Sometimes we think that traditions carry more authority than they do. What is a tradition and how are we to handle them biblically? This is a Sunday School address, not a sermon, and the speaker is Craig Brown who is an elder at CRC Tillamook.

The Purification of the Church — 1 Corinthians 5
This sermon gives superb teaching about true excommunication compared to the kind of excommunication which is done by hard-hearted leadership.

Ps Bob Kerrey
What Forgiveness IS and what it is NOT (PDF version)
What Forgiveness IS and what it is NOT (audio version – mp3)
In this sermon Pastor Bob Kerrey explains what forgiveness is and what it is not. The sermon was originally titled “Breaking Barriers to Intimacy with God: Overcoming Unforgiveness”. Ps Kerry has given permission for us to apply a different title to it. We have given it a title that will be more engaging for survivors of abuse.
Similar teaching on forgiveness to that by Ps Bob Kerrey can be found in Steven Tracy’s book, Mending the Soul.
Ps Chris Davis
Explains why sexual abuse in marriage is prohibited; you can see our reader’s comments on this sermon here.
