Sermons about Pharisee
A full day of teaching . . . questions, parables, and WOES!
Following Christ does not mean we need to follow a legalistic twelve step program of salvation. The Gospel cleanses our hearts, removes our burdens, and unlocks the answers to scripture, while religion becomes a test of man's ability to be 'good enough.' If you want to find assurance of God's Grace in your life, then turn to the pages of the Gospel, and listen to the words of Christ, His truth shall set you free!
Jesus says that the greatest commandment is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, mind, and soul and love our neighbor as ourselves. Is that even possible? How can we do it? More importantly, why?
Beneath the behaviors of the Pharisee lies a heart of self-righteousness. That self-righteousness is what led them to crucify Jesus, and it is at the heart of much of the contention between churches and gay people. How does the Gospel alter the interaction among people on this issue?
What is blasphemy of the Spirit? What is the work of the Holy Spirit?
In a continuation of the previous message on positioning one's self for special favor, this teaching elaborates on the characteristics of pride versus humility.
Who gets access to the Kingdom of God? Jesus presses home in this narrative the truth that self-righteousness and contempt of others are two sides to the same coin.
What makes a man right with God? Listen as Jesus rejects the modern notion that more religious activity equals more righteousness. We'll see Gospel humility demonstrated through a seven-word prayer that lead to life from death.
