Does Positive Confession Work?

Does Positive Confession Work?

by Nick Lotter on April 19, 2016

For the past few months I have been preaching a topical series on “The Most Misunderstood Verses in the Bible”.

The aim of the series is not to point a finger at anybody who has used a verse wrongly out of context, or used any of the clichés. We have all done that at some point or another.

Why Was the Cross Necessary?

Why was the cross necessary

by Nick Lotter on April 22, 2015

Roughly 2000 years ago, Jesus Christ hung from a wooden pole in the ground. He had been beaten almost to death. A crown of thorns had been placed on His head causing excruciating pain and tremendous loss of blood.  He had received a brutal lashing with the cat of nine tails – a lashing that would have ripped lumps of flesh from his back and exposed his internal organs. With all those injuries and in unimaginable pain, he was made to carry his own cross to the hill where he was to be put to death. [click to continue…]

Have you ever had an opportunity to share the Gospel, but didn’t because you didn’t feel secure in being able to deliver the message well?

Christian Tattoo

Talk about a controversial topic! My blog has to date had it’s fair share of controversy. Nothing media-worthy, mind you, just some local apple carts turned over. You can see my Strange Fire article for a taste of that. So the question: should a Christian get a tattoo? Is it Biblically acceptable for a Christian […]

The True Gospel of Jesus Christ

April 24, 2013

There is so much incorrect teaching on the Gospel that the true Gospel is almost unrecognizable in evangelism these days. Instead of being faithful to the Biblical Gospel message (which is a scandal to the lost), evangelists choose to rather tickle the ears of their listeners and tell them exactly what they want to hear. […]

The Queen James Bible: Gay Breakthrough or Silencing the Conscience?

January 7, 2013

Could our Bible translators have got it wrong all these years? When the Hebrew and Greek texts were translated to English to produce the King James Bible, were the translators and scholars biased against homosexuals, adapting the text to suit their own anti-gay agenda?

December 4, 2012

As we enter the Advent season, it is appropriate that we should be reminded of the suffering that the Lord Jesus Christ endured for our sake on the cross. But what exactly did Jesus Christ suffer on the cross? Was it just physical suffering, or was it much worse, much deeper than that?

The New John 3:16

November 13, 2012

As the title suggests, our culture has embraced a new John 3:16. For as long as I can remember, there has always been one verse that everybody knows, and that almost everybody can recite – even unbelievers. John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believes in […]

Since the beginning of time, there has never been a generation which has taken a high enough view of marriage. Even so, over the ages, marriage has been taken more and more lightly and treated with less importance with each passing decade.

Why I am a Calvinist

July 3, 2012

Since about 1610, there has been a big debate going on among Christians all over the world over the issue of Calvinism vs Arminianism, and which theological view is Biblical and correct.
