The Violent Take it by Force; an open letter to the church

Most of us would not hesitate to defend a helpless person. If we see an elderly person fall down we would help them up. Or if we see a small child alone and lost in a city street, we would stop and call the authorities; it would be impossible for us to turn a blind […]

Why Forgive?

This is what forgiveness does… … it frees us! When we can see the offender as someone trapped in their own nightmare, a victim (because without Christ that is what we are) then we have better understanding. When we suffer for Christ, we suffer as Christ did, for a people who had no light or […]

A Strong Foundation
