A.S.K 10 – The Uncreated God

BIBLE READING: Isaiah 40:21-31 TEXT: Do you not know? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He will not grow tired or weary, and his understanding no one can fathom (Isaiah 40:28). This is one of the most frequent and one of the most misunderstood questions I am ever asked.

Onward Christian Soldier – The Scottish Daily Mail

“O that God would gie us, the gift to see ourselves as others see us”  (Burns). “And those things when we hear, let us also make open show of our defects, but of our excellencies let us say nothing.  Or if the opportunity force it upon us, let us speak of them with reserve and impute the whole to God’s grace.”  (Chrysostom) The above words … Continue reading Onward Christian Soldier – The Scottish Daily Mail

The BBC and Christianity

Chapter Five of The Noble Liar  is entitled “Auntie the Apostate:  Losing Her Religion” .  It is incredibly insightful and helpful.  The following is a summary with some of the best quotes.  Read and think about this.  We have moved from the BBC broadcasting CS Lewis during a time of crisis, to the BBC now promoting the secular prophet, Richard Dawkins.  It has not been a change for … Continue reading The BBC and Christianity

A Prayer for the New Year – 2018

I used to find it really helpful at the New Year, not only to reflect on the Year that is past, but also to make ‘resolutions’ for the year that lies ahead. The usual ones (lose weight, exercise more, be more organised, manage my finances better, be nicer on social media, get off social media!) seldom lasted beyond the end of January. This year I … Continue reading A Prayer for the New Year – 2018
