Denouncing Judge Dredd.png

Judge Dredd is a fictional comic book character who enforces the law as judge, jury, and executioner in a dystopian future. Dredd says, "I AM THE LAW!" Unfortunately, if we're honest, we sometimes act this way toward our neighbors. But Jesus taught us not to judge people. Listen as Pastor David shares how judging others reveals our own emptiness, and how we are called to embrace an identity that engenders a deep love for our neighbor.

It's so easy for us to assume we know why people do what they do and then be quick to judge others or treat them unfairly. But Jesus said to take the log out of your own eye before trying to remove the speck out of someone else's eye. What does Jesus mean? Listen as our guest speaker, Bruce Webb, shares his insights and personal stories into how he is learning to treat others in a way that makes for peace and builds healthy relationships.
