“You’re no fun!” Haven’t we all heard that or something like it? For me, it’s usually been in response to not going to a strip club after an office Christmas party, or stopping drinking before getting drunk when at your mate’s place or at the pub. In society, there is this pervasive perception that if you are a Christian, that means you cannot have fun.Read More›
We all know people who have been badly treated by Christians and Christian institutions. When this bad treatment happens to someone close to us it makes us really angry. As Christians we are angry because Christian leaders are not acting at all like Christ. We know they are departing from Jesus’ way of living and leading. We know that God hates to be misrepresented!Read More›
When you think about Christianity and Christians what picture comes to mind? For some their picture of Christianity is that it steals your fun, is all about rules and Christians are boring. Sadly, this is the misconception many people have, and I can understand why.Read More›

Diana was caught up in a life of prostitution and drugs… but that was before she encountered Jesus Christ.
Diana struggled with her self-worth even before becoming a prostitute and used drugs in an attempt to numb the pain and shame associated with her lifestyle. She turned to God by attempting to “clean up her act” but she continued to struggle with addiction, falling to it time and time again.
But then something life-changing happened.Read More›
How often have we all heard a variation of “Jesus was a good person with fantastic morals and he was a great teacher, but that’s all he was.”? It’s a very common thought for a lot of people, isn’t it? People realise that Jesus was real, but they are not willing to accept his claims that he is God.
