Grounded in the Gospel

Christians worldwide are putting efforts to spread the good news of the gospel. The recently concluded Alpha conference in Kuching reminded me of the work at hand. Alpha is a worldwide phenomenon that was pioneered by Nicky Gumble of Holy Trinity Church, London.

Historically, the Church’s ministry of grounding new believers in basic Christianity is known as catechesis.

Many who are familiar with the Catholic faith will be able to identify with the term catechism. The Catholic Church usually have catechism classes for their members.

In the early days of Christianity, many claimed to be Christians but did not know Christ. In order to reverse this trend, greats like Luther and Calvin restored the office of catechist to the Church – hence, catechism. Interestingly, Reformers like Luther and Calvin influenced the Roman Catholic Church in taking catechism seriously. Roman Catholic undertook catechesis with vigour, but the evangelicals have been left behind in this area.

Where once Roman Catholic learnt from the evangelicals, it now appeared that it is the evangelical Protestants who have much to learn from them.

However, most importantly the good news of the gospel is spread to many non believers regardless of which denomination is taking the lead.

People of Mongolia

Here is a slide show of people of Mongolia taken when a group of our Church members and friends went there in 2005 under Habitat for Humanity program to help build some houses for the needy. There were many humble and simple people there. As for me I enjoyed my time sharing a little with those needy folks. Those people appreciated our help, yet we ourselves were also very happy and blessed to help out!

'It is more blessed to give than to receive.' Act 20:35

Sunday Service 25th April, 2010

This morning, Brother Teck Hwa led the Lord's Supper. Before, the prayers for the Lord's Supper, he blew the shofar ( trumpet made from ram horn. See picture), to signal a new beginning for FBC. He has this burden in his heart for FBC and our revival. Few weeks ago he blew the trumpet in the pre-service prayer meeting. Brother Malcolm invited him to share with all three congregations, the Iban, Chinese and English this morning.

Prayer and Consecration

This is the topic of his sharing this morning. Few weeks ago Brother Teck refered to Joel 2:15 "Blow the trumpet in Zion, declare a holy fast, call a sacred assembly". Our congregation were called to fast last week for this morning, because the Church wants to follow through with God's message for FBC. Our God is Holy Isaiah 6:3 and Revelation 4:8.

Command of our Lord, 1Peter 1:16. Luke 10:27 "Love the Lord your God with all your heart..., We are not to acknowlede any other gods, Hosea 13:4. We are to seek His kingdom Matt 6:33. We need to be close to God, John 15:4 "Remain in me, and I remain in you.... We have deceitful heart Jeremiah 17:9. Isreal went against God Jeremiah 7:23-4. We are to guard our heart Proverb 4:23.

God can purify us, cut off every branches John 15:2. Many will be purified Daniel 12:10, our Lord will circumcise our heart Deut 30:6. Let God create in us a pure heart Psalm 51:10, teach us His ways Psalm 86:11, God give us an undivided heart Ezekiel 11:19.

Brother Teck Hwa also blew a modern trumpet. Watch the video.
From 2010-04-25Sunday Service

Brother Teck Hwa presented a shofar to our Church and it was received by the leaders of the three congregations.

Later Brother Teck Hwa called the congregation to step up front to be prayed for and many stepped forward. A sister was slained by the Holy Spirit.

Praise God for Brother Teck Hwa and also glory to God for lifting up the spirit of our Church! Oh God we thank you and praise you Amen.

Amazing Three Year Old Artist

Three-year-old artist Aelita Andre poses with a few of her paintings on display at the Art Melbourne 2010 exhibition April 23, 2010. Andre, whose work is in major collections across Europe, Asia and the United States, recently sold a painting to an overseas buyer for AUD$28,000.

This is amazing and indeed testify to the greatness of our God who created human with extraordinary talents. It is literally child play in painting her masterpieces!

Praise God! All Glory to our Amazing God!

Video below when she was two.

Francis Chan Leaving Mega Church

Recently I blogged about how Pastor John Piper and Pastor Francis Chan humbled themselves before God.

