Scriptures: Proverbs 27:4, 14:30, Matthew 27:18, Philippians 4:11


One of man's most destructive emotions is jealousy. Compared in the Bible to wrath and fierce anger, jealousy wreaks havoc on relationships, friendships, families and lives every day. It is a cancer that kills marriages, and is among Satan's most effective weapons to turn blessing into bitterness and caring into cursing. In this message, Dr. Merritt takes a biblical look at the powerful sin that is jealousy, and reveals not only how to rise above it, but how to slay it with a Christ-centered strategy.


"One of the major causes of jealousy is when we begin to compare ourselves with others. We compare our house to their house, our car to their car, our paycheck to their paycheck, and when that happens you get in trouble. You then begin to think of yourself as less than what you really are." --Dr. Merritt
