iChristian: Basic Christian Philosophy of Life

Introduction

This is a topical series, preached from August 2010-April, 2011, on what Christians believe and do. It describes the norm of a Christian life. Everything is based on the direct words of the Bible, but it is weaved into a consistent philosophy of life. Originally, this is a sermon series for the church. The same notes were used to teach on the TV ministry of Truth for Today, so the 24 (+5) sermons turned into 24 miniseries. Check the first version for main ideas; and check the later one for in-depth expositions. It is a deep and fun series. Enjoy!

3.1. iPray: Pt 1 “Our Father who Art in Heaven” (Matt 6:9-10): Preached on 09/05/2010

The Lord’s Prayer is actually the prayer that the Lord taught the apostles to pray. It has two halves, the first being about God, and the second about ourselves.
