Matthew 5 Pt.4 Swearing Oaths, Retaliation, and Loving Your Enemies!

In this message we cover 3 more of the ‘You have heard it said…but I say to you’ statements of Jesus from His “Sermon on The Mount” (Matthew 5:33-48). Are Christians forbidden to swear oaths, or did Jesus mean that we should be known as people of our word? Are we to retaliate “An eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”, or are we to “turn the other cheek”? And are we only to love those that love us, or are we to go the second mile even for those who are our enemies? What did Jesus mean by saying, “Be perfect just as your Father in Heaven is perfect?” Can we expect “perfection” in this life? Lots of this is covered in this message.

There was a problem with the video camera today, so quite a bit of that was lost. However, if you want to try to watch it on Youtube, click on this link!
