The Jesus Who Offends - Sunday January 14th

We tend not to think of Jesus as being offensive. Yet, in his own day, he clearly was. People didn't like being called hypocrites, or being told that it was their hearts that were the problem. But do we like hearing that any more today than they did then? And if Jesus says the problem of the human condition is the human heart - what's the solution? We can't give ourselves ...

In our two services this Sunday we're going to be seeing four different responses to just such a happening.

The problem of evil is something that can undermine the faith of many. And yet it's also a problem for those who don't believe. After all - why is evil a problem if there are no moral absolutes and no God? So, given that evil is a problem for believer and unbeliever alike, what does Jesus have to say about it? In our Morning Service(10:30am) we will continue looking at M...
