Church Volume Two Contents Part of a series previously published as That the World May Know, Faith Lessons on the Promised Land focuses on how God put his mark on a people and their land a mark that he has extended through ancient Israel to the faithful today. Video One 1. Innocent Blood Part 1 (Megiddo) When evil dominates society as it did at Megiddo, it's a wake-up call for Christians to fight for righteousness. 2. Innocent Blood Part 2 (Megiddo) 3. Who Is God? (Mount Carmel) In a fiery showdown with the prophets of Baal, Elijah confronted Israel with a choice: 'Whom will you serve?' Today, we must challenge our culture with the same questions. 4. The Wages of Sin (Lachish) What happened at Lachish issues warnings to Christians today. When God's values are ignored by the majority, even the righteous reap the consequences. 5. The Lord is My Shepherd (Negev) The Old Testament portrayal of God as shepherd has been lost in our culture. Rediscover the key to hearing the voice of God that guides us to fulfilled lives. 6. God with Us (Arad) In Old Testament times, God manifested himself in the temple. Today, he dwells in us. We have a responsibility to represent God's presence to a dying world.
