The Religious Thought Police are Here

This weeks column in Christian Today – for the original click here – The Religious Thought Police Are Here The Saudi religious police, like their Iranian equivalents, have a duty of Hisbah, enjoining good and preventing wrong. To many Western eyes it seems, and is, an authoritarian attempt to enforce doctrine and practice. It could never happen here – or could it? Last week I was … Continue reading The Religious Thought Police are Here

The Final Sunday – Romans 16 and a Fond Farewell.

This is such a strange day – for the first time in 27 years I am not responsible for the conduct of public worship in St Peters.  Of course I have been away from St Peters before on a Sunday – but this is different.  Then I was returning – this time we have left.  As someone said last week – ‘this is like a … Continue reading The Final Sunday – Romans 16 and a Fond Farewell.

Was Churchill the Greatest Briton?

This is an old article I wrote about Churchill – which I was reminded of as I was working through old papers.   It still seems relevant today (although it was written in 2003)  Churchill – The Greatest Briton?  I have just returned from a great holiday in the Netherlands.  No computer. No TV. No phone (apart from the occasional mobile – yes I am one … Continue reading Was Churchill the Greatest Briton?

A.S.K 3 – Does the Bible Condone Slavery?

I am grateful for the enthusiastic response so far for A.S.K and for the encouragements from others: This one is from a man I greatly admire and respect – whose job is to work with teenagers. ‘If you’re a teenager trying to follow Jesus it is more than likely that you’ve asked most of the 52 questions that David Robertson tries to answer. These are real … Continue reading A.S.K 3 – Does the Bible Condone Slavery?

Peter Hughes.    Peter quoted extensively (as did The Mirror)  from my article Parents Take Back Control – The April Record Editorial which he read on this blog.  … Continue reading Vicar ‘under Investigation’ for Quoting The Wee Flea!

The Lost Message of Chalke

Sometimes in life I have to do depressing things – reading Steve Chalke’s latest book was one of them.  The Lost Message of Paul is a depressing book for any biblical Christian with any degree of intelligence to read.  It’s shallow, superficial, dishonest and disingenuous.   But it is important that Christians know about this.  Chalke is now a wolf amongst the sheep….I wrote this review for my … Continue reading The Lost Message of Chalke
