On January 6, the world watched as riots in DC turned violent and threatened the lives of public servants in both parties. Some of the rioters claimed to be motivated by their Christian faith, donning Christian symbols into the Capitol. Others who claim to be Christ-followers have said they support the insurrection on the same basis. How should those seeking to follow the crucified Nazarene view and respond to such claims? Join us this week as we pause our current sermon series in order to see our current events through the lens of Scripture.

SCRIPTURE: Exodus 20:1-7

And God spoke all these words, saying,

2 “I am the Lord your God, who brought you out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of slavery.

3 “You shall have no other gods before me.

4 “You shall not make for yourself a carved image, or any likeness of anything that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth. 5 You shall not bow down to them or serve them, for I the Lord your God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children to the third and the fourth generation of those who hate me, 6 but showing steadfast love to thousands of those who love me and keep my commandments.

7 “You shall not take the name of the Lord your God in vain, for the Lord will not hold him guiltless who takes his name in vain.
