My deepest gratitude goes to the late Rev Alan Tovey, for introducing me to Biblical Christianity. Never before, or since, have I heard better expositions of Biblical passages and their relevance to ustoday. He will be sadly missed.

Pure Christianity
Introduction
 No one’s life is free of stress.It’s how we cope with it that matters.We say that we have lots of reasons to be stressed and worried these days.What about our parents, grandparents and all before them?They would have had many reasons to be stressed, but life did not end. We are here asa result of their managing to make it through life. Their lives could easily be said tohave been much more stressful than ours, but in different ways. We sometimes speak and complain about it as if stress was only a twenty first century problem.I would imagine that those who went through the two World Wars and the worldwideeconomic depression in the twentieth century would gladly have replaced them withour worries about high mortgages, credit cards, commuting, and plastic surgery.Yes, we can be stressed. But we can also be happy. It depends on our approach to life.If you were asked to make a list of things that give you stress, I’m sure you could justas easily make a longer list of the beautiful things in life if you really thought about it.What are we faced with today? Perhaps your worry or stress results from one (or maybe all) of the following:Personal:
Broken relationships and divorces.
Lack of love and attention.
Depression
Low self esteem
Dysfunctional families.
Absentee fathers (or mothers)
Loneliness
Money problems.
Redundancy
Stressful job.
Selfishness
Arguments.
Teenage pregnancy.
Child abuse.
Domestic violence.
Drug abuse.
Alcohol abuse.
Alienation from society.
Obesity.3
