Charles Spurgeon on Tithing

Lined up today toe to toe are two camps of people when it comes to giving. In the one corner are those who legalistically tithe, do so out of fear, and believe everyone must tithe because God demands it. In the other corner are those who say, "We are not under the law of tithing so we don't need to do it." Often these people either don't give to God's house at all, or give very small amounts.Spurgeon, as so often seems to sit right in the middle and challenges both groups. Read the whole … [Read more...]

What should we beware of?You can watch the video above or download the notes here: Authority vs Internet-inspired anarchy … [Read more...]

Gospel Confidence: Do you really want your church to grow?

The second in my series of talks on Evangelism in a Post-Chritian World is called: Gospel Confidence: Do you really want your church to grow?. It is my contention that many of us are actually secretly not that keen on our church growing. If this is true, then we are not that keen on people becoming Christians. There is something wrong if that is the case. In this talk I encourage us to renew our passionate conviction for the gospel, and dare to believe that Jesus meant what he said when he … [Read more...]

Frank Viola is an increasingly dear friend of mine, even though we have yet to meet in the flesh. I look forward to that day. I do not always agree with Frank on everything, but I trust you have friends like that too. But there is no doubt in my mind that in terms of diagnosing the many problems in the Established Church there are few who are generally as on the button as him.Today I wanted to share a handful of statements from a recent post of his which he simply entitled "You are not … [Read more...]

What follows is an extract from my book Hope Reborn and is used by permission of the publisher.When Peter was asked "What must we do to be saved?" his reply outlined four steps to begin your Christian journey. The first, repentance is often also described as believing in Jesus, and is explained in another section of the book entitled, How to Become a Christian.MAKE A PUBLIC DECLARATION OF YOUR NEW FAITH I … [Read more...]
