You will not believe this. Please put down the brick. John Chis-ham got it right!

 John Chis ham does not preach a 1/2 bad sermon. He really should listen to it a few times.

John is your typical “Fire and Brimstone” type preacher in a sense. His intensity is pretty off the hook. If emergents spread their views with this much vigor, there might not be as much hurt in this world. Maybe a few more kids would be alive. But lets move on, Shall we?

His preaching topic is that Christians do not have to become Jews to become Christians. They have no need to follow the old Jewish  laws, one being circumcision, to follow Christ. He makes reference to the Pharisees  who  demanded the old laws be followed as well as the modifications they came up with. All in the name of doing more pleasing works for God.

The problem is, neither John or Paul could make up their mind. Because in different conversations, both Paul and John Chis ham continue to follow and preach the old law. At the same time preaching the new.

I don’t think you can have it both ways. But somehow John and Paul think we can.

So John, listen to your sermon.  Be blessed. Who knows, your heart might be in the right place. It could happen!
