Should Our Hands Be On the Table?


Last Updated on June 13, 2017

When a pastor starts off a message with the quote, “I will make fewer Christians out of you, yet,” you know you will be in for a unique message, to say the least.

Such was the case at my church this past week, when the topic was Judas, the disciple who betrayed Christ, leading to the crucifixion.

An interesting part of the story of the Last Supper that often goes without notice: Judas wasn’t anti-Jesus. In fact, he took part in the Last Supper. By all indications, he was a devout follower of Jesus Christ. But something dramatic happened that led him to a path of betrayal.

Christ let His disciples know that he would be betrayed by one of them, and that hands of His betrayer were on the table at the time.

I’d really like to encourage you to watch this video. It’s a full message, so it’ll take a little time, but it’s definitely worth it because it’s thought-provoking and it tackles one of the biggest problems non-believers have with religion and many religious people: that we want all the rewards of being a Christian, without accepting any of the responsibilities for doing so.
