We are living in very testing times, the world is rapidly changing as our post-Christian society gains traction. Instead of churches separating themselves from changes around us that compromise scripture they are choosing the opposite to be seen as modern and appealing. The stakes are massive here as relationships with God walk a tightrope for both churches and individuals. There is a serious need for each person to look themselves and their personal relationship with God to assess if changes need to be made.
The health of a church is largely down to the leader and the team they have around them. Ultimately, church leaders are called to shepherd the… Continue reading
There have been stories in recent weeks that perfectly highlight the complete spiritual disarray within the denominational church in the UK. The most disturbing feature for us is the churches recent transition from the passive silence to the positive approval of the spectacular departure from Biblical morality within society. At a time when the truth and love of Jesus Christ is needed more than ever, we instead are left with a church environment that is carried along like the wind with the narrative of a culture that defiantly opposes God. By many measures, many protestant denominations have become more apostate than the Roman Catholic church and that’s no endorsement of… Continue reading
What does the cross mean to you? For the Christian, it symbolizes the difference between life and death, not only Jesus’ but everyones! It is a symbol of everything that Jesus Christ did for us: His life, death and resurrection are the foundations of the Christian faith. To non-Christians though, it seems to mean a variety of things from a simple fashion accessory to a something that causes personal offence. The cross clearly means so little to some organisations as they have put extra effort into removing them from some of their packaging.
The German supermarket Lidl saw something wrong with having a cross on top of a building covering… Continue reading
Last week, marked 50 years since the introduction of the Abortion Act that passed through UK Parliament on 27th Oct 1967. Since then 8,700,000 babies have been murdered in the wombs of their mother through abortion which represents approximately one in five of all pregnancies. Another statistic that illustrates the sheer scale of the problem is that one out of three women have had an abortion.
These are shameful figures and should be taken as an indictment of the moral state of Britain. Instead of this, the reporting of this 50-year milestone has been portrayed as a celebration on the most part and a sign of ‘progress’.
We regularly blog… Continue reading
Within the social climate of the UK, we have long reached the point where common sense and truth have been overtaken in importance by the avoidance of causing offence. However, with ‘gender-neutrality’, we have arrived at a point where we are being forced to agree with a clear lie. This is where the cult of ‘political correctness’ has reached new levels of absurdity.
We are now being asked (soon to be forced) to stop referring to pregnant women as ‘women’ – it appears they are pregnant ‘people’. This is clearly ridiculous. No ‘man’ has ever got pregnant, not one – it is physically and biologically impossible. There are examples of… Continue reading
If you look at culture within the UK, you could say there are two powerful forces that have been on the rise in the recent years that have great influence on life: the far-left and Islam. On paper, these two worldviews are so diametrically opposed to each other that it’s virtually impossible to find any common ground. However, in this blog, Dave Reagan points out that it is what they are both opposed to that is a more powerful force than what their differences are – both camps are so blinded by their ‘common hatred of Christianity’ (which is commonly mistaken for the far-right) that they overlook their incredible… Continue reading
By any barometer, the world appears to be going through a very turbulent period. Brexit dominates Europe (and particularly the UK) causing greater division by the day and many parts of the world are being pummeled by record-breaking storms and natural disasters. We believe the Lord is desperately trying to get our attention – everything is drawing towards a dramatic climax which we believe have all the hallmarks of the days leading to the return of Jesus Christ.
Amongst the stories of devastation and fear, it was great to hear the calm and reasoned defense of ‘traditional marriage’ and the ‘sanctity of life’ from politician Jacob Rees-Mogg this week. In… Continue reading
