The Villains of the Bible

There were some really bad people in the Bible – people who disobeyed God, hurt others, and allowed their hearts to become hardened to anything that was righteous or holy. Believe it or not, there’s a lot we can learn from them! God often teaches us how to live and what to do, but in these cases, He wants to teach us how NOT to live and what NOT to do. Both are just as important. Over the next six weeks, you’ll learn about six people or people groups: Pilate, Judas, Religious Rulers, King Saul, Delilah, and Pharaoh. Some had promising futures, but their selfishness robbed them of the joy of being a part of the movement of God’s Kingdom in this world. Their stories are a sad example of what happens when we trust ourselves rather than God for what’s important in life. You’ll focus less on what they did wrong, and more on how they started well but eventually turned their hearts away from God – and how you can avoid the same from happening to you.
