God said to Moses, "I AM who I AM. This is what you will say to the Israelites: I AM has sent me to you."
[Exodus 3:14]


I tell you the truth," Jesus answered, "before Abraham was, I AM."
[John 8:58]



This website contains moderate Christian views and promotes religious tolerance.

This website has been developed to assist anyone who feels the need for Christian faith in their life. It is here to assist, without preaching or cajoling.

It tries hard to answer the questions: What is God? Is God real?
Can we prove God exists? What are Christianity's basic beliefs?

"FAITH" AND "REASON" ARE GOOD FRIENDS

There has been much said and written to oppose the path of Christian faith, particularly by the New Atheism Movement. In all honesty, I was a pretty good atheist in my day, so I know how it works. And I still completely understand how  the knowledge, and acceptance of "faith", held by believers in this day and age can look too good to be true, as far as the average unbeliever in concerned! However, now after decades of practising Christianity I also know my old attitude was way off course. The "Faith and Reason" section of this website has been written to logically challenge the inaccuracies of an atheist worldview. For examples: modern science and moderate religious theology are not in conflict, believable theories about God's nature are available, the differences between the major religions of the world can be explained to a large extent, and suffering and evil in this world does not disprove that God exists. Yes, faith and reason can get along quite well, thank you!

HOW TO REALLY BELIEVE IN GOD

Truly, all that is needed as a starting point for ‘belief’ is an open mind. I could also say we actually have to be ready to believe. The "How to Believe" section of this website is devoted to guidance on how anyone can come to believe in God. Of course, that belief must be based on sound reasoning! Essentially, we search for 'evidence' of God's existence. And we need go no further afield than to recognise his presence  within both our day-to-day lives and events in the church itself. We just have to know how to identify and analyse this evidence. And trust me, sometimes it can be profound, if we are willing to take the appropriate steps that are on offer. As an ex-atheist I again concede this may all sound a bit too good to be true, but bear with me and read with that 'open mind' I referred to earlier.

CHRISTIANITY EXPLAINED SIMPLY

There are many misconceptions about Christianity held within the broader community. When truly understood and practised, Christianity has the capacity to significantly change lives for the better. With that in mind, the essence of Christianity is presented in the final section of this website. Whereas the "Faith and Reason" section of the website includes an explanation of what God is, the "Christianity Explained" section includes an understanding of who God is. Oh, I might add that all major Biblical jargon, such as "saved", "grace", "redeemed", "justified" is also explained there.
