Have you ever met a mean Christian? I bet you have. Shouldn’t a mean Christian be an oxymoron? The problem is misplaced priorities. Jesus knew this as he tried to redirect our attention away from rules and regulations to more important matters.
There are many commandments and rules found throughout the Bible. Jesus even introduced a few more commands to the hundreds found in the Old Testament. Why does Christianity have rules? Are they necessary? Do they symbolize something? In this message we will take a close look at how the rules and commandments bring us into relationship with God and each other.
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.
