Does the Bible say that Jesus is God?

Almost all world religions have some respect for Jesus. According to Islam He was a prophet; according to the Baha’i faith He was a “manifestation” of God; according to Hinduism He was a perfect example of “self-realisation”; according to Sikhism He was a holy man.

And the world will be as one
John Lennon (1971)
John Lennon invites us to imagine what it would be like if there were no heaven or hell. Let’s do just that.

Death wish

In Ireland we have seen the referendum result greeted with carnival-like glee. Just remember they are celebrating the legal right they now have to kill the most innocent and defenceless of the human race.

A person's a person, no matter how small.

There is a referendum this Friday in the Republic of Ireland on the issue of abortion. We could all learn an important lesson from Dr Suess.

"That's interpretation!"

I had a great chat yesterday with a man who was very friendly and willing to talk about the gospel and the evidence for it.

Good news about the bad news

The gospel doesn't cater to our feel-good factor, massage our ego or cater to our pride. It tells us we are guilty, hell-deserving and helpless to do anything about it. This is one reason why the message of the gospel is hated and rejected by so many. But this teaching about our sinfulness is actually good news. Here's why:
