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
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
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
Dinosaurs are probably the most common tool used by evolutionists to demonstrate the long-age paradigm of the earth and to discredit the Biblical account of creation. They are a very powerful weapon due to the way dinosaurs captivate the minds of kids and adults alike – they are prominent in films, leisure parks and many other forms of entertainment. We would be very surprised to hear of any mainstream media that does not promote the idea the dinosaurs existed many hundreds of millions of years in the past before dying out 65 million years ago. You would imagine this is proven beyond any doubt given the deeply entrenched certainty that… Continue reading
You would hope that anyone could go into a church for a Sunday service and hear a solid gospel message, the fact that this is not case is not only shocking but evidence we are in the last days. Every week thousands attend churches without knowing anything is wrong, many of these people may not even be ‘born again’ because they’ve not been told the need for repentance by their leaders.
Then there are those who can see the apostasy in our churches but don’t have any churches near them that are truthful to God’s Word. It is a sad climate that we live in as the support… Continue reading
The Bible clearly warns that there will be deception in the last days, Jesus warned us about this 4 times in Matthew 24! Deception is coming from many routes now, from local pastors to world leaders, with the most obvious sign being teaching against God’s Word.
One of the clearest verses in the Bible is John 14:6:
Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me. (John 14:6)
There is… Continue reading
Church worship is one of the most intimate acts that exist between the Christian and the Lord God. We’ve all heard of dour and cold churches where the ‘singing’ of hymns sounds more like a funeral service than the heartfelt praise and adoration to our Creator – however, the reverse of this is also a serious problem…something this blogger describes as “performancism”. He goes on to outline this as being a pretense of worship with, “The worship leader as the performer. The congregation as the audience. The sanctuary as the concert hall.” This is a serious issue and something every Christian should be on guard against and it is… Continue reading
