Sermon on the Mount: Ed Bacon

Love is the Center of Everything (feat. Ed Bacon)



Welcome to Episode 70 of the #AskSteveAustin Podcast with Steve Austin, featuring frequent guest of the show, Rev. Ed Bacon. This episode launches our Summer Series on The Sermon on the Mount. For the next several weeks, Steve will be interviewing pastors, teachers, and friends on selected verses from the Matthew, chapters 5-7. Today, Steve asks Ed three big questions:

  1. What does it mean to love our enemies?
  2. What is the difference between “Jesus” and “Christ”?
  3. What does it mean to come into Christ consciousness?
