On Friday I had the privilege of doing another ‘Unbelievable’ programme with Justin Brierley. The other guest was Jonathan Bartley, founder of Ecclesia and co-leader of the Green Party in England and Wales – another professing Christian. We were there to discuss whether, in the light of the Tim Farron affair, Christians are being excluded from public life in the UK. Although it was a … Continue reading Unbelievable – A Depressing Conversation with Jonathan Bartley
Brexit – There is of course a whole lot of things happening with Brexit just now. I am in the middle of writing a Dummies Guide to Brexit but for now I just note that, as I expected, the UK will cave into the EU on everything and we will leave the EU in name but probably not in reality. That’s because the EU … Continue reading LED 18 – Brexit; Graham Norton; Tim Farron; The Men who live as Dogs; Paedophilia; Education; YouTube Censorship; Kevin McKenna
This article originally appeared on Premier Christianity I had originally entitled it ‘The End of Liberal Britain?’ but I prefer the Premier title! By: David Robertson | 16th June 2017 David Robertson argues that Tim Farron’s resignation proves the Church needs to take a firmer stance on biblical truth The prophecy was quickly fulfilled!

“Woe to those who go down to Egypt for help, who rely on horses, who trust in the multitude of their chariots and in the great strength of their horsemen, but do not look to the Holy One of Israel, or seek help from the LORD.” Isaiah 31:1 NIVUK This is the third and final part of my reflections on my struggles … Continue reading Who Can I Vote For? – Part 3 – Who Would Jesus Vote For?
“Terror is nothing other than justice, prompt, stern and inflexible; it is not so much a particular principle as a consequence of the general principle of democracy applied to the most urgent needs of our country … The government of the Revolution is the despotism of liberty against the tyrants. Maximilien Robespierre” (from “A Place of Greater Safety” by Hilary Mantel) So having looked at … Continue reading Who Can I Vote For – Part 2 – The Personalities.
It’s apparently the burning question of the British General Election. Our society is obsessed with sex, and especially homosexuality. Or at least our journalists give that appearance. They seem to think that it is their responsibility and duty to ask any politician who is a Christian what they think of gay sex. Of course they don’t ask Sadiq Khan, or any Muslim politician … Continue reading Is Gay Sex a Sin?
This article was published on Premier Christian Website in response to Tim Farron’s recent comments re gay sex. A number of years ago we warned that the whole issue of sexuality had become the religion of our contemporary society and the shibboleth question. At first we were told that accepting the current liberal absolutist morality would be voluntary, but we knew it would soon become determinative and prescriptive. … Continue reading Another One Bites the Dust – Tim Farron’s comments on gay sex
I watched with keen interest our First Ministers speech at the SNP conference in Aberdeen last Saturday. I don’t really want to comment on the ins and outs of a potential IndyRef2, or of Brexit and everything else associated with it. There has already been enough said on that and I suspect many are already weary. Rather than offer a political opinion I would like … Continue reading Nicola Sturgeons Speech – A Warning for Scotland
Gottcha! She’s gone. Ding-dong, the witch is dead. After a weekend of vitriol and abuse Andrea Leadsom has had enough and withdrawn from the race to be Conservative party leader and thus Prime Minister. Even then the abuse has not stopped – after all it just goes to show that she is a weak woman and should retire to the kitchen – where she clearly … Continue reading Motherhood and Apple Pie – The Sins of Andrea Leadsom
Imagine the scene. You are a delegate at a packed SNP conference – with thousands of others. On a high because the SNP is still riding high in the polls and on target to become the Scottish government again. The SNP youth come forward with a motion that the SNP should support the Time for Inclusive Education (TIE). One delegate, teenager Gaela Hanlon … Continue reading Can We Have our Civilisation Back? Reflections on what the ‘inclusive’ SNP conference of 2016 Teaches Us
