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 its toll on those who cling doggedly to power for many years – often because of a lust for continued power, privilege and financial…Details
God’s solution to the environmental crisis
The world faces many apparently insoluble problems today – unsustainable population growth, climate change, increasing water and food shortages, economic and financial stress, worsening social unrest and violent lawlessness. Responsible national governments have cause to be gravely worried.
Take the exponential world population growth in the 20th and 21st centuries for a start*. From less than 2 billion in 1900 it had grown to 5 billion in 1987, and has since grown to 7.8 billion in February 2020. It is projected to reach 10 billion by 2056. The reality of providing the necessary food, clean water and waste disposal facilities is daunting if not impossible. The rate of annual growth on the African continent remains the highest and explains the aim of so many would-be migrants to seek better lives elsewhere. *www.worldometers.info/world-information/
The strain on the world’s environment has reached crisis proportions. Add to this the growing evidence for global warming and climate change, and the need to somehow reduce the increasing rate of carbon emissions. The dangers of air pollution are all too evident in the cities of large developing nations.
Setting aside the threats of international armed conflict and terrorist activity, there appears to be no human solution to the increasingly pressing environmental problems. This is why the supremacy of Almighty God the Creator and His intention to intervene needs to be taken into account.
God’s inspired word, the Bible, predicts that the world will emerge from insoluble crisis to become a glorified and peaceful place. The Bible tells us repeatedly that Christ the Son of God will return to earth at a time of unprecedented trouble to establish God’s Kingdom. He will reign over the entire world, vanquish evil and achieve peace and a sustainable environment on earth.
We warmly invite you to a free Bible presentation enlarging on this crucial topic. It’s titled God’s solution to the environmental crisis. This will be on Sunday afternoon the 15th of March at 2.00pm. The venue is the Christadelphian Hall, 489 Mt Gravatt-Capalaba Road, corner of Boyanda Street, opposite Ham Road, Wishart. That date and time again: Sunday afternoon the 15th of March at 2 o’clock.

Vast numbers of people today have little or no idea of the content of the Bible. There are some churches that claim to have the Bible as the sole authority for their beliefs, but not all of them give it the really close attention it deserves. Other churches (some very large ones at that) claim…Details
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. Will there…Details
God’s promises hold out wonderful possibilities for us. They are detailed in the Old Testament, and confirmed and elaborated on in the New Testament. In fact they are described by the Apostle Peter as “great and precious. God’s promises to Abraham are described by the Apostle Paul as “the gospel”. These important comments stress their…Details
Responsible world governments are deeply worried. Tensions between the U.S.A. and expansionist China appear to be threatening the stability of the world economy. Tensions have also heightened between the U.S.A. and an increasingly nationalistic Russia. Highly dangerous situations continue to be prominent in the Middle East, in the Korean peninsular, and in European nations bordering…Details
Yes, Jesus Christ is alive today. There is strong evidence for the fact that he was resurrected to life. 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. They tried to spread the rumour that Christ’s disciples…Details
If you attend a church, or perhaps intend to do so, it’s probable that you believe that there is a God and that Jesus Christ is His Son. If that is so, then it’s really important to understand what God has revealed about Himself and His purpose in His inspired word, the Bible. God’s word…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. It’s a consistent record…Details
Responsible world governments are deeply worried. The U.N. Secretary General has used the words “on the brink” to describe the current threats to world peace. A highly flammable situation pervades the deep enmity between the U.S.A and Iran. Other dangerous tensions continue to be prominent in the Middle East, with Russia and the U.S.A taking…Details
Many people are confused and indifferent about belief in God. In our secular society many have abandoned altogether the notion of a supreme, all-powerful God who commands our respect and obedience. A lot of ideas about God are based on the opinions and feelings of those who are at least prepared to acknowledge His existence.…Details
