  • Sermon On The Mount - Part 3 Series

    Contributed by Sam Mccormick on Jun 17, 2019

    Part 3 in a 14-part series of studies I call “The Christian Character” as described by Jesus to a crowd of people on a Galilean hillside as he delivered what is more familiarly known as the “Sermon on the Mount.” In this part we examine the beatitude, “Blessed are those who mourn.”

    based on 4 ratings

    Our society values inclusiveness and acceptance. But sometimes the Bible presents us with a God that divides and separates. James 4:1=12 seems to be one of these passages. Or, is it?

    In our society one of the worst things that can be said of us is, “They are so divisive”. Our society is all about inclusiveness. We are all about acceptance; all about respecting differences; all about making room for all. That is what makes preaching from James 4:1-12 difficult. It is so more
