It was the third day after Jesus was crucified.

Notwithstanding the work of the Spirit in Northampton and elsewhere in New England in 1735, Samuel Blair of New Londonderry was not alone in bemoaning the dismal state of religion in early 1740: it ‘lay as it were a-dying and ready to expire its last breath of life in this part of the visible Church’.1 […]

There can be no more solemn subject than a lost eternity. Yet, as we are obliged to receive all of God’s revelation, we must believe it. Especially in an age when the word hell is rarely used except as a swear word, we must give the subject due emphasis. Yet one suspects that there is […]

Mankind was created in a paradise, but that paradise was soon invaded by the devil. And the devil brought in sin, which meant that Adam and Eve could not continue in the paradise God had created for them. They were cast out and, as long as there was no revelation of God’s grace, there must […]

It was to a people drifting further and further from God that Isaiah was sent with his prophecies. And, as they gave themselves more and more to sin – idolatry and Sabbath breaking and much more – the fulfilment of those prophecies which spoke of captivity loomed ever closer.

The Saviour had spent 40 days and 40 nights with His disciples after the resurrection. The time had now come for Him to leave them and to ascend to heaven. They were to go out, He told them, and bear witness for Him “both in Jerusalem, and in all Judaea, and in Samaria, and unto […]

Back in 1957 a British archaeologist opined in an American magazine: “Nearly all the really important questions, the things we ponder in our profoundest moments, have no answer”.

Wilkins did not believe the Bible. In fact, he scoffed at religion and boasted that he had never been in a place of worship for 30 years. John Ashworth (1813-1875), who lived in the same northern town, Rochdale, became concerned for Wilkins’ soul (cp.Calman, (A.L.) Life and Labours of John Ashworth. Third edition. 363 pp. […]
