Introduction The Butter Battle Book A lot in this book, but where does it start? With a schism over something small. These two groups experience division and it just worsens. A dangerous schism. Churches are not exempt from this, are they. Maybe you were a part of a church that experienced a schism.…
I. THE PAST CONDITION OF THOSE NOW IN CHRIST. First, we once were alienated . to be considered alien v. — to be or become considered foreign and consequently separate from another country or citizenry.

Therefore remember that at one time you Gentiles in the flesh, called “the uncircumcision” by what is called the circumcision, which is made in the flesh by hands— remember that you were at that time separated from Christ, alienated from the commonwealth of Israel and strangers to the covenants of promise,…
Ephesians 2: 11-18 Last week we were able to see that there is nothing that we can do to earn our salvation and we saw that it is only by the Grace of God that we are what we are today. And now that we are one of His we are to walk in His righteousness and work for Him. Now we come to Paul's second paragraph…
Jesus was triumphant over death, sin, demons and Satan. Peter offers this as encouragement to his suffering congregation. Join Pastor Steve in 1 Peter 3:18-22 as he talks about Christ's suffering and triumph and what He died while He was in the tomb.
The Resistance is Real
15 but as he who called you is holy, you also be holy in all your conduct, 16 since it is written, “You shall be holy, for I am holy.” 14 Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? 15 What accord has…

18 Then those also who have fallen asleep in Christ have perished. 19 If in Christ we have hope in this life only, we are of all people most to be pitied. 20 But in fact Christ has been raised from the dead, the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. 32 Two others, who were criminals, were led…
21 Once you were alienated and hostile in your minds expressed in your evil actions. 22 But now he has reconciled you by his physical body through his death, to present you holy, faultless, and blameless before him— 23 if indeed you remain grounded and steadfast in the faith and are not shifted away…
Can we be saved by comparing ourselves to other people? Does it make any sense to justify my life based on how it compares to how other people live their lives?
The Gospel of Luke
Ed Tulloch • Hope City Church Edinburgh • Sermon • • 41 views • 24:42
Jesus cleanses ten lepers who cry out to him, hoping for an end to their separation from other people and from the community of faith - but only one comes back to give him thanks and praise, recognising him as God in the flesh, the source of healing and salvation. Jesus comes to end our separation from God - and if we understand he is the source of that healing, we will overflow with thankfulness towards him.

Church Life By the Book : Building the Home Base
Have you noticed that there is a plethora of churches and religious organizations out there? It can be overwhelming the variety even among those that claim to be based upon the Bible.

It is interesting how every small town has a different culture. Neligh is different than Oakdale, Clearwater, Elgin, or Plainview. Each one is different than the other. We could spend some time and tear apart each culture, explaining how different aspects of those cultures are good or bad. But we won’t,…
