The Better Covenant – Part Two

Last week, I wrote a post to show that Christians have been called to a far better covenant than the old one God entered with the Hebrews.  I lamented that too many Christians do not realise the beauty of the new or understand their liberty in this better […]

Discipline and Christianity

The first people to be called Christians were first called “disciples” of Jesus Christ (Acts 11:26).  A disciple can be best defined as a student/follower of a Teacher/Leader, who studies a discipline (profession) to gain mastery over it and become equipped to pass on the training to others. […]

What is Christ Without the Cross?

Jesus Christ (or Yeshua) of Nazareth is the most popular, famous, impactful, remarkable Man that ever lived.  The fact that He was born at all is still the most significant event in this world’s history, more than 2000 years later!  We even set our dates by His birth. […]

It has become general knowledge among my readers that I do not hold the Bible to be infallible. Understandably, it’s a shock to many, because I profess to be Christian, and have many posts built on a vast knowledge and appreciation of scripture. Some think that I hold […]

Change Your Mind About Church

Jesus said, “wherever two or three are gathered in My name, there I am in their midst” (Matt 18:20).  In the beginning, the disciples of Jesus met at public places, in the market place, at synagogues and at the Temple.  Many met to fellowship at the homes of […]

It Sounds Like Baloney!

Many of us take for granted the simple message of the gospel that we have received and accepted as the TRUTH.  We’ve heard it so many times in Church, read it in so many pamphlets, and maybe even written about it as Facebook messages to our family and friends […]

When It Is Easier Not To Believe

Jesus teaches us that the pure in heart are blessed because only they will see God (Matt 5:8). When we are gifted with spiritual sight…to believe in God, to be aware of His presence, to desire His fellowship…we are blessed. But there are times when we do not […]
