Religious Freedom. Part-One.

Christianity and Other?

There is a world history of Christianity clashing with other religions, because of our freedoms and their enforced legalism and idolatry? Many lands in Africa clash with Islam, but also with the many primitive religions and beliefs too some of which are nothing more than folklore?

Believers can get killed for their faith, for their failure to respect a certain prophet or a certain custom! Others do not like to see freedom from ritualism, from personality worship and from community control?

Isaiah 58:16,   Matthew 6:14,   John 8:32-33,   36,   Acts 13:46,   14:3,   22:28.

Mission. Part-One.

Past and Present.

We tend to think that this is not for our place, but going off to another land to share the ‘Christian Faith?’ After the events mentioned in Acts chapter two the Good News message of Jesus spread out then to the known Greek, Persian and Roman world, which in itself was quite big.

Many of those early believers paid with their lives within the Roman Empire for at least 300-years, being fed to the lions! But this message of Jesus death for the forgiveness of sins and His resurrection from the dead did not die away but continued to grow!

Africa and Britain saw the first believers arriving from 34AD to the influx by 126AD, but it is not known when the first buildings were erected for meetings came about?

Matthew 28:19-20,  Mark 16:15-16,  Luke 24:47-48,  Acts 1:8,  Romans 10:18,  Colossians 1:23.

Fanatcism and Terror-ism. Part-Two.

Afghanistan, Iraq and Syria.

They have a different way of looking at us and it is much more than being the infadel? They see that our culture is moraly unclean to what the Koran teaches. In fact they are living the Old Testament to its fulness in relation to the Patriarchs from Adam to Moses.

This is not a 6-7the century religion it is ancient! Are they wrong in what they believe and see or understand of us? We need to be very careful, becuase God used Babylon to Crush sinful Israel and He will use a God fearing people to punish a declining Christian world.

Isaiah 10:5,  Jeremiah 51:20,  1 Corinthians 6:9-10.

Xmass. Part-Three.

Miracles.

It would seem that today science and psychology have replaced faith and miracles of the bible. People will run to anyone for help, but not to God?

This is not totally true, many shools have abanonded the ‘Nativity play and yet those same people would take a Christian stance against Islam.

Thousands of people across the world, even in Europe and N-America will give their lives to jesus this Christmas and New Year!

Will You?

Psalm 106:10,  John 3:17,  Acts 16:30,  1 Corinthians 10:33.

Xmass. Part-One.

For Many..

The traditional Christmass is becoming very much now one without the baby in the crib as it is replaced by snowmen, fairy’s, angels, Santa and modern childrens characters. One could call this commercialism, when it is sadly really a road o securalism.

The west is determined to start a war with Russia over the Ukraine and yet it is modern Russia that is more Christian than the west and they remain determined to uphold their faith.

Psalm 12:3-4,  Acts 7:38.  1 Thessalonians 4:8,  Jude 1:8.

Christian Legacy. Part-One.

About two-thouand Years?

It is a natural state for us humans to always want to look back and think that the past was better than now, and so this is the same with Christianity.

The past was actually as hard as it is now to be a believer, but our advantage is that we are nearer to Eternity than the believers in Jesus day and the early Church.

Acts 2, Revelation 21:6,  22:13.

Stonehenge and Newgrange.

Solstice.

The midwinter festival has began many people will brave the elements to try to meet at these two famous sites, but there are also many more across Europe as well as these islands. People have always sought out a higher power and many mouments have been constructed around the world to show this connection with the stars, moon and sun.

But today the world has many ism’s of beliefe and unbellfe, there is really only one religion in the world which gives us any hope for this life and eternity and that is Christianity. All relgions expect something, they have big and little heads, which are either gods of the teachings of men/a man.

1 Corinthians 15,  Ephesians 2:12-16, 1 Timothy 1 :15-16.

Happy Christmass to all of you who read this blog. Many Thanks.
