A Dozen Things God Did with Your Sin: And Three Things He’ll Never Do

I’ve yet to meet a Christian who isn’t, at one point in their lives or another, reminded of their sin and feels guilt and shame. There are also Christians who feel powerlessly wracked with guilt that they doubt they are even a Christian in the first place. Satan knows how to remind us of ourContinue reading “A Dozen Things God Did with Your Sin: And Three Things He’ll Never Do”

Called to Reconciliation: How the Church Can Model Justice, Diversity, and Inclusion

Justice, diversity and inclusion are three of the buzzwords in the world today. These are not bad things and christians should be calling for justice, diversity and inclusion. In some circles to say that the church should call for justice, diversity and inclusion would be enough to be branded a liberal.

Sharing the gospel is a must for every Christian. Evangelism is a command that Jesus gave the apostles and all of His people must engage in. But the way we evangelise is massively important.

Adam, the Holy Spirit and the Incarnation

Theology is important, that point cannot be stressed enough. Too many Christians go through life thinking that they don’t need to invest time in learning theology and digging into doctrines that are in the Bible. That is simply naive. To study theology, whether at an academic level or at home on the couch with aContinue reading “Adam, the Holy Spirit and the Incarnation”

Sexual Sin and the Promises of God

Sexual sin is not new, it is not an enemy that is only just showing it’s ugly head. Sexual sin has plagues humanity from the beginning of time, only made more accessible now to children of horrifically young ages. So, what hope is there? What can the Christian do to arm themselves in the fightContinue reading “Sexual Sin and the Promises of God”

The Least, the Last & the Lost

This book is a must-read for pastors, church planters and those trying to reach people in schemes (council estates) with the gospel. I was sent a pre-published pdf of the book and man, I devoured it! This book is over 400 pages, but it’s super readable and challenging.
