Credo Magazine 6, 1 (2016)

The current issue of Credo is available, this one devoted to the topic of ‘Preach the Word’.

Matthew Barrett writes in the Editorial:

‘Some churches are so used to being fed soundbites from the culture, that sitting down and listening to a sermon for thirty minutes seems not only old fashioned but ridiculously burdensome. Other churches do hear preaching but it is anything but the preaching of “the word”...

‘Needless to say, this is not what the apostle Paul envisioned. Paul taught Timothy that it is absolutely essential to the spiritual health of God’s people to hear the Word itself. By expositing the scriptures, the people hear what God himself has to say, and they walk away knowing who God is, what he has done, and how they are to live according to his will.’

The magazine is available to read here, and a 16.4 MB pdf of the whole issue can also be downloaded here.
