Did you ever wonder who the anti-Christ is? What if I told you that there really isn't a single anti-Christ, but that the devil has filled the world with countless anti-Jesuses? What if I promised I could teach you the seven sure-fire ways to spot this counterfeit savior in a sermon, a bible study or a crowd? What if I said I could show you that these seven classic fake saviors are all just spices trying to flavor the same old boring dish of "Lie"? What if I painted a picture of a Cowardly Warrior,an Educated Harlot, a Tyrant Scientist, a Party-Girl Churchlady, a Prince of Salesmen, and a Grandma turned werewolf strapped onto an operating table and shoved full of fool's silver? If you put it all together, you'd have all the ways the Devil tries to make your faith in Christianity Broken rolled into one weekend event, not to mention a glimpse of the antidote to it all. (Here's a hint: it's the real Jesus!)
Rev. Jonathan Fisk, Associate Pastor at Bethany Lutheran Church in Naperville, IL will be leading the retreat through his soon-to-be-released-book from Concordia Publishing House, Broken: 7 "Christian" Rules that Every Christian Ought to Break as Often as Possible.
