    Contributed by Larry Turner on Nov 19, 2014
     | 3,769 views

    An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth seemed rather fair but Jesus had a better, more difficult way to settle things.

    As some of you remembered back in May, four weeks before my very first cruise, I fell at the local Y injuring my shoulder. What followed was accident reports being filed, doctor visits, ex-rays, MRIs, and the diagnosis of shoulder surgery. Looking on the internet I was discovering the cost was to ...read more

  • "It's Time To Flip The Script”

    Contributed by Bryan Beverly on Feb 17, 2015
     | 6,862 views

    This message reminds us that Christ wants us to emphasize giving vis-a-vis taking. The Lex Talionis (Exodus 21:18-36, Leviticus 24:17-21 and Deuteronomy 19:15-21) said 'Don't take too much". But Jesus' message (Luke 6:27-29) was "Don't give too little".

    38“You have heard that it was said, ‘An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth.’ 39 But I say to you, Do not resist an evildoer. But if anyone strikes you on the right cheek, turn the other also; 40 and if anyone wants to sue you and take your coat, give your cloak as well; 41 and ...read more

    Most people love only when it benefits them or meets their needs. Even though it is forbidden by God to hate another person, to nurse a grudge or to seek vengance, an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth” was the rule of the day, Jesus calls us to love

    How often do we practice what Jesus preached?

    Practice What He Preached First of all, let’s suppose that you’re a Jew walking down a street in Jerusalem, & you see some folks gathered over here talking politics.

     | 3,820 views

    Two truths that Jesus shared. 1. Do Good to Please God. ( Matthew 6: 1-4.) Give without letting others know. 2. Love Your Enemies. (Matthew 5: 38-42) Its actually a really hard thing what Jesus expects of us as Christians. It is hard to be a Christian.

    There is a series of teaching that Jesus did while preaching to crowds in the countryside that begins in Matthew chapter 5 and goes to chapter 7. He was preaching on a wide range of subjects and had a way of opening up the scriptures for all to understand. But he also added to the scripture by ...read more

    It is easy to love people of your own kind, but the Lord calls us beyond that.

    Two men were on a cruise ship together and began to talk. Finally one of them asked, “Do you believe in God?" He said, "Yes." I asked, "Are you a Christian or a Jew?" He said, "A Christian." I said, "Me, too! Protestant or Catholic?" He said, "Protestant." I said, "Me, too! What ...read more

  • A Word Concerning Confrontation Series

    Contributed by Christopher Benfield on Dec 1, 2021
     | 680 views

    Most of us have, at some point, desired to get even with those who have wronged us. There is something within our human nature that desires to “return the favor.” These attitudes are contrary to God's will for our lives.

    A Word Concerning Confrontation Matthew 5: 38-42 As we continue our study in the Sermon on the Mount, we come to a passage that we all have heard a portion of quoted many times in our lives: An eye for an eye, and a tooth for a tooth.

  • "Sharing Our Wealth"

    Contributed by David Henderson on Dec 22, 2015
     | 1,652 views

    The apostle Paul had something to say about that in a letter he wrote to a young preacher named Timothy. He told Timothy that we should be content with what God has given us. Happiness. Contentment.

    "Sharing Our Wealth" Be content with what God has given you and share his blessings with others. Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:6-8 6 Yet true godliness with contentment is itself great wealth. 7 After all, we brought nothing with us when we came into the world, and we can’t take anything with ...read more

    Just like the Pharisees, so many are concerned with outward appearances but Jesus teaches us that we need to be concerned with matters of the heart and that once the heart is under control, outward appearances as well as our actions will take care of them

    I. INTRODUCTION A.

    When we take God’s justice into our own hands it is easy to become more concerned with our revnge than God’s righteousness.

    Genesis 34 February 8, 2004 I feel that I should almost begin this message with one of those little announcements one sees on television all too often these days.

    Israel was called to imitate God and so are we. Jesus achieved it, and he is in the process of making us perfect so that we will be like him.

    I read a story this week (by Bishop Tom Wright) about a Father who was preparing to go away on business for several weeks. He was anxious to make sure that his wife would be looked after during his time away and so he had a quiet word with his eldest son who was about 9 years old at the time. ...read more
