The Dark Side of Transgender Ideology

Last week the Scottish government passed an act which will ensure that LGBTI ‘inclusive’ education will be taught in every school and in every subject.  This is something that was rejected by that same government a couple of years ago – but now apparently every politician thinks it is a good thing.  This is because, with the exception of a handful like Patrick Harvie – … Continue reading The Dark Side of Transgender Ideology

The Golden Chain (Romans 8:28-30), Predestination; Matthew 1; Monday Message and St Pauls

Last Sunday morning we looked at some ‘meat’…the Golden Chain of Romans 8:28-30 including the subject of predestination!  As you can imagine lots of questions afterwards…here is the whole service…you can get the sermon only from the St Peters website.   In my view it is so practical and helpful for Christians to grasp this – indeed, as in my own case, it is life changing. … Continue reading The Golden Chain (Romans 8:28-30), Predestination; Matthew 1; Monday Message and St Pauls

The Greatest Doctrine (Romans 8:28); Proverbs 1 and “It is Well With My Soul”

Martyn Lloyd-Jones says that Romans 8:32 contains the highest doctrine that there is.  After preaching on it last Sunday I am inclined to agree.  It is a profound and beautiful teaching – that is absolutely life changing once you get it and believe it.  Many of us were deeply moved and assured by it. You can here the whole service here or just the sermon … Continue reading The Greatest Doctrine (Romans 8:28); Proverbs 1 and “It is Well With My Soul”
