Papal Visit – A Turning Point For UK Christians

The arrival of the Pope on UK shores has given a much needed spiritual lift to the nation which has been increasingly viewed abroad by its Catholic neighbours as the bad boy of Europe flirting with if not all out atheism then at least some form of agnosticism that leaves no room for God. The crowds who turned out for Benedict VI were surprisingly devout and eager for the loving grace of God and saw in the shape of the Holy Father a direct link to that. It has also allowed some good Christians to appear on our news screens promoting the good news, something that rarely happens at any other time.

Who Defines Success?

The word is as slippery and slithery as a wet fish, and means different things to different people. Our personal values are shaped by our family and society. And in that moulding process there is a range of influences. Western societies have high socio-economic values, and the closer you conform to these and acquire a high-status job, a lovely home, a family, cars and yachts, a second home by the lake, and whatever other trappings, then we’re beginning to reach success! (Or are we?) Your peers will congratulate you on having reached a pass mark in this mysterious entity – success.

Worship! Is It An Alabaster Flask Or A Rose?

Worship is an amazing place to live in, it is a different world to the world we live in, it is because worship allows us to get more and more like God when we spend more time with him. It allows us to know God more. So today the question that I pose is Worship more like an alabaster flask or a rose, think about it!

How to Identify If “Blessings” Are Genuine Or a Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing

Genesis 12 is very appropriate in today’s economic times. God told Abram to leave his country of Haran and set out for the land that God was going to give him. Abram moved, but allowed his own worries to lead him to make poor decisions. Although Abram was treated well, he was still disobedient. Let’s look at this scenario a little deeper to see how it can help us deal with this economy.

The End of the World, What to Look for

The Age is winding down. Satan is the God of this world. The Seven-Horned Beast with Crowns on his head is in charge of the natural realm. Even so, he cannot do anything that God does not allow him to do. And when we think about what God allows him to do we must take into consideration the whole theology of the Bible and the New Testament.
