Life Savers

Humanity is drowning - drowning in a sea of illusions, lies, and false beliefs. What we have been told, what we have dreamed up, what we have come to rely on are false pictures of ourselves, others and our relationship to God. Only God can be trusted to reveal what’s really real. His truth statements are like life savers thrown to a world that's adrift and sinking. This series will examine eight such life savers sent to save us.
