Archive for the 'cleanliness is next to godliness' Category

Pastor Whaley continues his sermon series entitled Misremembering the Bible by taking a look at the familiar phrase "Cleanliness is Next to Godliness."  While the phrase has great usage in the vernacular of the church, it is not found in the Bible.  In Mark 7, Jesus shows us that we are defiled from within and are in need of cleansing from without through Him alone.  The idea that we can clean ourselves up in order to find more favor with God can lead to a wrong understanding of God and salvation. 

This sermon was preached on Sunday, September 14, 2014.  This podcast is a ministry of First Baptist Church of Bogalusa, La.  Thank you for listening.
