Jesus and the Dinosaur (caption by the Rev Owain Jones)

20213_707162245975897_1317969362_nOwain Jones In sixty years on this planet, and thirty-three in the ministry of the Kirk, the Rev. Farquhar McGlumpher had never smoked a cigarette. But he’d been curious, occasionally. And now, here in the vestry, was one someone from the choir had apparently left behind. A rather odd looking cigarette, but there you go. Handmade…. Taking the box of matches that had been used to light the Advent candles, the Rev. Mr. McGlumpher lit it, and, feeling like a naughty schoolboy, put it to his lips and drew on it. He coughed, and then – the strangest thing happened…

One response to “Jesus and the Dinosaur (caption by the Rev Owain Jones)

  1. WHY WERE DENOMINATIONS CREATED?

    Were denominations created so the could teach the apostles doctrine? No they were not.

    Acts 2:42 And they continued steadfastly in the apostles doctrine and fellowship, in the breaking of bread, and in prayers.(NKJV)

    The Roman Catholic denomination was established so it could teach the doctrine of popes, cardinals, the doctrine of the Roman Catholic denomination.

    The Lutheran denomination was formed so they could teach the doctrine of Martin Luther.

    The Baptist denominations were brought into existence so they could teach the doctrine of John Calvin and that of Baptist preachers.

    Denominations were formed so they could teach doctrines contrary the doctrine of the apostles.

    Can you name one denomination that teaches the terms for pardon that the apostle Peter preached on the Day of Pentecost?(Acts 2:22-41 ……40 And with many other words he testified and exhorted them, saying, “Be saved from this perverse generation.” 41 Then those who gladly received his word were baptized; and that day about three thousand souls were added to them,)(NKJV)

    Peter did not preach. .1 Salvation by good works. 2. Salvation by Law keeping. 3. Salvation by grace alone. Salvation by faith only. 5. Salvation by saying the Sinner’s Prayer.

    Peter preached. 1. Faith; John 3:16. 2. Confession; Romans 10:9. 3. Repentance; Acts 2:38. 4. Water Baptism; Acts 2:38.
    Peter preached the apostles doctrine.

    Denominations were created to teach and preach the doctrines of men.

    Mark 7:5-13……”making the word of God of no effect through your traditions which you have handed down. And many such things you do.”(NKJV)

    Denominations were created to teach the traditions of men.

    If all believers in Christ taught the apostles doctrine, found in the New Testament Scriptures, there would be no denominations.
