From the Cradle to the Cross

Date 25th December 2011  by Keith Warren  Bible passage Matthew 2:13-18

With all the positive sides that there are to Christmas, we must realize that not everyone was pleased with this miracle: Immanuel, God with us!

Jesus is for Ordinary People

Date 18th December 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Luke 2:8-20

At the slight risk of offence, it can be said that most Aussies are ‘ordinary’ people who have ‘ordinary’ jobs and ‘ordinary’ families. When it comes to religion – and in particular a religious celebration of Christmas – many people say: ‘well, what has it got to do with me?’ Doesn’t religion belong to a

Can God Make You a Christian?

Date 11th December 2011  by Ettiene de Wilzem  Bible passage Matthew 2:1-12

Recently I had a conversation with someone about evangelism. We mused on the great need of teaching Christian children how to evangelise. In the course of our conversation it felt almost as if we have lost sight of God’s ability and eagerness to show himself to people who don’t know him. It’s almost like we

In a world where the very idea of truth is questioned and claims to know the truth are seen as arrogance, it’s possible to downplay the importance of gospel truth. Sure the truth of the basic gospel matters, but how much beyond that? But the Bible is clear, truth matters. Why does it matter? And
