Authentic Authority

Acts 19:11-20 | | Series:

What frightens you?  How do we overcome our fears?  We come soon to our fascinating annual national celebration of magic and fear.  Some Christians think of it has harmless, others as harmful.  Is there really a personal force of evil in our world?  We are not afraid of a horned devil with a pitchfork are we?  Is evil real?   In the scriptures we read of encounters with powerful forces in our world.  God gives power to his people to overcome all powers in our world.  As seven sons of Sceva learned, the authority to act with power rests in authenticity.  Counterfeit Christians are of no help to our world at all.  But what if we were real?
