The Wedding, the Sermon and the Reaction – Article on Christian Today

Before I go on to share the article I wrote for Christian Today I have to share from a really heavy heart.  This has turned out to be far more significant than I thought.  I listened to a man who denies the Gospel,  preach a Gospel that was no gospel at all and wrote an article about it.  As a result I received a barrage … Continue reading The Wedding, the Sermon and the Reaction – Article on Christian Today

Bishop Michael Curry’s Sermon – A Distorted Gospel Divides the Church

  “But there were also false prophets among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord who bought them – bringing swift destruction on themselves.

The Key to Understanding Contemporary Western Society (and whats happening in UK politics today)

A number of times I have used the phrase ‘cultural Marxism’.  After my piece on why we should not celebrate the birth of Karl Marx went viral I was asked what this phrase means?   It is actually very important and helps explain some quite extraordinary goings on in British (and indeed American and European politics). Working Class Tories and Chardonnay Socialists This week a poll … Continue reading The Key to Understanding Contemporary Western Society (and whats happening in UK politics today)

Ecclesiastes 8 – How to Live in a Corrupt Society

Stephen Pinker in his latest book Enlightenment tries to tell us that everything is getting better (thanks to the 18th-century Enlightenment which apparently had no dark spots at all) and that, as long as we get rid of religion, we will continue to progress to Nirvana.

In this regard I was intrigued by a proposal from the city of Hamilton in Canada to ban ‘hate groups’. The trouble is how one defines … Continue reading The Power of Hate
