    Contributed by Denn Guptill on Dec 8, 2003
    based on 20 ratings
     | 1,500 views

    If you stop and really think about the Christmas story it’s rather bizarre, how come?

    The Absurdity of Christmas Imagine that you are standing out in your driveway marvelling at the fact that it’s the first weekend in December and you haven’t had to shovel yet. In your imagination you do not live in Cape Breton or New York, suddenly an UFO lands in the middle of your front lawn ...read more

    There are many voices crying out for our attention in this hectic and fast-paced world in which we live. We must learn to discern which voice is important and which ones are not.

    based on 9 ratings
     | 4,547 views

    It is impossible to study the Easter Story without studying Barabas. However, this interesting character deserves careful study on his own. He was all the Bible said he was and more, yet, he serves as a type of every sinner who is set free because Christ

    Contributed by David Smith on Oct 25, 2007
    based on 11 ratings
     | 10,753 views

    I do personally believe that the greatest thing that holds people back from following Jesus, and that so often holds us back from truly giving ourselves to Him, is fear.

    Those of you who tune in regularly to my online forum will know that there’s been a lot of discussion lately about Christopher Hitchens’ new book, "God is Not Great - how religion poisons everything". The publishers, Allen and Unwin, had sent me a review copy that I passed on to someone else on ...read more

    The title says it all.

    Well it won’t be long now. Just eight more days and it will be Christmas Eve and then we all know what happens then right? That’s right, Santa comes. Whether we like to admit it or not the primary figure in most homes this Christmas won’t be Jesus it will be Santa. And we can rant and rave about ...read more

    Contributed by David Smith on Nov 19, 2007
    based on 1 rating
     | 1,009 views

    It’s very graphic - the book of Hosea - and full of passion. For what is at stake, Hosea believes, is not simply a nation that is breaking a few commandments, but rather an ...

    "Plead with your mother, plead - for she is not my wife, and I am not her husband - that she put away her whoring from her face, and her adultery from between her breasts; lest I strip her naked and make her as in the day she was born, and make her like a wilderness, and make her like a parched ...read more

    Contributed by David Smith on Oct 24, 2007
    based on 14 ratings
     | 14,514 views

    Following Jesus: It’s long hours, hard work, costly, and a little bit crazy, but would we ever consider changing positions and serving someone else? Not a chance!

    I thought that I finally had a totally positive sermon for you today! I’ve been under rather trenchant criticism of late for repeatedly giving sermons focused on the theme of judgement and on the hard path of discipleship, and I admit that I have been looking for that text, "Come to me, all ye ...read more

  • Easter Day (Matthew 28:1-7 )

    based on 4 ratings
     | 2,922 views

    The disciples look for the body of Jesus, but He is not there! He has already gone on ahead of them somewhere, just as He continues to keep moving beyond our reach!...

    When I went to seminary - to Moore College in Newtown - there was a resident chapel there known as the Cash Chapel (named after the guy who donated it, not after how he paid for it). Now when people set up a church building or a chapel, they tend to design it with the communion table at the centre, ...read more

  • "Omfort, Give Comfort To My People"

    Contributed by Joe Burke on Jan 17, 2007
    based on 3 ratings
     | 645 views

    Jesus is not shocked or intimidated by our sins.

    “COMFORT, GIVE COMFORT TO MY PEOPLE, SAYS YOUR GOD, SPEAK TENDERLY” (Isaiah 40:1-2) When we look around at our condition in the world and especially in the USA, it’s hard to believe that Jesus is speaking tenderly to us. It’s much easier to believe that the wrath of God is just around the ...read more

  • God Encounters: Ezekiel (Religious Experience Vs. Religious Action) Series

    Contributed by Wesley Bishop on Jul 24, 2004
    based on 45 ratings
     | 4,651 views

    This is about Ezekiel’s God encounter. It explores the difference between religious experience and religious action. Religious EXPERIENCE means nothing without ACTION.

    Read Ezekiel 1:4-3:15. This is a bizarre vision. Not all God encounters are alike. We see here two things: Religious Experience (ch. 1) and Religious Action (chs. 2 & 3). What is the difference between the two? * Religious Experience is… In chapter 1, we see Ezekiel’s strange religious ...read more
