Episodes

Friday Jan 26, 2024

In this special episode we talk to Aaron Edwards, who describes himself as a ‘theologian in academic exile’ after losing his job at a theological college following his now infamous tweet expressing a Biblical view on sexuality. We discuss the importance of being ‘shamelessly biblical’, the dangers of cowardice in the church, the term ‘outrageous grace’ and why many controversial issues we face in our western culture are indeed gospel issues. We hope this will be a challenging and encouraging episode for all of our listeners.

In this episode we have a look at the World Economic Forum who have just held their 54th annual meeting in Davos. We discuss some of their global objectives and themes, critiquing them from a Biblical perspective. We focus in on a few of their topics for this year including ‘Sustaining Life on Earth’, ‘Fixing Healthcare, Digitally’, ‘Net Zero Industries’ and ‘Preparing for Disease X’. We end with a dissenter in the ranks calling out the elites at Davos, and a sobering passage from Galatians 1: 6-12.

Episode 44 - Taking a stand

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

Wednesday Dec 13, 2023

In this episode we discuss the official UK Covid Inquiry, and contrast it with Andrew Bridgen’s impressive effort to convene an expert testimony panel. We consider the ongoing issue of excess deaths and why this is not being investigated with urgency. We look at the cost of taking a stand and speaking out for truth, and the dangers of staying silent. We finish with a mention of the ongoing situation in Israel and Gaza, and the COP 28 deliberations which included statements from the Archbishop of Canterbury and King Charles. Finally, a reminder from Psalm 24 that the earth is the Lord’s and everything in it!

Episode 41 - No replacement

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

Thursday Oct 19, 2023

In this episode we discuss the unfolding situation following the recent attacks by Hamas on Israel, and why it is important to approach the issue with a Biblical worldview. We talk about the way the conflict has been portrayed in the mainstream media, and the tensions which have arisen within the ‘awake’ arena. We conclude with a focus on the Bible and how God speaks through it to us today, and a reminder from the beginning of Romans that both the gospel and God’s judgment are first for the Jew and then for the Gentile, with salvation only through faith in Jesus.

Saturday Sep 30, 2023

In this episode we take a little break from considering issues going on in the world, to have a think about our Christian stories and experiences and how these have shaped our critical thinking. We discuss how we have grown in our faith and dependence on God, and how important it is to daily take up our cross and follow Jesus. We hope this will be both a challenge and an encouragement.

Friday Aug 25, 2023

In this episode we look at a few issues in the news including the possibility of a covid resurgence and return to masks, Christian Climate Action urging charities to boycott Barclays Bank, and a new network of scientists resisting the climate crisis narrative: The World Climate Declaration. We discuss the importance of being ready to answer difficult questions as Christians, in the light of singer Lauren Daigle’s failure to do so, and we review Jonathan Pageau’s very helpful explanation of the notion of conspiracy theories. We finish with some thoughts on the war in Ukraine, understanding the complexity of the situation and the role the West has played in fuelling the conflict instead of seeking peace. Our Bible passage 1 John 5:18-20 leaves us with a warning and an encouragement!

Sunday Jul 23, 2023

In this episode we discuss a few topics which have been in the news. We look at people who have being ‘cancelled’ for expressing political or Christian views and for challenging prevailing ideologies. We talk about climate obsession in the Church and the on-going agenda in the media against meat-eating. We end with discussion on efforts to restrict or ban prayer which mean we are not only losing freedom of speech but even freedom of thought. Our closing scripture is 1 John 4:5-6 which reminds us how to know the Spirit of truth and the spirit of error.
