Word, Spirit, Word, Spirit…in balance

The ‘unbalanced’ church?… There is a tendency for some churches to be too focused on the experiences of the Holy Spirit – as a church they end up seeking the experience rather than where the experience should be rooted (Jesus). In the end all that remains is outward display that means nothing without the Word of God in the heart. Equally, there are other churches which focus on the Word of God to the point of excluding the Spirit and anything possibly to do with the Spirit. In the end they become dry because the Holy Spirit that brings...

While at the London 2012 Paralympics…inspirational

Poll – Should Christians use online dating?

In this poll we’re asking for a ‘gut’ reaction to the idea of using online dating, simply if it is right or wrong or if it depends on the situation. Some will probably say, ‘why are you even asking the question? – there’s obviously nothing wrong with using the internet to meet someone, especially as there is a shortage of eligible Christians in my local area’. However, others would raise questions about safety, and also being more vulnerable to making the finding of a partner higher up the priority than relationship with God. Others might add into the argument...
