Comment Normal service is resumed

It seems that, in a variety of situations, Christians throughout the UK are experiencing an increase in opposition to the Christian gospel. Of course, there has always been a price to pay for following Jesus Christ. But in the last few years, where once it was only the brave evangelist who would meet spiteful…

Comment God speaks; do we listen?

Evangelicals can never remind themselves enough of the centrality - not just importance - of Scripture. The Bible is the only book in which God has spoken (Hebrews 1:1-2). In no other place are the 'unsearchable riches' of Jesus Christ displayed and salvation found. The Scriptures are God's self-revelation in a verbal form. They…
