  • Flesh And Spirit And Cleverness For The Gospel

    Contributed by W Pat Cunningham on Jul 7, 2013
     | 2,951 views

    We must listen to the Spirit of God rather than our weak minds and wills so that we can bear the fruits of the Spirit and with cleverness spread God's kingdom.

    Today’s Scripture readings offer a number of challenges and difficulties to the Christian. On the face of it, it appears that Jesus is applauding a dishonest steward’s actions in cheating his employer. Worse, He seems to be telling His disciples that the ends justify the means. Of ...read more

  • Render To Caesar What Is Caesar's

    Contributed by Revd. Martin Dale on Oct 20, 2014
    based on 1 rating
     | 7,444 views

    Seemingly a Catch 22 position, yet Jesus wonderfully side steps the controversary. By using the Gk word "apodote" Jesus challenges us even today: "The coin bore Caesar's image: give it back to him. You bear God's image: so give yourself back to Him."

    Sermon: Render to Caesar what is Caesars’s Story: A man came to an Anglican Church and asked to see the Vicar. “Vicar,” he said, “My dog died and I would like a Christian burial for him.” The Vicar said, “I’m sorry to hear about your dog, but we ...read more

    based on 153 ratings
     | 10,800 views

    Jesus uses a clever crook as an example of God’s investment strategy.

     | 3,177 views

    He was clever, manipulative, maybe even ingenius, but he was wrong and it cost him so much, think of how he miscalulated the situation.

    TEXT Act 1:25 INTRO: Can you really calculate the odds? Can you really know what is in your future? Can a person really implement their plans to the fullest when they don’t know the future? I submit to you that Judas was a man who thought he had life under control and he had his future going ...read more

  • Handling Money

    Contributed by John Lowe on Jan 7, 2014
     | 1,681 views

    The first commandment of the world is “self-preservation”. A shady business deal is winked at, questionable practices tolerated, and a clever crook is highly praised by the world. The law is on the side of the crook and the criminal many times.

    12-20-04 Title: Handling Money Text: “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” (Luke 16:13) Bible Reading: Luke ...read more
