Gospel of Matthew
Gospel of MatthewSteve Gregg

Steve Gregg explains the textual meaning of Matthew 5:21-30 in part one of his sermon regarding The Sermon on The Mount. He emphasizes the importance of avoiding sin in order to enter the Kingdom of God, as Jesus warned that even minor infractions can lead to dire consequences. Gregg also stresses that proclaiming oneself Christian and attending church alone is not enough without complete obedience to Jesus Christ in all aspects of life, a point reiterated by Jesus in the Sermon on The Mount. Finally, Gregg reminds listeners that only genuine repentance for sins can lead to salvation through the cleansing power of Jesus.
