Below I have provided links to other websites that I believe will be useful to you if you are interested in learning more about Christianity. I do not say that I agree with every view expressed or every conclusion reached, nor do I say that I agree with the approach taken in every case. This is not the point. The point is that the information is available, so please browse, consider, and make up your own mind.
First and foremost, the most important resource that you need is, of course, the Bible:
- www.bible.com The "About us" page says: "Bible.com is the #1 Bible resource on the Web - encompassing various translations, languages, scriptures, studies, and dynamic Biblically-based content. Our online Christian Community offers visitors a place to gather, learn, interact, and share the Bible's teachings. Website users can access a host of tools, news, articles, and products pertaining to the Bible - presented in an interesting, captivating and engaging way. Our Site covers such areas as kids, family, culture, and more based upon Biblical principles."
- www.audio-bible.com As the name suggests, you can hear the King James version of the Bible being read to you in a rich and pleasant English accent.
- bibledatabase.net Read the Bible online in a number of different languages. There's also a discussion forum where you can ask any relevant questions or submit your own thoughts. Everyone welcome.
If you want an easily acccessible layman's introduction to the faith, try:
- Looking For God
United Christian Broadcasters (UCB) is an evangelical radio station, but they also publish a daily devotional called "The Word For Today" (free on request) and this website, which is specifically aimed at people who are wanting to find God.
- Re. Jesus
"Rejesus has a single focus - it goes to the very heart of Christian life and faith - the person of Jesus Christ himself. Its aim is to reach people who have little previous knowledge of Jesus or the Christian faith and to encourage a step or two of faith. Every visitor has the opportunity to delve into engaging material and respond to it by giving their opinion, praying a prayer, or asking a tough question."
Next, what about some articles on Christian doctrine. Have a look at these:
- www.Acts17-11 Some studies by an American couple called Dean and Laura van Druff (plus some other stuff which may or not be of interest to you).
- www.carm.org The Christian Apologetics and Research Ministry (which is fairly self-explanatory).
- www.audiochristian.com Downloadable (for free) audio teaching from Keith Gerner, who was the closest thing to a mentor that I ever had.
Here are some sites of general interest:
- Christ for All Nations, the minstry of international evangelist Reinhard Bonnke. Reinhard is best known for his massive outreach rallies across Africa. (This site may take a few moments to load.)
- Answers in Genesis. Science-based information and resources that underline the reliability of the Biblical record and cast doubt upon the validity of the atheistic evolutionary position.
- Christian Blind Mission. What one organisation is doing to relieve the suffering of many blind and otherwise disabled people throughout the world.
- Open Doors. During the days of the Cold War and the Iron Curtain, "Brother Andrew" began to reach out to the persecuted Christians in the USSR. The ministry has increased to cover the globe, because religious persecution is prevalent on every continent.
- Joyce Meyer, the straight-talking, tell-it-like-it-is preacher whose down-to-earth honesty has given fresh hope to many.
