Naturalchurch is the blog of Tobie van der Westhuizen. Tobie is a Bible teacher and cartoonist (you can see some of his work here and an interview by fellow blogger Chris Lovie-Tyler here) who is passionate about Jesus Christ and natural church life. He is married to Revien and lives in Bloemfontein, South Africa. They are parents to nine kids (no kidding) and a few crazy pets. They are part of a church that meets in their house.

Tobie wrote a weekly column, The Straight and the Narrow, for a local newspaper called Bloemnews for many years. Some of those columns have ended up on this blog, and some may still find their way here.

For those who are interested in a biographical sketch of Tobie’s life, such a sketch is provided hereunder. See if you can figure it out…

  1. “The Church has fallen away from the Truth in many ways, many pagan practices resulted in the great apostasy.” To name a few: Sunday keeping, relics, holy days. The Church has been impregnated with the “world-church system” that resembles a Christlike mind, but no Biblical Truth exists, merely a moral consciousness. The depth of the Truth is not present, and I trust that more will experience the quest for discovering significant Bible truth.

  2. Hello Tobie,

    Even Jesus said this Mat 7:13 Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide [is] the gate, and broad [is] the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat.

  3. Hey Dude, skryf ek nou op die regte plek? Ek het vandag eers jou enigste Afrikaanse stukkie oor die girl in die formalien gelees. Jy beter iets doen om voltyds sulke goed te skryf voordat jy in diep moeilikheid by die Koning is.

  4. Dankie vir die bemoediging. Ek begeer niks meer as om presies dit te doen nie!

  5. Henning, ek stem saam met jou!

    I have noticed that you do not have a “subscribe via email” widget in your widget area. Although I have followed you via wordpress, it would be nice to be notified of posts via email, which that widget facilitates. It is a default widget and easy to install and I am sure that if you install it, others who are not members of wordpress would also appreciate this option.

    Kind regards

  8. Hi Tobie,

    I read with interest some of your blog postings. My wife and I were saved over forty years ago and have been involved in a number of house churches during that time. I thought you might also be interested in our website http://www.ChristCrucified.info which I hope encourages and strengthens your faith in Christ.

    In Christ’s love,
    Peter Newman

    • Hi Peter,

      Thanks for the comment and visit to the blog. Your website is an absolute blessing and I will certainly visit it again. Some of your topics remind me of Norman Grubb’s writings. (I love his teaching on the 2 natures!). The need today is for an emphasis on the cross as Paul preached it, so thank you for your faithfulness. May the Lord bless your (his) work richly.
