Sermon Clip: Escaping the Twilight Zone God

In this sermon clip from Woodland Hills Church, Greg Boyd discusses how in an episode of the Twilight Zone, a young boy gained omnipotent powers, and people were forced to accept his every decision as good—or else. In the full sermon, Greg shows how many people view God this way, and he opens up another way to view God.

Oh, and if you view the whole sermon, he also discusses how bad theology damages your brain. You don’t want to miss that.

You can view the full sermon as well as other resources by visiting the Woodland Hills Church sermon page.
