Jesus told a story about a rich man and a poor man, which opens a window into the after-life. Two men die. The poor man goes to be with the patriarch Abraham in heaven, but the rich man goes to 'hades'. A conversation follows between the rich man and Abraham, held across 'a great…

The best life

I was born in Kenya, the fifth of twelve children. I trained as a doctor in Nairobi and came to the United Kingdom in 1994 for further training and to broaden my horizons. I hope to go back to Kenya soon and offer my expertise to my people. I first became aware of Christianity…

The new birth

During the course of our Lord's ministry on earth, he came into contact with many fascinating characters. Nicodemus was one of the most interesting among them. He is identified as a Pharisee, a ruler of the Jews. We know quite a bit about the Pharisees from the Bible record, as well as from historical…

Slaughtering the innocents

The events surrounding the birth of Christ were not all light and joy. Driven by fear and envy, King Herod tried to eliminate the competition by killing all male children under two in the vicinity of Bethlehem. That gruesome episode has become known as 'the slaughter of the innocents'. It could never happen today.…

Where was God?

Whatever happens in the next ninety-eight years, 11 September 2001 will have a lasting place in the history of the twenty-first century. As we all know, it was the day on which religious fanatics crashed two hijacked commercial airliners into the twin towers of New York's World Trade Centre and another into the Pentagon,…

A changed life

I began life on a farm in Kenya, but when I was five my mother died. The Second World War had just begun, so my father set off for England to join the army. He left me in a Roman Catholic convent in South Africa, where I was educated until the end of the…

Jesus Christ – the only way to God

We know ... we know ... we know ... These two words recur constantly in a letter written by the apostle John and found towards the end of the New Testament (it is called '1 John' because he wrote two other letters). We live in an age marked by moral and spiritual malaise and…

Two lost sons

The story of the 'prodigal' son is well known. Its human elements of discord, rebellion, sorrow and joy are repeated in many homes in our own day. One son wants to go his own way regardless of his father's feelings. The other son seems loyal to the father, but appearances are deceptive. The younger…

No longer afraid

A year ago, as a single mother on a low income, I was fearful about the future. Today, with all the trouble in the world, I would probably have been even more so. But in between something happened to change all that. I became a real Christian. I was born and brought up in…

Missionary Spotlight – Christmas at Bellavista

Christmas conjures up pictures of Christmas carols, bright lights and tea around a crackling fire. But Bellavista prison! What a nightmare! Colombia, a land torn apart by evil men: drug dealers, assassins and guerrillas. Bellavista was once the most feared prison in Colombia, where notorious criminals ruled.

A sense of urgency

I came to a personal knowledge of the Lord Jesus Christ on 11 April 1984 at the age of thirteen. I was attending a typical 'church camp' in Yorkshire for teenagers and 'twenty-somethings'. Quite naively I had thought that sixteen would be a good age to 'become a Christian'. It was on my list…

God to the rescue

For two thousand years Christians have recognised that the words of the Bible (from Genesis to Revelation) are words inspired by the living God. All his words are reliable and true. Here Paul is speaking about God's Son coming to earth as a human being with a mission. But you might well be thinking:…
