Crossroads. One.

Easter the pivot of human History!

Jesus came to die for our sins on the Cross/stake/tree, this was His choice and ultimate calling for us to be saved! He was the sinless perfect man, the Messiah of Israel wither accepted or not and the saviour of the world!

Without the shedding of His blood in that one final atonement, there can be no remission of sins! Jesus did this for all who would by faith believe in Him, confessing and repenting of our sins.

There is no other way to be born-again, to be saved from the destiny of destruction that the world in its own achievement is heading for!

2 Corinthians 3:4-6,  5:18-20,  Luke 22:20,  Ephesians 2:13,  Hebrews 12:26,  1 Peter 3:18.

I Patrick a Sinner! One.

Many claims on Him?

We now know that there were several Patricks sent to Ireland to convert the pagans to Christianity, but this Patrick was different in that he did come on a mission but rather as he says a slave!

Today the many traditions each place their own claim on him in relation to nationality, but it was Patrick who said later in life, ‘We Irish!

Patrick was a British-Romano Christian and his times have nothing to do with the Britain that has been existence this last thousand years! His family perhaps felt no need to return to Italy and stayed on working their lands, but Celtic pirate raids started to become more and more widespread and eventually Patrick was captured!

He tells from his writings that he was a rebel and most youth are to their parents? But he had some faith and this came to play in his mind and heart, when faced with the west and cold conditions he was expected to work in!

His whole life from these two sets of writings reveal and ordinary man, struggling to cope with the conditions around him like so many of us today!

2 Corinthians 4:1-5,  5:1-2,  1 John 4:10-11,  19.

Secular Humanism. Part-Two.

European and Western Concept?

What is on offer today is a denial of the power of God in personal faith, justification of sin is nothing new but it is now encompassed in a new fairer terminology! Christians of all descriptions are being made out to be mad, if they refuse to accept these new ideals?

But we are warned that the love of people will grow cold in the last days, coldness to the toleration of others beliefs over that of their own! We are not talking here about religious sectarianism, but rather a new form of a religion dressed up as secular!

If we believe in the death and resurrection of Jesus and know that He died for our sins and has set us free from the curse of legalism, we are born-again and free from anything that would block us from the love of God! Our conduct must be truthful and honest as we work out our salvation in these last days!

Matthew 24:12,  2 Corinthians 4:1-2,  Ephesians 5:2,  Jude 1:23.
