Blessed Deconstruction

The Sermon on the Mount deconstructs religious assumptions and frees us to grow and flourish.

Where we are headed and why is it worth it?

Persecuted for getting it right? Welcome to the Kingdom.

Character that is unmixed (like good salt), and unhindered (like a burning lamp) — that’s spiritual flourishing.

Deconstructing religious assumptions isn’t being unfaithful when it is for the sake of genuine spiritual growth.



  1. Is this understanding of the Sermon on the Mount good news for you?
  2. What about for others you know; how could it help?
  3. If this is helpful, how can we get better at understanding, living, and sharing the Sermon on the Mount?
