lights that reflect Jesus by the way you live and love others.
“Unanswered…smoke, mirrors and God” is the result of the partnership of Anchorsaway and Cross Section Ventures. It is a 21-lesson small group study designed for all ages. Each lesson begins with a cutting edge video clip followed by a short study and discussion questions. To go deeper, the Unanswered book that accompanies the study guide can be read.
The title of this project reflects the confusion that many of us have about God. The definition of smoke and mirrors is, “Cover-up: something that is intended to draw attention away from something else that somebody would prefer to remain unnoticed.” (Bing dictionary) It is the intention of this study to free people from religious demands and from performing for God and others in hopes of being “good enough for God”. We think that by working through the entire study, you will get a fresh, perhaps new perspective, as to how God loves and equips us to make a difference in this world beginning with our own families at home, in the church or at the workplace.
