Matthew 5-7, the Sermon on the Mount, is probably my most favorite part of the Bible. I was reading an article out of a magazine which discussed the first 12 verses of this section. Matthew 5:1-12 is most commonly know as the Beatitudes. I have never truly understood nor do I currently understand all the implications about this passage. However, in reading this article written by R. J. Rushdoony, I have a little more insight as to what Christ was saying about "meekness, mercy, and being pure in heart." Everyone out there should take 5 minutes to read this article.
