Counter Culture from the Sermon on the Mount

Counter Culture from the Sermon on the Mount

Found in Matthew 5-7, ‘The Sermon on the Mount’ contains some of the most radical teaching that Jesus ever gave. Much of it is extremely counter-intuitive and commanding us to live in a completely different way to the surrounding world. It is when the church lives in this way, however, that Christianity becomes dynamic, exciting and life changing rather than dull and conventional. As we explore the Sermon during this series, our prayer will be that God will use it to make us into a more radical, faithful and life-changing community.
