The Church In This Decade

church in this decade

There is an ongoing discussion in the popular journals and magazines regarding the social impact of the present Covid-19 pandemic. Some analysts have looked at developments in Western society and Western culture after the 1918 Spanish Flu pandemic and are predicting a repeat of the Roaring Twenties when the Covid-19 pandemic eventually fizzles out. The Economist points to ...

Sons of Rebellion

sons of rebellion

Many people have a skewed characterisation of God based on His perceived temperament in the Old and New Testaments. The Old Testament God is the fire and brimstone God, while the New Testament God is the love and forgiveness God. These are stereotypes we can apply to divide and mischaracterise God, but in the one divine Being there is justice and wrath as well as grace and...

The Ascension of Jesus

the ascension

In Acts 1 Luke tell us that after Jesus rose from the dead, He appeared to His disciples several times over a period of forty days. Luke said Jesus "presented Himself alive by many convincing proofs." (vs.3). After His resurrection Jesus was not a spirit being but a real "flesh and bones" person. This is clearly seen in Lk.24:36-43 where we are told Jesus ate a piece of f...

Two Opposing Views of Jesus Christ

two opposing

This year marks the centenary of the birth of the English theologian and writer, John Stott (1921 2011). Stott is best known for his book, Basic Christianity, which was rated by Christianity Today as one of the 100 best books of the twentieth century. I consider that book to be recommended reading for any new convert to the Christian Faith. Stott also wrote his apologia, ...

The Man-Made Church

MAN MADE CHURCH

Alister Begg wrote "You can come up with a biblically-diluted concoction of music, drama, self-help principles, and marketing strategies that will be able to grow a large congregation without anybody ever really knowing what God has to say in the Bible." Aptly, this quote summarizes for us a major reason for the spiritual and doctrinal disintegration in many Evangelical c...

Repentance

repentance

I know you have seen him, the man in the public square or on the street corner with a Bible in one hand and a microphone in the other. I am also sure that if you ever came across him, you would have heard him shouting almost with all his might "repent!" As you pass by, trying your best not to look, you make every effort to avoid his glance lest he calls you to repent in pu...

The Calvin Cycle

the calvin cycle

To the zealous theologians who may have been drawn to the topic of this article, I need to state immediately that it has nothing to do with our beloved Reformed theologian, John Calvin. And yet, it has everything to do with what John Calvin described as, "this skillful ordering of the universe [that] is for us a sort of mirror in which we can contemplate God, who is otherw...

The Sin of Disobedience

sin of disobedience

1Samuel 15 : 22 23, "Samuel said, "Has theLordas much delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices As in obeying the voice of theLord? Behold,to obey is better than sacrifice, Andto heed than the fat of rams. 23"For rebellion is as the sin ofdivination, And insubordination is asiniquity and idolatry. Because you have rejected the word of theLord, He has also rejected you fr...

The Spirit of God

spirit of god

Gen.1:1 says, "In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth." "In the beginning" points to the beginning of time and creation. The point to note here is that if God was already there in the beginning, then God precedes the beginning. If God precedes the beginning, then God is eternal. Moses is the author of Genesis and Psalm 90. Psa.90:1-2 says, Lord, You have b...

Creation of Mankind

creation of mankind1

In this article I want to take up the subject of the Biblical account of God's creation of mankind. That account is recorded for us in Gen.1:26-31 2:7-9, 15-25. Both accounts deal with God's creation of mankind on the sixth day. Take careful note of how I have set out the reading of both chapters. 1:24 Then God said, "Let the earth bring forth living creatures after thei...
