scriptures: 1 John 3:11-18, Genesis 4, Matthew 5:21-26, Matthew 25:31-46
To live our lives as if "we are not our brother's keeper" is the way of Cain, and we can not allow our minds to buy into that lie. The church exists not just for itself, but in order that it can be a flesh and blood example in our modern world of what the love of Jesus Christ actually looks like.
It is a scary place to be when the non-religious world begins sounding more like Jesus than the church does, and yet in some ways that is exactly what has happened over the last few years.
We need to be transforming more and more into the image of Christ every day, not sacrificing it on the altar of self preservation.
Especially in a sermon as loaded as this one, you may have questions. If so, please submit them by clicking the "ask questions" image and we will try our best to respond to them to the best of our ability.
The below book is one of many recordings of the ways the Christians responded to the plagues mentioned in the sermon.
