    Father Dave’s sermon on Paul, the preacher of the Gospel of Jesus, communicating with a group of persons who have never heard of Jesus. How did he go about it? And what is wrong with the ’Jesus is the answer to all your problems’ approach?

    "Now while Paul was waiting for them at Athens, his spirit was provoked within him as he saw that the city was full of idols." (Acts 17:16) Ange and I have been to Athens, as I suspect many of you guys have also. We went for less pious reasons than St Paul. We went as the Australian ...read more

    We should not be surprised that the gospel is opposed. We’d like to think that everyone will just accept this wonderful news, but that is not the case. Let’s look at the faces of that opposition.

    Passage: Acts 17:1-33 Intro: One of the recurring themes of Acts is opposition. 1. mostly from the Jews, but others as well. 2. it was as well as recurring theme in the life of ministry of Christ. 3. we can draw this principle; that where the gospel goes, opposition will arise in one form or ...read more

    The Creed says that we believe in "God the Father Almighty". Do we really?

    French philosopher Blaise Pascal observed: "In every person’s life there is a God-shaped vacuum." Each of us tries to fill that vacuum with a god of some sort. Christians are almost atheists. There are thousands and even millions of gods we DON’T believe in. When someone tells you that ...read more

    We can connect unbelievers to God by understanding their context, by making a connection, by communicating in their language, and by presenting a relevant gospel message that challenges them to make a decision to follow Christ.

    based on 19 ratings
     | 5,218 views

    The Apostle Paul’s message to the men of Athens at the Areopagus gives us a model for sharing Christ with others. We start with their natural knowledge of God and transition to the revealed knowledge of God.

    What is the “natural knowledge” of God? Since our “examination / confirmation Sunday” is just over a month away I hope that one of our confirmands can answer that question. What is the “natural knowledge” of God? The “natural knowledge” of God is what all people know about God from nature and ...read more

Imagine this is you, not in Athens, but in New York or Paris or Rome or Berlin? How would you be feeling? Like you couldn’t wait to get out and start exploring? ...read more

    Many Believers are falling into one of Satan’s oldest tricks. They are allowing what is very clearly declared and known from Scripture to be held captive by what they, personally, don’t know.

    Over time, questions are expressed whether as a direct inquiry or by many other means. Some of these questions have a direct effect on our Christian life, our Bible knowledge and the church function. Because our series on Redemption has been interrupted by vacation, and other things, I thought ...read more
