Book Give Away!

I wrote a new book which came out last Easter just after the first lockdown started, and so, well, even I sort of forgot about it. But, I eventually got my hands on a few copies, so, I'd like to give two of them away.  The book is about the theology of the founders of the Apostolic Church, so it should hopefully be of interest to Apostolic pastors, which means one of the copies is reserved for any pastor in the Apostolic Church. The other copy is for anyone in the UK (because international postage is too expensive, sorry!). Here's the link to enter the competition. (I've never tried making a competition before, so sorry if it's not the most slick!) There are four ways to enter.  1) Subscribe to the blog by email. 2) Follow me on Twitter. 3) Tweet about the competition using via the competition page above.  4) For the pastor copy, any pastor can email me at the address in the Apostolic Church UK Staff Address Book.  You can see the full table of contents on the Google b

Study Questions: Sin

Voila; some study questions to help you revise a bit of hamartiology (the doctrine of sin). Each week I'm going to post a set of questions covering part of one of the Tenets. This week it's the first part of the second Tenet, 'The utter depravity of human nature'.
I'm writing the questions for someone in my assembly, but hope they might be useful to other people as well. Have a read through them; see if you can answer them. They might serve to jog your memory; they might send you looking for answers.
As I said, they're study questions, so they're not designed to be too difficult. There are no trick questions here; just some good revision.
