Only One Way to God in an Age of Tolerance?

This is good, and pleases God our Saviour, who wants all people to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. For there is one God and one mediator between God and mankind, the man Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for all people.” 1 Timothy 2:3-6 Many people today reject the exclusive claims of Christianity, which to them in […]

Are you in the same boat as the disciples?

“And the men marvelled, saying, “What sort of man is this, that even winds and sea obey him?” Matthew 8:27  Over the three years that Jesus lived with and taught his disciples, they very rarely understood who Jesus really was because they kept interpreting Jesus’ actions through their own desires and ideas. Their desire and idea, that […]

  “God is spirit, and his worshipers must worship in the Spirit and in truth.” John 4:24 It turns out that the story of the Samaritan woman at the well reveals much about what is at the heart and core of true worship …  Unholy people meet with a holy God The Samaritan woman was not […]

Who are you looking on to help you through today?

“And I will ask the Father, and he will give you another Helper, to be with you forever” John 14:16 There is nothing better than the rich aroma of a freshly brewed cup of caffeine in the morning.

The idea of being a display people is an ancient one. Way back in the early days of the Old Testament God […]

The Reality Check of Star Gazing

“The heavens declare the glory of God, the sky above proclaims his handiwork” Psalm 19:1 My life, which God willing will consist on average around 670 000 hours, so quickly becomes absorbed by day to day activities. I very rarely raise my eyes to actually take in the heavens, which, I would propose, is detrimental to […]
