Sermons on Sin

Questions of Life: 3 of 7: Does sin actually matter?

Genesis 3:1-24 A London drinking song begins with the lyrics “Here’s to sin and here’s to virtue, a little bit of both won’t hurt you,” and the common feeling is that as long as no-one gets too badly hurt, there’s nothing wrong with a bit of grown-up naughtiness from time to time.

Get Serious 1 of 3: Why not live as I want?

Isaiah 5:1-30 Some see God as a doddery, toothless, old grandfather figure who is kind and well-meaning but harmless.

And so if we are wise, we will get serious about God. This series of talks from Isaiah is a chance to do just that.
