Violence and the Gospel

From the sermon series, “Don’t Go There”

Sermon text: Luke 22:35–38

     And he said to them, “When I sent you out with no moneybag or knapsack or sandals, did you lack anything?” They said, “Nothing.” He said to them, “But now let the one who has a moneybag take it, and likewise a knapsack. And let the one who has no sword sell his cloak and buy one. For I tell you that this Scripture must be fulfilled in me: ‘And he was numbered with the transgressors.’ For what is written about me has its fulfillment.” And they said, “Look, Lord, here are two swords.” And he said to them, “It is enough.”

There are six things that the LORD hates,

a heart that devises wicked plans,
     feet that make haste to run to evil,
a false witness who breathes out lies,
     and one who sows discord among brothers.

Sexual Identity and the Gospel

From the sermon series, “Don’t Go There”

Sermon text: Genesis 1:27

Or do you not know that the unrighteous will not inherit the kingdom of God? Do not be deceived: neither the sexually immoral, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor men who practice homosexuality, nor thieves, nor the greedy, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor swindlers will inherit the kingdom of God. And such were some of you. But you were washed, you were sanctified, you were justified in the name of the Lord Jesus Christ and by the Spirit of our God.
