This week, social media has been dominated by the witch-hunt of a ‘trophy’ hunter who brutally killed Cecil the lion in Zimbabwe. We cannot begin to understand this industry and fathom why tourists can take such pleasure in the cruel and pointless slaughter of these precious animals.
However, as is often the case, we are astonished at the double standards displayed when stories like this hit the news. It is right that there should be outrage at ‘trophy hunting’ in general as many thousands of animals lose their lives to this abhorrent ‘sport’ each year. Despite this, we fail to see why this particular lion is more valuable than all… Continue reading
The blog title could appear to be an endorsement of actions that pollute our world – this is not the case. Let us stress that mankind is commanded to be responsible stewards of our environment both at a local and worldwide level. There is no excuse for polluting and plundering the world of its resources and robbing it of the majestic beauty it was created with. However, the fact remains that we cannot save it – no matter what action we take, the Bible clearly predicts worldwide environmental carnage in the end times. We should do all we can to prevent this and certainly not be either active or passive… Continue reading
There have been reports of weird noises from around the world for some years now that remain unexplained. As you can hear from the footage in this article from the Mail Online these alarming noises are very loud and have been described as trumpets or brass instruments from an orchestra.
The article does list a number of possible theories including tectonic plates grinding and atmospheric pressure, then lastly this one…
As we enter a new year, we can begin with renewed hopes and good intentions as we start afresh for another year. Many of our resolutions will naturally fade after a couple of months (if they even last that long!) but some we are able to sustain and keep going as long as our will-power allows. However, there is one sell-out gift this Christmas we pray dies out very quickly – the Ouija board!
Following on from a Hollywood film it seems these boards have been a very popular gift – Wicked ‘Supernatural’ Gift Among 2014’s Christmas Sell-Out Items. Unfortunately, these hideous tools are one of many methods used… Continue reading
Our lives often seem to be an ongoing struggle, from personal tragedies and societal hardship to witnessing the moral decline in society that is rapidly advancing. With all the suffering on display and amid worldwide chaos, can there really be a God of love? We all want to believe in a God of love but at times this feels more like wishful thinking. To the non-Christian is it very difficult to believe there is a creator that loves us with so many things going so wrong for so many people.
A friend of ours has recently created a new website that we highly recommend. Essentially, it is a collection of books that he has written on a variety of topics related to Biblical Christianity. Written by UK resident Sean Kehoe, it is rare to find a website with such a solid Biblical grounding that proudly and unashamedly takes the Bible at face-value without forcing it to fit around man-made doctrine. Within the site, the gospel is clearly articulated and the “books” are a great resource in dealing with many often avoided topics.
Testimonies are important, they describe personal experiences that have influenced our decisions and lives. We felt it was important to make our testimonies available so we have put them on video. We both have different paths in coming to Christ and hope you will be blessed on some way by our stories. Steve’s testimony is below and Danny’s will be posted soon. This is also on our Who are we? page.
