Love My Enemies?

00:0000:00

The next teaching from the Sermon on the Mount camands Christ's disciples to defy a basic human instinct to defend one's honor. Jesus requires his followers to subject their pride, even in the most difficult times. Reining in our pride is more important than protecting our honor.

To Tell the Truth

00:0000:00

Jesus says to let your yes mean yes and your no mean no. Discpiles are to be people of the Word and people whose word is trustworthy. In this message Pastor Dan also explains some critical issues in the United Methodist Church and his viewpoint.

The Nicene Creed

Anger and Lust

00:0000:00

The author of The Law interpreted it to those who had twisted it for their own gain. Jesus taught that all persons are of sacred worth to God.

The Nicene Creed

00:0000:00

This week we will move from the Beatitudes to Jesus’s statements about how our blessed life affects the world. What if those who revile and persecute you also benefit from, or are even saved because of you? What is salt that loses its saltiness? While would anyone put a light under a bushel basket?

The Nicene Creed

The Blessed Life

00:0000:00

Pastor Dan will dive deeper into the heart of Jesus’s opening statement at the Sermon on the Mount. We’ll see that that the Beatitudes, which means “the blessings,” are not a list of virtues, but seven character traits of Christ and His disciples. In an age, when good character is in short supply among our leaders it is all the more necessary that we dedicate ourselves to the imitation of Christ and conformity to His character.
