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
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
When asked about the signs of the end-times in the Olivet Discourse, Jesus drew a parallel between the ‘days of Noah’ and the days prior to His return – effectively Jesus was saying that there would be a repeat of the situation that led to the flood:
But as the days of Noah were, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be. For as in the days that were before the flood they were eating and drinking, marrying and giving in marriage, until the day that Noe entered into the ark, And knew not until the flood came, and took them all away; so shall also the… Continue reading
‘The Goat, or Who is Sylvia?’ is a production in the West End that features a chap called Martin who’s marriage falls apart due to an affair – nothing unusual there as adultery is not mildly shocking anymore. The difference here is that Martin has fallen in ‘love’ with a goat.
This production marks a clear attempt to break another of our cultural taboos – bestiality. Adultery and ‘pre-marital’ sexual activity are common practice now and this is no longer news – it’s normal. Since then, the boundaries of marriage have been tinkered with and re-defined to include any adult human relationship regardless of gender or sexual preference – this… 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