Just read news that Francis is leaving mega Church Corner Stone, Simmi Valley, California because he is following God's call for him to venture to new areas. It is such an inspiration to hear of such dedicated man of God, who is always ready to give up all for God. He founded Corner Stone in the 80's and built it to, if not mistaken a congregation of 6,000 members now. Just to leave all these....Wow! Praise God for him!

Few years back he did struggle about leaving. Now he is fully trusting the Lord. He said "There's no fear in going out ... off with the Lord," he said. "He's proven to me that He's with me; He loves me; I love Him."

He wrote a best selling book Crazy Love and most of the earnings from this book were given to the Church.

Hat's off to such a dedicated disciple of Jesus. I certainly can learn from him.

Is Jesus the Only Way to Salvation?

This is a tricky question for many. Probably many Christians wondered how one should response to this question. Doubting may not be a sin, but if one believed the truth of the Bible, this question should not be a problem.

Basically there are three stands regarding this question.

1. Pluralism – Pluralists believed that there are many paths to God. People do not have to believe in Jesus to be saved. One prominent pluralist is Professor John Hick, Philosopher of Religion, U.K
2. Inclusivism – Although Jesus has done work to bring us back to God, people can also be saved by responding positively to creation perhaps even through other religions. People do not need to know Christ to be saved. E.g of inclusivist , Clark Pinnock, Christian Theologian, Canada.
3. Exclusivism – Exclusivists said Jesus is the only Saviour and only through Jesus one can be saved. People like John Piper, Senior Pastor of Bethlehem Baptist Church, Theologian, Bruce Ware, Professor of Christian Theology are exclusivists.

If you are a true believer and believe in the truth of the Bible, you would certainly be an exclusivist. Personally I feel that as a Christian we certainly have to subscribe to the view that only through Christ we can be saved. It is also stated very clearly in John 14:6 “I am the way, and the truth, and life. No one comes to the Father except through me”. Apostle Paul confirmed saying “And there is salvation in no one else, for there is no other name under heaven given among men by which we must be saved”. ( Act 4:12)

Hallelujah! Jesus alone is the Saviour!

Sunday Service April 18th 2010

In the pre-service prayer Sister Sarah shared on Acts 2:16 about what Prophet Joel said in the last day and also about Brother Teck Hwa blowing the trumpet. Brother Teck Hwa continued and read Joel Ch. 2 "Blow the trumpet in Zion, sound the alarm on my holy hill. Let all who live in the land tremble." He has a burden on his heart to share about what the Lord is doing in FBC and that the Church is going to do something new. He called for the Church to fast and pray which was later affirmed by Brother Malcolm in a short annoucement in Church.

Our Church had the privilege to host Brother Foo Lai Wei, National Director, Alpha Malaysia, his wife, Sister Joanna of Alpha as well as Kudip also of Alpha.

Brother Foo shared that the concluded Alpha Conference was the best one he has ever attended. He praised the organisation and organiser Sister Perpetua Pang. More so he said Kuching can be the center to reach out to West Malaysia and beyond. Christians here are united in one accord, and it is time to reach out.

Brother Foo share on Luke 10:1-4, where the passage said the harvest is plenty and the workers are few. He said this was written thousand of years ago, yet it is still true today. He encouraged all of us to do something and evangelise to win souls for Christ.

Many people thought it is sowing time, but God said it is harvest time. If only one Christian can win a soul a year, the result can be tremendous according to him.

Personal Note

I learnt that Brother Foo worship at FGA Kuala Lumpur which incidentally was also my former Church when I worked in KL. In fact, I was baptised there a while back. While praying for me in Church I shared with him this information and he was glad that he has met someone from his home Church. I am still keeping in touch with my friends from FGA, and worship there when I go to KL.

Alpha Course Conference

The two-day Alpha Conference has just been concluded today. Overall, it was very well organised. The organising committee was headed by Ms Perpatua Pang, Catholic Church, Kuching. The Board of Alpha Malaysia was so impressed by the organisation as well as the numerous Christians in Sarawak that they announced the setting up of Alpha branch office in Kuching.

