Sermon on the Mount 69

Matthew 7 opens with the famous words, "Judge not, lest ye be judged." Yet, the Bible shows clearly that there is an appropriate form of judgment. Government official, such as courts, must judge. So must the Church. In fact, the lost fact of church discipline requires judgment.

Sermon on the Mount 68

The promises of God's provision and watchful care contained in Matthew 6 apply only to believers as His children, but is it true that all poverty can be traced to human sin? Furthermore, can it be said that children suffer in poverty because of the sins of their parents?

Sermon on the Mount 67

If we are not to worry about tomorrow, how much are we allowed to prepare for it? George Muller's orphanage was run by faith, George Whitefield's was run by appealing to God's people. Which is "right"? Is Christianity a life of principled absolutes, or is it a life of "however God leads you"?

Sermon On The Mount 66

What is the believer's relationship to the past? To worry and be anxious because of the past is no better than doing so for the sake of the future. But, should the believer simply put the past behind him? The past can be a complex question.

Sermon on the Mount 65

"Sufficient to the day is the evil thereof." So said our Savior. These words of Jesus, in one sense, if we may say so reverently, are just common sense. We can do nothing about tomorrow, and today has enough of its own challenges. Where is such common sense today?

Sermon on the Mount 64

It is helpful to think of worry as a person, an entity, or at least a force or power within us. We do not enjoy the feeling of anxiety and worry, yet something within us does not want to stop worrying. We human beings like to be in control, and to stop worrying means to let go.

Sermon On The Mount 63

In Matthew 6:31-33 Jesus gave us three thought to motivate our faith. The first is that we are not to view life as do unbelievers. The second is a focus on God as our Father. The third is the importance of fostering our relationship with God as our heavenly Father. May we all have increasing faith!

Sermon On The Mount 62

What does it take for our faith to increase> What is the relationship between faith and thought? Our thoughts are of great importance and must be based upon the revelation of God's Word and the Holy Spirit's illumination of it to our hearts.

Sermon On The Mount 61

The thoughts we think have a great impact on our lives- including on our faith. Little faith and wrong thinking go hand in hand. In this teaching, Bro. Ian Turner exhorts us to think thoughts that are in keeping with God's truths.

Sermon On The Mount 60

What is the root cause of all our anxiety and worry? Jesus said it is "little" faith. Only believers can have little faith, but what is it? All too often, believers look to Christ for salvation and then progress little from there.
