Because knowing Christ at a distance won't do.
Just in case you didn't know it wouldn't work, he'll tell you. How to deal with a total downer.
Because you must deal with people and you must get some sleep.
How do you recognize the signs of manipulation and end it? Manipulators turn people into puppets.
Suicide is more common than we think. No one is immune from these fatal thoughts. There is help, but we need to start talking about one of life's most tragic mistakes.
As preachers of the gospel we should be powerful and prepared.

Manipulation Man from Brian Branam on Vimeo.
If manipulation were a super power, could you identify the man behind its mask? Probably not. Manipulation is subtle, deceptive, and cunning. It turns people into puppets. The ultimate danger is when the people of God don't know the difference between being manipulated by man or being led by the Spirit of God.
Dealing with Suicide from Brian Branam on Vimeo.
It has always been God's plan to give you life, but it has always been Satan's plan to take it away. Who are you going to believe?
This sermon also includes an interview with a trained counselor and a pastor/father who lost his son to suicide.

Great, But No Good from Brian Branam on Vimeo.
What if you, or even your church, did a lot of great things, but in the end, they did no good? Compromise and cowardice will not take you far. Yes, there may be a few shining moments of success, but they will eventually dull like old trophies in a case. The story of Gideon should challenge us to make our impact last. We must be responsive, courageous, and dedicated to the challenge God sets before us or else we may just be forgotten. What good is that?
