SERIES: Hunting Giants
MESSAGE: The Giant of Religion
SPEAKER: Skip Heitzig

Religion might not seem like a giant to overcome unless you’re an atheist. But did you know the source of much persecution and oppression around the world is religious groups? The prophets, the apostles, the early church, and even Jesus Himself all had run-ins with religious leaders and formalized religious systems. Some of you come from a very religious background but now enjoy the freedom of a relationship with God through Jesus. How does one successfully stand up to religious pressure while impacting it with the gospel? Let’s see how Stephen did it.


  1. He Was Spiritually Equipped (Acts 6:3, 5, 8-10)

  2. He Was Scripturally Adept (Acts 7:1-50)

  3. He Was Skillfully Direct (Acts 7:51-53)

  4. He Had Sacrificial Respect (Acts 7:54-60)

Keywords: the gospel, heaven, Israel, Old Testament, relationship, religion, respect, salvation, self-righteousness, truth
