The world faces many apparently insoluble problems today – unsustainable population growth, climate change, increasing water and food shortages, economic and financial stress, increasing social unrest and violent lawlessness. Responsible world governments are deeply worried. Highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean Peninsular, in the South China Sea…Details
Life after death – a certainty?
The issue of what happens to us when we die is one that grips the attention of most of us at some time or other. The older we get the more we find it demanding our serious consideration. This can also apply to younger people who suffer life-threatening or serious injuries or illnesses. Is it to be the same eventual outcome for everyone, or not? Is death the immediate gateway to another life. Is it to be heavenly bliss or torment in hell – or neither?
Bible teaching about life after death is neither falsely over-optimistic nor gloomy and depressing. It’s impressively rational and realistic. The Bible faces up to the realities of our human nature but also offers a wonderful hope for the future for those prepared to respond to its teaching and act upon its advice.
The Bible reveals that bodily resurrection at the future time of Christ’s second coming, followed by divine judgement to determine who is worthy, or unworthy, to receive the gift of eternal life, is the one and only hope of life after death. The crucially important issue therefore is to define what we must do to be held accountable for divine assessment at this momentous time and to have hope of the gracious gift of eternal life in God’s future Kingdom on earth.

Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected from death. For a start, no one could produce a corpse to prove otherwise, even though the religious rulers of the day would dearly have loved to do so. Christ’s frightened and disillusioned company of disciples were transformed…Details
Unlikely as it may seem in view of today’s world being troubled by so many tensions and conflicts, the world is destined for a time of peace on an unprecedented scale. How will this be achieved? So many well-meaning human efforts have been made to accomplish this and yet have failed. Today, highly dangerous situations…Details
Did you realise that Jesus Christ is going to come a second time to fulfil his destiny to be King of the world? Ordinarily, so called “world leaders” come and go – whether good, bad or mediocre. None of them actually “lead” the whole world. They are all fallible and all temporary. Mortality inevitably takes…Details
Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible, let alone believe in its contents. There are some churches which claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs. Other churches (some very large ones at that) claim that the authority of their leaders, or…Details
The Bible claims to be the word of God – God’s inspired revelation of Himself and His Son, and His plan for the world. The Bible’s claim to truth is confirmed by its many future predictions that have actually come to pass – particularly predictions about Jesus Christ and God’s people Israel. This reassures us…Details
Responsible world governments are deeply worried. Multiple tense and dangerous situations continue to be prominent worldwide, and especially in the Middle East, in the Korean peninsular, and in European nations bordering Russia. Peaceful coexistence between the major powers is under threat. Furthermore, extremist Islamic terrorism can strike anywhere – even in Australia, as already experienced…Details
The people of Israel are described in the Old Testament as “God’s witnesses” (Isaiah 43 vv10&12). God, we’re told, chose Israel not because of their importance but because He loved them. The Old and New Testaments contain an amazingly candid record of their history, with their flaws and failings plainly revealed – a consistent record…Details
Humanism represents a way of thinking that attaches prime importance to human thinking rather than a divine or supernatural authority. In contemporary western society humanism is largely non-religious and secular and does not recognise any divine authority. One of the problems arising from this philosophy is that humanists often fail to agree about the best…Details
