"But we urge you, brethren, that you increase more and more [in brotherly love]; that you also aspire to lead a quiet life, to mind your own business, and to work with your own hands, as we commanded you, that you may walk properly toward those who are outside, and that you may lack nothing."  1 Thessalonians 4:10-12  NKJV

           G'day, my name's Max, so welcome to my Brethos website.

IHS-WA.net  website editor /

 

This site has sprung out of the simple need for people, churched and non-churched, to be able to find relevant and timely information on the Christian Brethren (CB) churches here in Western Australia (WA). It is widely recognised that people are using the internet as their main source for info today, and are indeed unimpressed that a group or business would not have an effective presence on the net. So... welcome to my humble offering!

 

I know the Brethren are a suspicious mob and rightly so, taking the stance of the Berean church described in Acts 17:11, "These were more noble than those in Thessalonica, in that they received the word with all readiness of mind, and searched the scriptures daily, whether those things were so."  We all need to be sure that people are who they say they are, and indeed, that what they are saying is the truth. Even trusted preachers need to be brought to account if they stray from the plain truth of God's Word. So it falls to me to introduce myself so you can see where it is that I am coming from in the production of this website. I take comfort that even Paul had to explain himself on more than one occasion. I will aim to keep it brief. Just the facts...