It was a very good conference. I learnt something new so that I can use them to evangelise to the non believers. What was amazing was that so many denominations from so many countries came together to pray for each others as well as for our Churches throughout Malaysia and the regions regardless of our differences. Praise God for moving in our midst!

Participants came from Australia, Brunei, Singapore, Mymmar, Philipines, China, India, Sri Lanka, Vietnam and Indonesia.

Pastor John Piper on Leave from Ministry

Pastor John Piper, my favourite theologian and pastor is going on leave of absence for eight months. So what is the big deal? Well, it is because of his noble intention to re-assess his soul, his relationship with his family, his pride and his idolatry level . Yes, recently in our Life Group (LG) we were studying the subject of humility and his action helped me to relate what he is doing and how we also can be humble. As you know many well know evangelists have fallen out of grace because of pride and indulging in worldly luxuries. In the word of one of Piper’s staffer, this is to prevent “prideful sipping from the poisonous cup of international fame and notoriety'" Many people have applauded Piper for his honesty and pre-emptive disconnection from ministry rather than punitive disconnection that we have seen among celebrity pastors. He humbles himself by withdrawing from public lime light and to ensure he is not making an “idol” out of his ministry.

We ordinary people are no different, amongst our own we can be prideful. We have to ensure and be wary not to allow our “fame” to get into our head.

Pastor Francis Chan of Corner Stone Community Church, Simi Valley, California is also much aware of the pitfalls of becoming too popular. Watch a video below. For more information about Pastor Chan, log on to Wikipedia or search

Kuching Waterfront Extension

Last weekend my wife and I took a walk along the Kuching Waterfront extension to see for ourselves what had been done to the waterfront. Reconstruction is almost done. We were pleasantly surprised by the beauty of our waterfront. It is nostalgic for me because I was brought up at the corner shop near Brooke Dockyard called “Chip Pung Hui”. Previously my father had a sundry shop at the same place. You can see this shop in the slide.

From the old section of waterfront starting from Hotel Margarita to the new area at Brooke dockyard the distance is slightly more than 2 KM. Good for a little sweat in the morning or evening.

The local government is applying to list Kuching as a heritage city. To be eligible, UNESCO specified that this city should be significant to human civilization.

Sarawak had a unique history. It was not ruled by a foreign power, but by the Brooke family of UK from 1841 to 1941. One can witness the British influence from the British style architectures in many buildings like Old Court House, Old Post Office, the Round Tower and others.

Readers from Kuching should take a walk along the new extension, you will enjoy it. “Smell the roses” so to speak. Readers from outside of Kuching you are most welcome to this beautiful and clean city. You can see a glimpse of Kuching on the video below. Done by a fellow Kuching person I found on You tube.

Sunday Service 11th April, 2010

We had the previlege of having Dr. Tommy Chung again to preach a message to us this Sunday. His subject is below:

Playing By the Rules

Haggai Ch. 2: 10 – 23

We need to examine our priorities. Have we put God first in what we do? Put God first in all we do, follow His laws and we can be sure of His blessings.

Spiritual Principles – Haggai Ch 2:10. This is seen through the eye of the new covenant. What is it? There was a difference between the moral and ceremonial laws of the Jew. Ceremonial defilement still applies to this day. The unholy cannot be sanctified by the holy. The Israelites fought the greatest battle in Jericho, but in Ai they were defeated. Why? Because they have broken God’s covenant by stealing defiled things from collapsed Jericho.
He quoted Ecclesiastes Ch 10:1 “As dead flies give perfume a bad smell”. Meaning one foolish step can set one back. David moved the Ark of Covenant using a cart which was not according to God’s instruction. It was supposed to be carried on poles. When Uzzah tried to steady the Ark on the cart, he was struck dead. David did not follow God’s instructions.

Spiritual Principles from New Testament – Matt Ch15:17-18 Jesus said it is not what goes into the mouth that defiled a person, but what comes out of it. In 2 Timothy 2:5 an athlete can only get the winning prize if he played by the rules.

Clean and Unclean – Haggai 2:15 ensures everything we offer to God is clean and according to the law of God. Everything we do do not use “underhanded” ways. Unclean services or methods that contradict God’s principles are not allowed. The glory must go back to God. The Book of Haggai talks about the sin of negligence, sin of backsliding and sin of half hearted service.

