God's Will

Hi Ernest - I've not been around for a while - hence coming late to this conversation. I always look for your posts as they are always stimulating. You interpret 'Thy Will be done' quite differently to me and I couldn't put my finger on it. Essentially you seem to see it as a promise from you to God...

Forgiveness

Hi Beth I think of forgiveness as like a debt. Doing something wrong incurs a debt. Jesus takes our 'debts' on himself and pays them off for us. My debt isn't paid off as a result of anything I have done. It's a free and undeserved gift. The only thing I am called to do is to acknowledge my debt and...

An imitator

I hate to tell you if you don't already know but ichurch has an imitator site. I am hesitant to post a link (which may give them unwarranted help) but they are ichurch.co.uk and rank high (2 or 3) in the google search. Total garbage and spoofery unfortunately.

Woolwich

Hi Rolyn - thanks for your post. I'm sure Woolwich has been on all our minds and being honest with myself my first thoughts were not charitable or borne out of love. The events are a particular challenge because, however, misguidedly they were claimed in the name of religion. They add to a view in c...

Daughter going to Bangladesh

Not been to Bangladesh but did VSO in Nigeria many years ago. Would not have missed the experience for anything. My only advice is to be as willing to learn as to pass on what you know. Your daughter will gain at least as much as the Bangladeshis. [ Post made via Mobile Device ] http://www.i-church....

Is Google the new God?

Actually I wrote another article on this subject. Ten Commandments And Ten Ways To Break Them 1. Thou shalt have no other gods before me The Church of Google's claim that Google is the closest human kind have ever known to a God is a clear example of how we can put other things in the place where Go...

I am a Christian my wife is not. This can not be an uncommon situation but I find it is one not often addressed by the Church.

In the 4th century when all this got played out there were only Catholics. Most Protestant churches accept the Trinity as far as I know.
