What will it take for us to stop listening to celebrities and find out for ourselves what it means to be saved

How can a non-Christian acknowledge or accept they're lost or know that being 'saved' really means?

I recently heard a talk by Nancy Alcorn of Mercy Ministries describing the lost...

There are many sheep in Australia and towards the end of the day typically we would see one sheep with his head down eating grass and the rest of the sheep have walked away and are then taken to an enclosure. The lone sheep eating, lifts up its head, can't see all the other sheep and says to itself, "oh I'm lost".

It's the same with people who are busy doing their lives, working, learning, looking after the children and so on, that when they look up day to say oh I'm lost!

We have to get to a point where we understand the basics and are prepared to learn the promises of God

Getting Right With God

Everyone wants life to be plain sailing with plenty of nice surprises along the way. No one plans or expects bad things to happen, but we all know they do.

The trouble is, there are to few explanations as to how we can journey through this life and when something does happen, we rarely know how to deal with it.

I wonder what takes place in our minds that makes us want to change laws, morality and society

Comment in Context: Assisted Suicide or Abortion

We cannot play God, nor should we begin to think that we can even comment. Jesus told us we would do greater things than he. That included healing.

Is the collective unbelief worse now than it was in comparison to Jesus’ time? Are our leaders training us into believing we're powerless in every area of faith?

Comment in Context: Apparently 1-in-50 priests are pedophiles

God knows it is Satan who causes us to sin which is why he is able and does forgive us

Comment in Context:  Apparently 1-in-50 priests are pedophiles

If Satan wanted to upset multiple generations in an attempt to turn them away from God, the easiest strategy is to get a priest to act on his command.

Yes, if they are guilty of crimes they should be removed from society to a place where they cannot harm anyone else. However, we should also be forgiving them as we're not to judge. Only God can do this.
