What’s the point of ‘being religious’? – Romans 3:1-20 Sermon

Last week we saw that what God really cares about is the heart, rather than outward things – as the Jews of Paul’s day were saying. In this sermon, Paul turns to answer an objection: what, then, is the value of being religious at all? What was the point of being Jewish? If all that matters is the heart, what’s the point of any of our religious observance?

The disintegration of godless society – Romans 1:18-32 Sermon

What is the problem with the world today? In this sermon, we look at Paul’s hard-hitting explanation of the root problem from Romans 1. The fundamental problem is ‘men have forgotten God’ – they turn away from him. God then gives us over to our sinful desires, which leads to the decay and degradation of society.
