  • Thomas - Vilified By Reputation Series

    Contributed by Allan Quak on Dec 19, 2005
    based on 17 ratings

    It is so easy to characterise ourselves and others on the basis of past actions or occasions when sin has prevailed. The way Jesus deals with Thomas reminds us that we should not be judged on the basis of our reputation, but on the basis of Christ’s grac

    Message John 20:24-29 “Thomas … vilified by reputation” We like to put people into a box don’t we? To be able to look at someone and feel that we have a measure of who they are. We see a single mum … and all too quickly we make a presumption about the sort of person she is. We discover more

    This is part six of a seven-part series on Christ’s disciples and the principles of discipleship. This message focuses on Philip and Thomas and was delivered by Pastor Johnny Green.

    I love this series on the disciples and on The Twelve. It just shows that God can use ordinary people. How many of you enjoyed that message during this series? What I learned through life and what I really like about this series is learning that ordinary people are so messed up. Have you more

    Our purpose as a Church is to demonstrate the power of the gospel in the way we live together in unity.

    He was a twin, but we don’t know anything about his brother; he was cautious, yet ready to walk into danger if that’s where his master was going; he was the one who was prepared to admit his ignorance if he didn’t understand something; he was a cynic, or a realist, depending on how you look at it, more

  • Living With Your Doubts

    Contributed by John Lowe on Mar 31, 2013
    based on 1 rating

    Thomas has been given a fairly difficult stereotype through the centuries because he is often referred to as doubting Thomas, but I don't believe that the title truly fits this man. So let's take a few moments to clear the air and see what we really know

  • Seeing And Believing

    Contributed by H.b. Charles Jr. on Aug 8, 2012
    based on 9 ratings

    "Seeing and Believing" is a message on how an encounter with the resurrected Christ turned doubt to faith for Thomas. It teaches that saving-faith in the risen Savior is a choice, a gift, and a blessing.

    SEEING AND BELIEVING John 20:24-29 THOMAS is one of the well-known disciples of Jesus, even though very little is known about him. Matthew, Mark, and Luke each mention him only once, listing him one of the twelve disciples. Everything we know about Thomas is found in the Gospel of John, which more

  • Thomas: The So Called Doubter. Series

    Contributed by William D. Brown on Apr 2, 2014

  • Dealing With Doubt

    Contributed by Clair Sauer on Apr 23, 2014
    based on 1 rating

    Christians deal with doubt everyday, particularly as it relates to the resurrection story. But a look at the way Christ handles the doubt of his followers should be a source of faith.

    One of the things many of us preachers enjoy and appreciate is the opportunity to participate in Study Groups that help us prepare our weekly sermons. It is a place to bounce ideas off one another, to share insights and illustrations, to recommend good books and resources for sermon preparation. A more

  • Faith And Doubt In Between

    Contributed by Jon Lipka on Apr 29, 2014

    During our life, from baptism and going home to the Lord, we live "in between" faith and doubt. But not all doubt is bad, and it can be used to draw us closer to God.

    What is our motto? “A believing church in a doubting world.” St. Thomas the Disciple is a church that believes in the Lord Jesus Christ. What does that—believing in Jesus Christ—mean? Isn’t that the real question? Lots of churches, real and so-called, profess some more
