What are the police for? It’s not a trick question….indeed it is a vital question for the whole of our society. One key function of government is law and order – preserving the peace – stopping and punishing crime and protecting the public. We need law courts, lawmakers and law enforcers. I had always assumed that the latter was the function of the police. However … Continue reading The Thought Police of the New Revolution
6am. It’s another beautiful day. The sun is out in bonny Dundee and I am stuck on a hospital bed staring out of the window! Time for some reading and some listening. Earphones, an Iphone and Good Morning Scotland from the BBC on the radio. That should pass the time.! In hospital this time they have been concerned to get my blood pressure to rise … Continue reading Does the BBC Reflect or Shape our Society?
Once again the secularist sects in Scotland unite to attack me and claim that their position is the ‘neutral’ one. And once again I get the opportunity to expose their real agenda. This is an important debate and its good that we can have it in public and that the continual attacks of the militant secularists provide the opportunity to explain the Christian position in … Continue reading Atheist Schools – the Indoctrination of Children – Letters in The Courier
Sometimes one feels like a voice shouting in the wilderness, thinking that no-one is listening, and then something like this happens.

The report and editorial are below – as is the one from The Scottish Daily Mail.
The message on which this based can now be found on The Free Church Website

This is my latest article on the Christian Today website. I think it is a crucial issue for the Church today. Let me know you think, and if you find it helpful, feel free to pass on!
Have you ever been on one of those ‘all inclusive’ holidays? The kind where everything, from the beer at the bar to the food in the restaurant and the sauna in the swimming pool is included in the price. I have never managed that particular luxury but it strikes me that I really do want an all-inclusive church. One where everything is provided that is essential for spiritual birth, growth and renewal, and one where everyone is included.
It is often the boast of those who would style themselves as ‘liberal, open and progressive’ that they are ‘inclusive.’ They preach about wanting a more ‘inclusive’ church, often to their Continue reading “The All Inclusive Church”
The wounds of a friend are faithful. I regard Martin Saunders as a ‘friend’ and therefore his article on Christian Today as faithful. http://www.christiantoday.com/article/conservative.christians.are.losing.the.argument.heres.why/42742.htm It wounded. And then some. According to Martin my article on Steve Chalke’s latest attack on Evangelical Christianity was rude, discourteous, ungracious, unloving and not nice. Ouch! I accept of course that that sometimes happens at the more ‘conservative’ end. And … Continue reading Biblical Christians are Winning the War – Here’s Why – A Response to Martin Saunders
