Discussion Questions:

  1. Watch the video together or invite someone to summarize the topic.
  2. What is your initial reaction to this video? Do you disagree with any of it? What jumped out at you?
  3. Jesus described the fake maturity of the Pharisees in Matthew 23:5-7. Do we still have people like that today? Explain.
  4. Make a list of some of the ways you (or others you know) have defined Christian “maturity” in the past.
  5. What does “trusting Jesus” look like for a new believer? What does it look like for a veteran Christian who is going through a trial? In your own life, when was it hardest for you to trust Jesus?
  6. Many outwardly religious people struggle to honor God privately in their everyday choices. Why do you think that is? Has it ever happened to you?
  7. Articulate the third truth of Foundations. Why do so many veteran Christians fail to make disciples? What do you think Jesus would say to them today?
  8. Write a personal action step based on this conversation.
