Love Is Lawful

Matthew 12.9-14
May 14th 2017

In an effort to accuse Jesus, the religious leaders find themselves condemned again by their own self-righteousness. "Is it lawful to do good on the Sabbath?" What sort of question is that?

Never Anything Like This

Matthew 9.32-34
Nov 27th 2016

Tradition Or Truth

Matthew 5.21-48

Theologically Blind

John 9.13-23
Sep 12th 2010

Can you think of a reason to celebrate? I don't know... turning 40? 15th anniversary? "Cubs win! Cubs win! Cubs win!"?

No doubt there are lots of reasons to party, but few as noteworthy as the Sabbath day celebration that should have been...

No One to Condemn?

John 7.53-8.11
Jul 11th 2010

Imagine getting caught in your worst sin... then being paraded up to front row of the church for al to see. There is no doubt of your guilt, no hope for an acquittal: you're guilty and you know, as does everyone else.

It is at this juncture in your life that...read >>
