Let’s Reduce Your Expectations for Christianity

When we become a Christian, the Bible uses language that says we’re adopted by God the Father . . . into his family. And what do we know about being part of a family? They annoy us, we annoy them, and we love and serve each other. That’s family. That’s fellowship. Welcome to the church. This clip is excerpted from the sermon “Jesus Gave Us Communion,” part 7 of our current sermon series, Jesus Loves His Church. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released online on August 5. Watch the full sermon here: jesus.to

Should christians JUDGE????…YES!!!

I prove this through biblical scriptures. Per Illbehonest.com One of the most misused verses in all of the bible is Matthew 7:1, about judging not, lest you be judged. - So many people will quote it and say it to confront people about their salvation and sin in their life. Is it biblical for Christians to pronounce judgment? Is our cultures present understanding of Matthew 7 truly biblical? Tim Conway answers an Ask Pastor Tim question and responds with the scriptures

Former Pastor John Loftus on Christianity

Luke Muehlhauser: commonsenseatheism.com John Loftus: I was a Christian apologist with several master’s degrees set for the express purpose of defending Christianity from intellectual attacks. I was not afraid of any idea, because I was convinced that Christianity was true and could withstand all attacks. I have taught both apologetical and philosophical classes for a few different Christian and secular colleges. I was in the “Who’s Who Among America’s Best Teachers” in 1996. I knew most of the arguments against Christianity, and as a philosophy instructor in a secular college I could debate both sides of most any argument. As a philosophy instructor, in many ways, I am a purveyor of doubt. Too many people have a superficial faith handed down from their parents. As a teacher my goal is to cause them to doubt much of what they believe, be it atheist or believer, or in between. Doing so is what’s needed for them to develop a deeper faith, and it allows them to see points of view they’ve never considered before, thus making them more tolerant of other people’s beliefs. One thing that I must do as a philosophy instructor is to eliminate from my students a smug, simplistic, and dogmatic belief system. Such beliefs are childlike and unbecoming of the adults they should become. Anyway, I have told people time and time again that I could teach philosophy until I was blue in the face so long as I knew I had a loving, caring, and faithful Christian community to fall back on after

Christianity Starts with a Sermon

Church is what happens when the Bible is preached, the Holy Spirit comes, and people are connected to Jesus. The result is a bunch of people called Christians who are on mission together as the family of God, the church. Paul’s sermon in Acts 2 begins literally with Jesus. It starts and ends with, is all and only and always about Jesus—and he will be proclaimed, by the grace of God, through the power of the Holy Spirit, at Mars Hill Church forever. This clip is excerpted from the sermon “Jesus Gives Life,” part 1 of our new summer sermon series, Jesus Loves His Church. It was preached by Pastor Mark Driscoll out of Acts 1:1–11 and 2:22–41 at Mars Hill Downtown Bellevue and released online on June 24.
