3/11/18 – To Judge or Not to Judge
Have you ever received a summons for jury duty? Whether we want to or not, we are required by law to report to our county courthouse and potentially serve as a juror if selected. But jury duty isn’t the only time we place ourselves in a position to judge others! Judging others seems to come naturally to us all. But Jesus clearly taught, “Judge not, so that you will not be judged” (Matthew 7:1). Does that mean we are to never judge anytime, under any circumstances?
This week’s sermon will examine Jesus’ words from the Sermon on the Mount, specifically Matthew 7:1 – 5. When is judgment sanctioned according to Scripture and when is it not? Why are Christians often known for being judgmental or hypocritical by those outside of the church? This passage in Matthew is perhaps one of the most often known and quoted verses by unbelievers. Why? Perhaps Jesus touched on something worth addressing. This coming Sunday we will! Come join us.
This week we welcome Dan Sarian to our pulpit. Dan is an Elementary Principal at Front Range Christian School. He is married to Rebecca our worship leader. He has two college age daughters, Mariah and Haley. B.S. in Education, Th.M – Dallas Theological Seminary, Master of Arts in Curriculum and Instruction – Colorado Christian University.
