  • Jesus Anti-Evangelism

    Contributed on Mar 16, 2024
     | 133 views

    In John's Gospel, Jesus does something many people find surprising, that of frequently driving away people who claim to be believers in Him. Today we look in depth at those He drove away in John 8, why He did it, and especially how He did it by claiming to be the Great I AM!

    Our move now through the Lenten Season, and to the cross has a purpose: to confront people to make a decision about what they think about Jesus. The TRUE Jesus. This week, we focus on the foolishness of the cross to those who want to accept Him on their own terms. In 1 Cor 1: 18 The word of the ...read more

    In Jeremiah 29, God, through Jeremiah promises blessing to the people in exile, a promise that often is misunderstood without the context.

    During the Summer, I brought up a verse during a sermon that is usually listed on any top lists of “mis-applied” verses. Afterward, I got into a nice conversation with Gordon Douglas, Pastor Ron’s old comedian friend, who was visiting with us and had recently spoken on how often he sees this verse ...read more

    A brief homily on repentance

    Good EVENING and thank you all for coming out. I really enjoy that our lectionary gives me a lesson, right before the sermon, which seems to question the whole purpose of having an Ash Wednesday service. It really doesn’t, of course. But it is picked to make sure that we work through the idea of ...read more

    Paul's teachings on Love in First Corinthians 13 can be made to sound petty when misunderstood. it is important first to realize Love has a number of different meanings, which is why we need to define all our terms and realize all Love is the same as other Love.

    The Four Loves Good Morning. And as you might have seen by the bulletin cover, this morning we are looking at love and 1 Cor 13, the Love Chapter. And while this is a good reminder for Valentine’s Day, it’s not really about that. Some of you might know this, and I preached about it 3 years ago, ...read more

    2nd Corinthians 11 and the Parable of the Sower both Show us God as the Strength in our Weakness.

    As we look at our lessons today, and I want to look briefly at both, comparing them together, (Glory to God) I’ll begin by sharing an old story some of you may know about a man named Phi-Dipp-adeez. I’d actually be impressed if you knew his name, but you probably know the name Marathon and Nike, ...read more
