Week 1: Materialism: "Our beliefs about life after here... determine what we are here after!"

Week 2:
“Moralism”
(Luke 18:9-14)

Why is this so important?
Because if God and heaven really exist... then there must be met expectations for entrance into His kingdom.
mor·al·ism noun
1. the belief that our moral standing before God is dependent on our behavior
2. the belief that the Gospel can be reduced to improvements in behavior
"who trusted" = to convince, sometimes by argument (they convinced themselves and others)
"and despised others" = to make as nothing, worthless

» The Self-righteous man, in essence, said to the tax collector “You are worthless to me.”
The Pharisees' motto was I DON'T!

"The point is clear - this is what parents expect, the culture affirms, and many churches celebrate. But our communities are filled with people who have been 'raised right' but are headed to hell."
—Al Mohler
The Tax collector's motto was I CAN'T!
EVERY SIN WE COMMIT IS AN INSIDE JOB!
justified = to render as just, innocent
DESPISE = WORTHLESS TO ME

Jesus became WORTHLESS FOR ME!
My heart aches for two kinds of people:
People who fail to acknowledge their need for Jesus AND people who have abandoned their need for Jesus.

In Conclusion:
There will never come a day that we need Jesus any less than we do RIGHT NOW!
