That's where it turns a bitter brew. "He hath no form or comeliness," Isaiah says. "No beauty that we should desire him. A man of sorrows we despise." Christ minds us to be good, to feed his sheep, take up our cross and follow him with Hell's hot fires if we fail. All this and more our Savior bids when he becomes a man, and to a man we sayhim nay. Thus when the Bishop tenders me with his own hands Christ's flesh and blood, I slobber them with tears.

Are you trying to make people grow?

The Rev. Margaret Marcuson (ABCUSA)

our efforts to make people change often produce the opposite effect. It’s counterproductive to be willful. Here's another way to approach the process of change at church.

Mature Theology (A Sermon on Jude 1:1-7)

The Rev. James Ellis, III (CBF)

For whatever reasons, Jude is one of those biblical texts you will be hard-pressed to find being preached that often in many churches. Its message is difficult to receive and digest, although the message is rather plain and direct. No one wants to hear doom and gloom and especially within the privileged, spoiled brand of faith that has become popularized in America, no one wants to hear any notion of God’s stand for sexual morality. But there it is in the Bible waiting for us to confront our sin.
