The Second Eve – Part 1

Firstly, this series is largely inspired by Frank Viola’s book, “From Eternity To Here”. If you want to understand this theme better then I highly recommend the book! Most of us have heard that Christ is the second or last Adam (1 Cor. 15:45, 1 Cor. 15:47). This makes sense to us because Paul goes […]

Book Review: From Eternity to Here by Frank Viola

There are thousands of new Christian books released every year. Having read tons of these books I can honestly say that no book has had an impact on me as much as Frank Viola’s “From Eternity to Here“. From Eternity to Here is a stunning narrative revealing God’s eternal purpose and how it relates to us – […]

Church Membership – Is it biblical?

If you are reading this, then the blog title probably caught your attention because of the debate that goes on around this topic. However, I hope to offer quite a different perspective on the matter that will unite us in Christ rather than divide us over doctrine. Firstly, what may surprise you considering my view […]

Why I’m pro-Organic Church – Part 2

In part I I described my journey into finding out about organic church to the point of starting to live it out with other believers. However, I did not give a definition of what an organic church is, looks like and how it functions. This post will try to answer some of these questions and hopefully […]

Why I’m pro-Organic Church: My journey – Part 1

As someone who has been experiencing and enjoying Organic Church for some time now, I felt it would be good to finally put some words down. I am writing this series of blog posts for many reasons but primarily because I was inspired to do so by another blog I found (A Former Skeptic: Why […]

The Way of Humility

The Lord is always teaching us something in our walk with Him. Most times He teaches us a few things at the same time. Other times He will labour a long time on one specific thing until it is learned and assimilated to the point where a specific area of our lives are totally transformed. […]

The Functioning of the Body

The purpose of a physical body is to give our personality an expression. In the same way, the body of Christ – us – gives Christ an expression to the world. (For more on the purpose of the body click here.) However, in order for the purpose of the body to be fulfilled, there needs […]

The Purpose of the Body

In my previous post titled The Body we saw that we are members of Christ’s body. When Jesus spoke to Paul on the Damascus road He asked Paul why he was persecuting Him and at the time Paul was persecuting the believers. We see that Christ makes no distinction between believers and Himself. In fact we […]

The Body of Christ

For most Christian’s the idea that the Church is the ‘Body of Christ’ is acknowledged and even given lip service on occasion. However, I believe that most Christians have failed to see the staggering magnificence of this reality. We have simply given the phrase ‘Body of Christ’ a head nod and filed it away in our theological file cabinets or […]
