We begin a new sermon series on Sunday 11th January, on the Ten Commandments:
- Are they still relevant for today though?
- Don’t they need updating?
J John once said ‘According to social and economic trends our country is in deep decline. We are being confronted with a rise in crime, in family breakdown, debt and drug abuse. We live in a generation that has lost its fixed compass. It’s lost its anchor. The Ten Commandments are only like the embossed numerals on the dial of every person’s conscience. They are not made for any particular period in history. They were based for human nature and therefore were commandments for all seasons, all centuries, for all cultures, as universal and perpetual as honour and truth…
God himself is the source of the Ten Commandments and because the basis of the Ten Commandments is God – THEY WORK’
So over the next few weeks (interspersed with a mini monthly series Wally will be running alongside on ‘Jesus through the Bible from beginning to end’) we’ll be taking a look at how we might apply these principles to the real life situations we face day by day.
