Disagreeing Over Disagreements…

“One of the things that Christians are disagreed about is the importance of their disagreements. When two Christians of different denominations start arguing, it is usually not long before one asks whether such-and-such a point really matters, and the other replies, ‘Matter? Why, it’s absolutely essential’. ” ~ C.S. Lewis

Woefully Misrepresented…

“The nature of Christ’s salvation is woefully misrepresented by some present-day evangelists. They announce a Saviour from hell rather than a Saviour from sin. And that is why so many are fatally deceived…for there are multitudes who wish to escape the lake of fire who have no desire to be delivered from their carnality and […]

“Someone once said that ‘a community is where the person you like least always is.’ When you think about it, the early church was comprised of individuals, Jews and Gentiles, that despised each other. Yet they found themselves in the same fellowship purely because of the cross. But in the American church, we want to […]

Think About It…

“How often do we hear about the discipline of the Christian life these days? How often do we talk about it? How often is it really to be found at the heart of our evangelical living? There was a time in the Christian church when this was at the very center, and it is, I […]
