Fred Nile’s Easter Message

Addressing Parlimanet on March 25 2013, Rev Fred Nile MLC, leader of the Christian Democratic Party, stressed the importance of Easter and the need to repent to receive eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ. He quoted from John 3:16. Rev Nile said: “It is wonderful that God did so love the world that he gave his only begotten son. With that simple truth, it is a wonder that not everyone is a Christian.”  ”I urge everyone to give serious thought to the meaning of Easter this coming weekend.” To see speech from Hansard click here.
