This just in from Jerusalem.

Dear all, This just came in. It was reported at precisely 5:55am, the body of a well respected Rabbi who was accused of heretical teaching has been stolen. His followers who had been dejected just days ago have been reported to be in hiding. 6:30am it is reported that a crazy woman by the simple…

The God who refused to go home.

Many at times people who teach grace and reality of Jesus in us are accused for forgoing the Old Testament. I hope you don’t include me in that category. I love the Old Testament. I love the stories, the people and the honesty of the Old Testament. I mean where else can you find a…

It is not equal, it is far better.

I must say I am surprised by the varied reactions to my last note ““All” is ALL?” Some gave it an excellent “thumbs up”. Some got very upset. Some just misread and misinterpreted the note altogether. Let’s deal with this. Someone of you wrote in and said, “all” has to mean “all” all the time….

“All” means “ALL”?

Dear friends, We are often attracted by the elusiveness of having to believe all men will be saved. It is easy for us to be persuaded to believe an inclusion Gospel. while grace is inclusive, inclusion however is not grace. We must understand there are times, when the scripture mentions ALL, it speaks about the…

Satan and God reconciled?

A brief history of where the “all men are saved” teaching comes from… “Traditionally, the doctrine of Universalism was traced by Universalist historians back to the teachings of Origen of Alexandria (c.185-284), an influential early Church Father and writer. Origen believed in apocatastasis, the ultimate restoration and reconciliation of creation with God, which was interpreted by Universalists historians to mean the…

Inclusion, hell and Sonship.

Dear friends,    Does this verse tells us we are all saved and offsprings of God?   Ephesians 4:4-6 4 There is one body and one Spirit –just as you were called to one hope when you were called – 5 one Lord, one faith, one baptism; 6 one God and Father of all, who…

On tithing and the giving of ourselves.

Some of you have asked me for my thoughts on tithing. Well here they are nicely wrapped up by Paul Anderson Walsh’s wonderful note.  “It was not until a recent visit to my barber s shop that I realised the full extent of the problem. It was not so much the now relentless advance of…

Is faith crucial to salvation?

Do Acts 17:28 and 1 Timothy 4:10 teach us that faith is not necessary for us to be saved? I have been reading the writings of some grace believers who are now saying that it is not necessary for a believer to have faith in the finished work of Jesus in order to be saved…

Mark 5:35-36 While He was still speaking, some came from the ruler of the synagogue’s house who said, “Your daughter is dead. Why trouble the Teacher any further?” 36 As soon as Jesus heard the word that was spoken, He said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not…

  Denying yourself I have often received much questions and objections towards the teaching of grace and “resting in the finished work”, by being posed the question “but Jesus said “Deny yourself and take up your cross”. As such, many believers clam, we preach a “laxed gospel”.  Many…

Are we to worship Jesus? A brother wrote an interesting note today on our wall and stated that it is rather a tragedy that we have forgotten the Father in our worship. I do wholehearted agree with him. However he went on to say that ‘no where are…

What are the commands John asked us to obey in his letters?

It is imperative for us to realize that context is the most important thing in scripture understanding.  Often we read the letters of John we find ourselves stumbled in our the impossibilities he demands from us. Here’s one. 1Jo 2:3-4 3 And hereby we do know that we know him, if we keep his commandments….

Removing the poverty mentality from the Gospel.

Myths about Poverty Mentality. So often, we are told that Christians should have a mentality that wealth is not a good thing; that the gospel is not something that should be linked to prosperity. Yet I see the very same people who make such comments driving big cars and living in big houses. Don’t get…

Nobody does it better. Licence to Sin?

“Preaching we have been forgiven of all our future sins gives you license to sin” Really? Have you ever consider a very important truth? How many things do you have to do to become a sinner? One? You are right. Except that it is not your sin. Its’ Adam’s. It is NOT yours. You are…
