Most Christians at some point during their lives hear the familiar verse in Christ’s famous Sermon on the Mount which goes: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father, which is in heaven is perfect (Matthew 5:48).” There has been and continues to be much discussion and debate in the Christian world about what this verse and others like it mean.
I do not intend to jump in on that discussion, but simply wanted to pass on some good input on the subject. What I’m posting here is simply a link to a Brigham Young University Devotional Speech by Dr. Joseph D. Parry entitled, ‘On Being a Christian Perfectly‘, which can be downloaded in text form or as an mp3. This is a wonderful talk on the subject and gives us some points to think about when it comes to how Christians can apply the teachings of Christ to their daily lives. Whether you’re religious or not, one can hardly say that the ideals and principles addressed in this talk are bad things. Check it out; you’ll like it.
