This December season we have the privilege of hearing from guest speakers, Pastor Andrew Yeo, Pastor Lim Lip Yong, Rev. Dr. William Wan as well as our very own Pastor Alywin and Pastor Tiak. Join us and listen in for an exciting word from all our speakers.
Most people, whether religious or not, have the desire to be good. The problem is that our idea of goodness is fuzzy and our approach to goodness unworkable. God alone is truly good and he has revealed to us how we can be good like him. It’s not what you think.
If you are looking for a sign from God, Jesus says that no sign will be given except the sign of Jonah. It is easy to dismiss Jonah as a Sunday School story that we all outgrow, like our belief in Santa Claus. However, this ancient story holds surprises and powerful lessons for you, regardless of whether you are a Christian, a non-Christian, or unsure of what you are.
Many people today dismiss the claims of Christianity outright because they believe the objections against it are self-evident and obviously unanswerable. The truth is that these objections are culturally conditioned rather than rigorously substantiated. Why not examine the objections objectively? What do you have to lose?
For most of us, our work defines us. It gives us a sense of worth and identity. It takes up most of our waking hours. It pays the bills and allows us to enjoy the good things in life. Yet if we are honest, it does not fully satisfy. Why do we need to work? What’s wrong with work? How can work be meaningful?
Christianity has earned a bad name, or at least a dubious reputation, among a significant proportion of modern people. Much of that is justified, because to a large extent Christians have failed to live out the full implications of their faith.
Christ loved the church and gave himself up for her. Let us rekindle our love for the church he laid down his life for, so that it may manifest the manifold wisdom of God, according to his eternal purpose.
If Christianity is false, it is of no consequence what you think about it. But if it is true, it changes everything about the meaning of life, your final destiny and your eternal happiness. Hence, it would be the height of foolishness to ignore it, reject it or even accept it without a careful examination of the man who claimed to be God, and actually got people to believe him.
If all you want is superficial and mushy sentimentality, Hollywood’s portrayal of love will do. But if you really want to experience the greatest love of all between a man and woman, you need to go back to The Source: God himself, the greatest lover, who created man for woman and woman for man.
