For The Record – Scandalized By Thought
Back during the time of Moses, God had given the people an outline of how to live. As any parent knows, when a child can not keep a rule (or may just not want to keep the rule), he begins to figure out a way around it. That’s what God’s people did – they tried to make a ‘work around’ for the various issues in their lives. By the time of Jesus it was a mess. A relationship with God had been rationalized down to a list. If I did these things, God would smile at me. But if I did those other things, then I’d better watch out. So when Jesus started His ministry, He had to speak ‘for the record’ to let us know exactly what God was talking about. Hear Jesus speak For the Record about some of the major topics of our day.
