The Disaster of Investing All in Earth, not Heaven

The richest king of his time, who indulged to extremes in pleasure, intellectual pursuits and creative skills, and who kept 700 wives - Solomon - eventually found a godless life futile and turned to the Lord. Here is his experience and his appeal to all for conversion.

God’s Glory in View

The climax of 1 Peter is the prayer that we, having suffered in some measure on earth, will be fully repaired, fixed firmly on the road, providing a sure basis for those who follow us. Here also we explore the definition of God's glory.

A Parable of Perseverance

'For the earth which drinketh in the rain that cometh oft upon it, and bringeth forth herbs meet for them by whom it is dressed, receiveth blessing from God: But that which beareth thorns and briers is rejected, and is nigh unto cursing; whose end is to be burned.'

Six Biblical Steps for Guidance
Dr Peter Masters

This article presents the traditional view that we are to seek guidance from the Lord in all the major decisions of life, and he will clarify our thinking, or overrule our circumstances. ‘Shew me thy ways, O Lord; teach me thy paths. Lead me in thy truth, and teach me.’ (Psalm 25.4-5)

How Do We Love God?
Dr Peter Masters

How do we love God who is invisible? He is seen in creation, in salvation, and also in our experience in the ongoing Christian life. How do we love God who is untouchable? But he is touchable by prayer. How do we love God who is unhearable? But we do hear him in his Word. Read much, and we hear him much.

Dr Peter Masters

Keeping the Church Separate from the World
Dr John Gresham Machen

‘..if the salt have lost his savour, wherewith shall it be salted?' In these words our Lord established at the beginning the distinctness and separateness of the church. If the sharp distinction is ever broken down between the church and the world, then the power of the church is gone.
