Special Notice – Spread the Word

Truth Reads Banner

How do YOU read the Bible? (and don’t say “with my eyes”  *grin*). Do you read it the same way as everyone else? Do you understand it the same way? Or maybe you have certain biases that you haven’t even noticed which you ‘wear’ as  ‘Biblical Spectacles’

Click HERE to read a short article concerning the varieties of Biblical Spectacles.

The second article I’d like to point you toward is one called “Today is the Day” and you can read it HERE. This short article concerns our mortality and serves as a very good reminder about just what exactly we are prioritising in our daily lives, and why?

Let us set our eyes towards Jesus, focus on things of the Spirit, and not the tat and ‘bling-bling’ of this world, and march towards.
Finally, if you haven’t yet had a chance to read “A Word of Witness”, please take this opportunity to do so and share with others. It’s about living life NOW, particularly in SOUTH AFRICA and I’d like as many people as possible to hear what I feel is a vital message. At the end of this post, you can read the comments others have made and add your own. Let’s make a change in this country people!

About Me

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.
