Mark 2:21-3:5

Humanism is decried by some today as an enemy of Christian faith, but the truth is that Jesus’ teaching was profoundly humanistic. He was prepared, in fact, to set aside anything—even cherished religious beliefs and customs—that stood in the way of human good. Opposition to humanism may well be one of the best ways available today to reject the values about which Jesus cared the most. Listen to the sermon. Read the sermon in PDF.
