[Thought questions for Christ's Death and the Law May 7, 2014]

Intro. Are you like me in that you dread reading or hearing about how cruel people were to the kindest Being in the universe? If Jesus had gone around beating people up and knocking them around, that would be one thing, but did He ever do anything that wasn’t an expression of love? Love for all? Love all the time? Was there ever a more gentle Person than Jesus? Why, oh why [...]

Why do you think most people worship on Sunday? Why don’t they [...]
