I'm a preacher's kid who had been turned off by experiences I had in the church. I felt judged and alone even attending my father's church so I left. Then one Saturday on my way to work scrolling through the radio stations, I found this ministry and God began to work in my heart. I finally came running back to Jesus' arms realizing he had never left me. I have been listening to and supporting this ministry since 2002, clear and sensible teaching I thank God for this ministry and pray he continues to bless it.
I am so thankful to God for providing Truth For Life! What an outreach! I do not need to move to Cleavland, OH for I can listen to Alistair Begg's preaching and teachings on the radio, online, and on the Truth For Life App.
Alistair's voice is easy to listen to. I enjoy his accent and how articulate his words are and how well he explains the Word of God.
Each time I listen, it grips me. By that I mean sometjing he says causes me to stop and think about how I'm living my life. Can I improve? Is there something I'm not doing right that I need to repent of?
The most recent sermon I watched through the App on my iPad. It was titled "Joy." It made me think how I haven't felt the deep Joy within me for a long time. The spontaneous, loving Joy of the LORD. And that's a good place to be because now I realize how I've missed it. That is an example of how "it grips me."
I want to say too that the title "Truth For Life" is a really good title. I don't know who was inspired to name it this, or how it came to be, but I hear the TRUTH, it Is for LIFE. Freeing, beautiful TRUTH bringing LIFE today and LIFE into Eternity.
Thank you, Alistair. May God bless you. And thank all of you who work at making Truth For Life come across miles and miles to like minded people like me. I rejoice!! And again I say rejoice!!
Praise our Savior! Precious LORD JESUS!
We have been listening to Truth For Life since its into music sounded like bagpipes!! The music has changed but the clear and concise Bible teaching has not changed. Alistair has a Bible teaching ministry that is rare in these days of "easy believism." The church in America may be a mile wide but it is only an inch deep. Since most pulpits have become weak, my husband and I have depended on Alistairs' sermons/teaching for our spiritual enrichment thru DVDs and CDs even though we are active in our church. We have been Truth Partners for years and will continue but we are delighted that materials are free to any who will listen or read. People need to hear about Jesus. You can trust this Bible teaching from TFL. God bless this ministry.
After my home church TFL is my number one place of modest return to God with a monthly donation for the following reasons:
- sound biblical teaching/resources throughout website
- Begg's preaching
- trust of other resources recommended by TFL
- trust that donation is wisely used
- my donation contributes to worldwide outreach
- knowing that God is blessing TFL's work because they are doing the right things
- I often use these resources in my own effort to share the gospel with others by sharing/forwarding sermons and other resources
If there were six stars or ten TFL would get all of them from me.
Christian radio first came my way via satellite in the year 2006. After hearing a few sermons that seemed to speak into my life I had to get a Bible and see if what they were saying was really in there. To my surprise it was and I quickly became a student of the Word. God revealed things to me about myself, about the world, and about Jesus Christ that I knew were true but had no explanation for before.After several years of reading the Bible, attending church, and listening to Christian radio I chose to become a Truth Partner because of the excellent Bible teaching and wonderful resources provided by Truth For Life. I am honored to be able to be a small part of such a great ministry. Thank you Alistair Begg and Truth For Life.
This program just reaches out and touches my heart in a truly profound way, sometimes to joyous tears. Alistair Begg cuts through all of life's sorrows and sagas, humbling me and lifting my eyes and my soul to The Lord. He is a dynamic gifted orator, reminding us in his firm loving brogue, that God is in charge, not us. This has been part of my morning routine on the way in to work and if I miss his show, I fall asleep to it online. Thank you Alistair Begg & Truth For Life!!!
This wonderful organization provides clear, relevant bible teaching to everyone free of charge. Alistair Begg is such a genuine and engaging teacher; you can really tell that he speaks from his heart. This is a resource that can truly help people's souls and improves their lives, if they are willing.
We have been listening to Pastor Alistair Begg for many years now.
I have been in church all my life, and i am 58 years old, so no newbie to the church scene.
With the evolution of the churches today into being more like the world in order to attract them, we came to a point of calling it quits with church(s).
I have to tell you it broke my heart-- as ALL our families on both sides , stopped going to churches years ago, because of "what is in the church".
I would be the one to constantly try to encourage them to get back into church- I'd tell them, keep trying to find a good one !
And then--- there we were!!!!, joining the ranks of "not going to church" because -we could no longer look the other way and stomach the MULTI crud going on at church.
Churches are now run more like a money making business and everything is acceptable, than a true body of believers. Hands down.
Alas, we started doing "church at home"
Being we live in the country and had low gigs for our computer, we would go up to McDonald's for the free wi fi and sit and listen to sermons, with one being- Truth for Life.
For several years we kept trying to find a church, to no avail.
Popping in here and there.
Only to have pastors affirming homosexuality from the pulpit, allowing in false teaches via book studies that are called bible studies, etc..etc...
And we could NOT tolerate it any longer.
All the years that we kept looking the other way, gritting our teeth and feeling sad at what we saw going on in the church we had been attending for years, finally came to a point of NO MORE and so here we were..
So after years of looking for a new church, we think we have finally found a small church to go to.
I shutter at the thought of ever trying to find a church home again as I know what we have gone through these last few years and in the 'bible belt" at that.
That in itself is a laugh.
Churches here are SO CONFORMED to the world, and the prosperity gospel, anything goes , it does makes me wonder often, what the Lord thinks of all of this? I already know the answer to that one.
With the political season going on and people debating how these non christians are acting, personally I don't have a big problem with it .
I EXPECT non christians, to act like non christians.
What I have a problem with is how Christians don't want to judge other christians and hold them accountable when THEY ARE amiss.
Judgement begins in the house of the Lord people, PERIOD.
Pastor Alistair is a breath of FRESH AIR of no compromise--- in a christian culture that is all about compromise and being just like the world.
Christians looking the other way-
Accepting things that the Word of God says is wrong-- in order to be politically correct. Whats with that anyway?
Aren't we not to be strangers in a strange land?
God help us in the church.
I'm beyond grateful for Alistair, and his ministry. All the material available is worthy of study. He is transparent as they come and he has a passion for telling it how it is, holds nothing back with such grace it's like having a true friend by your side, sharing about Jesus brilliantly!
Great, sound biblical teaching! Truth for Life with Alistair Begg is doing a wonderful job of handling God's word with accuracy and reverence. God has used Alistair and Truth for Life to teach me, convict me, and encourage and equip me in my faith. I highly recommend this ministry.
In the stagnant sea of wish-washy, feel-good teaching that has unfortunately become a hallmark of the evangelical church, Alistair is a bracing breath of fresh air. His clear, concise, Biblical preaching and teaching is presented in a way that is compelling, convicting and comforting. Highly recommend.
