At the Crossroads: Liberty or Tyranny

I was blessed to be able to be apart of organizing, as well as, attend the 31st Rocky Mountain Biblical Worldview Conference last weekend. I left encouraged in my faith, strengthened in my walk with Christ, challenged in my life, and having learned so much. At this conference, Nationally renowned authors, speakers, and leaders Kevin Swanson and Israel Wayne joined local teaching elder, author and speaker David Barrett to spend all weekend addressing many Christians along the theme: “At the Crossroads: Liberty or Tyranny”.

Although, I cannot even try to begin to express all that was taught, I would like to share with you all my favorite quotes and tidbits from the sessions I was able to attend. Hopefully they will stimulate thought and encourage you as they have done to me!

We are at a crossroads right now in history, which road will you choose? Liberty in Christ or Tyranny from men?

But even unto this day, when Moses is read, the veil is upon their heart. Nevertheless when it shall turn to the Lord, the veil shall be taken away. Now the Lord is that Spirit: and where the Spirit of the Lord is, there is liberty.
II Corinthians 3:15-17 (KJV)


  1. Thanks for sharing those, Justin! :) I was really inspired by them. My favorite is "The distinct thing about the Christian religion is that God does not stand and look at us from the outside, but rather comes alongside us -Israel Wayne" love that! So true, and really easy for me to forget.

    1. I am very glad they inspired you! Yes, it is so easy to forget, but yet so true:)
