Do you know anyone who dislikes Christians because they’re too judgmental? When people do and say things that seem questionable, even to themselves, there is often a sheepish expression and then a declaration, “Don’t judge me!” How should disciples respond to an impulse to judge others? Can anyone really excuse his / her behavior just by saying, “don’t judge me”? The final message in our Sermon on the Mount series will seek answers to these and other questions.

God or Mammon?
