    In Matthew 7:1, Jesus commands that we "Judge not". In John 7:24, He commands us to "Judge righteous judgment". Our Lord was not confused. There is no contradiction here, just much misunderstanding about the difference between judging righteous judgment and the terrible sin of judgmentalism. Every Christian needs to know the difference.
     
    Pastor Ray will be sharing the message, "Judgment on Judgmentalism" Saturday at 5 p.m. Celebration Church meets at Oak Hill Assembly of God, 5200 Franklin Pike, Nashville, TN 37220. We invite you to join us!

    J U D G E  N O T !

    Jesus said, "Judge not, lest ye be judged". And it is the most misunderstood command in the Bible. The world is quoting it to the church to shame us into silence. The church is quoting it to itself to make sure we are politically correct. What a mess.
     
    Please join us this week for Pastor Ray's compelling message about what Jesus meant, (and what He did not mean), when He gave us this amazing commandment. This message is so relevant to our modern times that it would be a good one to invite your friends and neighbors to come and hear!

    Understanding fasting as presented in scripture can either be a distasteful or delightful experience! Jesus spoke of a "bridal fast" that brings breakthrough and answers to long-standing prayers.

    C.S. Lewis once said, "We all agree that forgiveness is a wonderful idea, until we have to practice it."  
    In this week's message, "The Power of Forgiveness", Pastor Ray will show how forgiveness is more than a wonderful idea, it is a requirement of the normal Christian life.

    Asking God to "Give us this day our daily bread" has to be one of the most familiar prayer requests in human history. But so few who pray this prayer have a full understanding of what Jesus had in mind when He taught it!

    We hope you can be with us this weekend as Pastor Ray presents some fresh prophetic insight on what it means to ask the Father for "Our Daily Bread".

    What does the Lord tell us to pray for first in all our prayers?
    The answer to all of the above is: The Kingdom of God!
    So why is it so many of God's people haven't got a clue? We hope you can join us this weekend for Pastor Ray's provocative message, "Thy Kingdom Come", and find out why this one thing changes every thing.

    Derek Prince, one of the greatest Bible teachers of the last generation, once pointed out that "It is the Fatherhood of God that makes Christianity different from all other religions". How right he was. Yet how often do we fail to see Jesus' emphasis on the importance of truly knowing God as Father?
     
    We hope you can be with us this week as Pastor Ray continues our studies in the Sermon on the Mount with an inspirational message on what it means to be a child of God the Father.

    While almost everyone can recite the "Lord's Prayer" word for word, very few realize that the first two words of this famous prayer are the key to unlocking the power of the whole thing.

    What does a book written by a retired Lutheran minister in 1929, and 2 Hollywood movies from the book in 1935 and 1954, have in common with Jesus' words in the Sermon on the Mount preached in 32 A.D.?

    The 3 greatest roadblocks to my living the normal Christian life are "me", "myself" and "I".
     
    In this week's teaching from the Sermon on the Mount, we will find out why the overcoming life we long to live in Christ lies on the other side of our death to the demands of a tyrant named "self".

    The urge to retaliate or strike back at those who offend us comes natural to human beings. But why? Jesus gets to the heart of the matter this week when we consider the spiritual meaning behind such well-known sayings as "eye for an eye, tooth for tooth" and Jesus teaching to "turn the other check".

    Jesus' hard line about the sanctity of marriage and the only acceptable grounds for divorce and remarriage offended the Pharisees and flustered His own disciples. How much more of a bombshell will it be for modern ears? 
     
    We continue in our verse-by-verse study of the Sermon on the Mount with this relevant and much needed message from Matthew 5:31-32

    It would be hard to find anyone among us who has actually broken God's commandment that says, "Thou shalt not kill".  But it would be equally hard to find anyone among us who has not had to deal with the inner attitude of anger, which according to Jesus, is the root of all murder. 
     
    This week, Pastor Ray will continue our studies from the Sermon on the Mount with an eye-opening look at what Jesus had to say about the problem of anger and how He commands us to deal with it.

    The Jews of Jesus' day mishandled God's Law and commandments the same way some Christians do to this day; they were caught up in the 
    letter of the Law and misunderstood its spiritual
     nature.  
     
    In this week's message, Pastor Ray will introduce one of the most important sections of the Sermon on the Mount, (Matthew 5:21-48), where the Lord Jesus interprets Old Testament Law for New Testament believers.
