Religious leaders discuss the word of God in this weekly feature. Published on Fridays, Church Talk discusses themes from the Bible as well as looking at current events in a Christian context.
“But if our Gospel be hid, it is hid to them that are lost...E teianei, te arai katoaia nei ta matou Evangelia, I arai’ia ia I te aronga e ta ia ratou uaorai” – 2 Corinthians 4:3.
“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven,” (Matthew 5:16).
This may be one of the first verses you learned in Sunday school.
“Because thou hast kept the word of my patience, I also will keep thee from the hour of temptation, which shall come upon all the world, to try them that dwell upon the earth” - Revelation 2:10