Rebuilding our Church - Haggai 2: 15-17. Dr. Chung especially referred this to FBC. How do we rebuild again?
a) clean up our acts, b) Have complete trust of our Lord c) do not look around ourselves, do not worry about the numbers, today God will bless us. God promised us blessings. He quoted Habakkuk 3:17-19, although there is no harvest, no sheeps in the pen, we are to rejoice in the Lord.

Final Warning – Haggai 2:20-22. We must do things God’s ways and obey His commands. He will pour His blessings unto us.

Friday Life Group Meeting

Our Friday meeting was at Dr.Wong's home. Once again, many thanks to Bro Wong and Sister Chuei Lian for letting our LG to use their home.

We discussed last Sunday sermon by Dr.Chung on "The Cross and Resurrection". We had good sharing.

We moved on to the disciple series, "Humility", led by Dr.Wong. He gave us notes to read for the next meeting. Humility is an important subject for us because we as Christians have to re examine ourselves and ask whether we are humble or not. Dr.Wong quoted C.L Lewis, like "If you want to know how proud you are the easiest way is to ask yourself, how much do I dislike it when other people snub me, or refuse to take any notice of me, or shove their oar in, or patronize me or show off?" The view of the world is that humility is inferior and sees a low view of oneself, however, C.S Lewis said "humility is not a low view of one self but an accurate view".

I think one main point is that we must have a servant heart like Jesus Christ. He is God yet He came to be human to serve the ordinary peole. It is not easy for us, but He showed us an example. Having a servant heart does not mean just believing it, but putting our belief into actions - actions to demonstrate that we are humble. There is a issue of communication in relating to others, you may think you are a humble person, but others may think otherwise. The challenge is to demonstrate that we are indeed humble, and people agree with you. This is not to say, we are proud that people recognise us as being humble, but to display Christ-like attitudes and behaviours. It is a fine line between humility and pride.

After the meeting we celebrated the birthdays of a brother and two sisters with a birthday cake. You can see these pictures in the slide.

Passing of a Dear Friend

I received with sadness the passing of my dear friend Mrs.Cooke of Windsor, Canada recently. She was 77 years and died in her sleep.

I got to know Mrs.Cooke 31 years ago when I was a student in Windsor. We wrote to each other at least once a year for the past 30 years.(especially during Christmas) She was the Canadian "auntie" to me as well as my friends. We used to be invited to her house for meals especially during festives times like Thanks giving day, and Christmas. She was a lovely and friendly person who made us felt at home since we were so far from our homes.

You see her picture and the flowers in the background? It was a card given out during her funeral. The flowers were grown by her in her garden. I recalled seeing all the beautiful flowers she and her husband grew. Looking back it was such a blessing. I did not know God then. God is good, He gave me all the blessings even before I knew Him!

May my dear friend and auntie rest in peace. Amen.

Mongolian Orphans Singing "Rasa Sayang"

From 2010-04-05Mongolia Disc 1

Note: double click on the picture.

Once again something interesting from Mongolia (hope you like it ), our members taught the Mongolian orphans to sing "Rasa Sayang" a Malaysain folk song.

Be entertained!

Glory to God, He created us to learn! Eventhough the Mongolians did not know the Malaysian language, they had no problem singing! Hallelujah!

Mongolia - Habitat for Humanity

In 2005 Chiew Chung Yee, Su Lee Nah,Yonna, Ronnie,Alwin,Tim and Dianne Fonderlin,and others like Dr.Siew(Norma Hospital),Jeannette(Habitat Sabah),Dr.Garcia Tiong(KL),Miss Gee Fen Paw (Uk)joined Habitat 4 Humanity in Darhan, Mongolia to help build houses for the needy. It was a blessed experience for all of us. Just doing a little for those in need. Seeing those Mongolians happy made our day. This reminded me of the teaching of Pastor Isaac Yim recently to be "salt and light" to the world. In fact, I felt and still feeling more blessed in the little I gave to the Mongolians. All in we built about 7 houses. (just the foundations except for one completed house). I cherish the fellowship among our fellow Christians and non Christians as well as the experience of sharing a little with our neighbours the Mongolian. Mongolian Habitat coordinator Aagi took very good care of us. May God bless him, his family and his fellow Mongolians.

