Building A Strong Future
by Mr Benny Bong
We have a very stunning report card of our nation recently-with double-digit growth in our economy.
Who Am I? Being True in a Pluralistic Society
by Mr Paul Martin
The title of this talk is an identity question-who am I and how to be true in a pluralistic society.
Being Real in a Contrarian and Acquisitive World
by Rev Dr Daniel Koh
This world which God has given us as a home has gone through a few "tsunamic upheavals" in recent years.
Christian Engagement in a Diverse Society
by Dr Vinoth Ramachandra
Whether you are in Singapore, Sri Lanka or Great Britain, we live in societies where many people who are equally intelligent, sincere and of goodwill......
December 2009-January 2010
by Mr Brian Thomas
It is not enough for Christians to merely quote Scripture to people; we must be able to counter the basic assumptions held by people of other faiths, as well as be able to defend our own assumptions
Saying Yes Is As Important as Saying No - Humanity and the Christian Faith
by Prof Alastair V Campbell
I am glad to have a chance to speak because I know how concerned and dedicated you are, not only to care for people here in Singapore, but also to care for people in need, wherever that may be.
The Practice of Law and the Practice of Grace and Truth
by Mr Richard Magnus
As lawyers, judicial and legal officers as well as in-house counsel, we are to obey and practise the law. I use the word “practise” in a wide sense to include private and public practice. Our professionalism, integrity and our competence are presumed
Christian Disciplines in Times of Economic Challenges
by Dr Lee Soo Ann
When I agreed to this topic several months ago, I hardly realised how rapidly the economy would deteriorate. Today, we have the restructuring of the financial services industry in the U.S and Europe, a slowdown in China and deterioration in the Singapore economy itself. These are indeed challenging times but what I intend to say is applicable also to “good times”, perhaps more so.
Organ Trading: A Christian Perspective
by Dr Roland Chia
What is the Christian perspective on the issue of the trading of human organs? Obviously, the Bible does not address this issue directly. A Christian response must therefore enquire into what the Bible has to say about what it means to be human, what is the moral status of the human body, and what are the implications of putting a price tag on the human body and its parts.
Serving the Lord in Our Generation
by Dr Bobby Sng
The topic you gave me for tonight is “Serving the Lord in Our Generation”. Really the meat of this evening’s service was the three testimonies that were given just now. I am really touched by what our brothers are saying concerning how the Lord has dealt with them and is using them be it as a student, someone stationed overseas or in Dalian, China
The Great Omission
by Mrs I'Ching Thomas
All of us are familiar with Jesus’ last words to His disciples: “And Jesus came and said to them, "All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of all nations, baptising them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I have commanded you. And behold, I am with you always, to the end of the age."
The Christian Response to the Liberal Agenda
by Professor Dr. Thio Li-ann
Christians are born again to resist the spirit of the age. Francis Schaeffer noted in The God who is There, “the Christian must resist the spirit of the world in the form it takes in his own generation.” This requires both discernment and personal resolution not to be taken captive “through hollow and deceptive philosophy which depends on human tradition and the basic principles of the world, rather than Christ.” (Colossians 2:8).
The Anatomy of A Calling
by Bishop Dr Robert Solomon
From young I had wanted to be a doctor. I was born into a Christian family and was baptised on Christmas Day when I was less than a year old. It was my privilege to grow up attending church, being part of the Sunday School, and to learn about the Christian faith. In my first few years, I did not know any other religion except Christianity.
Marks of a True Christian: Romans 12
by Dr Steve Griffiths
The letter of Romans was written to the church already existing in Rome. We must not imagine a large building with hundreds of Christians coming and going. We need to forget St Peter's and the Vatican! Chapter 16 gives us a better picture of what the Roman church was like- a number of small groups in houses where Christians gathered for worship, prayer, teaching and communion. There were possibly around a hundred Christians or so in a city of at least a million. Paul hoped to use the Roman Church as a springboard to get to Spain and so he dictated this letter to Tertius during the early days of AD 57.
The Power of the Internet – What We Cannot Ignore
by Dr Tan Tee Khoon
Internet awareness is of utmost importance because it is our youths who are making it so popular. The Net is a way of life for the great majority of them and succeeding generations will consider the world some of us grew up in—without modems and instant messages—crusty as the Stone Age. The Net is fast becoming the way youths communicate.
Is Our Public Square Naked?
by Richard Magnus
Is our public square naked? If naked, with what ‘fig leaves’ do we clothe the nakedness? What is the Christian answer to this issue? Is Christianity a civilisational religion? What are the choices: a theocratic public square or a theonomous one, within the context of an heteronomous culture.
Changing Times, Unchanging Vision
by Dr Bobby E.K. Sng
What role could Christian graduates play? What kinds of contribution could they make? It did not take long before that small group of graduates agreed that God had brought them together precisely for such a time as this. They all shared a common vision and decided to form the Graduates’ Christian Fellowship.
