With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus. (Acts 4:33 NIV)
As Christians, we like to share our testimonies and are led to believe that these first-hand accounts are one of the most effective ways to encourage non-believers to find out more about the Christian faith. It is worth exploring whether this is the best approach, particularly with the younger generation. Steve spoke on this topic in a recent sermon for St. Andrews Baptist church. (Due to social restrictions with the coronavirus this sermon was recorded separately).
The video mentioned during the recording can to viewed at the bottom of this blog.… Continue reading
We strongly encourage a viewing of the interview below – Ben Shapiro interviews John MacArthur and covers a number of subjects including:
- Faith v politics
- Morality and relativism
- Biblical authority

Do you want Jesus? It’s a simple question that is often misunderstood as some feel-good experience that will change our lives. It is a dark world we live in that is getting bleaker by the day but there is a light in this darkness. There is a truth amongst the lies that offers eternal hope, do you want it?

Although everyone would insist they are open to searching for the ‘truth’, presuppositions usually cloud these conversations leaving little space for a change of mind.
However, there is one simple way to cut to the chase in these conversations with an effective technique, as covered on Faithwire.

Ray Comfort has an incredible gift of evangelism and we have a few of his video’s on our website where his unique style can be observed – he seems able to combine a genuinely loving and caring approach without compromising any of the truths of the gospel.

We find it interesting that in many of the clips in Ray’s videos, it is the reality of a coming judgment that appears to grab peoples attention and the reality of their own need of salvation when presented with God’s moral law –… Continue reading

In the Old Testament, the Lord used the prophets to relay His messages to those concerned, so you see the prophets starting with “the Lord Almighty says …” or “Thus says the Lord …“:
Thus says the Lord: “Keep justice, and do righteousness, For My salvation is about to come, And My righteousness to be revealed. (Isaiah 56:1 NKJV)
Thus says the Lord: “Cursed is the man who trusts in man And makes… Continue reading
