The Religious Wrong

A BT Sermon

In this video I highlight and discuss a statement made by Henry Sardina at Chapel—well, that and the NBA Playoffs (#GoHeat #HeatNation). It is something I have been saying for YEARS and I felt like I was taking crazy pills the entire time (yes, a Zoolander reference). Here is the quote:
"No law of man has ever put true morality into the heart of man."
- Henry Sardina
Specifically, he calls out the mentality of the religious right which believes their number one priority is to legislate morality by prohibiting gay marriage and abortion in this country. Is that really the Christian's number one priority? In fact, he hits the nail on the head when he refocuses the conversation to love. The Christian should show love. Christ did not come to condemn, where do we get the impression that taking up the mantle means condemnation?

So here's the actual quote and my analysis. Skip to the 11-minute-mark for Holy Things discussion. Enjoy! Let me know your thoughts in the comments section.
