In this sermon based on Matthew 7:1-5 Pastor John Wesley points out that “The Bible does not teach tolerance, “when it comes to truth” it teaches scrutiny. In the book of Acts the church at Berea was commended for searching the scriptures to see if they were being taught the truth (Acts 17:11).”
Pastor Wesley preaches on the passage found in Matthew Chapter 6 and verses 25-34 that dwells on the thought of not worrying about tomorrow and in trusting in the Lord to supply our needs.

I want to be a part of a church where broken people are welcome—a church where perfect people aren’t allowed, a place where people can embark on this journey without having everything figured out from the start. A church without the broken is a broken church!
