The N Commandments: Judge Not

July 28, 2019

We assume that our sin makes God angry. But Jesus gave us a new reason not to sin, and it's better than fear or guilt.

Did you walk away from church or your faith because of something about the Bible? Were you raised on a version of Christianity that was eventually dismantled by academia or the realities of life? 

Maybe it’s time to consider a version of Christianity that relies on something entirely different...something far more reliable. Maybe you walked away unnecessarily. Maybe it’s time to reconsider Jesus.
