Jesus preached a message that was
revolutionary in its day: love, forgiveness, service, integrity, trust,
humility, prayer, compassion, justice, and more. Yet too often in our world
today we see self-interest placed ahead of love and compassion, rule by the
powerful in place of justice and service, spin instead of honesty and
The message of Jesus has become
revolutionary again. Christianity is the new counter-culture.
I launched this website in April 2002,
intending it as a service to
Christians trying to live under God in a post-Christian world. In September
2002 I changed the name of the site, from MartinRothOnline.com to Martin
Roth Christian Commentary.
I try to write two commentaries each week. The latest is placed on the home
page, the others can be accessed from the archives page, or via the links in
the left and right columns of the home page.
In 1999, my book Living Water to Light the Journey was published.
Sub-titled "The Restitution of Spirituality and Virtue to Australian
Culture", it was a call for spiritual renewal in our society. Now out of
print, this book too is on the website.
There is more, including some articles I have written and an archive of the
weblog that I maintained for several months.
It is my prayer that this site will inform, stimulate and inspire.
I welcome your
comments and suggestions.
