Two Souls, Alas…  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 18: 9–14
Summary: As long as we acknowledge only the “decent” side of ourselves, spiritual justification eludes us. But when we can also see our darker side, we have the perspective necessary to pray, “God, be merciful to me a sinner.” And then we can become right with God.

Going Home Justified  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 18: 9–14
Summary: At stake in this parable of Jesus is what it means to be “righteous,” what it means to be in a right relationship with God. Jesus uses this parable to contrast two very different understandings of “righteousness” — a conventionally religious understanding, and an understanding that takes the whole idea of “relationship with God” to a radical level.

The Right Demeanor  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 18: 9–14
Summary: Jesus told a story of two men who went to the temple to pray. One, who was prideful, could not get through to God. The other, though a conspicuous sinner, had the humility to admit his unworthiness and was justified. Even good people need humility, for it is the fertile ground where faith grows and where God plants new life in us.

We Can Do This the Easy Way or We Can Do This the Hard Way  Click here Click title to view sermon Luke 18: 9–14
Summary:  Jesus’ story about the Pharisee and the tax collector in the temple shows both how easy and how hard salvation is. It’s easy in the sense that it depends entirely on God’s mercy, not our own righteousness. It’s hard because that means precisely not trusting in our own righteousness. The story goes beyond superficial questions about how religious we are and focuses on the question of where we put our trust.
