NOTE:  At the end of the sermon there are two songs from our praise team led by Micah Williams and Danna Beale if you would like to listen.  I.  Being Filled II.

It's time that we confront the truth that we face liars and lies every minute of every day.  Only the truth found in the teachings of Christ can set us free.  Thanks so Michael Liesure for working with me on the skit that opens the message!
