MURP 0059: The Scapegoat

No Bible class was held on Sunday due to Messiah’s Easter Sunday celebration schedule, but Pastor Otte and Phil Kasper sat down on Good Friday to talk about a meditation call “The Scapegoat”. We discuss how we may discern assigning blame versus holding a person accountable, how the term hate may be used, and how, even though we all are hypocrites in one way or another, that should not keep us from witnessing to others about Jesus Christ.
