TruthTalks (Sermon): How to Fight Fake News

Fake News is a manifestation of something more pervasive, misinformation. By misinformation I mean fabricated or manipulated information used primarily to influence people and further a specific agenda.

Misinformation can have serious implications and devastating effects on the lives of millions… and we are are all potential targets!

Recently I preached on this topic under the following points:

  • Types and examples of misinformation
  • How it is produced and spread
  • Generational shifts aiding the process
  • Strategies to fight against misinformation

TruthTalks (Sermons): Connecting the dots

People who doubt the authenticity of the Old Testament or the divinity of Jesus should listen to this message.

The Lord Jesus connects the dots between His life and key Old Testament events. By doing this He is in effect saying, “Yes, it is true, and I AM the one who did it!”

TruthTalks (Sermons): Agabus – A New Testament Prophet

In this sermon, delivered at the Lonehill Village Church on Sunday 24th June 2018, I spotlight prophecy in the book of Acts and then extend the subject into the church of our day.

Although by no means a comprehensive Bible study, this message includes insights from Paul’s treatment of prophecy in 1 Corinthians 14.

TruthTalks: What makes Christians so sure of their faith?

Basis for Certainty TruthTalk

We are living in a world where many regard truth as a quaint concept with little practical relevance.

Yet, despite this, or perhaps because of this, people choose to become dogmatically committed to ideas that have little relationship to fact, logic, or divine revelation.
However, in this TruthTalk (a follow-up to last weeks “The Basis of our Certainty”) and subsequent Q&A, I explore the Christian sure basis for certainty.

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.
