Sunday 14 October – 9:30am
The Ten Commandments forbid saying things that are not true; or do they? The 8th commandment is often summarized as “you shall not lie,” but it actually reads, “you shall not bear false witness against your neighbour.” This wording is significant. It implies something broader then just telling facts or lies. Even the “truth” can be used to bear false witness against someone. We are called to heed our thoughts and our words, making sure that they are not only factually correct, but that they bear witness to the true goodness of character of the people around us.
For 3 Sundays in October we’re having sermons about repenting from various sins. To really engage with this work in your own life we highly recommend that you use the worksheets from the Begin a New Life program.
