Do You Self Identify as the Pharisee or the Publican?

August 25, 2020 • Pastor George Borghardt

The parable of the Pharisee and the Publican (Tax Collector)! We like to push ourselves up while pushing others down like the Pharisee. We like to think that we’re the Tax Collector but even when we are the Tax Collector we still don’t measure up. But don’t fret, the Gospel reminds you that no matter how bad you define yourself as something you’re not or how much you fall short Christ died on the cross for you so that you might be free from the chains of sin that bind you. Confess your Phariseeness and your Tax Collectorness and receive the forgiveness won for you on the cross and be saved. Host: Rev. George Borghardt, Pastor at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Bossier City, Louisiana and president of the youth organization Higher Things, Inc.

Why Does Pastor Just Preach the Same Sermon Every Week • November 19, 2020 • Pastor George Borghardt

Why do sermons sometimes sound the same from week to week? No, the pastor isn’t lazy or senile. You hear the same thing because you need to hear Christ and Him crucified every single week. Host: Rev.
