Religion Gone Wild, with Pastor Peter James

Continuing our sermon series on Acts, Paul's journey takes a rather dramatic turn. Paul has traveled to Ephesus, a city known for widely and openly practicing the magic arts, and beings trying to preach to the people. He is met with resistance, but the power of God is also demonstrated through healings and the expulsion of demons. This catches the eye of the magic practicing people who try and replicate Paul's success to disastrous results, they are attacked and driven from the home of a possessed man. Our God is a jealous God, He does not share domain with idols of any kind.

Even Saints Get the Blues with Pastor Peter James

Continuing our sermon series on Acts, Upside down Kingdom, we're looking at Acts chapter 19. Paul is in Corinth and is attempting to connect with the Jewish and Greek people, but is met with aggressive opposition. This puts Paul into a slump and it is through the assistance of people who will grow to be steadfast friends to him that he is able to pull out of it. Depression is a very real issue that is often over looked, alongside other mental health issues. The sermon post on Onrealm includes an excerpt from a sermon by Charles Spurgeon on the topic of depression, which Pete references in his sermon.

Jesus and Social Status, with Pastor Peter James

This week we're continuing our sermons series on Acts. We're looking at Acts chapter 16 and the story of three conversions: of Lydia, of a possessed slave woman, and of a Roman jailer. Looking at these three people there is a clear parallel between them and the social ladder of Roman society. We have Lydia, a wealthy trader of purple cloth and part of the Patricians, a Roman jailer, a member of the middle class or Plebeians, and a slave woman, the lowest of low in social standing. Jesus looks past all of that though and takes you in regardless of wealth, societal standing, race or background.
