Dead to the Law?

'Ready Answer' by Earl L. Henn (1934-1997)

The effectiveness of a law is found in its purpose and intent rather than the letter. Love and mercy constitute the spiritual fulfillment of the Law.

The Covenants, Grace, and Law (Part 15)

Things written in the Old Testament were written for us. The differences in the covenants focus on justification and access to God, not doing away with the law.

The Covenants, Grace, and Law (Part 19)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

The spirit of the law does not do away with the letter of the law; without the letter, there is no spirit because there is no foundation. Examples show God's will.

Have the Ten Commandments Passed Away?

'Ready Answer' by Earl L. Henn (1934-1997)

Righteousness from Inside-Out

'Ready Answer' by David F. Maas

Many people, even in the church, fail to understand the kind of righteousness God is looking for. David Maas shows that God wants it written on our hearts—not just a set of dos and don'ts or rewards and punishments.

Why We Tithe (Part 2)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh points out that it is much harder to keep the law in the spirit than it is in the letter. Applying the spirit of the law enables us to behave the way God does, putting us on the road to perfection. Tithing grudgingly or with a blemished . . .

Repentance and Righteousness (Part 2)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Richard Ritenbaugh asserts that mechanically keeping the law is only the beginning of righteousness. The broad underlying principles of God's Law are far more stringent than the narrowly stated rules. Principles are broad comprehensive truths covering all . . .

The Bible Does Not Have All the Answers!

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Sermon/Bible Study by John W. Ritenbaugh

The Mystery of Goodness

Sermon by Martin G. Collins

Biblical Principles of Justice (Part Three)

Sermon by Richard T. Ritenbaugh

Though the Old and New Testament are complementary to one another, the emphasis of justice in the New Testament switches from national to personal in scope.

All His Ways Are Just

Feast of Tabernacles Sermon by Martin G. Collins

Martin Collins maintains that justice is more a process of doing (exercising justice, mercy, love, humility and faith — in short, the way of give) in all of our interpersonal relations rather than rendering a stern verdict or sentence. God's justice . . .

Sin (Part 1)

Sermon by John W. Ritenbaugh

What Happened Between the Testaments?

Sermon by Martin G. Collins

The Inter-Testamental period, approximately 400 years between the time of Malachi and Matthew, was a time of intense political and intellectual fermentation.

'Personal' from John W. Ritenbaugh

In the Gospels, questions about the Sabbath center on how to keep it, not whether it should be kept. The way Jesus approached the Sabbath gives us an example.

The Ship Is Yours

Sermon by Mark Schindler

Mark Schindler, reflecting on Michael Abraschoff's book, It's Your Ship, suggests that just as a captain of a ship wants decision-makers, not just order takers, God expects members of His family to be decision-makers. We cannot follow the example of Satan,. . .
