Jesus Christ vs. Religion
DD95 Jeremiah--Part 2: Last Warnings Before Destruction
The people of Israel under Josiah's reign had a new enthusiasm for God. Church and worship were popular and all the right things were being said. Everything "looked" right but the people themselves were not right. The Heart of Sin within individuals had not changed. Jeremiah was to be the country's last warning before destruction.
DD108-Do you love God? or Are you Just Religious?
Certainly God loves the praise and worship of His people. But, we'll soon see that man likes "to do his own thing" while appeasing God at the same time. So, the real question for us to be honest about is this: do you love God? or are you just religious?
DD136- The Way to Truth - Matthew 11: 12-27
If you have ever met a "know it all" you quickly learn that they don't know it all. You'll discover the two deadly sins that keep "know it alls" from the truth and the one virtue needed by all of us to find the truth.
DD145-A Clean Heart and How We Get It - Matthew 15:1-20
Are you making yourself sick? You act one way before men but inside you know there is impurity, wrong motives, bad thinking and pride -- all of which you have continually tried to keep hidden. If you are at this point and long for the holiness that God wants for you then this study will clarify what a clean heart is and how you can have one.
DD150- Jesus, Is He Your Personal Discovery? - Matthew 16: 13-23
The end was very near now for Jesus and he was confronting a problem. Was there anyone who recognized him for who he really was? If there was, then his work could safely move on. If not, Christianity would die with him. This study is much more than Jesus dealing with his twelve disciples. It extends right down to us today.
DD165- The Wrong Idea About Religion - Matthew 19: 16-22
What is it that can block eternal life even for a person apparently doing all the right things? This study focuses on a young man, who like many of us, had the wrong idea about religion and finds himself coming up short.
DD173 - Are You Bearing Fruit For God? - Matthew 21: 18-19
When Jesus curses a fig tree for not having any fruit on it he raises the question for all of his disciples, both then and now, as to whether we are producing fruit for God? Without God's fruit we are barren people and like the fruitless fig tree - good for nothing.
DD179 - Christ's Warnings For the Jews and the Gentiles - Matthew 23: 1-39
The Jewish leaders who had tried to trick Jesus in his own words had failed. Now, the Lord turns to the crowds and his disciples and gives them some very definite instruction concerning these leaders. It's as applicable today as it was then.
