  • The Martyr’s Cry Series

    Contributed by Dan Cormie on Aug 22, 2010
     | 2,015 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).

    The Martyr’s Testimony (Acts 7:51-8:4) 1. According to an AP article yesterday (Nov. 8), "WASHINGTON – The nation’s jobless ranks zoomed past 10 million last month, the most in a quarter-century, as piles of pink slips shut factory gates and office doors to 240,000 more Americans with the ...read more

    —The Martyrs Mindset— "Let those of us who are mature think this way, and if in anything you think otherwise, God will reveal that also to you."—Philippians 3:15 We find quite often nowadays in the news, stories like: —'3 men summarily executed by Saudi authorities for converting to ...read more

  • Leaders & Martyrs Series

    Contributed by Sean Harder on Oct 25, 2013
     | 2,725 views

    Stephen brings up eight charges against his accusers. His sermon was what ultimately led to his death.

    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. Stephen is rightly acknowledged as the first Christian martyr, a ...read more
