Light for Anxious Souls (by George Cutting)

George Cutting (1834-1934) was a faithful English evangelist and author, well known for writing the booklet Safety, Certainty and Enjoyment. His other lesser known work – but equally effective – is Light for Anxious Souls, which is reproduced below. This work will be a great help to anyone who is awake to both their condemnation before God and their danger of judgment, and who longs to be saved. Introduction If one thing more than another has weighed upon the heart of the…

Can Christians Lose Their Salvation?

Arriving at a clear understanding of the true nature of salvation represents the first step in settling the question of eternal security.

The DaVinci Code – A Christian Response

Dan Brown, author of best-selling novel “The DaVinci Code’, claims to know the truth about the greatest cover-up in human history. Though the information he discloses already existed in older non-fiction books such as ‘Holy Blood Holy Grail’ (Dell, 1983) and ‘The Templar Revelation’ (Simon & Schuster, 1998), it took what ‘The Boston Globe’ called a ‘dazzling performance’ by this previously almost unheard of American novelist to introduce this conspiracy theory to the wider world – first in print and…
