Sermons on Romans 14
How can a church hold together when some of its members are so different from one another?
We don't have a deep sense of peace and fulfillment when we have successfully deluded everybody about who we really are or what we really feel or think. There is a deep (and I believe God-given) longing to be authentic, not to be hypocrites.
There are a hundred things we can disagree on in which both convictions can be done to the glory of God.
Setting apart a day of rest testifies to a self-reliant world that our work does not save or define us, Christ does.
The ultimate goal of the church is to reflect and display the glory and worth of God. Missions is a means, not an end.
Love your brother and help him get to heaven, instead of judging him and making it harder.

Anything, absolutely any act or attitude which is owing to a lack of trust in God is sin, no matter how moral it may appear to men. God looks on the heart.
