You can’t stand on quicksand [Sermon]

We live our lives based on what we think is true.

For example, if I think it’s true that it’s going to rain, then I’m going to grab an umbrella when I head outside. But if I don’t, I won’t.

If I think it’s true that my child is about to get hit by a car, then I’m going to quickly pull him to safety. But if I don’t, I won’t.

But in an age of information overload, it can be hard to figure out what is true. Another complicating factor is the idea we sometimes hear that “it’s all relative.”

If we’re swamped with information, and if it’s all supposed to be relative, how in the world are we supposed to discern truth, and then live wisely as a result?

In this sermon from June 21, 2020 I explore these very questions through the lens of Matthew 7:13-29—the closing section of the Sermon on the Mount.

One thing’s for sure. You can’t stand on quicksand.
