Truth is the Word Returns

 

TruthIstheword.com by Dr Christopher Peppler is back with great book offers and exciting new content

 

On 25th October 2022 I advised everyone that for a while I would not be writing articles, producing podcasts, or posting related items on social media. A new year has started and as I prayerfully evaluate the past and seek direction for the future, I am pretty sure that I need to keep TruthisTheWord.com alive and thriving. So, starting on 31st January 2023 (this month) I intend to publish the first of a number of articles that I have been thinking about.

 

Here is a list of the subjects I am considering at this time:

  • The Glory of the Incarnation – Can we fully comprehend the wonder of Jesus becoming a man?
  • Stories about Heaven – What should we make of them?
  • Last Times – Will I do this again, see this again, interact with this person again and how can I make this moment count?
  • What really is Democracy – How does this affect us, non-political folks?
  • Forms of Church Government – How do they affect the church and its individual members?
  • Dark Matter and Dark Energy – Do scientists expect to find God in the very small or old… really?
  • Revival and Revolution – will these become the two poles of human society?

As an incentive to get as many people as possible back to reading Truth is The Word, I am reducing the price of all four of my major books on Kindle right down to zero. You, or indeed anyone else you inform, will be able to exercise this benefit from the 6th to the 10th of February 2023 on one or more of these Kindle books. Click on the following link and it will take you to my Author Page: https://amzn.to/3XceWfx

If you have any questions or matters you would like me to address or are interested in online bible studies and the like, drop me a note here or on my site at the bottom of the homepage www.truthistheword.com, otherwise, watch out for my new posts.

Session 6 is available on YouTube from 12h00 Tuesday 22nd March 2022: click this link to go directly there… https://youtu.be/NppqfxKe2E8

In this session there are no solemn warnings from Hebrews, but we rather focus on some wonderful and uplifting topics.  I cover a lot of ground but the highlight is the description of how the Tabernacle is a model and shadow of a heavenly reality. – you don’t want to miss the revelation of ‘the moving Altar of Incense’ and what it means to us today.

If you prefer to listen to the bible study as an audio-only version, just click on the play button at the end of this post. You can follow along in your bible in Hebrews 8.

In this session I deal with two important subjects:
  1. The nature of prayer (why we pray and why we pray the way we do), and
  2. Whether believers can lose their salvation.

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.
