The Modern Church and Sin

“The fundamental fault of the modern church is that she is busily engaged in an absolutely impossible task – she is busily engaged in calling the righteous to repentance.  Modern preachers are trying to bring men into the Church without requiring them to relinquish their pride; they are trying to help men avoid the conviction of sin.” –       J. Gresham Machen,…

God Bless the Queen

I am grateful to Britain and to the Queen. I have heard her speak of Christianity and the gospel in her Christmas messages in the past. I am glad that she is a Christian. I am grateful that Britain brought the gospel to our shores. There is much for which to be thankful to our ‘mother-country’. ****THANK-YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING****

God Justifies the Ungodly, by C.H.Spurgeon

He makes those just who are unjust, forgives those who deserve to be punished, and favours those who deserve no favour. You thought, did you not, that salvation was for the good, that God’s grace was for the pure and holy, who are free from sin? ****THANK-YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING****

“To the Jew first”

Romans is said to be Paul’s masterpiece letter in which he explains the gospel. Romans 1:16 is said to be the key verse of the letter: “For I am not ashamed of the gospel, for it is the power of God for salvation to everyone who believes, to the Jew first and also to the Greek”. What a great verse! But what does that last bit mean? How is the gospel “to the Jew…

What’s in a Church Mission Statement?

Committing to God’s Work means firstly committing ourselves to Him, conforming to what God wants and allowing God to transform our character, shape the way we live and influence our priorities. It’s through our perseverance in obedience to God that He matures and refines our character. ****THANK-YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING****

Triumphant and Changeless Grace

He willingly bowed under the weight of a judgement whose justness only the understanding of the one who was sinless could grasp fully, and he bowed under it because from eternity he had purposed to do so. ****THANK-YOU FOR SUBSCRIBING****

Do I believe the Bible?

These are words we know as Evangelicals. We know about liberal churches and wishy-washy Christians and even pagans for that matter, who will not listen to the Word of God. They want to hear smooth things to suit their itching ears. They want a positive message that makes them feel good. They don’t want a message that will make them feel uncomfortable and call on them…

Christian Obligations

An obligation is a moral, legal or social requirement and it is an inherently negative ideal. That is not to say that it cannot have positive outcomes or that all obligations are wrong (they are frequently not) but it is negative nonetheless. I fulfil an obligation in order to avoid a negative consequence. Whether the consequences are moral guilt, legal punishment or…

Lite’n’easy Church

“Persuading people to visit and then remain at our churches in itself amounts to little. Some of the world’s largest churches numerically are among its most disgracefully distorted and heretical. The end goal is not ‘bums on pews’. The end goal is to see people transferred from darkness into the kingdom of God’s Son through the powerful work of his word and…
