Wesley Impact! TV: Dr Justine Toh
Famous atheist Christopher Hitchens once declared that, “religion poisons everything”. But was he right?
That’s the question Rev Keith Garner and Dr Justine Toh will be exploring in this week’s episode of Wesley Impact! TV as they discuss the real impact Christianity has had on the world over the last 2,000 years.
Justine is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Public Christianity where she writes and speaks about the Christian faith in the secular age. She recently helped produce and present an eye-opening and honest documentary called ‘For the Love of God: How the Church is better and worse than you ever imagined’.
“I think people are actually quite surprised when Christians are open about their failings … the public perception of Christians is quite different. People see Christians as holier-than-thou, as judgmental, as standing apart from other people”, said Justine.

Wesley Impact! TV: Jesus, the perfect priest
Rev Keith Garner opens our eyes to the unique ministry of Jesus as he continues his series on the book of Hebrews.
Rev Garner explains that in the Old Testament, priests were flawed human beings who ministered in imperfect ways to those around them.
But when Jesus entered our world, he established an eternal priesthood that was perfect in every way – and that’s great news for all those who put their trust and confidence in him today.
