You can expect weekly updates, either on a specific Bible passage or aspects of theology which help us make sense of it all.

    If God forgives us, why should we do good deeds? | Matthew 7:15-23 | Justification #4

    If God forgives us, why should we do good deeds? | Matthew 7:15-23 | Justification #4

    What is Original Sin? | Justification #1 | Romans 5:12-21

    What is Original Sin? | Justification #1 | Romans 5:12-21

    Justification is probably one of the most important issues which Christians don't think much about. And yet, at the time of the reformation it was described as the doctrine on which the reformation would stand or fall. Why is it so important? In this new series, we delve into the topic of justification, following the 39 Articles - a document produced at the time of the reformation, part of the foundation of the Church of England. 

    The main passage in the video is Romans 5:12-21 - read online via BibleGateway. 

    You can read the 39 Articles (with updated English version) online via Church Society.
