Although Manny Pacquiao quickly apologized for his remarks about homosexuals, Nike dropped him like a hot potato. In contrast, Nike never dropped Tiger Woods despite the revelations of his serial adulteries, even though those led to the destruction of his marriage and worldwide public shame. Why the double standard?

Does Nike believe that it is far worse to make a passing, extremely derogatory comment about homosexuals—one for which Manny quickly apologized and asked forgiveness—than to betray one's children and cheat on one's wife, sleeping with a bevy of different women over a period of years (including several porn stars)?

Or could it be that, because Tiger is still worth more money, his transgressions are more forgivable?

 

One New Man is alive and well in the unlikeliest of places …

An insightful report into the Messianic Congregations, Jewish life and history in Ukraine today and how the concept of One New Man is being worked out there.

The scriptures and prophecies no longer belong to the Jewish people, but to the church. Is that what you believe?

It is obvious that differing views exist within the church concerning the place and role of the Jewish people. A major issue concerns their right to live in their ancient homeland as well as the assertion that the Scriptures and prophecies no longer belong to the Jewish people, but are now the property of the church.

Using our bodies in worship is sadly neglected, but ultimately rewarding. Ask anyone who’s been to Foundations.

We have been blessed over the last few years to be associated with Ginnie White and her marvellous Sh’ma Kingdom Dancers. They have blessed so many people through their workshops and the evidence has been the number of people set free and empowered at our conferences through Hebraic dance.

Appearing at a screen near you ... probably a matter of inches away

As far as I’m concerned, technology has finally caught up with my imagination. We have been blessed with wonderful fellowship and unique teaching experiences at our Foundations conferences, but these are few and far between. What about the rest of the year?

Feeding from the ancient roots of the faith, without being strangled by them

Something interesting has been happening in an ‘upper room’ in a church clubhouse opposite the Post Office tower in Central London since early this year. A diverse group of people have decided that there’s something special about the Biblical calendar, so why not celebrate it?

Joint statement from Andrea Williams, Chief Executive of Christian Concern, and Member of General Synod and Rev. Dr. Joe Boot, (M.A, Ph.D.) Director of the Wilberforce Academy and Senior Pastor of Westminster Chapel, Toronto following the Church of England's 'shared conversation'. It has been a troubling week for Western Anglicanism. The Canadian General Synod, after some bureaucratic confusion, carried a motion to accept recommendations for the full adoption of same-sex 'marriage' by the church – the decision will become canon law in 2019. There was no real shock here. The Anglican Church of Canada has long been in the vanguard of assaulting the orthodox teaching of the church on sexuality and revelling in their divisiveness. Here in the UK, the 'shared conversations' of the past two years culminated in a General Synod meeting at York University, where plenary sessions and small group work largely proved to be the stage-managed piece of theatre many were expecting

“Foundations at Belsey Bridge was the place to be to have a taste of the Hebraic church. So many expressions of worship as the freedom in the Spirit was so tangible and pure, we could really sense God smiling over us. Although nobody else attended the bible reading session led by us, it felt as though we were meant to be there on our own. We had the privilege to sing scriptures!!We sang alternating the Psalms and in different tunes! We were very blessed by that special time Our Abba reserved for the two of us... I (Keila) particularly, was moved by the time we had in the prayer walk with Rosie and Ginnie. All the prophetic acts,reading of scripture and blowing of the shofar, it all worked together to remind us that we are in a battlefield. By the way my shoulders (Keila) are healed!!! Hallelujah!! The pain is gone, thank you, David and Judith for the prayers!” (Keila & David.)

“I think it was really valuable to have prayer specifically for healing and hope that Foundations can see this aspect of our work grow. FYI you will recall that Joyce has suffered really depleted in energy levels for some months and we have no obvious ‘reason’, beyond the after effects of her treatment in 2013. She was prayed for, at Foundations Anglia, specifically for this energy issue and praise God! Her energy levels have risen - she appears to be over this particular issue. Again we can only thank the Lord for this deliverance.” (Peter)

“What an incredible presence of the Holy Spirit from the moment we arrived.  It is so precious to witness what the Lord is doing with the ministry and a huge privilege to be part of this new move of God which really does seem to be ‘ for such a time as this’. In agreement with so many others, the freedom and  unity of spirit was unlike anything I have experienced and an overwhelming spirit of joy filled every aspect of each day.  The work behind the scenes before  and during the weekend I know was  massive but  because it was done with such love ,there was never any sense of anyone being rushed off their feet – the joy and peace came from the top down (however you might have felt) and pervaded the whole event.  Thanks to you all with a very special mention of Jo, who at every possible moment led us with such sensitivity  into the presence of Jesus  with the sole purpose of seeing Him and Him alone magnified and glorified.  And everyone responded in oneness of heart and spirit. What an incredible gift. What a privilege to be there. For me personally, I was really  exhausted before we arrived and was wondering how I would cope with it all,but by the end of Sunday The Lord had refreshed me in  what could only have been a supernatural way.  One afternoon I got chatting and sharing with a  lovely lady called Susanna..... she was sharing her testimony about how Jesus had healed her back.  I felt a nudge from the Lord to ask her if she had faith to pray for me as my back has been bad for a loooong time  now.  She was very willing, prayed a short prayer and I have to say that the improvement has been HUGE – and I am believing for total on going and complete  healing. How good is our God. (Sarah)
