Version 0ne "Go into all the world and make nonconfrontational relationships with all people. Esteem the relationship higher than sharing the Gospel with them. You don't want to offend people. You must earn the right to share with a spiritually dead person, how would feel if you told them about hell. Be considerate, and most importantly, don't share the Gospel." Version two "Go into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature." Mark 16:15 Which Bible version will you obey?

Spent yesterday in Wadebridge and today in Truro witnessing to the lost. Yesterday we joined other Christians in a 'Silent Witness' walking behind a large wooden cross through the town. It was a very windy day with not many people around and yet we handed out some one hundred tracts and we know many people were challenged. Today in Truro very windy yet more people. Preached an easter message by the cathedral with the usual ostrich reaction from passers by. However Gods word went out and in that I was obedient. We then went over to the Plazza and took a few people through the 'Good Person Test.' Some two hundred tracts were handed out and including 'Are you a good person?' to two on duty police officers! An observer shouted out 'Creep' seeing us approaching the police officers not realising what we were giving out, so he got one too! God is good and never wastes an opportunity.

I am currently working on a new project called 'Bridges of Cornwall County.' I'm travelling around photographing Cornish Bridges and compiling information about them. If you know of a bridge you feel should be included please e-mail with your reasons and the bridge location. Some photos can be viewed at the bottom of this page. Many Thanks.
Deeply disappionted with the BBC's Passion. Could only watch the first 20 minutes and wont be watching anymore episodes. Why? It was historically incorrect and portrayed another Jesus. The purchasing of the colt by Jesus from two passers by so he could ride into jerusalem was not scriptural. He sent two of his disciples into Bethpage were they would find a colt tied up which they were to loose and bring back Matthew 21:1-3. This alteration heavily implied Jesus was trying to make his actions fit Biblical prophecy. The scene with Jesus and a disciple mopping the brow of the sick man by the pool was awful. Jesus never mopped brows, he healed the sick were ever he went. I much preferred Mel Gibsons portrayal of Jesus because it stuck to scripture. I wonder if others would be so sympathetic if incorrect historical facts were put forward of other great world events. I think not.

The next time you encounter Jehovah Witnesses try this great tip. Ask them to read from their Bible translation (New World Translation) Revelation 1:8...ask them who is the Alpha and Omega? Then ask them to read from Revelation 22:13 and ask them who is the Alpha and Omega, the first and last? Finally ask them to read from Revelation 1:17-18 and ask them when did God die? Absolute scriptural proof that Jesus was God, come in the flesh.

The Pope has updated the original seven deadly sins to make them more contemporary. Many Bible Christians including myself protest at the Papacies claims to infallibilty and supreme spiritual authority of the church. Interestingly the term Vicar of Christ has only been used since the late four hundreds. Previously it was a term reserved solely for the Holy Spirit! God in his wisdom gave us the Ten Commandments which are eternally sufficient. Interestingly Jesus said "Till heaven and earth pass, one jot or one tittle shall in no wise pass from the law." I know who I would rather take notice of!

Had a wonderful time witnessing in Truro Saturday 1st March. Peter and I took many lost souls through the 'Good Person Test' with good results. I really felt many were close to the Kingdom. It's so encouraging to see the Holy Spirit at work in the hearts of the unconverted. Using the law in evangelism hits the target right were its needed most, in the conscience. Jesus promised us that when the Holy Spirit comes "he will reprove the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgement..." John 16:8. Reprove means to convict and convince. We are witnessing with our own eyes people who are convicted and convinced of thier wrong standing before God and their need to put that right through repentance and faith in Our Lord Jesus Christ. May God grant us many more oppurtunities to carry out His Royal Commission to "Go into all the world and preach the gospel."
