Welcome to Spotlight Ministries
This is a Christian website focusing on apologetics (apologia = defence of the faith), theology, and examining other belief systems, practices, world views, new religious movements, sub-cultures and philosophies, in a respectful way. More about what this website is about can be found here:
Last Site Update - July 2014I was recently interviewed on the online radio show The Renewed Mind with Julian Charles. This began with a discussion about my ministry on the internet over the years and how this has moved into YouTube. I briefly highlight how and why Christians should be using the internet more in our outreach efforts and seek to encourage ways that this can be done. The main bulk of the interview, however, was on my testimony of deliverance from occultism and demon possession. If you enjoy downloading good quality Mp3s on a wide variety of interesting subjects I can very highly recommend all of Julian's podcasts. All interviews are free to download.
A Demonic Apparition Caught on Camera? You Decide!
New Book: Dancing with the DevilAn honest look into the occult from former followers. Compiled by Jeff Harshbarger. Available now for pre-order on Amazon.com and Amazon.co.uk for September 2012. Ten chapters written by former occultists of various stripes and persuasions who are now Christians (my own contribution is in chapter 8). Each individual either briefly describes their journey and/or provides practical help and advice to enable Christians better understand and reach out to our friends in the occult communities.
We don't want to hear the name of Jesus Christ blasphemed on TV or film!
Please sign the petition. Sick and tired of hearing the name of Jesus Christ constantly blasphemed day after day on TV and in film? It's bad enough that His name is constantly blasphemed by the average person in our western "Christian" society without having it reinforced by the media and Hollywood.
This petition has come about as I am sick and tired to the back teeth of settling down to watch a film and then suddenly, without warning, being subjected to offensive blasphemy. Even PG and 12 rated films readily blaspheme the name of Jesus Christ now. In stark and glaring contrast, the TV and film industry generally do not generally tend to disrespect and drag the names of other religious leaders through the mud (for example Mohammed, or Buddha). Why should we Christians stand for this?
At the very least, it would be helpful if DVDs, movies, and TV shows pre-warned people who find blasphemy offensive (as they do with swearing content) so that a prson can make up their own mind as to whether to view or not.
It would be nice if this petition picks up a pace and people in the media and film industry take some notice. As it stands, although I enjoy watching a film with a good story, and a bit of TV, I am reluctant to watch much of anything these days.
I find the blatant disregard and disrespect of Jesus Christ highly offensive and feel that something should be done about this. Please take the time to sign this petition and share it with your friends in the hope that someone, somewhere, in a position of influence might sit up and take some notice. Thank you.
Christian Evangelism on the Internet?
If you are a Christian and using the internet for evangelism don't let anyone try and discourage you by telling you its a waste of time, or you wont change anyone. Such things are not true! I thank God that, over the years, He has saw fit to use this website, the YouTube channel (Shazoolo), and now Facebook, to see many, many people set free and a number have even had powerful conversions to Christianity!
Jesus said: "Go into all the world and preach the good news to all creation. (Mark 16:15)
The internet is a mission field for Christians to reach out into. Let's use it to our full advantage while we still can! Soon, the world will try and silence us.
To share and explore ideas with other Christians on how to reach others for Christ on the internet join our Facebook group:
