Today we start a new sermon series titled Hot Topics. This series examines six tough topics that people inside and outside the church often think about (even if we don’t ask about them out loud!): If Christians really love Jesus, why is there so much hurt in the church? How can we trust the Bible? What’s the relationship between faith and science? Is abortion wrong? Is Jesus really the only way? Why is there suffering and evil in the world? These are hard questions without easy answers, but Scripture helps us navigate them with wisdom, grace, and intelligence.
Today we look at the problem of hypocrisy. If Christians really love Jesus, why is there so much hurt in the church? Jesus confronted the hypocrisy of religious people and desires that his disciples walk in love. It's only when we stop pretending the church is perfect can we invite Jesus to conform us more and more to his image.
Today we are visited by Kim Paul of the Bridge of the Penn York Churches. The Bridge provides a number of resources to those who are less fortunate, Kim is here to share what they do as they come along side Waverly FBC to help reach the community.
