Preaching or Discussion Groups: what’s best?

Posted by on 26th Apr, 2010 in Online Resources | 0 comments

Is preaching an outdated authoritarian form of communication which will soon be a thing of the past. I don’t think the apostle Paul anticipated that. However, he did expect there would be seasons when people didn’t really want to listen to biblical preaching but preferred being flattered. Sound familiar? The apostle Paul is in prison. The church is about to face persecution. There are people teaching things that distort the gospel. The most important thing his lieutenant Timothy must do is to preach. Preaching is fundamentally a proclamation much more than a discussion. Mostly in the...

Romans 16:1 to 27 – The Long Goodbye

Today at HHEFC we completed our series in the book of Romans with a look at Chapter 16 – an exceptionally long sign off but with lots to teach us about a real church.

Would you welcome anyone to your home?

There’s been great media interest recently about gay rights competing and conflicting with religious freedom prompted by Christians who run a bed & breakfast refusing to allow a homosexual couple to rent a double room. Personally, I think they were wrong to do that, but I do think they should be free to decide in good conscience on this issue before God without state interference. I suppose it would be more consistent of them to refuse all couples in what Christians would consider sexually immoral relationships – I wonder what the law says about that? The Bible mentions homosexuality...
