Name It and Claim It

The title “Half Truths” comes from Rev. Adam Hamilton’s book of the same name — but the sermons are our own here at Oak Grove. We’re talking about things that have a kernel of truth and are rooted in truth, but are used in unhelpful or inaccurate ways in relation to scripture and the life of faith. Many of these statements have become very common in the mainstream Christian language and practice: “God Never Gives you More than you can handle” — “God helps those who help themselves” — “Everything Happens for a Reason” — and this sermon looks at “Name It and Claim It,” the so called “prosperity gospel,” and what it truly means to be “#blessed.”
