The single Christian and romance

Stuart Burgess responds to Trevor Baker’s Evangelical Times (January 2017) Personal View of his book, God’s way for romance: getting back to biblical courtship, published by Day One (112 pages, £6.00; ISBN: 978-1-84625-497-0).

‘So, Ray, what does it mean to be born again?’ said the young man as he settled down on our settee in the living room. His question has remained a vivid memory to speaker and hearer alike for over 40 years. That conversation proved to be one of the final stages in Bob’s search…

Christianity stands or falls on the historical accuracy of Genesis

Thomas Huxley (1825–1895) was a prominent nineteenth century agnostic, and a friend and supporter of Charles Darwin. Regarding biblical authority, he wrote: ‘I am fairly at a loss to comprehend how anyone, for a moment, can doubt that Christian theology must stand or fall with the historical trustworthiness of the Jewish Scriptures…’ He continued: ‘If…

Gideons at Exeter University

We read in Judges 6-7 that God gave Gideon a vital task to fulfil with only a tiny number of men. So it was that, at the end of October 2016, an even tinier number of Gideons from local branches undertook the task of witnessing to the students of Exeter University and offering them…

Pure love

Christian, your body is for the Lord! It is the temple of the Holy Spirit, whom you have from God; and you are not your own (1Corinthians 6:19). And that mind of yours is not for just anything; it is for loving the Lord your God (Mathew 22:37). Uncleanness is not for you. You…

Right with God?

In the run-up to Christmas, Marks and Spencer were selling a children’s jumper on which was the slogan, ‘Dear Santa, define good’. The children who wore it probably wouldn’t like God’s definition, or they would never receive any presents. God’s definition not only reveals what is right, but that we are wrong. Christ our…

The life and legacy of William Bradford (1590-1657)

Puritanism has never been a popular ideology for most modern Westerners. Mention the word ‘Puritan’ or ‘Pilgrim Fathers’ to any American and the image comes to mind of a dour, black-garbed, Bible-thumping man. At best, someone might recall it was the Puritans that first made a substantial settlement in New England.  J. I. Packer…

On 20 October 2016, the Grace and Truth Christian Congregation, Rehovot, celebrated its 40th anniversary. It was an historic event, not only for this congregation, but also for the body of Christ in Israel.   Not many congregations in Israel were established before 1976, and this was certainly a sure sign of the faithfulness…
