In a nutshell, The Hottest Story. Ever. is a retelling of some of the major events in the life of Jesus Christ while on earth – His birth, His baptism, His temptation in the desert, His arrest and crucifixion as well as His resurrection, but from a rarely seen perspective, i.e. from the real Down Under. Yup, The Hottest Story. Ever. is the story of Christ’s ministry on Earth, told from the demonic perspective.

Although mostly fun, light-hearted and comedic, the drama also carries a perceptible tinge of darkness and boding evil at times. Seen through the eyes of Satan’s trusted agents, led by the outlandish Mephistopheles, the drama unfolds as a continuation of the age-old battle between God and the Devil which has raged since Creation.

Satan and his minions sought to strike a major blow at the Almighty by killing Jesus, whom they identified at His baptism, only to discover after that Christ’s death was part of God’s plan to save the human race! At the resurrection, the demons come to the realization that they have lost the battle and that their inevitable fate lies at the bottom of the Lake of Fire, which forces them to rethink their strategy…

Baptism - 4th April 2010 (Easter Weekend)

Hello youths! There would be a baptism on the 4th of April 2010. Anyone who is interested in going through the waters of baptism, please inform your class teachers, su or weng soon.

Baptism symbolises our death with Christ. Baptism come from the greek word "baptizo" which means to dip. Immersion best depict the symbol of death, burial and resurrection. In the early church, baptism was not an optional exercise. Every believer was exhorted to be baptised. God Bless!

Peter replied, "Repent and be baptized, EVERY ONE of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit." Acts 2:38

Lesson - The Disciple and the Beginning (6 Feb 2010)

OBJECTIVE: To understand sin, its power and influence over Christian lives.

Read Genesis Chapter 3
1.What do you think that caused Adam and Eve to sin? Can the same happen to us now?

2.How did God react when he found out that Adam and Eve sinned?

3.What are the consequences of sin during Adam’s time? What are the consequences of sin now?

4.Can we ever escape the consequence of sin?

The Big Rock

A little boy was spending his Saturday morning playing in his sandbox. He had with him his box of cars and trucks, his plastic pail, and a shiny, red plastic shovel.

In the process of creating roads and tunnels in the soft sand, he discovered a large rock in the middle of the sand box. The lad dug around the rock, managing to dislodge it from the dirt. With no little bit of struggle, he pushed and nudged the rock across the sandbox by using his feet. (He was a very small boy and the rock was very large.) When the boy got the rock to the edge of the sandbox, however, he found that he couldn’t roll it up and over the little wall.

Determined, the little boy shoved, pushed, and pried, but every time he thought he had made some progress, the rock tipped and then fell back into the sandbox. The little boy grunted, struggled, pushed, shoved-but his only reward was to have the rock roll back, smashing his chubby fingers. Finally he burst into tears of frustration.

All this time the boy’s father watched from the living room window as the drama unfolded. At the moment the tears fell, a large shadow fell across the boy and the sandbox. It was the boy’s father. Gently but firmly he said, “Son, didn’t you use all the strength that you had available?”

Defeated, the boy sobbed back, “But I did, Daddy, I did! I used all the strength that I had!”

“No, son,” corrected the father kindly. “You didn’t use all the strength you had. You didn’t ask me.”

With that the father reached down, picked up the rock, and removed it from the sandbox.

Do you have “rocks” in your life that need to be removed? Are you discovering that you don’t have what it takes to lift them? God is always available to us and willing to give us the strength we need to overcome obstacles and to accomplish great things for Him. “God is our refuge and strength, an ever-present help in trouble” (Psalm 46:1)

Beware of Curare

In 1799 the famous Prussian explorer and scientist Baron Von Humboldt discovered a potent drug called curare.

On an expedition into the jungles of Venezuela, he watched an Indian hunter bring down a large animal with a single shot from his bow and arrow. The arrow had been poisoned with curare, a potion with two curious properties, derived from the jungle paints.

Curare injected into the bloodstream, as it was when hunting animals, was deadly. It immobilized the body, attacked the vital organs, and caused death almost instantaneously.

Humboldt discovered the second property of curare in a more dramatic fashion. He became sick, and a native witch doctor forced Humboldt to drink some curare that had been diluted with water. Terrified that he was going to die, Humboldt was surprised to find that after drinking the curare, he felt significantly better. Curare, when it was diluted and taken orally, he discovered, could have a positive medicinal value without causing any damage to vital organs.

The key to curare’s impact lies principally in the way it is taken into the human body. Injected into the bloodstream, it’s deadly killer. Ingested orally, it’s a soothing muscle relaxant.

Christianity is a lot like curare. Its impact depends chiefly on how it is received. Many people choose to take it orally, diluted as much as possible, so that it has few side effects and makes them feel better- but that’s not the purpose of true Christianity.

Christianity’s purpose is to change us into new creations in Christ. In order for us to become new creations, we must die to our old selves and be born again, trading in our old lives for new ones. Those who want a “safe” Christianity that costs them little have a difficult time accepting death and new birth. True Christianity is not safe- it costs you your life. It cost God His only beloved Son, and it will cost you everything to follow Him. Paul wrote,” I have been crucified with Christ and I no longer live, but Christ lives in me” ( Gal. 2:20a).

Don’t settle for a watered-down version of Christianity. It can’t be taken orally. It has to be injected.

Beauty and the Beast

Do you remember the gripping scene in the animated Disney film Beauty and the Beast when the Beast was about to confess his love to Belle? Cogsworth looked on with euphoric anticipating, for if Belle pledged her love to the Beast, presto! The spell that hung over the castle like a dark, dank cloud of doom would finally be broken.

As she clasped hands with the Beast, Belle asked permission to gaze into the magical mirror in order to see her father. Viewing her father in obvious distress, she dropped the mirror and gasped at his plight. “I’ve got to go to him,” she sobbed.

“Go to him, then,” the Beast responded. Those four words spoke volumes.

Cogsworth later walked into the room with an air of triumphant expectancy as he declared to the Beast, “I must say that things are going swimmingly.”

All hope vanished into thin air, however, when the Beast uttered the most significant line in the film. “I let her go,” he confessed to his enchanted little clock.

As the reality of those words sunk in, Cogsworth shook himself and asked, "You did what?"

Can you imagine the impact of the Beast’s admission? To let her go was to plunge his kingdom into another season of a cursed existence. To let her go meant that all hope was lost of ever becoming normally human again. To let her go meant that he forfeited his last, best chance of ever being loved. But he let her go. Why?

“I had to,” he said. “I love her.” The Beast understood that a lover does not hold the object of his love hostage to his possessive grasp.

Perhaps a similar scene played itself out in heaven when God let go the beautiful angel Lucifer, who rebelled against God, determined to go his own way. “You did what?” Michael or Gabriel or some other angel might have asked, realizing that this action would bring untold misery and suffering upon God’s creation.

What about you and me? Though God could force us to love Him, He lets us go. “I love them too much,” He says. God loves us and allows us to go our own way, knowing full well that misery and suffering could be the result. Like Beauty, however, we have the option to come back, to change misery suffering into joy and celebration. Whenever one person comes back to our loving heavenly Father, the angels rejoice (see Luke 15:10)
