President Trump  in the UK President Trump is in the UK this week and is receiving a mixed reception – as I wrote in this article there is a great deal of hypocrisy about this.  It’s somewhat hypocritical for those who lauded President Macron of France for welcoming President Trump for them to then turn round and complain about Prime Minister May doing so on a … Continue reading LED 27 – President Trump in the UK; The Supreme Court; The World Cup and the EU; Diversity and Identity Politics; President Duterte; Thai Joy; Professor Carlos Frenk

John Anderson Interview – Where is the West Heading?

I loved meeting John Anderson, former deputy Prime Minister of Australia.  He is a lovely Christian, with a sharp mind and  great understanding of Western culture.  I regard him as a highly significant figure – look at his website and you will see why.   It gives me some hope that there are some politicians like him.   His ‘conversations’ are superb….he has some great ones with … Continue reading John Anderson Interview – Where is the West Heading?

Persuasive Ethics

Many non-Christians have ethics but are also frightened that we are seeking to impose our strict ethical system upon them, while at the same time being hypocrites ourselves. For that reason, many Christians tend to shy away from ethics when seeking to communicate the gospel. This session looks like we are avoiding the traps of morality and accusations of political power-seeking whilst we are still … Continue reading Persuasive Ethics

The children are being indoctrinated into acceptance … Continue reading Let Them Eat Rainbows. The Sexualisation and the Poverty of Children

Does God Speak in Dreams? Does God Love Everyone? An ‘unfortunate’ answer from the Ligonier Conference

One of the great advantages of living in the modern world is that we are able to listen to conferences on the other side of the world – when they are live streamed as was Ligonier’s West Coast conference in the USA this past weekend.  I was throughly enjoying listening to the wisdom of the teachers who had been speaking. But then came an answer … Continue reading Does God Speak in Dreams? Does God Love Everyone? An ‘unfortunate’ answer from the Ligonier Conference
