"Thanks. Yes I perhaps could have worded it better. Sorry about that. What I meant was as some one who has covictions stemming from Faith how does one then avoid going against conscience. I read elsewhere that I in theory could make an affirmation…"

Grace Alone - My Christian Testimony (updated version)

When I was young, my parents raised me in a Christian home. The influence of the gospel lay upon my life from a young age. I lived in the Mission House owned by the Free Church. My Dad worked as a local preacher and Mum was a caretaker of the Church building next door. The Minister a Rev Macleod and his wife were so kind to us and that has stayed with me over the years. I wanted to give my life to Jesus after hearing so many testimonies and seeing that older believers I met at fellowships had…See More

Profile Information

About Me
Introduction:
I'm David. I am an Evangelical Christian. I have been influenced by study of the Radical Reformation (Anabaptists) and early Quakerism. Along with study of Peace Churches and The Christian Peace Testimony as a whole. I hold a degree in Theology and a degree in Social Sciences. I like sharing wise quotes here from those of the past as well as useful links and my own Prayers, Poetry and Reflections. I run a blog called Reflections (see link).

So, Welcome! Let's celebrate life, faith, hope, love, joy, peace and social justice together.

A little more about me:
I love my family and friends. I am married to my darling Sarah and father to baby Ezra. We like outings, walks and hanging out in coffee shops. I am a follower of Jesus whose gospel is peace. I dream of a better world and of the world to come.

A Statement of Faith:
(1) Jesus Christ is God manifest in the flesh, and apart from Him the true God can not fully be known, worshipped, or acknowledged. Jesus is fully revealed as the God who is love and whose gospel is peace.

 (2) Salvation is by faith in the atoning blood of the Lord Jesus Christ, apart from all human works and character. It is by Grace we are saved not by works, it is a gift from God, obtained through faith. 

(3) It is the supreme obligation of every saved person to obey the Lord Jesus Christ. We will fail no doubt often in this for we are mere humans - but our aim should be holiness. The two golden rules are to love God and love each other (even to love enemies). This is the kind of active faith that can change the world for the better. 

These three points are the pillars of my faith - the deity of Christ, salvation by faith in Him, obedience to His word. 

Do you believe these three things and if not why not take it into consideration?

God said "Let there be light" and there was at creation. In the same way he calls out the light in human hearts. The heart of man's problem is…

Spurgeon Against Carnal Warfare

Posted on 4th mo. 18, 2018 at 3:30pm 0 Comments

"And I do firmly hold, that the slaughter of men, that bayonets, and swords, and guns, have never yet been, and never can be, promoters of the gospel." (Spurgeon 1887)
Some of my fellow Evangelicals with Baptist leanings love to claim Spurgeon as there own man. Even those who turn a blind eye to his teachings on the evils of war and beauty of peace. He was a powerful preacher in his day. What some may not know is that he also was an…
