Flawed and Fallen
More than Conquerors in Christ Jesus
Watch your Mouth
The great puritan pastor Thomas Brooks (1608-1680) spoke these informing words: “we know metals by their tinkling, and men by their talking.” Words can build up or they can tear down. Our words are a powerful tool. For this reason, the believer must watch their mouth and make use of their words to the glory of God.
Jesus is Sufficient
Aliclairemilroy I have been a Christian now for about 17 years. The more I learn the more I realize I don’t know.

The Sinfulness of Sin
Nothing, I am convinced, will astonish us so much, when we awake in the resurrection day, as the view we shall have of sin and the retrospect we shall take of our own countless shortcomings and defects. Never till the hour when Christ comes the second time shall we fully realize the ‘sinfulness of sin’.
Do you really know yourself?
It’s a scary thought, isn’t it? I think I am going well as a Christian, but all along I’m a whisker away from being spat out by Jesus… Wealth deludes.
Are They Crazy?
Are they crazy? No – they are not crazy. They are simply reflecting the depravity of human nature without God. Their perverted thinking is what we should expect from people who live without the constraints of Christian influence, indeed without any apparent awareness of God, the creator of life (John 1:3).
True Christianity is a Fight
J. C. Ryle “The man of granite, with the heart of a child.” 1816-1900Martyn Lloyd-Jones described Ryle’s writings as “a distillation of true Puritan theology presented in a highly readable and modern form.” “I am bold to say that perhaps few men in the nineteenth century did so much for God, for truth, for righteousness, among the…
