Waiting for the Lord’s Return

I grew up with some very mixed-up ideas about the Second Coming. I hope I have a clearer understanding of the subject than I had then. Of course, I still have lots of unanswered questions about the great event. But the question I ask myself more than any other is this: ‘how much do…

Navratilova is hoist by her own prohibitive ‘consequence free’ petard

Martina Navratilova has come under fire for claiming that it is ‘cheating’ for transgender women to enter female sports tournaments. Though she has now rolled back from the word ‘cheat’, she maintains her arguments bear consideration and should be heard without being vilified as ‘transphobic’.

Enduring the cross

Hebrews 12:2 tells us that Jesus ‘endured the cross’. Loch Ness is a narrow stretch of water, yet it reaches depths exceeding two hundred metres.

Tale of two cathedral cities

London and Gloucester, two cathedral cities, have taken very different approaches to public Bible reading in recent weeks. London’s St Paul’s Cathedral no longer dominates the skyline amid the rise of skyscrapers but its vast dome is unmistakable. Often presented as a symbol of hope — one thinks of the famous Second World War…

The Haldane brothers and the quest for evangelical unity (2)

Link to Article 1 Link to Article 3 Noble as the ideal of evangelical union was; and hard as the Haldanes worked during the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, to see it realised; in the end they failed.

COMMENT: Sexual sin amongst church leaders

Both here and in America, there have been a number of cases of evangelical church leaders caught in, or accused of, sexual sin. There have been allegations of affairs, cover-ups, cases of abuse and hypocrisy. Some of them have been proven. Others not. It’s all very sobering and heartbreaking. All sin is serious. But…

As one animated sitcom in America wryly pointed out, Christian rock music doesn’t make Christianity better, it just makes rock and roll worse. It’s a fair summary of pretty much anything we try to do as Christians in the name of marrying Christianity to whatever passes as ‘wicked’ or ‘wizard’ among the youth these…
