Christian Fundamentals: Love Marks Christian Reality

We have considered God’s love in us from a negative perspective in a previous post, Walking in God’s Light, and found: “Whoever hates his brother…walks in the darkness.” (1 Jn.2:9) In the Christian life we don’t refuse fellowship with others. “If we claim to be without sin we deceive ourselves…” (1 Jn.1:8) In the Christian life we don’t deny our sinful nature….read more →

LDS General Conference October 2016: Only Believe

As we listen in on the 2016 semi-annual General Conference of the Mormon Church we remember how Mormons sound like us but believe very differently. When you are listening in on a group to which you don’t belong it is important you hear what group members hear. The temptation is to import the language of their world into your own,…read more →

Christian Fundamentals: Who is Jesus?

In this series on fundamentals we are looking at the gospel in John’s letters. Last time we looked at how we walk in the light of God’s. This is the same John who wrote the gospel.

Testimony: The Lord’s Message Rang Out From You…

This time, like all times, is a very good one if only we know what to do with it. Our world is ready to hear the gospel. Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, Wiccans, Atheists, Agnostics, Satanists, Moonies, Scientologists, etc. are all ready to hear the gospel. You don’t believe it? I understand. It is the nature of Christians to believe we are…read more →

John Cramphorn – formerly involved in the occult

Prologue Trapped in a spiritual battle. He went ballistic; he was so annoyed and angry he turned glowing red in colour as if flames of fire were coming from every orifice. In front of my very eyes, he changed into this unrecognisable creature of pure evil and hatred. Hatred just emanated from every part of his body, as I stood…read more →

Judy a Former Jehovah’s Witness

Growing-up I was the eldest in a family of seven, and until I was about ten years old I was very quiet and shy. As a result I used to be bullied – until my mum taught me how to fight, then I was never bullied again. By age eleven I was smoking, had become a skinhead, became involved with…read more →

Janet a Former Mormon

MY JOURNEY OUT OF MORMONISM AND INTO THE ARMS OF THE TRUE JESUS “You’re playing with fire”, the voice inside my head said. I had just sat down in a Mormon ward for the first time in 21 years. I ignored the warning voice and the service began. How could a Christian woman who had spent the last 20+ years…read more →

Robin – Former Follower of Armstrong

From a tiny child I believed in God. I cannot remember a time when I did not believe that God was there, but as a tiny child – of course – I knew nothing about Jesus. The earliest event which could be called a ‘religious experience’ occurred when I was about 4 years old. It was a warm summer’s day…read more →

Former member of Brahma Kumaris

At the request of the writer of this testimony no names are given however the original is held at head office. Lured by their offer of “peace in a peace-less world” I entered Brahma Kumaris out of curiosity, and a desire to find a philosophy that made some kind of sense in a world posing very difficult questions. Brahma Kumaris…read more →
