Why do we need Jesus as our Saviour?

Why do we need Jesus as our Saviour?

A lady once asked, “What have I done that is so bad that God would send me to hell?” Do you ask this same question? Do you see yourself as being good because you try to live a good life and even abide by the Ten Commandments as best as possible? Do you consider yourself a good person not worthy of God’s eternal wrath and eternal damnation? Among those who willfully do not follow the teaching of the Bible or…

Does God want people to go to hell?

Does God want people to go to hell?

It has been said that God selects, or in other words, elects people. As a result, those whom He does not elect, go to hell. It is further argued that if God did not want people to go to hell, He would save them, would He not? Scripture is used to defend this viewpoint, or doctrine, but the problem that one has is that you cannot defend a position by ignoring what the rest of Scripture says. Additionally, God’s nature…

King Solomon versus Paul the Apostle – an analysis

King Solomon versus Paul the Apostle – an analysis

King Solomon and the apostle Paul are two men in Scripture, one from the Old Testament and one from the New, who played significant roles in the outworking of events that shaped history.

The Faltering of Fathers

The Faltering of Fathers

Very often we have a superficial view of the role and influence of a father towards his children. Fathers themselves many times see their role as just one of authoritarian rule without actually stopping to consider the intricacy, profoundness and in-depth functionality that God has placed on the shoulders of those who father children and are responsible for their upbringing. A father’s accountability before God has never changed, for God does not change, nor His principles, statutes or commands. A…

The Faithfulness of the Father

The Faithfulness of the Father

In Matthew 27:46 it is recorded, “And about the ninth hour Jesus cried out with a loud voice, saying ‘Eli, Eli, lama sabachthani?’ that is , ‘My God, My God, why have You forsaken Me?’” The very cry invokes a sense of agony and anguish, and well it should, for it compasses in totality the love of Christ – the width and length and depth and height of Christ’s love which passes knowledge (Ephesians 3:17–19). No-one will ever be able…

The True Gift – a Christmas message for unbelievers

The True Gift – a Christmas message for unbelievers

The True Gift Jesus said that it is not the healthy who need a doctor, but the sick and that He had not come to call the righteous, but sinners to repentance.1 It is sinners who need to hear the gospel of salvation, not the righteous. Jesus loved the sinners, and it was the sinners, the lost, the destitute and the sick whom He loved and sought. But allow me to let you in on a truth; every one of…

The importance of purity for God’s people – Part 2

The importance of purity for God’s people – Part 2

[From Part 1] The caveat, the conduct and the consequence “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no-one will see the Lord. See to it that no-one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many. See that no-one is sexually immoral (a fornicator), or is godless like Esau, who for a single meal sold his inheritance rights as the oldest. Afterwards,…
