The Sermon on the Mount

Sometimes I think that people who don’t believe in Jesus are turned off by what they see in the church.  In this country especially, where we have a “civil religion” that many people call “Christianity” but really isn’t, it’s easy to get confused.

The best way to get around that, of course, is to forget about the church for a while – and learn who Jesus is.  Where did he go?  What did he say?  What did he do?  That’s why I love this video sermon from the Austin Stone‘s Matt Carter: He’s simply standing on the shores of the Sea of Galilee, under the Mount of Beatitudes, and reading Christ’s words from the bible.  No commentary or explanation.  Just Jesus.  It’s remarkable.
