Immaturity: A Trojan Horse in the Church

Immorality is not holding back the church as much as immaturity! We all remember the story of how the Spartans could not take the city of Troy by frontal attacks, so they defeated them by deception. They created a giant wooden horse and secretly filled it with warriors. The wooden horse was then given to Troy as an offering to their gods and a symbol of peace. The Trojans pulled the horse into their city and celebrated their victory. During the early hours the Spartan warriors slipped out and defeated the Trojans as they slept.

The Trojan horse in the church, however, is filled not with warriors, but with immaturity. The church is paralyzed by immaturity, and yet allows it to exist, even coddles it and promotes it. Through recognition of this problem, we can find victory. Join this DVD based study group taught by one of the greatest teachers of all times, Pastor Duane Sheriff, to find out how you can overcome the weakness of spiritual and mental immaturity.
