Spurgeon Against Carnal Warfare

"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 advocate for peace. The following post is a collection of what…See More

Mary’s Example of Heart

For if that which is done away was glorious, much more that which remaineth is glorious (II Corinthians 3:11).But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart (Luke 2:19)."The law woundeth, but the gospel healeth, and is glad tidings and good news.  The law condemneth: and the gospel delivereth.  And Moses accuseth: but Christ defendeth.  And Moses condemneth; but Christ pardoneth.  The law restraineth the hands: but the gospel restraineth the hands and the mind.  And the law…See More

As God promised our ancestors

Isaiah 60.4-5 Lift up your eyes and look around; they all gather together, they come to you; your sons shall come from far away, and your daughters shall be carried on their nurses’ arms. Then you shall see and be radiant; your heart shall thrill and rejoice, because the abundance of the sea shall be brought to you, the wealth of the nations shall come to you.Luke 21.5-11 When some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and gifts dedicated to God, [Jesus] said,…See More

David McKay commented on David Timothy Holdsworth's blog post 'The Jefferson Bible - The Life and Morals of Jesus of Nazareth: Book Review'
"If God wanted us to read a harmonized gospel why give us four gospels? We want it simple. The wise men and the shepherds mingling at the stable. Scripture doesn't give us that. For Matthew and Luke, Mark was not enough. We can see how they…"

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?

The Fruit of Love

Posted on 4th mo. 16, 2018 at 6:08am 0 Comments

"Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind"; and, "Love your neighbour as yourself." (New Testament Community Bible Experience (2011) NIV p26)



In Luke it says a teacher asked how to get eternal life. The answer is put forth: Love God and Love others. Jesus says "do this and you will live". John says elsewhere "whosoever believeth in Him shall have everlasting life." So it…

Peace in the Lord

Peace in the Lord a look at Psalm 4



(V1) The Psalmist shows in this Psalm who we should call on in times of need. He calls upon the Lord. Despite his suffering he calls on the Lord. He does not curse the Lord. He is aware of the holiness and supremacy of God in all matters. This is much like Jesus in the garden of tears. In the depths of anguish and pain He chooses the will of the Father.



(V2,3) The Psalmist is disgusted by the way the…