7 Ways to Live Out Resurrection Day Everyday

Last Sunday, in the pre-service prayer meeting Brother Teck Lim shared about “Resurrection Sunday” which is usually known as Easter Sunday. He also challenged us to live out each of our day as “resurrection” day. That is to live for Christ daily for what He has done for us on the Cross. The risen Christ died for our sins, and gave us eternal life.

We can learn to live out everyday as Resurrection day. Here are 7 ways:

Recognise your sin for what it is – if people know our thoughts and motives they would not think that we are good. God knows and the Holy Spirit convict us so that we change for the better.

Keep proper perspective of your state – We usually do not consul our heaven Father on what we do each day. We should submit to God everything at all times because He is God and we are not.

Give thanks where it is due….to God – We usually do not count our blessings, instead we complain when things aren’t right. In everything we should give thanks to Him, because He is Jehovah Jireh.

Worship the One who saved you – Give praise and worship to the risen Lord who had paid our ultimate debt by dying on the Cross.

Keep your focus and don’t waiver – you may have many distractions that prevented you from living a life that response to the resurrection, do not waiver stay focus on Jesus. In Christ you are a new creation.

Put God first and give him your all – God gave us His first fruit, Jesus His Only Son. Let our priorities reflect our desire to put Him first in what we do. Show Him He is the Lord of our lives.

Be heavenly minded while on earth – pursue the eternal while doing earthly good. Spread the Good News, and serve others.

Note: This is an adaptation of the article of the same name by Laura MacCorkle.

Resurrection Sunday

Pre-Service Prayer

Most people know that this Sunday is called Easter Sunday, but according to history "Easter" was a pagan festival adopted by Christians. Brother Teck Lim shared that it should rightly be called "Resurrection Sunday". We are to live each day in celebration of this great day and not only on "Resurrection Sunday". It is not about easter eggs and bunnies.

We are very encouraged that this morning pre-service prayer was attented by more than 30 members and the out-room was filled to its capacity. Some could not get in! Hallelujah! Praise God!

Youth Performance

Our youth performed a short skit, "Jesus and me", followed by a dance by several young ladies.

The Cross and Resurrection

Dr.Tommy Chung's sermon.

The significant of the resurrection was that God’s son was sacrifice for the world as God’s plan and desire. The salvation of mankind was immediate. If Christ was not raise from the dead, we would still be in sin and we would have been deceived.

Death of Jesus – Matthew 27:45-54. There was a release of power when Jesus died. He said “It is finished”. Some expected Elijah to appear, he did not. In fact Elijah appeared in the spirit in John the Baptist. Elijah prophesied the coming of the Messiah. Matt 27:50 Jesus cried in a loud voice signifying the victory of the cross, not defeat. Two cries a) with a loud voice, “It is finished”, b) Father into your hand I commend my spirit. Spiritually His death gives us a glimpse of what was accomplished: a) the curtain of the temple tore from top to bottom signifying His power b) the earth shook signifying deaf ears opening, c) The aftershock broke the tombs, signifying the raising of the dead. Even a non believing centurion testified that “surely he was the son of God” after witnessing the earthquake.

The Resurrection - John 20:1-18. Mary Magdalene discovered that Jesus was not in the tomb. She grieved for Him. She was persistent. Dr. Chung related her persistence to Matt 7:7 "Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you,” and also the parable of the persistent widow in Luke 18:1-8. Mary Magdalene saw Jesus but she did not realise because she let her affection overcame her reasoning. We are like sheep, and we listen to Jesus’ voice. John 10:27 “My sheep listen to my voice, I know them and they follow me”. John 20:17 Jesus asked Mary Magdalene not to hold on to Him but to spread the news to the disciples and others. The disciples testified to the resurrection of Jesus. Act 4:33 “With great power the apostles continued to testify to the resurrection of the Lord Jesus, and much grace was upon them all”.

