Learning to have a Quiet Time

Learning to have a Quiet Time
Extract from chapter 6 of my book “Christianity in Simple English” If you do not eat, you starve. It is not complicated! I sometimes watch the reality series called “Survivor” and especially in the earlier series, I could see the people literally waste away as they tried to survive on very little food. People in ...

How to pray

How to pray
Extract from chapter 5 of my book “Christianity in Simple English” When we pray we address our prayers to God. Now Jesus taught us to pray to the Father, so most of the time when I pray, I address God the Father. There are times when I also pray to Jesus and there are times when ...

How to read Bible
Extract from chapter 4 “Christianity in Simple English” Do you find the Bible boring? Be honest now. If you do, you are in the vast majority. Most people find that if they cannot sleep at night, the best thing to do is count sheep or to read the Bible. That is of course if they ...

Is hell really a lake of fire?

Is hell really a lake of fire?
People often question whether hell is a real place. Well statistically speaking, if heaven is real, there is a very high likelihood that hell is also real.

When the Bible says the dead in Christ shall rise, what does that mean?
We have just all enjoyed the Easter holidays all around the world, where the Church celebrates the death and resurrection of Jesus.

What does it mean? “walk by faith and not by sight”

2 Corinthians 5:7 is one of my favorite verses in the Bible. It is so simple and yet so complicated. It is so powerful and yet so difficult all wrapped up together. So today we need to unwrap this and discover just how we are supposed to do this. The Bible often gives these commands ...

Why I believe Jesus rose from the dead

Why I believe Jesus rose from the dead
When the Jews called on Pilate to crucify Jesus, they were not willing to accept any other outcome. They wanted Jesus gone, dead and buried once and for all, so that this “imposter” in their eyes, could stop doing damage.

3 days in Hades

3 days in Hades
One of the questions many people have is what happened to Jesus when he died? Michael Houdmann’s article explains really well:  “1 Peter 3:18-19 states, “For Christ died for sins once for all, the righteous for the unrighteous, to bring you to God. He was put to death in the body but made alive by ...

If Jesus never died…

If Jesus never died...
If Jesus never died, there would be no way we would ever get into the family of God. Sacrifices had proved to be of little use, because it required men to be involved. The problem with sin that caused a separation from God was that it was a spiritual; problem, not an earthly problem. Men ...

Christianity and the Easter Bunny 2

Christianity and the Easter Bunny
My daughter still loves to look for Easter eggs on Easter weekend. For many Christians this pagan tradition is taboo and they would fiercely oppose families like ours which see nothing wrong with it. My daughter is both very smart and very naive and I just love the combination. Until a few years ago I ...
