Sermons about Hypocrite
People often view the church as being judgmental and hypocritical. However, Jesus denounces both in Luke 6 and calls His followers to live with integrity by following His word and deeds.
A warning from Jesus not to be a hypocrite or a pretender.
Among other things it has been used to justify going to war, racism, misogyny, slavery, homosexuality, and even disbelief in God. What is it you might ask? The Bible. Yet people have also submitted to the Bible and became peacemakers, had their marriages restored, sold all they had and gave it away to the poor, chosen to forgive the most heinous offenses, and chosen a life of service. What is the difference?
What is acceptable in worship and what is not?
The instruction to pray is simple to understand, but not easy to live.
We all have a tendency to be hypocritical don't we? The longer we are in church the easier it is to start creating a list of does and don'ts that can be a mile long and almost impossible to keep. We might just have something in common with the people that Jesus talks to in Matthew 23. Today we will discover why Jesus is greater than religion.
Religion. It breeds self-righteousness and intolerance. It uses guilt and shame to control people. It's what is wrong with the world. And Jesus hates it. For the message of religion—"I obey, therefore I'm accepted"—is the opposite of the gospel: "I'm accepted in Jesus, therefore I obey." Join us this fall as we explore why Jesus hates religion in all of its forms. ____________ The 3rd sermon in the "Jesus Hates Religion" Series at Remnant Church in Richmond, Virginia.
