Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

Like someone in denial about an illness, we somehow shut out all thoughts of our relationship with God and of eternity. We cannot see why God would reject us. The Bible tells us how much we need to find Him, and how He has made it possible.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The existence of the conscience has invincible proof, but much modern thinking hates and rejects it, claiming it is merely a remnant of brainwashing. Certainly it may cause much trouble, even illness, but here is God's way for the conscience to be cleansed.

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

Bible Study by Dr Peter Masters

In the course of the Lord's 'seminary course' for His future apostles (passages addressed exclusively to them) we consider the necessity of humility, the avoidance of offences large and small, radical measures in personal sanctification, discipline, the prevailing power of corporate prayer, and forbearance.

Gospel sermon by Dr Peter Masters

The actions of a king in choosing earthly counsels in times of trouble, rather than God's solution, amazingly mirrors the actions of most of us as we fashion our policy for life. Here are our reactions to life's troubles, and the earthly or heavenly options before us.
