Broken Bonds…Broken Hearts

Passage: Matthew 5: 31-32, Psalm 34: 17-18
Service Type:

When a serious car accident occurs the police and ambulance services are summoned, and when they arrive, they focus on their respective responsibilities. The police investigate the cause while the paramedics bind up the wounded. In his Sermon, Jesus addresses the painful reality of divorce. To understand what Jesus is saying we must first consider the filter we are using when reading his words. Are we reading it through the Law or through ‘love your neighbour as yourself’ (the Royal Law)?  Is Jesus a cop or a paramedic?
