Description

Isn't the main point of Christianity to be a good person (and thereby to secure my place in heaven)? I mean, if one is basically moral, reasonably charitable and occasionally saintly, doesn't that please the Almighty? Is the point to please the Almighty? Come to think of it, what IS the point of Christianity? If one were to boil it all down, what's the message of the gospel? In this episode we take up these questions and arrive at a vision of faith that goes far beyond ethics. The biblical passage referenced in this sermon is:  Ephesians 2:1-10 (NRSV) If you'd like to participate in a virtual worship service at Canvas (Kirk's congregation), they are now available on the Canvas website and Vimeo page.
