Sermon Summary | November 4, 2018
“YOU CAN’T MAKE ME DOUBT HIM” (Luke 7:18-28) OUR PASTOR ULYSSES STEPHEN KING, JR.
I’m sure that most of us here this (Sunday) morning have struggled with doubts. If you seriously contemplate your faith and what it means to follow Jesus Christ the chances are that every once in a while you’re going to come down with some questions, some issues, some uncertainties, some doubts.

The problem is that some Christians leave their doubt untreated because they don’t want to admit they have it. They erroneously think that to be a real Christian, they must have absolute certainty about everything regarding their faith, and so they’re afraid to admit it when doubt starts eating away at them.

Sometimes, doubts are just smokescreens or deflections to hide the real problem. The problem has more to do with “won’t believe” as opposed to “can’t believe.” A lot of people can’t believe because they don’t want to give up certain aspects of their lifestyle.

Normal faith is allowed to question and doubt. Some people think that doubt is unforgivable. Look at Jesus and John the Baptist in our scripture passage this morning. Jesus doesn’t slam John for his doubts. He sends back evidence to bolster John’s faith. Jesus tells John’s disciples, “Go and tell John the things you have seen and heard: that the blind see, the lame walk, the lepers are cleansed, the deaf hear, the dead are raised, the poor have the gospel preached to them” (v. 23). He gives John the greatest compliment in the midst of his doubt. “For I say to you, among those born of women there is not a greater prophet than John the Baptist; but he who is least in the kingdom of God is greater than he” (v. 28). — Notes by USK
Giving Back To God!
Jesus said in Luke 6:38, “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.”

Through your financial gifts, we are able to continue to do the mission of MTC. Continue to celebrate with us as we Matthew 28:19 and support with your financial gifts and offerings. The ministry is also in need of finances to prepare t he church buildings for the winter and rain. More details to be provided on the need, but feel free to g ive securely at   www.memoriatabernacle.org , select the Giving tab, and give as your heart desires. May the Lord multiply your gift and thank you for blessing our ministry.   Give Today!

Mental Wellness: Empowering Churches
Many churches are doing what they must to become informed, connected, and prepared for helping members and the community overcome, manage, and develop their mental health! Here are a list of days and events in which churches can use to bring about awareness and education to remove the stigma and provide resources to those who need them!

Our Church Mission
The Memorial Tabernacle Church has come together by the Holy Spirit for the specific purpose of preaching and teaching the word of God, (the Bible), and about Jesus Christ, God's son, and to proclaim the gospel of the Kingdom of God to the North Oakland Community and its environs; to bring healing to the brokenhearted and deliverance to the oppressed; to be a center of genuine concern for those in need, a sanctuary of community worship that is neither shallow nor restrained, a spiritual home where members find an expression of precious love for one another and a haven for the unsaved.
