  • Subversive Christianity Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Aug 30, 2020
     | 365 views

    This is Talk 1 in a 13 talk series from Colossians. Alternative philosophies, learning thankfulness, a letter to our church.

    I’d like to read to you a letter written from prison written in 2004. From a father to a son …. “Hi my boy. Thankyou for coming to see me. It made me feel so good to see you that it hurt because I really do miss you. I am proud of you, Nolan. Please be good at school and listen to your mother, ...read more

  • The Pain Of Truth Decay

    Understanding Biblical truth in a post-truth world

    The 2018 notable quote of the year came from Rudy Giuliani, an American politician who said, “Truth isn’t truth”. He meant that there are lots of versions of the truth, different versions called “alternative facts”. We live in a post-truth world. Unfortunately “truth” in the 21st century has a very ...read more

  • Scripture And Truth

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Sep 2, 2019
     | 418 views

    A talk intended to increase confidence in Scripture, regarding it as a source of truth and considering its historical features.

    There’s a saying that goes like this, “A Bible in the hand is worth two in the bookcase”. C.H. Spurgeon wrote: "I would recommend you either believe God up to the hilt, or else not to believe at all. Believe this book of God, every letter of it, or else reject it. There is no logical standing ...read more

  • Seriously, Someone Rising From The Dead?

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Apr 22, 2019
     | 1,227 views

    An Easter Sunday talk which touches on the evidence for the resurrection before explaining its significance.

    Seriously, someone rising from the dead? I was doing some research recently on the longest anyone has ever been dead before being brought back to life. Some of the stories seemed a little far-fetched. But The Daily Telegraph in the UK ran a headline on 19 April 2019, “Lazarus Syndrome: man comes ...read more

  • Fanaticism Taken Too Far?

     | 792 views

    A Good Friday talk from the point of view of Jesus and religious fanaticism.

  • The Spirit Is Coming! Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 3,557 views

    Joel promises restoration through his Son and the sending of his Spirit. God promises to renew people who repent and turn to him.

    For all the talk about forging our own brave, new world, the evidence seems to the contrary. People are despondent and the world seems a mess. Every day the ideological battles play out in the public square are they are prising apart public opinion and fragmenting society. Climate change—gender ...read more

  • Swing The Sickle Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 2,540 views

    God's judgement is fearful. God will call to account those who reject him. Don't say you weren't warned. Return to the Lord.

  • A Big Wake Up Call Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Feb 17, 2019
     | 4,269 views

    The Book of Joel is a wake up call. God is good but he is not safe.

  • What Sort Of Day? Series

     | 2,281 views

    The Day of the Lord is a day to prepare for and this is done by trusting in Jesus.

  • The Lord Is Good

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Jan 6, 2019
     | 3,039 views

    A short sermon for a funeral service. I wrote this talk for the funeral of a Christian person.

    In Nahum 1.7—a book in the Bible not often heard—the prophet Nahum says, “The LORD is good, a refuge in times of trouble. He cares for those who trust in him” (Nahum 1:7). It may seem counter-intuitive to consider this verse at a funeral when death is clearly on our minds. How can we say that the ...read more

  • I'm Too Proud To Be Humble Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Dec 17, 2018
     | 1,507 views

    A simple Christmas Day sermon around the theme of humility. A little shorter than normal and I tried to be jargon free.

    Introduction—humility. Someone once said, “Swallow your pride occasionally, it’s non-fattening”. I wish on a day like today that fruit cake, chocolate and pavlova were non-fattening. One of my favourite humility sayings is, “Humility is not thinking less of yourself, its thinking of yourself ...read more

  • Crossing The Resurrection

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Apr 10, 2012
     | 2,126 views

    An Easter Sunday sermon

    Recently I came across a collection of the best last lines of books ever written: “Tomorrow, I’ll think of some way to get him back. After all, tomorrow is another day.” –Margaret Mitchell, Gone with the Wind (1936) But I reckon I got to light out for the Territory ...read more

  • Gazing At The Cross

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Apr 10, 2012
     | 2,622 views

    A Good Friday sermon

    A few years ago I witnessed a head on collision between two cars. The car about 300 metres in front of me collided head-on with a vehicle overtaking a truck in the opposite direction. I had a clear, unobstructed view of the incident. The cars collided head-on but off-centre. So they rotated when ...read more

  • Are We Serious About Hell? Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Sep 1, 2011
    based on 2 ratings
     | 2,836 views

    This talk examines two common alternatives to the traditional idea of hell: universalism and annihilationism.

    The bow of God’s wrath is bent, and the arrow made ready on the string, and justice bends the arrow at your heart, and strains the bow, and it is nothing but the mere pleasure of God, and that of an angry God, without any promise or obligation at all, that keeps the arrow one moment from ...read more

  • Accountability Rules Series

    Contributed by Mark Armstrong on Sep 1, 2011
     | 3,377 views

    A talk which explores the biblical theme of judgment
