  • Burnt-out offerings

    I’m in my 13th year of being a teacher. In the short time I have been fronting classrooms and marking essays, I feel like I have experienced a lot.

  • Invoking the name of God

    If you read my last article you will remember I spoke about the hysteria surrounding end times prophecies and dreams. Hundreds if not thousands of YouTube video dedicated to prophecies about ‘the rapture’ and that it was imminent.

  • Lazy rapture living

    Late last year a work colleague and I started discussing end-time theology. The discussion was centred around the rapture and whether Christians would be raptured before, during or after the tribulation.

  • When leaders fall

    How many of you have admired someone? What were those reasons? Was it their character? Their lifes achievements? Their political policies? Their teachings?

  • Jonah’s Justice!

    I have read the book of Jonah multiple times; we were all well acquainted with the story of ‘Jonah and the whale’ in Sunday School.

  • Just Pray

    The year was 2007, some of my friends and I were halfway through a 5-week trip in Canada and we had just finished a glorious 2 weeks at Big White Ski Resort.

  • Sin isn’t so bad?

    One of the greatest revelations for me was the moment I realised what I was saved from when I became a Christian, but it wasn’t until much later in my walk when I realised the impact of sin on creation and my own life.

  • The problem with space cows

    A number of years ago a mate and I were out and about doing some mountain biking and we were discussing the recent event of NASA landing the Mars rover on Mars. The conversation turned to the topic of other life out there and extra-terrestrials and I asked him the question. “How would it affect your faith if NASA found life on Mars?”

  • Worth the fight

    I have just come back from Year 9 camp. This year was a little harder than most, I was certainly feeling my age while doing our 3-day hike and it was clear to me that I was no longer one of the fast hikers.

  • The Image of God

    Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness. So God created mankind in his own image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them”
