By Gustav Krös I am a firm believer that as long as we live in this world one can never stop growing in your spiritual life. Even if you have enjoyed a personal relationship with Christ since early childhood and you grow spiritually for a hundred years, you would still not reach a point of…

JUST A MINUTE: 20/20 VISION

JUST A MINUTE: QUANTUM ENTANGLEMENT AND THE ‘MYSTICAL’ BODY OF CHRIST

29th Nov 2019 . by Donnelly McCleland

1 Corinthians 12:26: “If one part (of the body) suffers, every part suffers with it; if one part is honoured, every part rejoices with it.”  In theology, 1 Corinthians 12:26 is referred to as the “mystical body of Christ”.  In quantum physics it is called “quantum entanglement”.  Bear with me, this is not as complicated…

JUST A MINUTE: FACING GOLIATH – A RAGING BULL OR A SITTING DUCK?

1st Oct 2019 . by incontext_adm

In 40 years of ministry, one of the key lessons I have learnt is that you always need to look at the ‘giants’ in the world through the lenses of an almighty, all-powerful and all-sufficient God. The past month once again revealed a number of global ‘giants’ that seem to be invincible and unbeatable. On…

31st Jul 2019 . by incontext_adm

Most of our perceptions and assumptions are established, shaped and maintained by the media we choose to be exposed to, and few generations have been as exposed to the scale of intentional media manipulation as the current one. President Ronald Reagan once said of liberals: “It isn’t so much that liberals are ignorant. It’s just that…
