Spirit of Complacency Bill Eddington
Does the Australian "man in the street" really understand what is going on beyond the shores of this relatively peaceful country? Our time is being compared by knowledgeable people and historians to the 1930s, the years that led up to the most devastating conflict in human history - World War 2. Unfortunately many people in Australia and similar countries are woefully unaware of those similarities and the significant events taking place around the world, particularly in Europe and the Middle East. Consequently a spirit of complacency is developing that could have dire consequences.
We need to carefully watch what is happening around the world from a biblical perspective, and pray that we don't become victims of the same spirit of complacency.

Other churches do not encourage speaking in tongues, and some even forbid it.

Saved by Grace? Bill Bradford
Are we saved by grace? Do we understand the grace of God? Do we respond correctly to God's grace? Where do works and the keeping of God's Law fit in with His grace? Eph 2:8-10 For by grace you have been saved...it is the gift of God, not of works... For we are His workmanship.
