I am a passionate believer in Jesus Christ as the Saviour of the world, the Lord of all and returning King who will judge the world, renew all things and reign over His eternal Kingdom with those who believe in Him.
I live in Melbourne Australia. I am married to Janine and have two adult sons, Jared and Liam, who all, thanks to God, share my passions and convictions about God, life and ministry.
Along with enjoying sport, music, movies and good food, I have a deep interest in current world events and assessing the rapidly changing social and political landscape in the context of God’s Word and Biblical Prophecy.
I have been a pastor, preacher and leader in Australian Churches for over 24 years.
My pursuit in life and for this world is to experience God’s ability to do immeasurably more than all we could ask or imagine according to His power (Eph. 3:20).
Thus the title of my Blog – Pursuing God’s Immeasurably More!
I embrace Bible based political conservatism and resist the liberal social agenda of “political correctness” which is largely a strategy to suppress common sense and truth speaking, especially pertaining to Christian beliefs and values.
Although I believe the Church is the Body of Christ and agent of His Kingdom on earth today, I also believe the Bible clearly teaches that Israel is God’s chosen nation and He has a special plan for her redemption and eternal significance.
Therefore, I strongly believe in God’s promises and covenant to Abraham in relation to the nation of Israel – “I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you” (Genesis 12:3)
I have decided to commence this blog so that I can speak my mind, share my heart and take a stand for some of my convictions about God, the Bible, life, the world, politics and culture. Such convictions can sometimes be suppressed or compromised when having to represent a particular church community, theology and practice or when there is inward and external pressure to avoid controversy and offence.
Some of my convictions and views may be “politically incorrect” in our “tolerant society” and therefore may not be popular or may even draw criticism from some outside and within the church.
However, I humbly pray that God will inspire my thoughts to please Him rather than man. Yet, I pray that God will use me to encourage those who read my posts to also raise their voice and take a stand at such a time as this!
