  • The Martyr’s Cry Series

    Contributed by Dan Cormie on Aug 22, 2010
     | 2,013 views

    Anything old is seen as negative, traditions that once served as a backbone of stability are discarded as hindrances, leadership positions are going to innovators and rebels and the voice of time tested truth is exchanged for the noise of cultural demand.

    God is very good at confusing us and leaving our heads in a spin, but He knows what He is doing, even if we can’t figure it out. But eventually his plan becomes clear, either in the distant future (eternity) or in retrospect (in this life).

    Alistair Begg, one of my favourite preachers who spoke daily in Chicago when I was there in May, shared a story from a pastor’s conference he held at his church last year.

     | 2,723 views

And Satan was working hardest through the religious leaders, not to stop miracles and such, but to stop ...read more

     | 2,860 views

    The would-be servant of God, whether waiting at table, ushering at the door, distributing to the poor, or preaching the gospel, must be of a blameless character and reputation.

    THE CHRISTIAN CHARACTER OF STEPHEN THE MARTYR Acts 6:1-15 It is interesting to commemorate one particular saint who gave his name to a Street, a Road, a Church, and a bench (!) in Norwich, and I dare say in other cities too.
