Good old Tim Keller has been up to his tricks again – preaching the gospel, engaging the culture, applying the Bible, growing the church. So time for a wee take down – lest he get too big for his boots….time for the reformed world twitterati to do the Holy Spirit’s job and convict Tim of sin, righteousness and the judgement to come (and not to … Continue reading Is Tim Keller the Art Heretic?
This article is now on the Premier Christianity website Dear Ricky, Loved your appearance on the Stephen Colbert show – two of my favourite entertainers discussing the most important subject in the world – what’s not to like?! I would like to answer some of the questions you raise in the clip below. I have heard you raise them several times before as though they … Continue reading Ricky Gervais v Stephen Colbert – The Real Answers- An Open Letter
“Q: Why doesn’t @theweeflea, director of Solas, have a single #Reformation tweet on or around #ReformationDay?” This is the tweet that broke the camels back! Every couple of months an American fundamentalist called Chuck O’Neal, tweets a message which is then retweeted to me several times by his followers, identifying me as a friend of the Antichrist and a counter reforming heretic in the midst … Continue reading Popery, Psalms and Protestant Pharisees
This months appearance on the Janet Parshall show was as enjoyable as ever! The subject is very important – the increasing publication of books about Jesus (see Krattenmaker’s above) and suggesting we can follow him without being a believer! One difficulty is that far too many Christians think that at least its a good thing that people are talking about Jesus and view these books … Continue reading Confessions of a Secular Jesus Follower – the Janet Parshall show – September
I am delighted that the series on Revelation Christianity Today asked me to do has gone down so well. The articles that are usually the most popular are those that have testimony, sex, controversy and those of the ‘five ways to be a biblical pet owner genre’! So whilst I really enjoy writing these and think that Revelation is the best biblical book for … Continue reading The Living Christ, the Real Presence and Real Salvation – Revelation part 2 (ch.1:4-18)
Mike Rand is a former policeman. He is typical of millions of people today. Not anti-theist but someone who is open and seeking and has lots of questions. As you will notice when you listen to this dialogue we had on Unbelievable – Premier Christian Radio I loved being in the studio with Mike and Justin. Since the recording Mike has read Magnificent Obsession and we remain … Continue reading Why Mike Can’t Believe – ‘Unbelievable’ Discussion
Its been some week! Not least in terms of writing and contending for the Gospel and all hell has broken loose! For me Easter is a good time to remember that death is dead, Christ has won, love has conquered. Although I happen to think that we should celebrate every Sunday as the Day of the Risen Lord. Here is the latest in my … Continue reading The Ultimate Proof – The Resurrection of Jesus – Apologetics 101 – no.10
This is the heart of everything. The key question for theology, evangelism, apologetics – indeed all of life. It is the question of Jesus Christ – it is why we are Christians and not just Theists. My latest article on Christian Today – click the link for the original….here is the text. The Question – The young man at the University of Stirling made an astonishing statement, … Continue reading Jesus is The Reason – Apologetics 101-No.7 Jesus
I am writing this from Stornoway on the Isle of Lewis – the last time I was here was when I spoke at the Lewis book festival – just ahead of Richard Dawkins. Coming into the airport set me to reflecting on that and reminded me of this wee Christmas ‘video’ card we made! This was three years ago – and again it was a … Continue reading The Dawkins Letters outselling The God Delusion!
Christian Focus are having a special on Kindle on my books Magnificent Obsession and The Dawkins Letters as well as Why I am not an Atheist. I have written this Christian Focus Blog to accompany that. The text is below. The Dawkins Letters was not a deliberate book. Towards the end of 2006 I had just finished reading Richard Dawkins The God Delusion. I felt somewhat frustrated that a book, which … Continue reading On Writing the Dawkins Letters
