The problem with judgemental moralism – Romans 2:1-16 Sermon

In this passage, Paul takes aim at judgemental moralists. Christians sometimes have a reputation for being judgemental and moralistic, although these days you can find that kind of attitude everywhere. What is the problem with being judgemental, and how can Christians be different?

Do not judge – Matthew 7:1-6 – 16th July 2023

People often take the phrase ‘do not judge’ to mean that we shouldn’t ever criticise anyone else. But that’s not what Jesus intended us to understand. Instead, this is about how we relate to others and deal with sin – especially within the church.

A picture of judgement and salvation – Genesis 6-8 Sermon

Noah and the Flood is one of the most popular and enduring Bible stories for children. But if we see it just as a children’s story, we will miss the fact that it is the most profound picture in the Bible of judgement and salvation through Jesus Christ.

Our King and Judge – Apostle’s Creed #8

The Ascension is probably the most overlooked aspect of Jesus’ time on earth. And yet it is deeply significant! In this session we look at the significance of Jesus’ resurrection – what it means for us, and how he will come again as judge.

When it’s complete, this course will be available on the courses page.

Our King and Judge (Heidelberg 19)

This is another topic most Christians don’t spend enough time thinking about: where is Christ now – and when will we next see him?

There are three questions in this session, focussing on the lines in the Apostles Creed:

he is seated at the right hand of the Father,
and he will come to judge the living and the dead.

The questions are:

  • Why is it added, “and sits at the right hand of God?”
  • How does the glory of Christ our head benefit us?
  • What comfort is it to you that Christ will come to judge the living and the dead?

Where did session 18 go? I posted session 18 up a few months ago as I recorded it on Ascension Day!

If you enjoy this, you can do the whole series right here on the website, or on the app (see links on the right hand side of the page). Alternatively, I am uploading them regularly to YouTube and Facebook. All sessions on YouTube are available on this playlist.

Is the Coronavirus God’s judgement?

I did a Facebook live session tonight thinking about whether the coronavirus is God’s judgement on us. I know it’s a question quite a few people have been asking. It’s a big topic and you’d have to spend hours really going into all the ins and outs, but this is my go at giving an answer live in a few minutes:

The passage I read from is Joel 2:12-14.
