WRF Member John Wilson Asks, "How Much Are You Spending in God's Beautiful Garden?"

I always thought it was a curious and lumbering name for a Christian organisation – but I never questioned it. It had always been there, or so it seemed to a six year old: the British and Foreign Bible Society. I knew for sure that I was British so, I wondered, who were the foreigners?

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part VI, "Will You Stand With Us?"

I invite you to support GAFCON. If you are already a supporter, please ask others to join also. Here are my reasons.

The need for the prophetic voice

No one wants to see an end to the Anglican Communion. That is why the Primates went to Canterbury.

Christ Jesus came into the world to save sinners. That is what the Bible tells us.

We are commanded to enter the kingdom of God by entrusting ourselves to Christ as our Lord and Saviour. That is, we enter and continue through repentance and faith.

WRF Member Rev, David Robertson, Moderator of the Free Church of Scotland, Discusses "The Two Faces of the Church of Scotland"

No sooner do I begin my new series of the state of the Church in Scotland than the Scottish Social Attitudes survey is published, resulting in headlines along the lines of ‘Atheists now the majority in Scotland’.

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part IV, "Repentance"

As we think through the significance of the meeting of Primates in Canterbury, we come to the key subject of repentance.

The issues before us have doctrinal and political aspects. But, finally, they are spiritual and that is why repentance matters.

WRF Member Rev. David Robertson Explains Why Scotland (and Most of the Rest of the West!) Needs an Easter Revolution

It’s Easter.  Time for Easter bunnies, crowded roads and of course Easter chocolate eggs.  But as regards the latter, not for long. Sainsbury’s, Nestle and Cadbury’s have apparently removed Easter from our seasonal chocolate. Why?

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part III, "Fellowship"

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part III, "Fellowship"

Fellowship, or Communion, is a very precious gift of the gospel. The Lord Jesus laid down his life for his Church, his Bride. Christians are united to Christ for their salvation. Inevitably, then, we are united with one another. We are all one in Christ Jesus.

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part I, "To Go Forward, We Must Go Back"

Since the Primates gathering in January I have been trying to assess its significance for the Anglican Communion.

WRF Member Dr. Peter Jensen, General Secretary of GAFCON, Takes Us "Back to the Basics," Part II, "Good Reading of the Good Book"

To assess the implications of the Primates’ gathering in January and what we have seen subsequently, I am suggesting that we go back to basics. The first point was the authority of the Bible over our consciences and over the churches. It is God’s word written.

WRF Member Clair Davis Discusses "How Can We Build Up the Body of Christ?"

WRF Member Clair Davis Discusses "How Can We Build Up the Body of Christ?"

How can we build up the church, the Body of Christ?  That is somewhat  like asking, “How do we, as individuals, grow in Christ?” If you read an old enough book, you’ll hear about “using the means of grace,” about reading the Bible, praying and going to church.

WRF Board Chairman Rick Perrin Discusses "Anglicans and the Crisis of Apostasy"

WRF Board Chairman Rick Perrin Discusses "Anglicans and the Crisis of Apostasy"

Apostasy is a nuclear bomb word.  For those who are not conversant with the ecclesiastical language of the Christian faith, it describes a wholesale and fundamental departure from the faith, so egregious that it places the offenders beyond the boundaries of what defines a Christian.
