Sun 9 Aug

They say that a good learning tool is repetition. To learn something you repeat it over and over in your mind. When I studied languages at Bible College – Greek and Hebrew – it required repetition. New alphabets were required. Grammars were different. Repetitive learning was required.As we come to the...

Some years back a meeting was held in Inverell’s Town Hall. The purpose of the meeting was to try and stop the opening of a brothel in the town. Because it was a small population, not a lot of interest was taken by the mainstream media. Although the local paper showed up. There were several speakers,...

At the present time a lot of cleanliness is being practiced. You go to the supermarket and you see glass screens in place. You see card readers being wiped down. Even buttons on pedestrian crossings are wiped down. Why? There is a bug on the loose with the potential to take one’s life. People are...

We read in the Bible that nothing is impossible for God. While this is true, from our perspective there appears to be plenty of things that are impossible.

Sun 7 Jun

Sacrament originally meant both “a thing set apart as sacred” and “a military oath of obedience.” The Presbyterian church along with most protestant churches...

Sun 31 May

The Holy Spirit is the third person of the trinity or godhead. Is it any wonder that Christians are often accused of being polytheists – worshipping more then one God. We talk about God the Father. We talk about God the Son. And now we talk about God the Holy Spirit. The Holy Spirit is personal...

Sun 24 May

If we were able to time travel and place ourselves back in the first century Israel, what would people be saying of Jesus? We know what they did think when Jesus asked his followers that exact question. Check it out in Matthew 16:13ff. Was Jesus a miracle worker? Was He one of the prophets? Was He...
