Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “Part-time Christians” based on Matthew 23:23-28

  • Jesus condemns people who try to obey the smallest part of the law but ignore the import stuff.
  • Jesus says the important stuff is justice (fairness), mercy/compassion, and faithfulness.
  • We too often only “act” like Christians when it is convenient for us.
  • We need to realize we have been bought with a price.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “The Christian Life: Stewardship” based on Mark 12:41-44:

  • Tithing is a command of the law of the Old Covenant.
  • There is no way Christians can biblically tithe today.
  • What we call tithing today is merely giving 10%.
  • God does not call us to tithe.
  • He calls us to give sacrificially.
  • He calls us to give faithfully.
  • He calls us to trust Him to meet our needs.
  • To require someone to tithe is nothing more than modern-day pharisee-ism and legalism.

Here are some “sound bites” from Sunday morning’s message, “A Matter of Trust” based on Mark 12:41-44:

  • Tithing is an Old Testament concept
  • Tithing is not commanded in the New Testament
  • Tithing is a concept under the law
  • The New Testament model of giving is based on grace
  • The concept of tithing is abused and mis-guided in the church today
  • 10% is a good place to start, but Jesus demands everything
  • If you can’t trust God with your finances, how can you trust Him with to save your soul?
  • If God isn’t Lord over your money, He probably isn’t Lord over your heart either.

  • Holiness IS conforming to the character of God and being obedient to the will of God.
  • Holiness is a commitment to a changed life.
  • Holiness is being in the Word and talking back to God through prayer.
  • Holiness is an attitude.
