CrossPolitic and Keller the Cultural Communist

On Sunday I had the joy of being interviewed on the CrossPolitic programme – You can watch the whole programme here – (my part begins around the 26 minute mark).   I throughly enjoyed talking to these guys (although drinking malt from a mug is almost beyond the pale!)  and hope it is the beginning of a fruitful relationship, but I suspect that they might … Continue reading CrossPolitic and Keller the Cultural Communist

Response to Prime Minister May – A Plea and a Prayer

      Dear Prime Minister, Thank you for your letter.   It makes reassuring reading for those of us who voted for Brexit and which you promised (along with the Labour party) to deliver.   According to your letter we are leaving the EU, the Single Market, the Customs Union, the CFP, the CAP and the ECJ. We will be free to make our own trade … Continue reading Response to Prime Minister May – A Plea and a Prayer

Tim Keller and Sinclair Ferguson on Christian Ministry

Tim Keller and Sinclair Ferguson are probably the most influential Christian leaders in my life and ministry.   It was therefore a joy to hear them both on this video speaking about ministry and life.   (If you don’t wish to watch the whole ceremony Tim Keller begins at around the 27 minute mark-  Sinclair at the one hour 27 ). Tim Keller always has this … Continue reading Tim Keller and Sinclair Ferguson on Christian Ministry

Tim Keller and Middle Class Churches

Back in the UK Tim Keller is in town amongst other things at the National Prayer Breakfast – giving what one FC minister described as a “robust and Christ-centred defence of the gospel before Prime Minister, MPs and clergy. A great encouragement and motivation to pray for our nation”.  Brilliant! It’s always good to listen to Tim who never fails to be challenging and stimulating.  … Continue reading Tim Keller and Middle Class Churches

Remembering the Reformation?

This is the lead article in the October Record…. This month is the 500th anniversary of the event that is assumed to have been the beginning of the Protestant Reformation – Luther’s nailing of his 95 theses to the doors of the cathedral in Wittenberg. There will be a variety of reactions to this anniversary, from studied indifference from the many to joyous enthusiasm from … Continue reading Remembering the Reformation?

Is Tim Keller the Art Heretic?

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?

If there is no Resurrection – you’re following a Dead Christ

He had got the attention of the … Continue reading If there is no Resurrection – you’re following a Dead Christ

Revelation 5 – Is Jesus ‘Post-Truth?’

Here is this weeks column in Christian Today….It is interesting that for the past couple of weeks one of the editors has published articles teaching God is not in control.  My column is a commentary on Revelation 5 linking it to current affairs.  It is not intended as a direct rebuttal, but it ends up being so!  See what you think…. Language is so revealing. … Continue reading Revelation 5 – Is Jesus ‘Post-Truth?’
