Hannah and the Importance of Private Prayer

August 12, 2017

Hannah is a relatively unknown Old Testament figure we encounter in the early chapters of 1 Samuel. Her experience of agony and desperation, however is well known to anyone who's lived long enough in a broken world. It is because of this shared experience and Hannah's approach to it, that us moderns can learn a great deal from this woman.

This talk was given by Johan Erasmus.

“The Shack” - The Problem of Evil

June 7, 2017

"The Shack" - and the Problem of Evil." By Dr. Roedolf Botha

Human suffering still carries some of the deepest and most frequently asked questions today: Is there a benevolent God? Does he really care about us? How can a loving God allow so much human affliction? A few years ago a very controversial book, The Shack, tried to address some of these questions. The book had also recently been translated into a movie. Tonight we are going to explore some of the ideas in it in trying to answer some of life's most fundamental questions.

I consume, therefore I am

March 20, 2017

One of the characteristics of South African Christians influenced by the West is our consumer spirituality. "I consume therefore I am" had become the principle of our day, whether we speak of commodities, entertainment or even knowledge. Without realizing it we have paid dearly for it.

Why most of us are pagans - Chris de Beer

February 21, 2017

19-02-2017 If you thought that paganism is something archaic and not applicable to us moderns - think again. To be a pagan implies that you worship a thing and cannot see it as part of the bigger reality. Today we don't have as much sun and river-worshipers as before, but we do have Family, Money, Work, Status, Self and many other.... ‘worshippers’.
 
The Bible warns us that you need to worship God and Him alone, because you will ultimately become what you worship. Hence you have a choice of becoming 'Work-like', 'Attractive-like', 'Mother-like, or the non-pagan version - Godlike.
