Sermon on The Mount is Only For Unbelieving Jews
Sad, but true, most Christians miss the point that the sermon on the mount is only a message for unbelieving Jews chasing out the law for righteousness.
For as long as I can remember, Christians have been told that the sermon on the mount is a message for Christians and how we should live or strive to live. But the truth is, anyone who hears this sermon is supposed to walk away, feeling totally condemned with no hope. Hell bound. No one should hear this message and feel like that should be their goal for daily living.
In the short video, we are going to examine Matthew 5 and we are going to break it down piece by piece. You will discover a few things:
- The sermon is only addressing Jewish people
- Jesus is going to show them they don’t even understand how perfect and holy the law REALLY is
- When Jesus gets done pointing out the true stand of the law, every human being on earth should be realizing how hopeless they are, and how desperately they need a better covenant found it on better hopes
This, if nothing else, should show us how we all need Jesus, forgiveness, the cross, and the promises of being saved, through faith, apart from works of the law.

Mike Cynar grew up in church and observed that countless people would go to church and then just stop. The church always referred to them as ‘fake Christians’ or ‘backsliders’ but Mike discovered the problem was deeper. The problem was the church message. The message was 90% behavior improvement and how bad you are, with a pinch of who you are in Christ, It was like every sermon was being preached to the church of Corinth. It’s in the Baptist church, Catholic, Pentecost, and most every other church. After discovering the true gospel message and how we are made right with God because of what ‘Jesus did’ (not what ‘we do’) Mike set out to free believers from behavior improvement programs and bring them back to Jesus. The Result – Jesus Without Religion was launched.
