in the one who dashes your babies against the rocks!" and "love your enemies" both be part of the Bible? How is it that "love your enemies," a doctrine so central in Christianity it is widely known by those outside the church, seems to have had so little power to change the world?
In this message, I will explore the seductive attraction of hatred and the challenging teachings of Jesus in light of the real-world events that foster hatred in our lives. It is not message about the rightness or wrongness of war (a very important topic), but focuses on that area where we find Jesus' teachings the most difficult to live out: our own daily lives.
In addition to serving on the faculty of Ozark Christian College, I am also the interim pastor at the Christian Church of Liberal (MO). The message comes from our Advent to Holy Week series of messages through the Gospel of Luke. This sermon was given on Feb 3, 2012.
