Can We Judge? – Matthew 7:1-5

“Do Not Judge, Lest You Be Judge,” (Matthew 7:1) is perhaps one of the best known, and definitely one of the most misunderstood passages of Scripture today. Our lesson this morning focuses on looking at this verse in a wider context, and working to understand what the Bible really says about judging.

Judge Not (podcast episode 35)

Today we continue our study of the Sermon of the Mount with a look at Matthew 7:1-6, which is probably one of the most popular passages in the Bible, the favorite, “judge not!” passage.  Let’s study the Word of God together to find out what this really means.

Lord, Teach Us To Pray (podcast episode 30)

In the Sermon on the Mount, Jesus spends a great amount of time compared to other sections talking about the topic of prayer.  He first teaches his disciples how not to pray, followed by a model prayer that we can use as an example even today, 2000 years later.  Please grab a Bible and join me for this study from Matthew 6:5-15.

Look At Me! (podcast episode 28)

As we continue to study the Sermon on the Mount, we take a look at a larger section of the Sermon today, looking at Jesus’ teaching on doing righteous acts to be seen by others in Matthew 6:1-18.  We take a quick look at alms giving, prayer, and fasting as acts of righteousness that must be done with the proper motive if we are to receive the reward that only God can give us.

Love Your Enemies (podcast episode 26)

Lesson Text: Matthew 5:43-48

Personal Vengeance and Retaliation (podcast)

It’s is natural for humans to want to get back at those who treat us badly.  We learn that as children on the playground.  If he pushed me first, I should get to push him back.  Like he does in so many of his teachings though, Jesus teaches us to go against our human nature and seek the better way, living up to a higher standard that He has set for us.

Don’t Be Angry With Your Brother (podcast)

In teaching about a better law, Jesus confirmed what the Law of Moses taught, that it was a sin to murder, but Jesus, as he often does in his teachings, requires his followers to take things a step further.  Not only should we not kill, but we shouldn’t even let ourselves become angry with our brother to the point of sin.  Join me as we study the Bible together and try to understand what this means for Christians living today.
