Do you like to argue? Some of us love it. Many of us became experts at arguing when we were teenagers. Evidently Jesus’ disciples loved to argue with the Scribes and Pharisees because Jesus asks, “What are you arguing about with them?” This is a great question for the climate in which we live today. But in the same scripture there is a God given command that tells us how to deal with the arguing that surrounds us.
Three times the Disciples of Jesus argue about who is the greatest. Can you imagine that? These disciples watch Jesus minister to the least, the last and the lost but they still are concerned with their pecking order in the followers of Jesus. Jesus overhears their arguments and gives them some advice.
Some are skeptical that marriages can last. Younger generations are wary of entering into a long term commitment that might tie them to someone for too long. But there are examples of all around us that show a marriage can last a lifetime. In this message Pastor Fred will point out some ways that a marriage can last.
The Apostle Paul told women they should submit to their husbands. And sometimes this thought has been used as a way to gain power in a relationship. This is far from what Paul intended. So what if submitting doesn’t mean what you think it means
The Pharisees and scribes think they have found a time when Jesus is breaking the Hebrew law. So they call Jesus to account for his actions only to find that their actions are much worse. Their actions are so bad that Jesus calls them hypocrites. How do we avoid being hypocrites? Pastor Fred Steinberg will explore the one thing that will help.
