London Journal – Wednesday, June 18

“While Paul was waiting for them in Athens, he was greatly distressed to see that the city was full of idols.” Acts 17:16

This is the response of all believers today.

When we see the masses of people around us who ignore God, worship false gods and pursue false religions, we are deeply troubled.

“God did this (determined the times and places where people should live) so that men would seek him and perhaps reach out for him and find him, though he is not far from each one of us. “Acts 17: 27

God invites (no, commands) us to join him in this great work of announcing to all peple that they can seek him and find him becasue he is already seeking us!

Today Mr. Debate led us on a tour of the Bristish Museum, to see the archaelogical evidence that supports the accuracy and reliability of the Scriptures; and then a tour of the British Library, to see, among other things, the Codex Siniaticus, one of the earliest known copies of the Bible, and to learn of the overwhelming manuscript evidence for the Scriptures, in contrast to the weak evidence for classical Greek and Latin literature. You must come to London and take this tour!

Rev. Elias Moyo joined us for late lunch after the tour. He and I first met 28 years ago at Roxbury Camp. He came from Zimbabwe to plant a BIC Church in London and by now has started not only the Forest Gate Church in London, but also five other churches in other cities across England. What a joy to reconnect with this godly leader and church planter!

Father, we thank you for the Scriptures, true and reliable, that point us to eternal life through Jesus Christ, your Son. We ask you to raise up more workers for the spiritual harvest that is all around us.
