How can I know more?
Come and see. We do want to help you understand why the Lord Jesus Christ wants to be as central to you as he is to us. In the end God won't force you. We won't force you. It's down to you. Remember deciding to search for God (or not to) is the most important decision you will ever take! So please don't say ‘no' to Him.
Bryan Appleyard, writer, describing the 20th century:
‘First, the bad news: the 20th century has been the worst in human history ... The facts are plain. Thanks to ... Mao Tse-tung, Stalin, Hitler and Pol Pot, our age has been more systematically cruel and murderous than any other.... . ... nobody can ignore the fact that the cruellest era in history was also the first to deny the existence of an external moral force. ... The question ... therefore, is: if, without an external moral law, we descend into barbarism ... what can we do to stop the long nightmare of the 20th century from spilling over into the 21st?' (Sunday Times, 24 October 1999)
Rhidian Brooke, novelist, describing his meeting with other Christians at a very low point in his life:
‘For them the Gospel wasn't a prose poem, a fine methaphor, a philosophical meditation or a once-a-year top-up. It was the real thing. And I could see the connection between them believing it and being able to live it; the connection between the joy and peace in them and what the Gospel had told me.'
Rhidian then tells of the consequences of his beginning a relationship with Jesus:
'And the peace I felt when I recognized Him was my proof; the guarantee of His reality.' (Daily Telegraph, 27 March 1999)
Jesus, the Son of God, describing His Father's love for us:
‘For God so loved the world that he gave his only Son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have eternal life.' (John 3: 16)
