A great resource for every Christian

As a young man, I was privileged to know Bryn Jones personally. A warm and friendly man from a small town in the valleys of Wales, he impacted tens of thousands of lives over the many years of his ministry and played  a significant role in shaping the church that we see today. I regularly meet ministers from many denominations who remember Bryn fondly and still talk about the positive effect his ministry had on them.

I am delighted to see that many of his audio and written teachings have been compiled onto a website and have been made available to the public. Go to http://www.theradicalchurch.com/#/home

Tell me what YOU know

I came across an amusing quote the other day from the famed American writer Ralph Waldo Emerson. He said “I hate quotations. Tell me what you know.” The reason I found it amusing is because Emerson himself is one of the most quoted writers I know of, and rightly so, as he made some astute and pithy observations on life. This particular remark I found to be extremely perceptive and should be well noted by Christian leaders today, especially those who consider themselves intellectual or academic.

the truth...can you handle it?


    

"He swears to his own hurt and does not change" 
Psalm 15 :4 (NASB)


Over the last few weeks the radio airwaves seem to have been dominated by a survey carried out by Essex University on the current state of British morals, particularly focussing on basic honesty in the general population. Faced with ten simple questions such as "would you buy property knowing that it was stolen?" or "Is it acceptable to knowingly break the speed limit?"  it seems that people in Britain are less honest today than they were ten years ago.
