Transcript

  • 1. Christianity: Boring, Untrue and Irrelevant? This material is used with permission on www.mygospelweb.net
  • 2. ‘ I have been to church today and I am not depressed’ Robert Louis Stevenson
  • 3. ‘ I might have entered the ministry if certain clergymen I knew had not looked and acted so much like undertakers’ Oliver Wendell Holmes
  • 4. Hospital chaplain : Would you like Holy Communion? Answers : ‘No thanks, I’m Church of England ‘ No thanks, I asked for Cornflakes’ ‘ No thanks, I’ve never been circumsized’
  • 5. ‘ For all the advances of science, there remains deep in the soul (if I dare use that word), a persistent and unconscious anxiety that something is missing, some ingredient that makes life worth living’ Prince Charles
  • 6. ‘ Is there any meaning in my life which will not be annihilated by the inevitability of death which awaits me? Leo Tolstoy
  • 7. ‘ Does anyone know what we are living for?’ ‘ You can have everything in the world and still be the loneliest man, and that is the most bitter type of loneliness. Success has brought me world idolisation and millions of pounds, but it’s prevented me from having the one thing we all need – a loving, ongoing relationship Freddy Mercury
  • 8. ‘ Gott sei mitt uns’ Adolf Hitler
  • 9. Yorkshire Ripper ‘ I am doing God’s will’
  • 10. ‘ I am the way and the truth and the life’ Jesus Christ
  • 11. ‘ Christianity is a statement which, if false, is of no importance, and, if true of infinite importance’ C.S. Lewis
  • 12. ‘ I have been used for many years to studying the histories of other times, and to examining and weighing the evidence of those who have written about them, and I know of no one fact in the history of mankind which is proved by better and fuller evidence of every sort, to the understanding of a fair enquirer, than the great sign which God has given us that Christ died and rose again from the dead’ Prof. Thomas Arnold Chair of modern history Oxford University
  • 13. ‘ In 1960 Californian millionaire James McGill died. He left detailed instructions that his body should be preserved and frozen in the hope that one day scientists might discover a cure for the disease that killed him. There are hundreds of people in Southern California who have put hopes of one day living again in this process which freezes and preserves human bodies. The latest development in Cryonics technology is called neuro-suspension which preserves just the human head. One reason why it is becoming popular is that is much cheaper than preserving and maintaining a whole body. It reminds me of Woody Allen in Sleeper , where he preserved his nose.’
  • 14. ‘ And this is the way to have eternal life –to know you, the only true God, and Jesus Christ the one you sent to earth’ Jesus Christ
  • 15. ‘ My purpose is to give life in all its fullness’ Jesus Christ
  • 16. Please, let us pray this prayer: Dear Lord Jesus, I give my life to you as a my Lord and my personal saviour so that my Joy will be full. Lord Jesus, I dedicate my soul, spirit and body to you. I know you have delivered and saved me . Amen.
