  • Simplicity Versus Complexity

    Contributed by Glenn Pease on Mar 13, 2021

    We need to see that the primary problem of the Pharisees was that they were too religious. Some people go bad because of their vices, and others because of their virtues.

    Human nature loves to magnify the minute and give significance to the insignificant by the simple method of stretching the truth. An army cook, for example, feed a mob of men with scrambled eggs, and then he sat down and wrote to his girl friend: "Dearest, for two hours shells have been more

  • So Help Me God

    Contributed by John Williams Iii on Aug 14, 2020

    This sermon is about honesty and oaths. (from May 5, 2013).

    SO HELP ME GOD Text: Matthew 5:33 – 37 I once heard a comedian tell a joke that had a rhetorical question. If you were a lawyer, his joke may or may not have been funny depending on whether or not the given lawyer or lawyers had a sense of humor. His joke went like this: “How can you tell more

  • Christian Challenge Sermon V: Make Or Break Situations Series

    Contributed by Charles Cunningham on Jul 15, 2020

  • Getting Life Right: Promises Series

    Contributed by Vic Folkert on May 18, 2020

    Life is built on promises. Every word a Christian speaks represents God, whether we take an oath in his name or simply make a promise.

    Getting Life Right: PROMISES—Matthew 5:33-37 “You promised.” There’s something about that! There is something about a child being able to trust a parent’s promises, a husband or wife trusting every commitment made, or being able to count on people at work to do what promise to do. LIFE IS BUILT more

  • Never Surrender Your Authenticity

    Contributed by Rian Adams on Apr 6, 2020

    Jesus says let "yes" be yes and "no" be no. Righteousness must exceed the Pharisees. They surrendered their authenticity to appear more religious. This sermon is an encouragement to live in the opposite manner.

    Never Surrender Your Authenticity Counterfeiters make over a billion dollars a year, making fake designer clothes and handbags. That billion is from the United States, not the rest of the world. These are not cheap knock offs from street vendors; they are well-made fakes. There's an more

    This Old Testament account of King David leads us to consider the temptations that we face and the holy life Jesus calls us to live in his Sermon on the Mount in Matthew 5:21-37.

    “How did this happen?” Have you ever read or heard a news story that just left you with that thought? “How did this happen?” I think that there were quite a few people that felt that way last Sunday afternoon as the heard the news of the 41 yar-old basketball superstar, Kobe Bryant’s death. more

    Contributed by I. G. Spong on Feb 10, 2020

    Imagine a commentary on the Old Testament by Jesus Christ. It would be the best, and we have one in the Sermon on the Mount. Let’s begin to understand the intent of the law by its author. Let’s look at murder, adultery and bearing false witness in Matthew 5:21-37.

    Entering into the spirit of what is behind the Law.

    METAPHORS OF MORTIFICATION. Matthew 5:27-42. Sometimes the Sermon on the Mount has been the called the new Law. This is not necessarily helpful. We are not under law, but under grace (cf. Romans 6:14). 1. When Jesus says, “But I say unto you,” He is entering into the spirit of what more

  • Sixth Sunday In Ordinary Time - 6th Sunday, Year A

    Contributed by Paul Andrew on Jan 20, 2020

    Jesus builds a shield around the law or Commandments in order to create more space and distance so that we won’t even bump up against the fence or sit on the fence, but rather keep a healthy distance.

    There was a large group of people. On one side of the group stood a man, Jesus. On the other side of the group stood Satan. Separating them, running through the group, was a fence. The scene set, both Jesus and Satan began calling to the people in the group and, one by one - each having made up more
