Man is Something That Must be Overcome

“Man is something that must be overcome.” Man! Nor only the bad, the godless, the unbelieving, the immoral man, but man in every form, man as such, man as he is, irrespective of his evils, or of his noble, helpful, good characteristics and high aspirations righteous and unrighteous, godless and pious man. There is a […]

Living by Christian Values

There is a great deal of discussion and debate today about “Christian values”. The term is used to describe the spiritual/moral principles around which believers build their life. On the surface it would seem that defending Christian values is a noble cause. Yet the Bible never teaches that our life should be built around a […]

Raw Grace

In August of 1521, Martin Luther wrote a letter to his friend, Philipp Melanchthon. Here’s what he had to say about raw grace: It suffices that through God’s glory we have recognized the Lamb who takes away the sin of the world. No sin can separate us from Him, even if we were to kill […]

I’ve not seen clearer statistical evidence that fewer Christians die of cancer than non-believers, or that they are immune in greater degree from the diseases that afflict the human race. Some of the kindest, most selfless persons I have known have had more than their share of bad health. The fact that they belong to […]

What is our Centre?

One might think that with the Bible as the centre of Christianity, the unity of Christians could be easily realized. Unfortunately, this has not proved to be true. This inability of Scripture to unify the Lord’s people proves that the letter of the Bible cannot really replace the living Christ as the centre of our […]

Delight me to see how your Christ plays in ten thousand places. . .to the Father through the features of men’s faces. Each day enrapture me with your marvelous things without […]

Opposition

The religious leaders of His day made life difficult for Him. They challenged His authority (see Matthew 21:23) and tested His teachings (see Matthew 19:3). They also called Him a glutton, winebibber, friend of tax collectors and sinners (see Matthew 11:19), and blasphemer (see Mark 2:7). They said that He was demon-possessed and mad (see […]

God is Faithful.

1Co 1:9 God is faithful, by whom ye were called unto the fellowship of his Son Jesus Christ our Lord. A promise full stop. Our whole Christianity is secured on this one promise; it is where our faith rests, it is our guarantee, it is our legacy. We are called ‘unto the Church of God’, […]
