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.

In Search of Meaning: What on earth am I here for? - Johan Erasmus

January 30, 2017

15-01-15 Socrates famously remarked that the unexamined life is not worth living. Soon after embarking on such an examination you are bound to be confronted with the question of meaning - what on earth am I here for? What is the significance/reason/purpose of life?

All worldviews have to wrestle with this question and needless to say, derive at different conclusions, but for many Christians the idea of 'a calling' can help solve the riddle.

Before we officially jump into the distractions of 2017, let us first try to wrestle with one of the most asked questions in the world.

Jesus left us two visual images to remember and summarise his work on earth. One image is expressed in bread and wine. The other is immersion in water. But what does it mean? Water is central in understanding the message of Jesus.

Om God raak te sien - Roedolf Botha

December 2, 2016

2016-11-20 The hiddenness of God is something that bothers a lot of people today. Yet it is nothing new. The travelers to Emmaus also did not recognise the presence of the living Christ in their broken and shattered world.

For Heaven’s Sake - Johan Erasmus

December 2, 2016

2016-10-16 Yuri Gagarin, the first person in space, famously said; “I looked and looked but didn’t see God”!
Christians often talk about the cross and resurrection but are seemingly silent on Jesus’ ascension. Is it possible that not a Russian, but a Jew was the first person in space?
