  • But  there  was  a  man  named  Simon,  who  had   previously  prac7ced  magic  in  the  city  and   amazed  the  people  of  Samaria,  saying  that  he   himself  was  somebody  great.  They  all  paid   a>en7on  to  him,  from  the  least  to  the  greatest,   saying,  “This  man  is  the  power  of  God  that  is   called  Great.”  And  they  paid  a>en7on  to  him   because  for  a  long  7me  he  had  amazed  them   with  his  magic.    
  • But  when  they  believed  Philip  as  he  preached   good  news  about  the  kingdom  of  God  and  the   name  of  Jesus  Christ,  they  were  bap7zed,  both   men  and  women.  Even  Simon  himself  believed,   and  aHer  being  bap7zed  he  con7nued  with   Philip.  And  seeing  signs  and  great  miracles   performed,  he  was  amazed.   Acts  8:9-­‐13  (ESV)  
  • I.  People  Pursue  POWER    
  • I.  People  Pursue  POWER     II.  Power  without  Truth  Is  Dangerous    
  • For  we  do  not  wrestle  against  flesh  and  blood,   but  against  the  rulers,  against  the  authori7es,   against  the  cosmic  powers  over  this  present   darkness,  against  the  spiritual  forces  of  evil  in   the  heavenly  places.   Ephesians  6:12  (ESV)  
  • I.  People  Pursue  POWER     II.  Power  without  Truth  Is  Dangerous     III.  God’s  Truth  is  Real  Power!  
  • But  when  they  believed  Philip  as  he  preached   good  news  about  the  kingdom  of  God  and  the   name  of  Jesus  Christ,  they  were  bap7zed,  both   men  and  women.  Even  Simon  himself  believed,   and  aHer  being  bap7zed  he  con7nued  with   Philip.  And  seeing  signs  and  great  miracles   performed,  he  was  amazed.   Acts  8:12-­‐13  (ESV)  
  • Philip  went  down  to  the  city  of  Samaria  and   proclaimed  to  them  the  Christ.  And  the  crowds   with  one  accord  paid  a>en7on  to  what  was   being  said  by  Philip  when  they  heard  him  and   saw  the  signs  that  he  did.  For  unclean  spirits,   crying  out  with  a  loud  voice,  came  out  of  many   who  had  them,  and  many  who  were  paralyzed   or  lame  were  healed.  So  there  was  much  joy  in   that  city.   Acts  8:5-­‐8  (ESV)
