        Listen Again - Christianity vs The New Moral Code

Moralcode.001Today, many Americans are pledging their allegiance to a New Moral Code - one that is free, open, and tolerant to all theology and thought, and is driven by the god of self-fulfillment. If you missed a Sunday or want to listen again visit: St. John Sermons.

The New Moral Code is:

April 30—To find yourself, look within yourself.
May 7—People should not criticize someone else’s life choices.
May 14—To be fulfilled in life, pursue the things you desire the most.
May 21—Enjoying yourself is the highest goal in life.

May 28—People can believe whatever they want as long as those beliefs don’t affect society.

St. John believes that Bible Reading is important, nourishes, and that God’s Word always has effect.  To encourage people to read their Bibles, LCMS has an online Bible Reading Plan for 2017.  Missing a day or two, or even a week, does not mean failure - the idea is to keep reading, as time permits.
