Luke 4:14-30 There are many times in life when we are faced with tough decisions; these become the defining moments of our lives. In the sermon Truth or Consequences Pastor Coon challenges us with being truthful, suffering the consequences, and how those decisions will define us.

The author makes it clear that we Christ offers a great salvation and there are consequences for neglecting it, and we are all in danger of drifting from it.
