Witnessing Christ through Sorrow and Pain

As an apologist, questions of pain and suffering are among the toughest I have attempted to address.

Then he is not omnipotent. Is he able, but not willing?...

福音特稿Part 2: 一个精心安排的计划—让王,代替死囚

耶稣是在一个犹太人重要的节日——逾越节——被钉十字架的。逾越节有上千年历史,源自于神把犹太人从埃及拯救出来的事件。当时,神要犹太人杀死一只羊,把羊血抹在门口。这样,当神审判时...

Review: The Whole Counsel of God – Why and How to Preach the Entire Bible

Few evangelicals today will question the importance of expository preaching. What is less clear, however, is our commitment to preach the whole Bible—every verse, every chapter and every book.

The Gospel and Ageing

What is the most polite way to refer to an old person? Have you noticed how the words we collectively use to refer to old people in the media and in private conversation keep changing? It’s a strange process. We start using a word or phrase, for example, ‘old man’, ‘old woman’...

In the mad rush to online church, many pastors are asking ourselves: “How can we make online church not just good but great? How can we make the online experience just as good as the personal experience?” Now it’s perfectly understandable why we want to be at our best: we want to continue seeing the sinner saved and saints sanctified...

Siapakah Yesus?

Ramai muda-mudi orang Kristian dan orang-orang Kristian yang baru keliru mengenai siapa Yesus sebenarnya.

Jimmy was fearful when he got home that evening. His parents knew that he’d been out with friends, but they didn’t know what he’d been doing with them. He approached his father in the living room. With no small amount of fear, he confessed to his father that he’d been attending the local Christian...
