    Does the one talent slave deserve another whipping? He did hide the master’s talent. But why did he hide it? Fear cripples. So God is going to work through the Gentiles now. Take that Pharisees.

    WHIPPING THE SLAVE AGAIN TEXT: MATTHEW 25:14-30 THEME: AN FALSE VIEW OF GOD CAUSES A LACK OF SERVICE. Should we give the one talent slave in Matthew 25:14-30 another whipping?

    This sermon is from an Exchanged-life perspective and sets out to communicate God’s view of you that makes you worthy with a hope that the hearer will come to a more healthy sense of self-acceptance and love.

    For the past couple of weeks I’ve sought to communicate God’s view of you with a hope that you’d come to a more healthy sense of self-love and self-acceptance.

    based on 406 ratings
     | 70,832 views

    What, then, do the parables teach? Church fathers such as Irenaeus and Augustine identified the treasure and the Pearl with Christ. The recent convert to Christianity says exactly the same thing: "I found Christ." Yes, it seems like we did find Christ.

    In his series of seven parables in Chapter 13, Matthew is quite elaborate ....... on the first two, providing an interpretation for each. The other five are shorter and more pointed in content. The parables of the hidden treasure and of the pearl consists of two sentences each. And in ...read more

    No act of faith or obedience, whether great or small, whether seen or unseen, will go unrewarded.

    This morning, I’d like to address a simple question: Is it worth it? Is the payoff worth the cost, is the potential reward worth the risk?
