If you have been craving sermons and are unsure where to go to find them, I can recommend audioverse.org. This is a great site where you can type in any topic and there are sermons on them. Obviously I can’t be certain all will be perfect as far as doctrine is concerned, however, there is a lot of Gold hidden there…
A few good sermons to get you started:
Dennis Priebe – The Real Gospel - An expose on the differences between the two gospels that are being preached in our churches. Very important sermon.
Gabriel Arruda – testimony about how Gabriel was protected from the entertainment industry and came to work for God. He does have things I don’t quite agree with relating to prophecy (nothing too crazy though!), however the testimony is very interesting.
Paul Volk – What the Experts Are Telling Us – Very interesting testimony about health. Very practical message.
Also Dwayne Lemon, Eugine Prewitt have some interesting stuff (leave a comment if you can recommend any preachers or specific sermons on audioverse).
Also, if you have an iPhone or Android device, there is a great app that makes listening and downloading easier. (sadly no windows phone … hint, hint if you are reading this audible crew).
This is a very tough topic to cover, as generally it is received with a fairly emotional reaction. The bible tends to be pushed aside for feelings or cultural norms. But what does the bible actually say? And importantly what are the implications of it? Will women’s ordination actually help the churches to grow, or will it simply cause people to go to other churches who uphold the bible and the bible alone? It is interesting how clear the evidence is for this. Here are a few videos that cover this topic:

Important Version Information
The PAL version of the DVD is set up very well now, so you can select chapters, and watch the trailer, plus has menu music (this is very difficult to set up, so if you want to make copies for people in Australia, I suggest you get at least a copy of this to save yourself the hassle of set up)
Due to technical difficulties, the NTSC version doesn’t have menus. The movie is still high quality though, and all works well.
There is also a bulk version (DVD in plastic sleeve), and or a version with a Standard DVD case (the same as any DVD movie). The disc is identical in both versions.
What is NTSC / PAL
NTSC is the US format for DVDs
PAL is the UK / Australia / Japan format for DVDs
If you have a DVD player less than 5 years old, you can likely play either PAL or NTSC DVDs without any problem no matter where you are.
Also, remember you can always just give your friends the link to watch the video on youtube for free!
This is a very interesting project by the guys at little light about how martial arts can direct us away from God. If you have been into martial arts, or still are, remember to keep an open mind. This isn’t a production designed to set rules in stone about what you can and can’t do, but rather to warn you of potential danger. Thanks heaps to the guys at little light for releasing the first 1h for free. If you gain a blessing and wish to learn more, they will have a second part available in the next few months here for a very small contribution.
There has been a significant amount of progress since Colin T Campbell and his colleges did the China Study (if you haven’t read the book, you should). In the following video, Dr Michael Greger from Nutritionfacts.org takes us through nutrition science that has come to light over the last year. As always the science seems to very strongly indicated that a plant based diet is the best way to avoid the leading causes of death.
It is interesting that faith comes by hearing the word of God… This is in a spiritual sense, however for me the blessing I have gained from listening to the bible has been difficult to measure. I personally am a rather poor reader, but I have found the bible comes alive when listening to it.
There are a number of very good audio bibles out there, I really like Alexander Scourby’s reading of the KJV (you can get it from the apple app store or the android marketplace or simply buy the mp3s to use on your computer or tablet www.scourby.com).
Lately I have been attempting to get my children more interested in learning the word. Many point to other bible versions that have simpler wording… sadly, the distortion of the word in these versions tends to make this counter productive. Thankfully there is another option. I have found they seem to understand far more clearly the dramatization of the King James Bible found at www.bible.is. This is a great site that has audio bibles in many many languages. There are also apps on the Android and Apple stores. The best part is, they are free.
