I did a Facebook live session tonight thinking about whether the coronavirus is God’s judgement on us. I know it’s a question quite a few people have been asking. It’s a big topic and you’d have to spend hours really going into all the ins and outs, but this is my go at giving an answer live in a few minutes:
I know that a lot of people are anxious about the coronavirus at the moment, and I wanted to say something specifically about how the Bible speaks into that situation. I thought the best way would be through a Facebook livestream – I’ve decided to do a short livestream on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday evenings with a short reading and thought from the Bible.
Tonight’s livestream was on Psalm 46 and is here: (apologiesfor the first bit – Facebook had issues – skip forward a couple of minutes for the real thing!)
The previous one from Wednesday night was about Jesus calming the storm and is available here.
Part three of a six-part series on the question “What is Christianity?” To answer the question we’ll look at a very brief overview of the whole Bible.
In this session we think about the rest of the Old Testament, in particular how God promised to undo the curse of the fall and yet how sin kept on getting in the way. At the end of the Old Testament we are left with a big question – how is God going to deal with the problem of sin?
This is the first of a six-part series where we will be looking at the question “What is Christianity?” To answer the question we’ll look at a very brief overview of the whole Bible.
In this video we think about:
Why it’s important to look at the Bible;
What the Bible says about creation …
… and what that means for us.
If you don’t have a Bible you can get them online or via apps, e.g. the YouVersion Bible app, or http://biblegateway.com. The two Bible translations I mention are called the New International Version and the New Living Translation.
I have started work on an Understand the Bible mobile app which will make it easier to use the discipleship programme from a mobile device. Please do stay tuned for more news – if you haven’t already, do sign up for notifications and / or the mailing list.
In the meantime, if you have a smartphone and would like to help me give the app a test run to check if there are any problems before it goes live, please do get in touch!
