  • Can‘t You Read The Sign!? Mark 3: 1-6

    Contributed by James Lee on Nov 21, 2013
    based on 1 rating
     | 6,455 views

    A number of times, the religionists had attacked Jesus, accusing Him of teaching a false religion. I guess they often wondered… “Hey Jesus! Can’t You read the sign!? We have rule against that kind of stuff!” In Mark chapter three we see yet another confrontation.

    While thinking about this message I was reminded of a song from my hippy days… And the sign said "Long-haired freaky people need not apply" So I tucked my hair up under my hat and I went in to ask him why He said "You look like a fine upstanding young man, I think you'll do" So I took ...read more

  • Sabbath Liberation

    The folly of hedging the Sabbath with man-made rules

    SABBATH LIBERATION Our attitudes to the Sabbath can tell a lot about our Christianity. In Luke 13:10-17, the president of the synagogue obviously felt it was more important to keep the Sabbath, even in the minutiae of man-made rules, than to look after his parishioners: "There are six days on ...read more

     | 3,774 views

    How God tells you to live is infinitely more important than how others think you should live! This is what Pharisees couldn't grasp. The challenge for us also is: Do not get a big head about it and become arrogant and/or unteachable.

    Sin … It’s a Heart Problem! Mark 7:8-23, 1 John 1:8-10 Introduction - Jesus is demonstrated in this book as a “servant” -- Key verse: Mark 10:45, “For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for ...read more

    Jesus confronted the traditions of men in order to point men to the direction of God.

    1. Mark 2.13-3.6 2. We cheer when we see Jesus confront the Pharisees and cast out the money changing Sadducees 3. We support his stand against men using their traditions to speak for God (Mark 7.6ff) 4. But wait, the religious leaders of Jesus' day aren't the only ones to fall into this trap. . ...read more

  • Thank God.

    The Bible isn’t a list of rules. The Bible is a relationship waiting to happen. You need Jesus. And Jesus isn’t going to leave you because you mess up

  • A Time To Dance

    Contributed by I. G. Spong on Aug 17, 2015
     | 1,495 views

    Is it okay for Christians to dance? Are rules against dancing just silly man-made rules or are they right? If dancing is okay, what kind of dancing would be right?

    the Christian Church has a long history of making up rules that are not in the Bible. Is this right? Is dancing biblical or forbidden? What is the answer? Jesus criticized the Pharisees for making up religious rules that are not in the Bible. One example of this among Christians is the topic of ...read more

  • The Separation Principle Series

    based on 57 ratings
     | 20,050 views

    Not every path will take you where you need to go. But how do you know what the "right" path is when there are so many choices?

    OPEN: In the classic children’s book “Alice in Wonderland,” Alice comes to a junction in the road that leads off in different directions and seeing the Cheshire Cat she asks him for advice: “Would you tell me please, which way I ought to go from here?” “That depends a good deal on where you ...read more

    based on 43 ratings
     | 1,530 views

    Do not let other people squeeze you into their mold through man made rules, regulations and restrictions. Paul wrote, "It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery."

    Biblical solutions for the problems people face with personal freedoms? Illustration: Dr. Henry Cloud’s most popular book Boundaries, teaches Christian how they can successfully set up borders that will shield them from being overwhelmed by abusive people, difficult circumstances or personal ...read more

     | 3,107 views

    Contributed by I. G. Spong on Jun 25, 2018
     | 424 views

    What if we are greatly mistaken in our understanding of Christianity? If our ideas do not square with the Bible, will we change? As the Holy Spirit leads us into all truth, will we follow?

    Preamble After preaching the lectionary through in these churches, I find myself drawn more and more to a year of preaching the texts the lectionary leaves out. My suspicions were aroused when I learned that Jude was eliminated, a letter which condemns many practices engaged in by the modern ...read more

  • Are You Loving Others Or Judging Others? Series

    Contributed by Jonathan Mcleod on Oct 19, 2006
    based on 9 ratings
     | 4,648 views

    If we think we can live the Christian life by following rules and forgetting about loving others, we have missed the point. The Christian life can be summed up in one word: love.

    “Therefore do not let anyone judge you by what you eat or drink, or with regard to a religious festival, a New Moon celebration or a Sabbath day. These are a shadow of the things that were to come; the reality, however, is found in Christ” (Col. 2:16-17). Background I. God does not want you ...read more

    ‘We believe that salvation is for everyone who calls on the name of the Lord.’
