WATCHING YOUR THOUGHTS

THE CALL TO GODLINESS in an AGE OF JUDGEMENT – 4  “We have the mind of Christ” 1 Cor.2:16 “Let this mind be in you which was in Christ Jesus” Phil.2:5 “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” Rom. 12:2 “I will put my laws into their minds” Heb. 8:10 “Love the Lord your […]

STRAWS IN A SECULAR WIND

Recent reports from funeral directors and burial authorities have noted a very sharp decline in Church and Christian funerals.  Newspapers have commented on it. They have confirmed what many of us have noted with much sadness over a number of years. Funeral “services” can now be conducted by a great variety of people and are […]

APPALLING VULNERABILITY

What a lesson was driven home to us this last week end! A cyber bug crippling hospitals and businesses; operations and consultations stopped in their tracks, and cars frozen on assembly lines. The lesson was simply that our modern world is appallingly vulnerable. Cyber sabotage, for whatever reason, may not be as obviously bloodthirsty in […]

“THE END OF HISTORY ?”

In the last decade of the twentieth century a well-known American Professor wrote an historical survey in which he made a startling comment that we had reached “the end of history”. On the face of it the statement was absurd, but what he was seemingly trying to convey was that we had reached a stage […]

But unhappily, […]

HE IS RISEN INDEED! ALLELUIA!

At the very heart of the Christian faith is the fact that Jesus rose from the dead. Whatever else we may believe about Jesus, if we have not grasped this truth in our hearts we do not have an authentic faith, indeed our faith is meaningless. Paul the Apostle made this point very clearly when […]

“THERE WILL BE WARS AND RUMOURS OF WARS”

This blog comes to you in Holy Week. The title and subject hardly sounds appropriate! It looks much more like an everyday current newspaper heading. Perhaps a more devotional or religious topic would be preferable? On a closer look, however, it is really very much more appropriate than it might first seem. To begin with, these […]
