10 Things Science cannot do (Logically Faithful)

Get up close and personal! View, very closely, a papyrus fragment of St John's Gospel, Chapter 18, verses 31-33, in which Christ appears before Pilate. It was discovered in Upper Egypt, possibly at Oxyrhynchus. It is part of a codex, and is the earliest known fragment of the New Testament in any language. It was acquired by the John Rylands University Library at Manchester in 1920.

FREE Audio-book: 'Everyone's a Theologian' by Dr. RC Sproul

Whenever Christian Audio offer a free audio-book of some significant substance we let you know!

This one is simply awesome (apologies for using that word!). Great book by a great author: 

Everyone’s a Theologian: An Introduction to Systematic Theology.

For this month only (February 2015) you can access it for free here.

Please do!

"This book is anything but a dry discussion of minute points of doctrine. Dr. Sproul, demonstrating his trademark ability to make complex subjects easy to understand, surveys the basic truths of the Christian faith, reminding us once more of what God is like and of what He has done for His people in this world and the next." Ligonier Ministries

Tea for Untouchables

"I want to share a childhood incident which made a huge impression on my heart. It happened when I was doing my university degree, I was about 19 years ago. One day I went to a little far away village to attend a wedding. I went to small village restaurant to have a cup of tea. I ordered tea, lifted a teacup to my mouth and took a sip of delicious Indian masala tea."

The Historicity of the Patriarchs Matter!

"What's the big deal about the ancient patriarchs of the Old Testament?" some may ask.

"Who cares if they existed or not - what does it really matter?"

Matter? Matter?

It matters a great deal. In fact, Stephen Cracknell suggests this: "The historicity of the patriarchs is absolutely and unequivocally critical to Christians.  It is our SALVATION which depends on them being historical realities."

That's a big call! Why does he believe this?

NEW POLL: Genesis 1 is predominantly 'HISTORY'

We have just started a new poll based on the statement: Genesis 1 is predominantly 'HISTORY'

What do you believe to be 'the truth'?

Do you agree with Tim Keller who says, ""To account for evolution we must see at least Genesis 1 as non-literal."

Or do you agree with Rick Phillips who believes "Genesis 1 is a historical narrative that intends to set forth a sequence of events."

Or, are you unsure?

Please enter your 'vote' on our new poll on the right-hand side of this website ... or here.
