Stone Churches And God's Sanctuary

Sermon of Sunday, November 15, 2009

Preacher: Francis Noordanus

Scriptures: Mark 13:1-8 & Hebrews 10:11-25


Christianity celebrates God's outreach to humanity.  Meanwhile humanity has since time began been concerned with where, how and through whom people can meet God.  Under this influence many places on earth have become considered as sacred and certain people deemed essential for people to meet with God and offer aceptable worship.  This was the case in Jesus' day when religion was running strong.  Jesus gave some clear indications that he did not believe this was his Father's desire and often actually represented a distortion of what God intended. 

This sermon examines some of Jesus' words about the Temple and its demise as a house of God made of stone by human hands.  The Epistle to the Hebrews is then read to learn how Jesus himself answered the where, how and through whom question as a new and living way to God.
