One group says the Bible is a book about love, mercy, and kindness. They think of the story of the Good Samaritan and of Jesus telling us to turn the other cheek. So how could anyone think the Bible prevents a tolerant society? But for another group, the Bible is far from tolerant. There’s the conquest of Canaan. There’s Elijah killing Baal’s prophets by his own hand. And in the New Testament, Jesus talks often about hell. That’s not tolerant. What then can we say in answer to this question?

The Bible says that we reap what we have sown. It really will not work out as someone once joked: We spend six days sowing our wild oats and then go to church and pray for crop failure.

One of the devil's great tactics is to get God's people arguing about things that don't really matter. We need to keep the main thing the main thing!

Paul says that a grace-filled community is restorative; a legalistic community judges people. We can only have a healthy community once the gospel is fully established.

When a politician promises something, we don't expect much. But when God promises us heaven, do we begin to live with the spirit of heaven in us?

Our task to learn how to have joy and love and all of the fruits of the Spirit is of great significance so that we can avoid having a fake religion, saying one thing and doing another. We want to live in a way that is authentic.
