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

I am in the Netherlands this weekend – saying goodbye to some dear friends and looking forward to worshipping in Dutch today.   Last Sunday we continued our series in Romans.   Two very different services – in the morning we looked at the role of the Church in politics – the relationship of Church and State  (it’s not as dull as it sounds!) from Romans 13:1-7 … Continue reading Romans 13:1-7 – Church and State.
