Is there any such thing as a typical man’s life journey in finding meaning?

For lots of men, life can take a lot of turns, through dry gullies and dead end streets before coming to a saving knowledge of Jesus Christ.

The late evangelist Billy Graham reflected…

“We are preoccupied with material things. Our supreme god is technology, our goddess is sex. Most of us are more interested in conquering space than conquering ourselves.”

“We are more dedicated to material security than to inner purity. We give much more thought to what we wear, what we eat, what we drink and what we can do to relax…that to give to what we are.”

John Bryant, author of ‘Money, Sex & Eternal Life’ joined Neil Johnson on Vision Christian Radio’s 20Twenty program to share about his own experience of being driven by a “hunger gnawing at his soul”.

Initially John was an atheist and along the way to fulfil that hunger in his soul he was exposed to hypnotists, psychotherapists and sensitivity gurus.

He experienced the occult, flirted with Eastern religions, survived cults, mystics and false prophets. John looked for “effortless ways to make a fast buck”, before a dramatic encounter that finally opened his eyes to Christ.

“I’ve read hundreds and hundreds of Christian books, and there’s a lot of great stuff out there. But the one thing most Christian books are about is that they target Christians.

That’s great, because we all need encouragement. But I didn’t think there was out there, too many Christian books for non-Christians.”

John shares that “you’ve got to get a good way through the book before you realise where it’s going”.

Continue listening to John share more intimate details from his life journey in the podcast below.

A Bible Smuggler’s Story of Faith and Miracles

When Diana was 19, she visited Hong Kong and witnessed Chinese nationals being shot as they tried to swim across the Sham Chun River to escape Communist China. This had a deep impact on her, and twenty years later, God prompted her to take action after a lady gave her a book called God’s Smuggler by Brother Andrew.

Taxpayer Funds Supporting the Trans Lobby

The political climate in Australia is one of constant change, and that can make it particularly difficult for Christians to keep up. It is very important to hold our government accountable, especially when it comes to how taxpayer money is spent.

Living out Faith in a Hostile World

You don’t have to look any further than the most recent headlines to see that we live in uncertain times. Many people think the world has never been more hostile to Christians than it is now, especially since the cancel culture continues to target people who aren’t seen as politically correct.

The Lost Art of the Christian Wedding

Did you know that 4 out of 5 weddings today are performed by civil celebrants? In most Western nations, marriages have been traditionally performed in a church by a Christian minister or a priest. But preferences are changing. Our population has become more diverse, and one of the biggest changes is the number of people having secular weddings.
