2016/03/26 - The Legal Model vs The Healing Model by David Clarke
Title: The Legal Model vs The Healing Model by David Clarke 
Date: March 26, 2016 (Sabbath Service - Worship)
Speaker: David Clarke

One model says the ultimate punishment is death, with God as judge and executioner. The other model says sins punishes sin with God as the great physician and source of life. How can we understand these two models together? 41 mins.

Mark 2:17 
17 And when Jesus heard it, he said to them, “Those who are well have no need of a physician, but those who are sick. I came not to call the righteous, but sinners.” (ESV)

Luke 6:46-48 
46 “Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you? 47 Everyone who comes to me and hears my words and does them, I will show you what he is like: 48 he is like a man building a house, who dug deep and laid the foundation on the rock. And when a flood arose, the stream broke against that house and could not shake it, because it had been well built. (ESV)
