The Rev. Ben DeHart on Matthew 1. Alan Jones, former Dean of Grace Cathedral in San Francisco, once said, “We live in an age where everything is permitted and nothing is forgiven.” I think there’s a lot more truth in that little phrase than meets the eye. For you and I might be down with a whole lot more than our mothers and fathers were, but have you ever noticed that once the line has been crossed -- wherever that line might be -- there’s no coming back... In this sermon I talk about Mel Gibson, Mother Teresa, and why flipping Alan Jones phrase on it's head is the best kind of good news.
