April 3, 2016 - Matthew 12 & 15 - Doing Legal vs. Doing Good

Matthew 12:1-14 & 15:1-20

What things do others think are sins which you think aren’t?


What things do you think are sins which others think aren’t?


How should you react to or interact with another person if you find out you that the two of you don’t agree about what is a sin and what isn’t?


Are there any religious rules you used to think were very important but which now you think aren’t at all?


Did you grow up thinking God is just waiting for any reason to punish you?  How would that thinking affect a person’s relationship with God?


Is there any way to accurately measure whether or not somebody is a “good” Christian?  Why do you think we

feel a need to do that?


How do you please God?
