James: Just Do It – What to Do With Prejudice

Prejudices are a huge trait in our society today, and sadly, it always has been and always will be. It is unfavourable treatment, usually based on discrimination against race, colour or gender. In this third part of the “Just Do It” series, Charles Price teaches about the sinfulness of favouritism, prejudices, discrimination, whatever label we put on it, being an injustice to our fellow beings, and turning those guilty of it into ‘lawbreakers’. Scripture never leaves us with the diagnosis alone, but with the remedy, which is what James calls ‘The Royal Law’.

James: Just Do It – What to Do in Temptation

There are two problems we have when reading the Bible. One is a mental problem where we do not understand it, and the other is volitional where we do understand it, but do nothing about it. Mark Twain once said, “The parts of Scripture that I dislike most are not the parts I don’t understand, but the parts I do.” That is because they place demands on us. This week, Charles Price begins a new series from the book of James, which like no other book in the New Testament addresses the issue of doing what it says.

James: Just Do It – What to Do in Trials

There are two problems we have when reading the Bible. One is a mental problem where we do not understand it, and the other is volitional where we do understand it, but do nothing about it.

Job: From Tragedy To Triumph – Making Sense of Nonsense

The book of Job is built around Satan’s challenge to God in regard to Job; an upright, blameless man, described as the greatest man among all the people of the East. Satan is confident he can break Job down, and God gives him permission to try. Despite the horrendous suffering Satan inflicts on him, Job remains loyal to God. Charles Price concludes this series by bringing to light three factors in Job’s response to God that will help us in our own situations of grief and despair.

Easter 2016: New Birth Through the Resurrection of Jesus Christ

The resurrection of Jesus Christ is fundamental to the Christian faith. It is a non-negotiable fact, and indispensable to what it means to be a Christian. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, commemorates Easter Sunday with a rich exposition on a new birth we are given in Jesus Christ, because of His resurrection, and the living hope we have in Him by being born again of the Spirit.

Job: From Tragedy To Triumph – God Speaks Out of the Storm

Interestingly, in God’s response to Job, He does not once refer to Job’s suffering, nor to the role Satan played, but for four chapters speaks of Himself. It is the closest autobiography we are given of God in Scripture, and is remarkable for both what God says and what He does not say. This week, Charles Price explains the connotations of God’s response, which gives Job an entirely new perspective. Throughout his ordeal, Job had heard nothing from God until He speaks out of the storm, and from this, we learn important aspects about the silence of God in our darkest times.

Job: From Tragedy To Triumph – Delusions about the Dominion and Discipline of God

Job has four friends who come to console him in his time of suffering, but end up condemning him, because they are convinced he has committed sin against God. Last week, we heard how Eliphaz and Bildad arrived at their conclusions as to why Job was suffering. This week, Charles Price takes an in depth look at what Zophar and Elihu have to say. All their conclusions are built on false premises, and we come to understand any reasoning for one’s suffering must be rooted in the love of God if we are going to be of comfort.

Job: From Tragedy To Triumph – Job’s Miserable Comforters

Four friends of Job, Eliphaz, Bildad, Zophar and Eluid hear of the catastrophe that had befallen Job, and set out to visit him with intentions of sympathizing and comforting. Instead, they end up accusing, criticizing and condemning. Job calls them ‘miserable comforters’. Author and Bible teacher, Charles Price, gives us insight into the explanations for Job’s suffering as given by his first two friends, Eliphaz and Bildad. From it, we learn what not to assume as to why we are suffering, and what not to say or presume when comforting others in their suffering.

Job: From Tragedy to Triumph – Depression and Hope

Suffering is a part of life we all experience at some point. The day comes when our expectations are suddenly broken, our security undermined and our peace taken from us. Things we fear will happen can happen, and this is when the Book of Job is particularly relevant. This week, Charles Price explains a process that takes place in our suffering where sorrow and depression are turned to strength and hope when faith is all we have.

Job: From Tragedy to Triumph – A Look Behind the Scenes

No one will argue the fact we live in a broken, fallen world. There are countless victims of evil atrocities all over the globe, and we empathize with their losses, pain and suffering. But when it strikes home to the ones we love, it is an entirely different picture that many would have immense difficulty with. This week, Charles Price begins a new series from the book of Job in which the whole question of suffering is explored; its causes and explanations, and most importantly, what can be redeemed from it.
