Halloween: Should CHRISTIAN kids go Trick or Treating?

Halloween: Should CHRISTIAN kids go Trick or Treating?

admin

Halloween to kids means chocolates, dress ups, hanging with friends and fun-fun-fun! However, is it right for Christian families to be involved in Halloween celebration?

In this video I talk about the actual origins of “All Hallows Eve,” the supernatural curiosity that Halloween peaks and most importantly the parenting opportunity events like this bring to train our children.

Gospel of Jesus = Evangelism Gone Wrong

Gospel of Jesus = Evangelism Gone Wrong

The gospel of Jesus is the core of the Christian story, but it is not the whole story. When evangelising our world, we must not stop at the gospel of Jesus. We must ensure every person hears The Gospel of the Kingdom and knows the full story before they lay down their life for Jesus. In this video I challenge the believer to share the full Christian story, all four chapters. I encourage believers to know and articulate the Gospel of the Kingdom which encompasses all four chapters, whereas the “too-narrow gospel” of Jesus only covers two.

Lose respect for God and ultimately we lose our future because we were ignorant of our past!
 
The Lord’s Prayer is likely the most recognisable Christian utterance. First prayed by Jesus in Matthew 6:9-13, it is the formula for talking to God and knowing His Will. Our forefathers possessed this revelation. Knowing man’s will, as mostly corrupt, they established the Lord’s Prayer as the first act, before the state parliament sat to govern. The premise, that ministers would look first to God and His Will, which is for good, not evil and human prosperity, not oppression.
 
I understand the push to remove it. Australia’s cultural worldview is increasingly Naturalistic. Naturalism assumes Evolution as science and therefore the need for a Creator, His Will, and prayer honouring his existence are rendered religious tradition; negotiable.
 
The Lord’s Prayer at the beginning of parliament ensures two things.
 
1) we honour our Judaeo-Christian roots, our heritage, our story.
 
2) We fear the Lord. We put Him not the state or the people first. My main concern is the second. If we lose our reverence for God, we lose our wisdom. If we allow the removal of a transcendent, perfect God who created all for good and provides the solution to evil in His son Jesus then we remove all hope. We are left with the state as God and Father, we lose the moral law and the Christian values that have been critical to the success of our nation. Ultimately we lose our future because we were ignorant of our past.

The Righteous Exalt Their Nation

The Righteous Exalt Their Nation

admin

We all love Proverbs 14:34 – “Righteousness exalts a nation” and prayerfully decree the proverb leading into political elections but how does it really work? Who are “The Righteous,” and how do they go about building their nation. What should the righteous do? What are we meant to be doing?

I unpack three KEY ways THE RIGHTEOUS exalt their nation:

  1. They recognize the BIG Biblical story.
  2. They maximise vocational power.
  3. They steward familial responsibility.
