The Heart of the Matter - Jesus on really long term investment

When Jesus bursts onto the scene in Ancient Israel some are hoping that he will lead a Jewish revolt against the Roman Empire. Some are hoping he will vindicate the spiritual teachings of the Jewish leaders. But what Jesus says challenges everything.

Jesus' most famous words are found in the Sermon on the Mount. It is considered one of the greatest speeches of all time. Why? Because Jesus' words cut to the heart of the matter. They are revolutionary, countercultural and as relevant today as in his day.

Sin & hope - partners incorporated

Sin.

It is an ugly word conjuring up ugly images. It is word associated with religious judgmentalism. Sin, it just sounds bad.

And yet, if there is no idea of wrong, failure and evil, that is sin, then there is no hope. But with the concept of sin hope opens up as a possibility.

There is hope of change and the alleviation of what is wrong. There is hope that things could be different. There is hope that we as human beings are not just subject to forces outside our control.

In the idea of sin there is hope.

City Christian groups

It is natural for Christians to meet and encourage each other

It is natural for Christians to meet and encourage each other as Christians, a bit like those in a soccer club meeting to practice soccer. As such, there are many Christian groups around the city. Some of these are in companies and others form around a natural connection.

The City Bible Forum aims to work in partnership with these groups where possible. However, the groups are independent of the City Bible Forum and are not led nor organised by the City Bible Forum. We would like to put you in touch with them if that would help you.
