Easter: Fake News or Good News?

How do we know the truth about a report we hear? Whether it is on the TV, in the papers or on social media? In the rush to get the scoop, lies and half-truths mascaraed as news. Some people see the resurrection of Jesus like that. Fake news, concocted because people need something to believe. Even some Christians think that we are asked to believe entirely on the basis of blind faith rather than evidence. This is not the case. Chris offers three types of evidence: Historical, Psychological and Experiential.

The slogans and catch phrases which we repeat reflect our culture. The Apostle Paul selected 5 pithy sayings which he said were trustworthy. In this series Chris explores how these phrases speak to transform our minds by the renewing of the Spirit. In the first talk we consider the saying Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners – of whom I am the worst. These are words which break the power of pride and self pity, assure us of salvation and propel us in to service for Christ. A trustworthy saying indeed!
