• Christianity is fundamentally different from every other religion. One of those differences is where we get the power to live out our faith. Other religions lay out a pathway or framework for knowing God and being accepted by him. But, the responsibility is on those people to find a way to follow that pathway with the hopes of doing enough to be accepted by God.


  • This week’s passage flows directly from last week’s passage. Jesus is continuing to show us that adherence to outward traditions and rituals cannot change us, only a new heart can do that.


  • But what about those other parts of the Bible? You know those “God kills everyone” parts. Like the Flood story. Or Saul being commanded to kill all of the Amalekites. Or Joshua’s conquest of Canaan.
