Maintaining a Christian world-view

Every Christian should be a non-conformist: 'Be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind' (Romans 12:2). The transformation which the New Testament envisages is so radical that the Christian continually strives to bring every thought into captivity to the Lord Jesus. His world-view is sustained by…

The Best News Ever

There Is one true God In the first place, it proves that there is a God and that the God of the Bible is the true God. Reuben A. Torrey, who often spoke and wrote well on these themes, put it this way: 'Every effect must have an adequate cause ... and the only…

Indispensable signs of the Spirit

A friend phoned from England to ask if I knew where his vicar could stay in Toronto while he experienced the 'Toronto Blessing' at the Airport Vineyard.
