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 - May 2013I 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 Julian's podcast. 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.
Sign the Petition for Traditional Marriage in the UK
If you live in the UK please sign the petition for the preservation of traditional marriage in the link below. The government is having a consultation on this in March 2012 and it could redefine marriage for everyone in the UK.
This campaign by the newly formed Coalition for Marriage aims to get the government to sit up and listen to people who still believe that marriage is for one man and one woman. The petition only started on Monday 20th February 2012 and has nearly 600,000 signatures! Very easy to sign. Just requires your name, an email, and your post code (however you must be over 16 years of age and be a UK resident).
While we still have some freedom of speech and religion in the UK we should act before marriage is redefined even further (even now some are talking about redefining it to include polygamy). This is not about denying same sex couples rights or equality as civil-partnerships have all the legal rights of heterosexuals. Rather, it is about the protection of traditional marriage from being utterly redefined. Please promote this petition on your Facebook, Twitter, blog, website etc. You can also download a paper copy where you can print up and take into your church. Go here to sign the petition: The Coalition for Marriage.
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 theis website and the YouTube channel (Shazoolo) 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.
'...making the most of your time, because the days are evil.' (Eph. 5:16)
Jesus said: 'As long as it is day, we must do the work of him who sent me. Night is coming, when no one can work.' (John 9:3-5)
