The most important question of all …
When He was talking with a friend one day, Jesus of Nazareth made an extraordinary claim.
He said - "I am the resurrection and the life. Whoever believes in Me, though he dies, yet shall he live. Whoever lives and believes in me shall not die forever". (St John's Gospel Chapter 11 Verses 25-26). Then He asked a simple question, "Do you believe this?".
That question remains at the heart of human existence: Do you believe that Jesus Christ is telling the truth? It is a question that all of us must answer, and not answering it is an answer in itself. How we answer it shapes where we shall spend eternity - it is as crucial as that.
Jesus showed in many ways that He is indeed telling the truth, most of all by His own rising from the dead Himself - an event described as "the best attested fact in history".
In the light of the evidence around us in support of His claims, believing that Jesus IS telling the truth turns out to be the most sensible and obvious response. Equally, trying to write Him off as a fake means heads are being buried in a great deal of sand.
This week’s “Sorry Mr Darwin but…!”
“A-sexual reproduction” gives up to twice as much reproductive success as normal sexual reproduction. So how come the latter gained enough advantage, through the claimed process of “natural selection”, as to be selected in preference to “a-sexual reproduction”?
What we see before us here is a flat contradiction of “natural selection” – so how and why could this “failure” have occurred?
The answer is obvious: “Natural selection” is and never has been God.
Thankfully God is God, and always has been, and always will be.

It makes you think!
"I can't see any future for a church that in God's world doesn't accept that it must be involved in that part of it which is political and economic.
A church which claims that the world is for Christ must be up to its neck in politics".
Donald Soper, Methodist preacher.
