Victory in Suffering Pt 2 – A New Look at Suffering

Tuesday 14th September 2021

This is a painful but very real part of life. We all go through suffering to one degree or another, and we ask the question, “Why did God allow. . .?” But let’s also ask “Why does God allow so much good to happen?” Listen to this new perspective as Greg explores the purpose of suffering.

What On Earth is Our Heavenly Father Doing?

When you are looking for God where do you look? Better said, when God is looking for you, where will he find you? And is meeting God according to our drumbeat or His?

 

Our Gracious Heavenly Father

Monday 6th September 2021

No More Tears

Friday 3rd September 2021

Can we as Christians do anything about the pain and heartache in this world? Should we even try? After all, Jesus said his kingdom is not part of this world and promises to wipe away every tear — but can we just sit in the grandstands watching all the suffering now?

 

Do You Want to be Healed?

Thursday 2nd September 2021

It’s Not My Fault!

Wednesday 1st September 2021

Will Rogers once said that history will record the passing of the American Indian, the passing of the buffalo and the passing of the buck. “Who me, I’m not responsible,” is a popular human response for bad behavior. What is the biblical perspective about this?

Trapped By Religion

Friday 27th August 2021

Has a normal, likeable friend of yours ever suddenly “got religion” and become an unreasonable, fire-breathing, hypercritical, placard-carrying, end-times-predicting kook? Why does religion do that? Is that what God wants? Greg discusses the dangers of religious fundamentalism.

 

Overcoming Fear

Thursday 26th August 2021

What God Expects

Wednesday 25th August 2021

Having the Experience — Missing the Meaning

Tuesday 24th August 2021

Wednesday 18th August 2021

Monday 16th August 2021

All Show and No Go

Friday 30th July 2021

Sometimes cars look sleek, fast and powerful, but are gutless wonders — all show and no go. Religion does that — it makes us more concerned with what people see and think about us than with the real substance of authentic Christianity — a one-on-one relationship with God.

Reality TV — How Low Can We Go?

Thursday 29th July 2021

Too Good To Be True?

Wednesday 28th July 2021
