Concerning Phaneroo (Part 2)

The death of Christ for the redemption of humanity is the gospel that rejoices the hearts of the redeemed. This redemption is Trinitarian. The Father decrees before the foundation of the world to redeem a people for Himself through His Son, not based on any merit of their own, but purely on the substance of Christ His Son, who would die to effect the ransom for their redemption (Eph 1:3-14). This work is produced in the believer’s heart by the Spirit of God, through regeneration, justification, sanctification, and glorification.

Why Cults Thrive in Uganda

In 2013, Conrad Mbewe of Kabwata Baptist Church in Zambia preached a Sermon titled ‘Are we Preachers or Witch-doctors?’ at the Strange Fire Conference, an annual Conference organized by Grace Community Church, Sun Valley, California. In his presentation, later published in a blog that can be found here, Mbewe makes an excellent diagnosis of the evangelical movement in Africa, most especially the popular charismatic churches.

The Relativism of Relativism 1

Relativism always begins with an appearance of wisdom. ‘Has God indeed said?’ (Gen 3:1). Relativism is the craftiest demonstration of folly. It questions the absolute truth of God, thereby relativizing His absolute decrees. ‘Has God said?’ is another way of saying, subtly ‘that is God’s opinion, I have my own which differs from His, and you know what; so, should you too!’

We all Worship

At the core, man is religious. To think of any man who is not religious in the sense that he does not worship is as absurd as trying to think of a non-thinking man. To be human is to automatically think, for not think is unthinkable. And as thinking is basic to humanity, so is worshiping. Every man is a worshiper. The question is who or what they are worshiping. God? A tree? Science? Reason?

The Uniqueness of Jesus Christ (Part 2)

In my previous article about the Uniqueness of Jesus Christ, I intended to respond to a brother from Tanzania who wrote to me asking about the character and work of Christ that sets Him apart, and why we ought to follow Him. In response I delighted in  writing a series of articles addressing this question that may prove helpful for many. These articles will not be exhaustive, but I hope they will stir up serious thought, that culminates in a personal relationship with Christ as Lord and Savior.
