Sharing important aspects of the Christian faith


A warm welcome to "CHRISTIAN FAITH"! sticky icon

 

"CHRISTIAN FAITH" is an evangelicalnon-commercial website run by committed volunteers. Our site has the occasional blog and article but it’s more like a large evangelical filing cabinet with very extensive links. Here you will find, among other things, a large list of recommended mp3 sermons. You will also find LOOKOUT - quality, world-class articles on new religious movements.

Our main aim is to help you to grow in your relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ. Maybe for some, to actually find saving faith in Jesus. (What is faith?)

WHAT'S NEW AT ‘CHRISTIAN FAITH’! (#0093)

 

THIS IS WHAT WE HAVE FOUND FOR YOU THIS MONTH…

JUST GENES: A WORLDVIEW TOOL (pdf) by Peter Leslie (AFES) is a wonderful resource! "In your genes? It’s just a tool to get anybody thinking about what they believe or live for. We ask six big questions, present 5 possible answers and ask people to work out which answer best resonates with them. And to help stimulate the brain cells we make a few pithy comments and say a few words about Christianity. If words are not your thing you can look at some diagrams and work out which best portrays how you think and live."

BIBLE 101 (The Briefing). "If the Bible had a highlights reel, what passages would flash across the screen? In Bible 101, we’ll be taking a close look at 101 purple passages from the Bible that we think every Christian should know and understand."

And there is more... please read on...

 

Becoming a Mature Christian mp3

In proclaiming the fullness of Jesus the Messiah, Paul did not hesitate to admonish nor did he hesitate to teach. His ultimate goal was for every born again person who claims Jesus as their Lord to be “fully mature” in Christ. 

If you are not allowing yourself to be taught the truths of the Christian faith on a regular basis, then you are a foolish Christian. If you think you can mature in your faith without sound Biblical teaching, then you are wrong. You will not. In fact, you will deny yourself more and more valuable and essential insights into your true life in Christ. 

Do not remain an immature Christian!

Parenting can be very hard! mp3

Watching Bible-based movies sometimes can be a difficult experience – much like following the Parramatta Rugby League Club (if this means nothing to you - rejoice!).

I’m sure you all have watched a biblically themed movie only to, at times, shuffle in your seat and wince not a few times at the poor dialogue and especially the acting.

A movie that comes to my mind is “King David” which starred Richard Gere – as King David.

In my opinion it’s not really that good at all! It’s actually awful.

However, to be fair, there is one scene that remains memorable and it’s truly a sad scene. King David, having received news that his son Absalom had been killed, falls to his knees and emotionally laments publically, “O my son Absalom, my son, my son Absalom! Would I had died instead of you, O Absalom, my son, my son!” It was a sad, sad scene.

How did King David’s son Absalom die and why? What do we know about Absalom and what can we learn from him, his relationship with his father and what can we learn about ourselves? Finally, what can we learn about parenting?

"A Real Life Story - Transformation from Orphan to a Dreamer' by Brother Elisha

Nine years ago, an elderly woman brought a four years old little girl to me. Girl was pale, shy, looking so innocent and had no life on her face.

She had only one long gown which was torn out. She probably didn’t know where she was and why her grandmother brought her to me as she was so small and had no idea of what was going on.

Grandmother was in late 70’s. Grandmother started to tell me about the life of the little girl. The little girl lost both parents when she was three. Grandmother raised her as mother for one year.

After that she couldn’t even feed her as she was so old and couldn’t work. Both were living on the kindness of others in her village to fill their stomachs.

Grandmother was so worried about little girls’ future as she was in her last days. She wanted to find a place for the girl.

The Defeated Christian Life mp3

Humanly speaking, what does one do with a defeated and/or failed Christian life?

Last week I drove my daughter’s well-worn 1.6 litre Nissan Pulsar to the car wreckers to see if they would take it off my hands – that’s what we do with a car that has seen far better days.

Is this what we do with a Christian life that has seen better days? Drive it to the car wreckers – so to speak?

Psalm 51 is written by handsome wealthy king who attracted the attention of not a few women; married and unmarried. He had sex with a married woman and arranged for the husband to be 'terminated'. Eventually he was 'found out' and cried out for mercy and forgiveness.

So, did King David 'get off' with just a prayer? Fair question. Please listen to the message and find out...

 

FREE Audio Book for February: I DON'T HAVE ENOUGH FAITH TO BE AN ATHEIST

HURRY! ONLY A FEW DAYS TO GO!!

"I Don't Have Enough Faith To Be An Atheist argues that Christianity requires the least faith of all worldviews because it is the most reasonable.

The authors lay out the evidence for truth, God, and the Bible in logical order and in a readable, non-technical, engaging style.

A valuable aid to those interested in examining the reasonableness of the Christian faith, Geisler and Turek provide a firm challenge to prior beliefs of doubters and skeptics.' Christian Audio

On the anniversary of her death, one of the original homicide detectives reflects on a case which changed the nation.

Love to the Loveless MP3

In your quiet moments, have you ever considered changing jobs?

If so, what would you change to? A biologist maybe? Professional sportsperson? Teacher? The list is endless. What about a prophet? Would that be cool?

What do you think God may command you to tell other people? How about this: “Go, marry a whore, and get children with a whore, for the country itself has become nothing but a whore by abandoning Me.”

That's offensive!! Is it? You better read on and listen to this recent message...

'It's All About Him' mp3

It has often been said that “A teacher hasn’t taught until a student has learned,” which is attributed to the famous Christian educator Henrietta Mears - one of the most influential Christian leaders of the 20th Century.

But … I have, over a long period of time, wondered if that statement: “A teacher hasn’t taught until a student has learned,” is actually true.

If we play around with the statement we could end up with something like this:

“The Lord Jesus hasn’t taught until His disciples have learned.”

As Christians we believe that no-one, NO-ONE, in history, nor the present time, is as great a teacher than the Lord Jesus. It’s even still acknowledged in our secular culture that Jesus – at least - is considered a great teacher.

However, when we carefully read the gospels, we read that when the Lord Jesus conducted an assessment of His teaching He gave out, at times, pretty low grades to His students who were enrolled in the “Tradesmen to Disciples 101 Course”.

The world’s greatest ever teacher clearly had a difficult class!!
