Romans 9?  Just before Christmas?  You have to be kidding!  But that is where we were at and that is where we continued.  I had hoped to do the whole chapter in one sermon but the more I looked at it, the more I realised that there was a lot there for us all to wrestle with and to help us.  So we only did … Continue reading Romans 9 – Does God Keep His Promises?

Persuasive Evangelism in The Local Church – FIEC Leaders Conference

I was greatly privileged to be allowed to speak at the FIEC leaders conference in Torquay.  As I wrote here it was a stimulating and encouraging time.  Here is the first of the seminars I gave – it was entitled ‘Apologetics in the Local Church’ although a better title would be ‘Persuasive Evangelism through the Local Church’.   I hope it is helpful. (I hope to … Continue reading Persuasive Evangelism in The Local Church – FIEC Leaders Conference

Harvest Thanksgiving, a Baptism, Ps 139, Romans 8:35-39 and God Made Humanity, Male and Female.

How does Good Theology Lead to Good Society, Law and Politics?

Modern society tends to be presented with two assumed opposites with regard to the relationship between Christianity and society.  On the one hand it is assumed that society should be secular and that religion should be at the level of a private club.  The alternative to this is assumed to be a kind of Christian theocracy where the church runs the State and pastors have … Continue reading How does Good Theology Lead to Good Society, Law and Politics?

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”
