I can’t believe that … (3) miracles can happen

So Christianity is full of miracles. The gospels say that Jesus performed many miracles, like healing people of their diseases and walking on water. Christians today believe that God can work miracles in response to their prayers. And, of course, the central event in Christianity – the resurrection of Jesus – is a miracle. So if miracles can’t happen then Christianity is in trouble.

But why…

Sunday 7 September service: Imitate prophets and Paul

I Can’t Believe That … (2) God would allow children to suffer

How could a loving God allow an innocent child to suffer? Surely he cares enough to prevent the suffering (if he didn’t care, he wouldn’t be very loving).

Or could God have good reasons to allow such suffering?

Philippians 1:3–6 – Partnership in the Gospel

Bijbelvorsers:

Making church we are better to get our hands dirty trying to build something up instead of waiting until shall happen. Every day we should work as hard as we can to forward the message, warning people the end is near, as if it could come tomorrow.

Like the apostle Paul was confident we do not have to be afraid professing the truth and trying to build communities where people come…

Verzoening en Broederschap 4 Deelgenoten in Christus

Verzoening en Broederschap 4 Deelgenoten in Christus

De oprichting van het ene lichaam was een direct gevolg van Jezus zijn dood. Het Griekse woord voor “fellowship,” “broederschap” of “gemeenschap“, koinonia, wordt gebruikt buiten het Nieuwe Testament om te verwijzen naar de gezamenlijke delen van een gemeenschappelijk eigendom van mensen. Wij zijn “in gemeenschap” met elkaar op grond van onze relatietot een groter geheel, waarin we deel van uit…
