We have regularly stressed the fundamental truth that Christianity without the resurrection is not Christianity – our faith hinges on the historicity of Christ been raised from the dead, never to die and this makes Him utterly unique among anyone in history. This fundamental truth is under constant attack.
In the week leading up to Easter, the BBC displayed the headline news that according to a quarter of Christians, the ‘resurrection did not happen’.
What was not clear was that this survey distinguished between ‘active’ and ‘non-active’ Christians and the 25% figure comes from combining the groups – ie. it included ‘non-active’ Christians. We are also not told how an… Continue reading
We blog on the abortion issue fairly frequently as we believe this is a key barometer of how much society values the life of the weakest individuals and by implication how close a nation is aligned to God’s moral values. In our most recent blog we made the grim prediction that there would be increasing calls to end the lives of infants soon after birth. One of the reasons for this is that we cannot see what basis there is for denying the right of parents to kills their babies just after birth if it’s OK before birth – after all, the status of the baby as a living being… Continue reading
Those who have an interest in prophecy will be very familiar with 2 Timothy 3:1-7 – it is a passage that is regularly the subject of church sermons and is one of the key passages concerning end-time indicators. It clearly provides an accurate description of the world around us and it is patently obvious that this prophecy is being uniquely fulfilled in this generation. In fact, it’s quite frightening to consider how accurately this describes society today which alone should be a urgent wake-up call to stay alert and not be distracted or seduced by matters of this world.
However, there are some details in this passage that are often… Continue reading
At the start of this year, we blogged about some ‘prophetic’ words by David Noakes ahead of the EU referendum. As we said then, we are cautiously attentive to any ‘prophecy’ received by Godly believers concerning God’s plan for this country, particularly when a high view of Scripture is a priority for the ‘messenger’.
In a Christian landscape flooded with various forms of theology and Bible interpretation we commend the Prophecy Today UK ministry as appearing to have a sincere and Biblical heart for the Lord in the these last days. We wholeheartedly agree with Clifford Hill in his recent update where he says, ‘My frustration is due to the… Continue reading
Last week, the BBC aired a documentary ‘A World Without Downs’ in which Sally Phillips explores the issues surrounding a new prenatal test for Downs Syndrome. This new test provides 99% accuracy in determining the likelihood of a Downs baby and she expresses concern that this will cause a dramatic increase in the number of babies who are aborted – there are even fears that we could soon be in the same position as countries like Iceland where virtually every single baby identified as having Downs Syndrome is aborted – a Downs-free country. This is a shameful indictment on a society that increasingly places much less value on the disabled… Continue reading
Crop circles may seem like a very unlikely subject of a blog on a website committed to the spread of the gospel of Jesus Christ in these last days. However, this is a phenomenon we don’t feel we can ignore as they appear to be impossible to explain and we believe they may be connected to the signs of the end times. Not only do crop circles seemingly appear in a very short duration of time, they are incredibly intricate and complex. Many of them are stunning in appearance and are completed in perfect arrangement within hours which would appear to rule out any possibility of being man-made. Their… Continue reading
There have been some notable examples in recent weeks of anti-Israel behaviour and double standards in the sporting arena. These are worth a mention because no other nationality in the world has to endure prejudice in the ways Israelis do and we can only put this down to underlying anti-Semitism.
During the Olympic games, there were reports of the Lebanese team refusing to allow members of the Israeli team share a bus to the opening ceremony. There were athletes pulling out of the competition to avoid having to compete against Israeli opponents. Following that, an Egyptian judo fighter refused to shake the hand of the Israeli who had just beaten… Continue reading
