In the last post “Before the Lamp of God Goes Out” we mentioned that the audio would be available for download or streaming online should you not be keen on reading the entire post.
As some of you may have noticed, we didn’t send out the audio last week as we have been doing new and exciting things and re-invented www.TruthIsTheWord.com for a better, easier to use, experience for you, so do let us know.
This is an important post, so please share it to whoever you feel needs to hear it. You will find links at the bottom of each post which allow you to share by email, post to your social media, or simply print it. We urge you to become lamps of God by sharing this word.
We will be unveiling and highlighting aspects of the new site in the coming weeks, but in the meantime please feel free to have a look and let us know what you think. In the meantime, here is the audio version as promised.
My name is Christopher Peppler and I was born in Cape Town, South Africa in 1947. While working in the financial sector I achieved a number of business qualifications from the Institute of Bankers, Damelin Management School, and The University of the Witwatersrand Business School. After over 20 years as a banker, I followed God’s calling and joined the ministry full time. After becoming a pastor of what is now a quite considerable church, I earned an undergraduate theological qualification from the Baptist Theological College of Southern Africa and post-graduate degrees from two United States institutions. I was also awarded the Doctor of Theology in Systematic Theology from the University of Zululand in 2000.
Four years before that I established the South African Theological Seminary (SATS), which today is represented in over 70 countries and has more than 2 500 active students enrolled with it. I presently play an role supervising Masters and Doctoral students.
I am a passionate champion of the Christocentric or Christ-centred Principle, an approach to biblical interpretation and theological construction that emphasises the centrality of Jesus
I have been happily married to Patricia since the age of 20, have two children, Lance and Karen, a daughter-in-law Tracey, and granddaughters Jessica and Kirsten. I have now retired from both church and seminary leadership and devote my time to writing, discipling, and the classical guitar. I have started a site called Classical Guitar SA to serve classical guitar enthusiasts in South Africa.
