And if there is…

nacworld in an interview with Reinhard Kiefer: Faith (part 4 of 8)

Welcome to a further nacworld interview with Reinhard Kiefer, where the subject is “faith”. One of the first questions is to do with laws and repealing them: Why did God firstly give Moses, and therefore also his people, statutes (as written in the books of Moses) and then, later, abolish them? How does that meet the words of Jesus, “Do not think that I came to destroy the Law or the Prophets. I d…

"You will be my witness..." - 2000 years after Christ's Ascension we have a clearly defined mission.

"... but you shall receive power when the Holy Spirit has come upon you; and you shall be witnesses to Me in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the end of the earth.” Jesus Ascends to Heaven Now when He had spoken these things, while they watched, He was taken up, and a cloud received Him out of their sight. And while they looked steadfastly toward heaven as He went up, behold, two me…

The Day of Prayer and Repentance 2013: reflecting on one’s own sinfulness allows indulgence in forgiving the sins of others.

Christians celebrate the Day of Prayer and Repentance on Wednesday, 20th November 2013. The text for the evening’s divine service is found in Psalms 145: 8 and 9. “The Lord is gracious and full of compassion, slow to anger and great in mercy.

The text for the month of November 2013: the attributes of the flock of Christ: listen, recognise, follow

Jesus once likened His followers to a little flock (Luke 12: 32). This description remains unchanged today. It describes all Christianity, including us, as New Apostolic Christians, all over the world. By comparison with the total population of the world we are not very many. We are a small flock and will probably remain so until the end of time. If we were to take a sober look at the history of t…

What we love about our faith (Word of the Month August 2013) - Why do you love your faith?

The motto of a recent youth service in Berlin, Germany - “Loving faith, living faith, sharing faith” - really spoke to me. And I must say that it was the first part, namely “loving faith”, that moved me the most. What does it mean to love our faith? Right off the top we could say: “I love going to the divine services and I love getting together with the brothers and sisters.” But there is somethin…
