Welcome Scripture Reading ( Leviticus 19:9-18 ) This passage was chosen for two primary reasons: (1) Our passage in James actually quotes from this passage and (2) Vs. 15-16 , talks about the same sin that James refers to. This passage is God telling Moses what to tell the Israelites about God’s law—God,…

We are in a difficult time in our nation. We are just coming out of a pandemic where over 100,000 Americans have died.

Why is it so essential that we know and follow truth?After all, if what we believe is not true, but seems to be working out okay for us, what would it really matter?
Last week I suggested that the Christian Community is the ultimate enemy of racism. I believe this to be so. Not because of the institution itself or because of some type of political power it may wield. Not because of its raw theology or teaching. Not because of its impact on architecture or the arts. Not because of any other of a host of possible reasons, but because of the power and motivation behind, beneath and before the Church of Jesus. The true power of Christianity comes only from the Love of Christ. When we get this right, we can fulfill the work of both the Body of Christ and our own personal work within the greater movement of the Kingdom. On this day of Love, let’s be once more reminded of what our God teaches us about what true love should be. CCLI Streaming icense CSPL085064

Life. How we define, preserve, protect and value life is often, in my opinion, directly related to how well we have understood God and His Word to us. On the other hand, this subject as with all other similarly important ones is decided very differently when we have no anchor of absolute truth to which we moor our lives to. If the truth we follow is, in fact, centered on us and our own preservation/comfort/convenience/economics, then the direction we take in regards to abortion, euthanasia, or in fact simply how we value any other human will result in the rank ordering of our affections and treatment for people.
