Merciful, Blameless, and Pure

Sermon on 2 Samuel 22:26-34 (Psalm 18:25-33), for the 9th Sunday after Trinity, about how God is merciful, blameless, and pure, and wants us to reflect these qualities in our life, and why God appears "torturous" to the crooked. How does this fit into David's own life? How did he make his way "crooked" and find God to be "torturous"? How does God rescue us from crooked paths and crooked hearts? Who is, and where can you find a "blameless man" or "upright hero?"

True Disciples Know the True Christ

Sermon on Matthew 7:15-23, for the 8th Sunday after Trinity, about false prophets and their deceptions. How does this piece of the Sermon on the Mount fit into the bigger picture, as the "exit" of the sermon? What are the dangers and pitfalls that surround discipleship? How does a false prophet reveal himself? How do disciples learn to know the true Christ, so as not to be taken in by frauds and imposters? Who will enter the kingdom of heaven, and how?
