I am happy to offer answers to anyone with a question that refers to the Christian Faith in its widest possible sense. I believe that the Bible is the living Word of God, and seek to base all of my life on its teaching. I also have some knowledge of some of the cults, and of Islam and Judaism. Of course, my answers are just one man's thoughts, and I would always advise a questioner to check with others, and with the Word of God.
Served as a full-time parish minister in Scotland for about six years, and then spent the last thirty as a teacher (now 'retired') of Religious Education in Secondary Comprehensive schools (ages 11-17) while continuing my own preaching and teaching ministry. I have spent three years as a voluntary Chaplain with Strathclyde Police Force. I also believe that learning is a life-time process, and have recently completed a Master's degree in Divinity. I now spend most of my time in France, ministering mainly to English-speaking groups.
Former Presenter on Revival FM - a local Christian, community radio station, broadcasting in west central Scotland, and online at revival.fm Involved with a number of organisations that support Christians who are currently suffering persecution in some 70 countries around the world.

The Word of God is so simple as far as its basic message is concerned, that even a child can understand it; yet it is so profound that even much cleverer folk than I could never fully plumb the depths of its wisdom and practicality.
I am currently working on vol.2 of my book series. This one will be titled, Foundations of the Faith, and will deal with The Apostles' Creed, and The Ten Words (Commandments).
If you open a standard Bible in the middle, you will find yourself in the book of the prophet Isaiah. That book has 66 chapters - the same as the number of books in the Bible. It is clearly in two sections - chapters 1-39, and 40-66. This corresponds exactly with the division of the Bible into its two Testaments, with 39 books in the Old Testament, and 27 in the New Testament.
That, ultimately, mankind is NOT the decider of its own destiny.

Hello, Abraham Thank you for two most unusual questions! The simple answer to the first of them is "No!". The answer to the second is that there is no such instruction anywhere in the Bible. There
Hi, again, Pete What I am saying is that Judah actually acted worse than Israel, because they should have learned Israel's lesson. However, we are now moving into two additional areas - grace, and