Monthly Prayer Meeting

It is a new month again and our Church will be having our monthly prayer meeting this coming Sunday evening. All are encouraged to come.

In this slide show I have put up some very useful statements made by great Christians. I pray that you will be encouraged by these statements.

God bless.

Life Group - Good Friday

Last evening our Life Group had our pot bless cum evangelistic meeting where friends were invited to join us to mark Good Friday. There were about 50 people at our meeing. Two of our members shared their testimonies. The one share by our Sister Bernadine was very touching and encouraging. She went through alot especially about their two children when they were younger. One of them was said to be autistic, but by her prayer and rebuking in the Holy Spirit, it was a misdiagnosis. Praise God!
It was also very encouraging to see many younger people in our midst last evening. Brother Daniel led worship. Three trainee teachers, Tang, Jacob and Joseph led the ice breaker before the start of our worship. Praise God for His faithfulness! Amen

Friday, April 2, 2010

Good Friday

Let us take a moment to pray and to think about the enormity of the sacrifice of Jesus on the cross for human kind. It is such an awesome deed, that He sacrifice His life for us to heal our wounds as well as to give us eternal life, if we are willing to believe and trust in Him. What seem foolish to the secular world, God used it for the good of all mankind.

Jesus said in John 19:30 "It is finished". Completed! He has done everything for us! Praise our LOrd! Amen.

On- Line Escapism

Here is a sad story of a young Korean couple who indulged so much of on-line games that they neglected their 3-month old baby who later died of malnutrition. This story reminded me of 1Corintian 6:12 Everything is permissible for me”–but not everything is beneficial. “Everything is permissible for me”–but I will not be mastered by anything. . It is a reminder to all of us.

Read on...

The irony could not possibly be crueler. A South Korean couple let their 3-month-old baby starve to death at home while they spent all their time at Internet cafes—raising a virtual child.
The British Telegraph reports, "Leaving their real daughter at their home in a suburb of Seoul to fend for herself, the pair, who were unemployed, spent hours role-playing in [a] virtual reality game, which allows users to choose a career and friends, granting them offspring as a reward for passing a certain level."
Kim Yoo-chul and Choi Mi-Sun would go home once a day to give their real baby powdered milk, and then go back to lavish care and attention on their online child. The virtual daughter was named Anima; the real daughter was never given a name.
Finally, they came home one day after a 12-hour session to find their baby dead. They were arrested after an autopsy showed that the unnamed little girl had died of prolonged malnutrition.
Tragically, on the other hand, the virtual girl is probably doing just fine.
Like me, you're probably feeling a little sick to your stomach and outraged, and wondering what on earth could possess parents to do such a crazy thing. It's tempting to write them off as just plain crazy, or some kind of extreme example of Internet addiction or other mental illness. But the disturbing fact is that every one of us who has ever indulged in any kind of prolonged escape from reality carries the seeds of this kind of addiction inside us.
William Saletan puts it this way in the online magazine, Slate: "Look in the mirror. Every time you answer your cell phone in traffic, squander your work day on YouTube, text a colleague during dinner, or turn on the TV to escape your kids, you're leaving this world. You're neglecting the people around you, sometimes at the risk of killing them."
Saletan explains that gaming websites aren't just games, they're worlds—and those worlds "are becoming ever more compelling." When real life gets to be too much to take, we can now log on to a world where everything goes smoothly and circumstances are easy to control. So we become more and more susceptible to being lured out of the real world into the artificial ones.
And this latest story isn't the only example of the tragic results of that kind of escapism. Saletan notes, "At least two Korean men have died of exhaustion after round-the-clock video-game marathons. Another man, nagged by his real-world mother, allegedly resolved the dilemma by killing her. The dead baby is just another casualty of this war between the worlds."
Virtual community is no substitute for real community—the kind of community we're called on to help create in our families, churches, and neighborhoods.
These examples just show how dangerous it can be when we forget that responsibility. If it's true that we're facing a war of the worlds, Christians must take a stand for real life and real community. Reality may be messy and uncontrollable, but it's a priceless gift given to us by our Creator—and so much more fulfilling than any fake world, or fake family, ever could be.
