There’s a fight to the death going on inside you right now and there’s no option of retirement!   But who’s fighting, and for what?

The battle started the minute you put your trust in Christ and will not stop until death, or the Lord’s Return, when the victory will be finally won – by our glorious Lord Himself. The battle is for your mind!

SEEING THE BIGGER PICTURE Looking forward to Eternity is not a form of escapism; it’s what we’re meant to do – to be effective in this world

“There are only two days in my calendar: This day and that Day.” Martin Luther’s words follow that of the Apostle Paul – and the lead of their Saviour Jesus. Shouldn’t we think the same way in order to be an obedient and effective witness to the One who has chosen us by grace?

Can we make any sense of history, other than “Well, it’s what God has planned?” Has He revealed His purposes in history? And, if so, how can we understand them?

Having seen that the One New Man and the renewed mind are central to God’s will and purposes, we need to see how the Holy Spirit, through Paul, wants to renew our minds and open our understanding, even while going over some territory, familiar to the New Testament reader.

The battle for our minds has already been won, praise God! But it’s still raging …

So what’s our part in the battle, if we already have the mind of Christ? Is the renewing of our mind solely the work of the Holy Spirit?

What is ‘One New Man’ and why has the Church failed to grasp exactly what it means?

So where is the One New Man today? Is he still waiting in the wings to appear on the world stage as the result of some great end-time revival? Or is there some connection with us ‘putting on the new man’, as a result of the spirit of our minds having been renewed?

Where are ‘the heavenlies’ that Paul talks about in Ephesians and what impact should they have on our daily lives?

Much has been made of this phrase, some of it ‘inspired’ by the fights of fancy of many a preacher! For Paul, it is rooted in our lives here on earth and provides a divine perspective on our pathway – a theme thoroughly explored in William Gurnall’s timeless classic, “The Christian in Complete Armour.” 1

On one end of the scale, we are all aware of the growing number of believers (in our case - especially from Arab origin) who want to be accepted and acknowledged by their own people so much that they have adjusted their theology accordingly. Some even coming to an extreme position, defending Muslim terrorists and debunking Israel’s right to defend itself, and all in the name of Jesus.

How an English Christian uncovered a Brazilian tragedy and decided to act

“Over the next few hours we would meet over a dozen young girls, each trapped in a life of abuse and exploitation, and all within the space of less than a square mile. What was most difficult to accept, though, was their ages – the youngest was ten, and most were younger than thirteen. We would later hear from the town’s children’s council that there were at least 200 girls involved in prostitution in the town, and the average age was just eleven.” (Highway to Hell, by Matt Roper)

While America’s evangelical Christians are rightly concerned about the secular worldview’s rejection of biblical Christianity, we ought to give some urgent attention to a problem much closer to home–biblical illiteracy in the church. This scandalous problem is our own, and it’s up to us to fix it.

CATC 2010

Following the original Christ At The Checkpoint in 2010, the Rosh Pina Project began highlighting the anti-Jewish aspects of the conference. We broke the story in 2011 – which was eventually picked up by Bnei Brith and then the international press – that Palestinian pastor Mitri Raheb had claimed Israeli Jews have no Jewish blood, and Palestinians were descended from King David. We also opposed Christ at the Checkpoint by highlighting how two speakers called for a Christian jihad in 2010, whilst affirming  that Hamas has “every right to attack the West.” We suggested that for many, this conference was an opportunity to lend Christian theological support for terrorism ...
